Hi. I was wondering if I have to buy a sony flash for my alpha 200. I
could get a better deal if I shopped around. do the wireless
connections work as standard?

Any camera can use any flash as long as the camera has a way to trigger the
flash; that means it needs a cord from flash to camera or a hot shoe.

A wireless flash can be triggered by the light from the camera's built in
flash as long as the remote flash has a "photo eye". It can be done with
infrared too.
