He was a monthly columnist for many years for SHUTTERBUG magazine, and has contributed to many others. Most recently he has written about the pre-WW2 Zeiss 35mm cameras, but his interests in camera equipment and optics are many and varied. As a pro protographer and honorary life member of ASMP, Peter is also expert in using the gear! Peter Kitchingman - author of Canon Rangefinder Lens book Peter Kitchingman's 'Canon M39 Rangefinder Lenses 1939-71' book is the definitive source on these very interesting optics. His interests also go to the entire Canon Rangefinder system and beyond.

Speedlite for Canon P suggestions?

Anyone have a recommendation for something that can PC sync?

I love doing portraits with on camera flash.

I don't know through experience, but a Sync-cord A on a 133D or 102 Speedlite will work as the cable turns the 'hot shoe' base pin off - as long as the sync cord matches the left-side sync. Somewhere I also have one of the Canon adapters that attaches a (cold) Speedlite flash shoe on to the sync mount and prevents impeding the sync port on the body. I hope this makes sense, otherwise lots of searching and photographing this stuff could take a while. Even a 155A or 299T could do the same as the Sync-cord A works with them and the A or T series flashes have their own sensors.

If you're up for a hammerhead flash then look at a Metz 45 CL-4 with PC sync cable.

You get 360deg swivel, 90deg bounce (with separate fill flash), flash autoexposure, fast cycling, decent power - and it makes a pretty effective melee weapon should your model object to your directing style.

They're also dirt cheap, which leaves you extra pennies for post-shoot beers.
