Answers :

On many sony models such as the dsc f707 and f717 and probably on your model as well ... sony uses a special flash that actually flashes twice .. it does it so fast that it looks like one flash .. the first flash sets up the metering.. the second takes the picture .. so if you try to use a standard flash you will get a dark image since they only flash once .. so you have to use a special flash attachment that is capable of double flashing .. sony, of course, makes them (HVL-F1000) and some outside suppliers as well .. sony calls it "intelligent flash"

here is a low cost "auto slave" flash for your camera:

you dont have to hook this one up .. it uses the normal camera flash to trigger itself .. so you can move it around to get lighting effects or mount it on the camera to augment the normal flash

if you just want to use the internal flash (good to 8 feet) then here is some info ....
