Very happy with the Yongnuo 560-TX Wireless Flash Controler in combination with YN-560 IV Flash on my A900,
the smart flash controller can control up to 6 groups of YN 560III and IV flashes,
You can change the power and the head zoom wireless directly from it.
Of course all is in manual mode only up to 1/250sec, no HSS, ADI or TTL.
The box of the mine 560-TX says "for Nikon", but I think that and "C" versions will work without problem, it's just for the sleep functionality.

For the controller on the camera I'm using one of these Sony/Minolta Hot-shoe adapters and all works flawlessly - YN-H3

Anyone got these triggers to work with A99? A7 users seems to have no problem.

Been reading up on this combo, seems that it would also work with the later model a77ii/a99 hot shoe?

Be nice to be able to control power level remotely

A great collection of info! Overload for my simple mind though perhaps. I still have my trusty a700, but I've misplaced my wireless trigger. The receiver is an old Paul Bluff Cybersync, but can't seem to find a transmitter. The receiver works great and very reliable. I was wondering if there are any Cybersync transmitters out there or should I go with new stuff? Or will a transmitter of a different brand work with the Cybersync receiver? An abundance of new options are available( such as Cowboystudio NPT-04, 4 Channel Wireless Hot Shoe Flash Trigger Receiver for Sony Alpha Digital lSLR Camera and Sony Flash available at Amazon for $25!). Or any other option? I'm horribly lazy, so if you have recommendations:
Transmitter and links?
Receiver and links?
Sony hotshoe adapter and links?

Fall is portrait season as well as landscape season for me so I need something quick!

Thanks in advance!
Sam

New to speedlights, but wanting to get one (for now) and a trigger for my a77ii. Will this one work?

As the page says, it will work with Canon cameras. Yongnuo doesn't make advanced flashes for Sony cameras, so that one would be a waste of money.

Either go dirt cheap with any flash that just provides basic flash features, or pay more for a flash designed to work with Sony's advanced flash system.

Thanks, I guess that's what I'm asking. Which more advanced do work with Sony?

Phottix Odin, Phottix Mitros+, Pixel King, and Nissin Air 1 are the radio triggering systems that support Sony's advanced features. For a camera with the Multi-Interface shoe, like your A77II, I personally would choose the Nissin. The commander unit and one remote flash costs $299.

Thanks! I'm totally new to flash, but been studying about it a while, time to get to actually using it. I'm debating whether to get something cheap and manual non hss for now, like the Yongnuo 560 iv and 560 tx controller to learn manually, or go for a more expensive and full featured one now, like the Nissin.

^ Yes, there are pros and cons to both approaches... and there are other approaches as well. There's Sony's built-in optical wireless system, for which you don't need to buy a radio controller, and also third-party 'dumb' radio systems that don't support remote adjustments. Each solution has its place, depending on what you're doing and how much you care to spend.

I recently purchased a NPT-04, 4 Channel Wireless Hot Shoe Flash Trigger + Receiver, they are for the older Sony/Minolta shoe but I bought the Sony ADPMAA Shoe Adaptor for Mi Shoe. When hooked up, the trigger will flash but not while taking a picture. They only work when the on camera flash is in the up position. Is this the norm?

No, it isn't. Oddly, someone at DPR recently posted the same question:

What camera are you talking about (not that the camera model should make any difference)?
