For photography enthusiast, having an external flash is a must.


...but having a flash set WITHOUT a DSLR camera is kinda stupid.

There are several reasons why professionals don't use built-in flash:

1. On-camera flash is more likely to create red-eye in your portrait photos
2. The light is harsh, direct and always comes from the direction of the camera
3. Many cameras don't allow you to control the intensity of the built-in flash
4. Built-in flash units are less powerful, and can't light large areas effectively

Picture shown below shows the difference between a picture taken without flash; vice versa.

Just joking :P


bila aku mok ada aku pun DSLR kedirik tok~
