Im deciding whether to get myself an external flash unit.
Currently the factors pushing me to get a flash is:
1)i want natural lighting instead of flash ie bounce flash??? (built in flash just creates the obvious flash effect, so i prefer to use slow-sync but this creates motion blur which isn't really good)
2)the 16-105 lens im using is blocking my built in flash
3)built in flash can't illum my subjects standing at a distance sometimes
4)not so much but better images in indoor shooting. i cant even do shooting in my own house right. Whenever there are things going on in my house the pictures i took are crap. i had to reduce my AE so the shutter can be fast enough. ISO400, Min F
Are there any other options i can take? I'd really like to save my bucks where i can. I'm already looking at Sony's F43AM which seems like a really great package. advices?
