    erm, dun really understand what u are trying to ask here.
    ext flash shouldn affect your WB, adjustment of WB is more to suit e surrounding lights, not e light from your flash though. (i might be wrong. )

    eer.. I'm using D70, thus when mount on the ext flash, I still be able to select the white balance. I understand that there's no right or wrong to stick to a certain WB type when using flash due to creativity intend, my question here is, is it choosing "flash" WB will be more appropriate.?

    and new/ last questions.. what's the different using omni bounce and to bounce card? If DIY bounce card, any strict dimension to stick with?

    Thanks folks..

    omni bounce will not be very useful if the ceiling is very high, in that case a bounce card is better, bounce card also helps in adding catchlights in a person's eyes too.

    for DIY card, no fixed size, as long as it not so damm big that u have problems attaching it to the flash and it blocks the view of the person to the left right and behind u... anyway, normal DIY sizes i notice are about a 3R photo size.

    Actually.. Dim lighting with certain amount of grain or noise does give a nice effect... Especially if you can capture a little motion blur (1/30th - 1/60th) with front/ rear sync..
