    A TTL flash system uses a sensor in the camera to measure the flash Thru The Lens, which is more accurate when taking extreme closeups or using a long lens.

    i dono about fz50... but if panasonic flash TTL is as accurate as nikon, basically you can just leave the flash at default TTL setting 95+% of the time, as it gonna be accurate.

    o ic, so the strength of the flash whether too harsh or softer is determind by this TTL sensor rite?

    most of the setting on flash are done automatically using TTL... but there will be time where it is inaccurate, and this is when the user should do some adjustment like increase/decrease flash exposure.

    I think harsh/soft means TTL accuracy...not exactly strength. For a flash strength is determined by its guide number...

    what kind of power source it draws? rechargable or AA batteries?

    the flash, in this case, what the second cs-er had suggested Olympus FL-36 or Nikon SB800

    most flash uses 4x AA batt... recharage or alkaline will work.

    Olympus FL-36 using 2x battery only (better using NiCD rather than NiMH)
    SB800 using 4x.

    if Nikon SB600/800 work well, might want to look at the new SB400... RRP was stated to be at around US120, that would mean it will be around S$200, and maybe lesser for street price.

    haha, more like we all need to learn from each other. I just picked photography up in May when I bought the FZ10 second hand so I'm also pretty new Anyway the FL36 has a GN of 36 (metric @ ISO 100 ), so plenty of light for fill flash even if you bounce and swivel the head

    hmm Thats one option too, for what I know the GN is about 21M @ ISO 100 for the SB400. The actual price will matter, for if it is at 200 SGD or above then I'd rather source a second hand FL-36 for a bit more and get the full TTL functionality too
