    Default flash for cambodia trip

    Going to siam reap soon.
    Is flash a must for the temple shoot?
    And any places/tips to recommend/give?
    Thanks in advance.

    I would prefer to use a tripod for longer exposure shot than a ext. flash.

    hi shanng, no easy answer to your question... all depends on what effect you're trying to achieve, and what the lighting conditions are at the location of your shoot.

    i tend to agree with megaweb... using a tripod instead of flash will result in more natural looking pictures. still there may be times you want to just light up the shadows and dark areas a little using fill-flash. this can usually be done using the built-in flash. if a tripod is not allowed, then brace yourself against a wall, a column, or something.

    good luck. wish i had the chance to make such a trip...

    hey, i went there before. siem reap nice place. even the villigers love to be photographed. gone to the children's home also. should have much problem, it's a bit sandy there. 2nt thing. if u are to bring tripod, its gonna be a lot of climbing up and down in the temples. might be uncomfortable for you. backpacks are not prefered cos u should noe why. i not sure if all the place allow flash cos i notice the last time that another guy using flash at some god got stared by the locals.

    Like what others have said, it is not easy to advise on this.
    I didn have much use for flash the other time i went there except for the few insects i shot along the way.

    It really depends on your shooting.

    Alternatively u can bring along and see It is not that bulky and heavy
    Might give u a better idea if u need it on ur nxt trip
