Sorry for those reading this post in the newbie section. There is no reply there thus I think maybe I ask the question in a wrong section. Mod, sorry for the double post. If possible help me del the similar post in "newbie" section. Sorry for the trouble.
Well, I have been playing with my S5IS for sometime and done many event kinda of shooting. However, due to the long recharge time of the build in flash sometimes precious moment are missed. Because of some low light condition, it's not possible to not use flash. And S5IS's inbuild flash recharge time can get as long as 5sec which is too long.
So I have been contemplating on whether buying a external flash will solve the problem. Will it be a good investment to get a external flash from the speedlite series? Or is that an over kill for a non Dslr?
How fast can a external flash recharge? Will it be the perfect solution for the problem I am facing?
