Based on your latest post..I think I get what TS is saying...
It's easier to understand the intention of the photog from his tone and body language than just what he said. In other words, condescending? If he weren't he would at least stop to look at your shots and advice proper, not a one liner that's obviously belittling your equipment.
Not sure why you guys are even bashing TS without giving him the benefit of doubt.
In any case, built-in flash should more than suffice for fill-in flash, barring wide angle coverage. Not sure if the photog's trying to be funny.
