Also, having a flash gun doesnt naturally guarantee a better photo.
True, it is hard to debate when you guys have no idea how the condition was at that time. But from my own experience, in that kind of mid day 12pm sun with little to no cloud cover, a flash would definitely help. I know a professional photographer who relies on natural light almost all the time unless necessary, but I dont think this guy did. He was shooting from low angle (he was below a flight of stairs) so everyone's heads was tilted down and with the mid day sun, I'm sure u can imagine what might happen. You don't need to be a pro to imagine, isnt it?
Ha I think I saw that thread recently about some sony user blocking everyone at some cosplay event.
it was quite an lol thread.
but I did meet a few people who think that if you are not using a nikon or canon, your camera isn't good. And some of the "famous" shops in Singapore were advocating that when I went camera shopping with a friend recently. Makes me wonder about the master photographers using non-canikon systems...
