external flashes give your pics better results when used off-cam. if no choice but to mount on-cam (like in events), bounce the light off walls/ceilings rather than straight-on. lastly, read up/google/youtube more on strobing, you'll find it a very interesting side of photography.

have fun with lights!

beside reading the user manual, searching google, youtube, you can also read this book, can be found in our national library.

Good luck! If confident then agree to do. If not confident, say your skill not there, so you can set expectations.

Good luck. I think you will need it.

Can't rem now. Not the high range one lah. Should be low range model.

So far ok. I got it cheap, so play for awhile first
