Hi Fish, for me I never use flash in streetshooting, it's disturbing to your subject IMO. That's why a fast lens is important here. I have three fast lenses: Canon 50/1.8, Sigma 20/1.8, and Sigma 70-200/2.8. As long as there is some natural light, I have no need to use flash. If light is bad, will push ISO to as high as 800 and wide open. Compared to birds, pple r much easier to freeze so have no complain here. I almost never use Auto/P mode coz dont feel enough control with them. At any time, you must be very careful about light condition, especially with telezoom and shooting actions. I cannot hand hold a 70-200mm steadily without a high shutter speed (e.g. >1/focal length). But fortunately I shoot in digital so dont worry abouth wasting film. And if an action is really great to me, will use burst mode - 3 fps!Originally posted by fish
