    One of the reasons I got my F3 was the built in flash. One great thing is that it is adjustable to be a bounce flash

    Bounce shot looks almost studio-like. What ISO and aperture was used for the bounce shot?

    I was in the car waiting for my wife and had the camera in hand. I HAD to take a picture of something.

    Attached was the 19mm Sigma. F2.8, ISO800, 1/60 Speed.

    I've got a question:
    You took that shot while in the car - Where did the flash light bounced??? What colour is the car's headlining?

    Yes, bounced off the headliner. And it is gray.

    I also got the F3 for this same reason and I gotta say that the bounce flash really makes the pictures look really nice. I am going to post few examples when I get home.

    Hopefully you can tell which one is the ugly flash and the bounce flash :)
