 :) Thanks sir Winston!  I checked it out, seems fine but would it suffice as a main flash especially in covering events? What power is recommended when covering events such as weddings?

BTW, I use 1000d, would this be compatible?

TIA again!

 :)

it's because your lens doesn't have a fixed aperture. check the specs of your lens, you'll see how wide your aperture can go on its widest focal length and when it is on its longest focal length.

Yong Nua YN-460 flash. Around 2,500p. Available with several of the sellers at the Marketplace section of the Forum.

Hi Sirs! Just a newbie question here. I'm also looking at this Yongnuo YN460 Speedlite as an inexpensive onboard flash for a Nikon D40 for bouncing flash off ceilings for indoor photography. As I understand this flash will function as a full manual flash onboard any camera.

- Is this correct?
- Will this flash suffice for the purpose of onboard camera flash for bouncing light off ceilings?
- Do you foresee any issues or problems that I may encounter?
- Is there a possibility that this third party flash may damage the camera if used onboard given that its not an OEM product?
- Could you give me any suggestions or alternatives if you think this flash is inappropriate or there are better alternatives?

Hope to hear your thoughts on this.

Thank you!  ;D

Can you share a sample pic?  It's usually caused by light bouncing around inside your lens/filter.  Removing the filter may help, but sometimes the lens itself may be prone to flare.  If that's the case, learn how to create it and use that knowledge creatively!

Like HartSord mentioned, removing the filter may help... if the problem is lens flare - we can't know for sure until we see a sample image. 

If it's the lens itself that's prone to flare, stopping down (i.e. using a smaller aperture) may help.  If it doesn't totally eliminate the flare, it might at least make it smaller and less noticeable.

kung hindi mo masyado kailangan ang 18-27mm at 76-105mm, at kailangan mo ng constant f2.8 then by all means palitan mo yung kit lens mo. :)

Mga sir at ma'am need ko po yung advise nyo... ano po bang tips pwede nyong ibigay when it comes to B&W/street photography balak ko po kasi magfocus sa area na yon and will a CPL filter help in anyway? and when it comes to lens naman po ano po kaya magandang lens? naisip ko po kasi gumamit ng lens na may mas mahabang zoom para i won't have to go that near sa subjects ko since street photography yung gusto ko (para po maiwasan ko yung pagka-ilang ng subject sa cam)

thanks po and happy new year to all! ;D

You don't need a CPL. An 18-200mm lens would do for your needs.
