Itty Bitty Flash

Ann,

Was that the one in the slot canyon?  I may be mistaken, but I believe it was the pop-up flash on his (then) D30.

Ann,

The D30 is now several generations out of date.

Yes, the pop up flash is built into the viewfinder housing, so it sits above the eyepiece.  The photo below of the Canon EOS 20D shows what I mean.  The Canon Digital Rebel XT also has a pop up flash. This can be handy if you need a little fill flash or a catch light, but it's not very powerful.

Hi, All -

In a past issue of the Video Journal, in which Michael was photographing Antelope Canyon, he had a VERY small flash on his camera that was putting out just a little light to bring out the dark patches and highlights.  Does anyone know the name and manufacturer of this product?

My searches of Luminous Landscape and the Forum have not turned up this information.

Thanks,

Yes, Paul, he was photographing in a slot canyon.  

I gather the popup flash comes with the D30?

With most hotshoe flashes you can shoot on Manual, and simply turn the power way down.  One of mine goes all the way down to 1/128 of full power.  The body of the flash may not be small, but on that setting the output certainly is.
