There are many ways to get a usuable flash picture.

For example, difused, a basic method is a white cloth/paper towel held in front of the lens.

"bounce flash", using a reflector.

Two or more flashes using master/slave combo.

This site has the answers to most problems associated with the mini-lathe.

Some are listed under "premium", but worth the expense.

I have it under consideration, talked to a couple of owners, they were pleased.

The BLUE SB comes to mind.

Anxious to see it after resurrection
