    Ok I know I did the piece on this subject but just thought I'd see what happened if I tried using onboard flash. I used a sheet of white card to try and bounce some light back and it's not too bad - a bit of noise removal and sharpening afterwards. I reckon a separate light is better though!

    Used a snoot over the off camera flash unit, your onboard flash got me thinking, hot and miss though, tricky holding the flash in one hand the camera in the other and directing the light where it's needed, too lazy to mount the camera on a tripod (g)

    Get the tripod out you lazy wotsit and see if you can get right over the drops Smile A constant lightsource is definitely preferable to flash - worth the experiment though!
