Self auto flash reccomendation
In reply to grapher, Mar 7, 2012

I've discovered only recently this topic and I'm delighted high sync speed limit can be overcome. I'm really disappointed in fill capabilities of E-PL1's built in flash against a brightly lit background, especially in the summer. I'd like to try some flash that has self auto, but I'm having trouble finding a smaller one. Nikon SB-30 would be the perfect choice, but it's very hard to find. Can anyone recommend another small flash? I've searched Guy Parsons' and Michael Meissner's flash lists, but there are only a few self auto small flashes... Could Metz 20 C-2 do the daylight fill for subjects up to five meters? Looking at the back of that flash, I'm a bit confused by 20 C-2's lack of F8 setting. F5.6 at ISO100 needs a bit more than 1/320 outdoors.
