NX200 Bundled Flash - Bounce Mod
Jul 8, 2012

An external pop-up flash doesn't always have to be a "con" on your list...

Below i included some pics how to mod your bundled NX200 flash unit from a direct flash to a indirect/bounceable flash !

Like most of your's, mine was just lying in my closet too (I hate direct flash), so I went for it and started to "Dremel" the little unit (check out the photo's for more details + results)...

Works perfect so far, but it is a bit "loose" now (no friction) so for direct flash you have to hold it with your fingers or else it "falls" down flat.

I also added a little sticky tape to hold the unit in place when carrying it around.

Circumstances can make the flash a little weak (bouncing from higher ceilings e.g.),
but the flash power output can be modified in the NX200 menu !

This little mod makes this camera a lot more versatile imho and even with the flash mounted it still remains fairly compact & jacket-pocketable thanks to the "flat" position.
(in combination with pancakes ofcourse ;-))

I even bounce this thing from sidewalls in portrait-mode.
