Do you really care about a built-in flash?
Jun 10, 2013

I keep coming across serious gripes (as in being a total deal breaker) from time to time about the Olympus OM-D not having a built in flash.  Am I the only guy who virtually never uses a built in flash?  The light which almost all built-in flashes produce has always been something which I avoid like the plague.  Whenever possible, I prefer natural lighting, but when a flash is called for, I'm quite happy to throw on a decent strobe which allows me to adjust the intensity and direction of the light throw.  Am I the only one out there who thinks like this?
