NX200 Bundled Flash - Bounce Mod
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.
