I don't understand it. The bigger the event is, the more flashes you see. It is wonderful to watch and gives a great sense of occasion, but is there a particular reason for this? Almost every camera that is taking pictures seems to flash. Isn't it useless?

Yes, the camera´s embedded flash are useless in a such circumstances. People uses them simply because the automatic mode they are using decide to trigger the flash. Most of them have no idea what does it means and a number of them even know how to disable the flash...

All the best,
