That's a good looking photo, Bill-

Thanks for posting. We are in Copenhagen today.

Sarah,

I hope the trip is going well. After getting such good photos with the S5 in natural light, I wanted to do the same with flash. The photos and tutorial you've posted let me know it's possible.

Thanks, Bill

Bill-

For its price, the Canon S-5 is a rather amazing camera. Here is a good example photo taken in Russia using the S-5 and the EX-430 flash. Notice how well the action was stopped.

Bill-

Here is another photo taken using just the S-5's built-in flash with Auto ISO. This was a cooking demonstration, and you can even see the Paremeasan Chesse falling on to the the pasta.

Fantastic shot, especially with a built-in flash!

Hi Bill-

You are so correct! The built-in flash ismore capable than some folks might believe. The key with the Canon S-5 is to use the Auto ISO setting. It will limit the ISO setting on the S-5 to a maximum od ISO 250, which is the ISO used for the sample photo.

Good to hear from you Bill!
