Is there a bracket that fits onto the DX 6490 camera or do you have to use a stand or hand held arrangement. Also what flash works the best for you?

Pablo, check this out. http://cgi.ebay.com/Flash-Bracket-L3...QQcmdZViewItem

This is like the one I use, and I'm pretty happy with it. The flash unit attaches just like on a camera with a hot shoe. I use the SunPak 383 Super flash unit and I am happy with it.

Hope this helps.

Bob

Look at this one. Works fine for me with my DX7590 and DC4800

Thanks all for taking the time to send these ideas. I should be able to take some flash photos soon.

Hey guys, Bob, Brian, Dan, Cwodave, is there an advantage of having the the flash mounted on the bracket left of the camera away from the camera as shown in your post? My little flash bracket mounts the flash right above the flash on the camera. Just wanting to know if it would give you better coverage or another type of advantage?

Thanks Darrell

The further away from the axis of the lens the better for redeye reduction!! I like it offset because when I look up from the viewfinder it's not in the way!! Also the flash bracket gives you a hand hold for better stability!

Whatever Da Dawg said goes for me too.....LMAO

I just had the chance to give my Sunpak 383 super auto a workout this weekend at a family birthday party. It just plain amazed me at how much better the shots came out. No more worries about shoting people with the bright daylight coming in through the window behind them. No more worries about staying within the installed flash range. No worries about the lens adapter causing under exposes shots.

I still need more practice but it did good and I got some great shots at the party. I Just stay in 'M' mode when I come indoors, shoot a couple test pics to get things set right (or almost right. lol) and then I'm ready. I had a little problem with ISO settings this time but nothing that couldn't be corrected with PSP-9. I guess I learned something. Next time I'll be better. lol
