I finaly found a way to get some really sharp bird pictures with my p850...

I wanted for a long time since I got the p850 to see the birds feathers on the pictures like I was doing with the dx6490 !!

After using an external flash on the p850, I was able to see some good details:-)

You sure did.

But are you saying the light from the flash reached the birds?

Nice shots boily. The details of the feathers realy came out.

Is there a good flash unit that works with the p850 or is the p20 flash from kodak the one to get for this camera

I think the p20 is the best flash for the p850 but in these pictures, I used my dad's old slave flash and it worked well !!
