If there's one area in photography that I really know nothing about, it's flashes and lighting. I just ordered a K100D and I'm wondering about an external flash. Do I need one? How often will the built-inflash not be good enough? If I do want to buy one, which one? I saw the two that Pentax recommends for the K100D. The cheapest of the two is $250! :shock: Are there any flashes available for less that will work as well? I have so much to learn.

I don't know much about flash photography, but here's a thread that will explain lots about flashes, why you might want one, what type of flashes can work with the K100D and so on. Great reading!
