So I present the Lightscoop Test:
Lightscoop and Flash
These are all SOOC, taken at night with only an overhead light fixture
Lightscoop recommends you set your flash to +2. Since I don't know what this means on my camera, I wasn't sure how to change that setting. Hopefully once I figure it out, the difference will be even more dramatic.
No more discarding the camera once the sun goes down and lamenting missing key snapshots at family events. I cannot wait to really test drive this baby!
