<p>E-3 day 3 - Let there be light! <br>
Well now we have to look at a issue which has always bothered me. Built in flashes. Unlike having the ability to use use AA batteries for backup (Which I really like), I have never liked built in flashes. In fact, out side of the L-1 which has the ability to bounce the flash I have always hated built in flashes. In my opinion they are a total waste of time. In fact, I vowed one time to never buy a camera with a cheap consumer flash built into it. Well here we are a few years later, and I have a camera with a flash. </p>

<p>This flash isn't to bad. It is able to capture what I need when we were walking around, however, I did get a couple shots where the hood did show off a shadow, and red eye was present. </p>
