Random question #7



Camera flash

Why do people use a flash at large sporting venues and concerts when they are sitting 2 miles from the action?

I need to do a public service for a moment…

Using a flash for something more than 6 feet away is useless unless you have a professional camera with an external flash. Even then, the distance is very limited. You are better off saving your batteries and just trying to take the photo while holding still. I know on some new cameras and even disposable ones this is impossible…so for those of you in that seat: are forgiven. Everyone else, please stop using your flash.

This message brought to you by the letter ‘B’ for battery, blinding-light, bologna. Thank you.
