A simple tip for Monday

Every been to a rugby or football match? Even taken a little compact camera with you to capture the action? If you can answer yes to both of these, then do you remember seeing little flashes going off all around the ground?
Only yesterday I was watching the England-France game on TV and seeing loads of little flashes firing all around the stands. Seriously, do they really think the flash will help?

If you're ever in that situation, make sure you turn the built-in flash off - it'll reach about three meters at most so unless you're pitch side and the action is in front of you, you're wasting your time.

As a reminder for why this may be the case, see the latter part of this post on Speedlite flash - the box with the formula is the bit you want to take note of!
