->> I usually don't pay attention to rumors, but a pop-up flash on the successor to the 5D? Who's idea was that? I'd much rather have $15 off the purchase price and not have to worry about knocking the camera against something and having the flash explode like the one on my 20D.

Also why all the new numbers? Why not just call things MkII, seemed to work alright for the 1D.

->> The pop up flash on the 5D replacement was probably market driven because the Nikon D700 has one. The majority of people buying these cameras are not working journalists.

Isn't that only for nikons? Unless canon is putting in an in-camera flash system like nikon has.


on that note, i really wish they would do that. LOL.

->> Pop-up flash might not seem important to some here, but it is nice when you need to add a touch of fill and you're traveling very light.

Galen Rowell, the famous landscape photographer, used a FM2 for much of his work, but would take a Nikon N80 with him in his fanny pack when he'd run/hike in the Sierras. He had several very nice shots he'd taken with that body and used the pop-up flash to bring up his foreground subject.

The pop-ups have a limited range and tend to cause bad reflections because they're so close to the lens axis, but they are good tools in the right situation.

->> Pop-up flash can also be used in a pinch to fire "big" lights via the good ol' fashioned optical slave. Sort of a way to MacGyver yourself a radio slave if your PW is busted.

Better buy more gaffer tape. Grin.

I've had pop-ups on my D100, D200 and D300. Can't remember the last time I ever used them. The lenshood on large zooms always get in the way of an even flash distribution. I use the Nikon SU-800 to remote trigger my strobes.
