  1. Awesome! And I can see the dual flash :) Posted 5 years ago
    1. And I must say that I only used camera's built-in flash, and I had the reaction immediately after seeing some shots on LCD's preview. Only took some shots before he fly again, and in each and of them the double flares were there. One of the flares must be the midday sun! ;) Thank you, Ferdy for your appreciation and feedback, cheers* Posted 5 years ago
