The onboard flash will work fine, but it needs to be diffused someway. I have used a sheet of tracing paper to diffuse it. I'm now using an old Sunpak ring flash I got for cheap from KEH. It works great. There are a lot of cheap LED type ring flashes on ebay that may work ok. The Pentax AF280T shoe mount flash will also work as it will tilt down 15 degrees, and you can get a stofen diffuser for it.
I think I'll buy or make something that diffuses my AF200FG flash down in front of the macro lens:
If anyone else has other ideas of cheap products or home made items please share.
Here's a free idea:
