shot this at f/4; what a bummer. Would be a lot sharper (and more DOF) if it were around f/6.3-f/8. Nonetheless, the DA15 doesn't disappoint.

I was using a HMC UV(C) from Hoya, which shouldn't be a problem, theoretically.

oh yeah I was using a filter. Maybe that's the problem, cause I didn't use filters on my other lenses. :)

If I remember correctly, the purpose of the pop-up flash is to send a signal to the flashgun, so the strength of the pop-up flash doesn't come into the factor that contribute to the firing of the flashgun (like the IR remote control). However, you must have the flash gun in the line-of-sight of the pop-up flash for the latter to transmit the signal over. I think this is what they call optical flash triggering or something.

I wasn't able to turn off my camera's flash so I set the pop-up flash to the lowest output (-2 EV), so that it wouldn't "blow" my subjects. That way, the pop-up flash was more of a filler than the main flash.

Hope this helps. :)

nope, not that I know of.... And I didn't use radio trigger; I just used optical wireless slave. Either I stretch my left arm or I asked one of the two (they are my friends btw) to hold the flash. Hahaha. So they took turns holding the flash and getting their picture taken.

...brought it out last week to a gig. It's performance was really really disappointing. The flares are unimaginable, to a point where I felt like throwing the lens immediately and use my Pentax SMC lens (which is by far leagues ahead of Tamron in terms of flares).

and my favourite photo from the gig has got to be this multiple exposure.


even in this photo, you can see those horrible flares on the right side. There are photos where the flares are on the person's eye and crotch area, which is, IMO, damn funny. Hhahaha
