Watching NZ rally tv coverage at the weekend and there seemed to be a few togs using flash guns. This got me wondering 'do I need one for the GB? ' That obviously depends on weather and light conditions, but I have been looking through some of the recent rally pics on here and cant find any exif that shows a flash has been fired (in daylight). I would love to see some examples of daylight fill-flash pics (good or bad) to help me decided.

You wouldn't capture me using fill flash. Anyway the weekend was so wet, I wouldn't risk the flash getting wet. As it was, I attended the final drifting round in NZ on Sunday, instead of the rally, and my flash fell out of my bag, through the small zip opening, and now it's not working properly.. :(

I was very close using wide angle. Wanted to show some speed, yet brighten up the color from the very harsh low angle sun. I was only about 5 feet away from the kart.

This is one I took @18mm with the kit lens and the pop-up flash. It wouldn't work much beyond this distance I dont think.
