I'm mostly an outdoor photographer and I enjoy taking family shots, like this....
....but on freezing cold days and early dark evenings here in New England, like Christmas, all of my candid portraits will be indoors.
In the past I've relied my Canon 430EX on camera, bounced off the ceiling, etc - Manual, SS 1/100-1/125, ISO 800-1600 or so for some ambient and adjusted the EC on the flash accordingly, for shots like this....
But, I just sold my 6D and I will be shooting everything this Christmas with the Sony A7 and Fuji XE1 for which I have no ETTL flash, other than the on-board flash of the X-E1.
Question is - should I just mount the 430EX on the A7 and XE-1 and shoot the flash manually? Would you expect the lighting from room to room in a typical house to vary enough to make this a nightmare or is it do-able?
Or should I just pony up for a flash that offers ETTL on the X-E1 or the A7?
