I don't know anything about Minolta equipment. Anything is better than the built in flash.

I am already setting up my equipment for the Novak race, almost a month early.

What kind of camera do you have ....I've been experimenting with the "other than the auto program setings" of my D70 and have found that changing ISO and altering white balance settings does WONDERS on indoor photography!!

I have a D70 and a Nikon D2x. I haven't used the D70 since I got the D2x.

minolta a200 it's not a slr but I only paid 6 for it. figured the flash will help bigtime. not sure on the iso and f stop and white balance stuff might play with that too. but I know I need a flash for sure.

Don't forget, the IIC is on Inside RC Tomorrow (Monday Dec 11th).

From their website:

IT'S VEGAS BABY! That's right - Anna and the crew were on hand for the Electric Indoor Championships in Vegas. 550 commpetitors gambled at the chance to become the 2006 Champion in several different classes of indoor carpet racing in this great event put on by Scotty Ernst of Trackside Hobbies.

D2x ...damn that's a nice rig!! ...so indoors do you always use flash? ...we went on vacation to Diesneyworld and a lot of the shows/rides don't allow flash photography which is why I read up on and started experienting with the ISO and white balance stuff ...basically if you can see it "with your human eye" you can get pretty close to a nice pic without flash (I say close because I still haev't gotten 100% hang of it).
