Here is my problem and I am curious if an electronic flash will solve this problem.I have a Canon Powershot G2. When I use the flash on subjects about 6 to 10 feet away in auto mode, the photo is overexposed (I think that is the right word). The flash in the face is too much and doesn't look natural. The flash is quite powerful, but I don't know if it is the strong power of the flash or the directness of the flash that is causing the problem.So I am thinking that if I purchase an electronic flash (Canon Speedlite 420EX flash) for around US$170.00 that that will solve this problem.Now, I can change the strength of the flash in the G2 if I do not use auto mode but one of the other modes (can't remember which ones at the moment) but I find that those mode are more sensitive to shaking so I tend to avoid them.I'm not exactly excited about having to carry around another flash as the G3 is already too heavy. But if this solves the problem, I guess I'd be willing.I'd appreciate any thoughts you have on this issue. Also, do I need a swivel flash head or not. The non-swivel flash head is around US$125.00Thanks. ToroBravo2003
