View Full Version : High School Basketball shots

10-29-2004, 06:52 AM
I am looking at buying an FZ20 or FZ3 for taking basketball action shots inside high school gyms. I have been using a Pentax SLR with a 300 mm zoom lens with a powerful flash. With this setup I have been able to get good shots from one end of the gym to the other. I need to know how much I will be able to use the 12X zoom without the flash or if I need a more powerful flash? Or should I be looking at another camera!!! :rolleyes:

this is a tricky question.. :rolleyes:
1st what flash is it, can you use it on a FZ20 ?
safe voltages

flash info

consensus is the pana flash gun is underpowered..
hope that helps a bit..
