Question about Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera
I am having trouble with taking pics at night. i am taking pics at night at a softball game, which means i am some what a distance away from the players. i have tried upping the iso so i don't have to use a flash. (i know, i know) i tried different settings, also manual with playing with the aperture and shutter. i also tried using the flash. i will try to up the flash strength next game to see if that would help. i am probably thinking i need to purchase a flash, but want to make sure i have tried everything. i just bought this camera and i don't want to use "automatic" for pictures. i want to learn everything about this camera using different settings. so far i have heard great things about this camera, i have taken some really good pictures in a gymnasium w/no flash- which was surprising. PLEASE HELP!! any suggestions will be greatly appreciated....
If all you do is photograph sports at night, don't buy a TTL (through-the-lens) automated strobe. Get yourself a Vivitar 283 or a 285 and shoot it at manual flash. Adjust your f-stop accordingly. They are available at ebay and used camera stores.

On camera flash will not help in out door sports facilities. If you have maxed the ISO and set it to Aperture priority -which will slow the shutter down and give you camera shake and blurred images as the players dart about- Ho Hum you ain't going to win this one. Buying a bolt on flash I doubt will be powerful enough either, take what you can and get to grips with a good image editor- Though I guess the results will still be 'noisy'
