My sister recently graduated from college.  I just purchased an Olympus e-30 camera as an upgrade to my e-620 and was excited to use it in a low light setting.  The graduation took place at the Showare Center in Kent.  We were pretty far from the stage and it was almost dark.  I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get very good pictures.  I brought my 50-200 zoom lens and my FL-50R flash to give myself the best chance of getting good shots.  To my surprise and joy, the combination worked quite well.  I was able to get some pretty sharp images from where I was sitting and the FL-50R was able to cover the distance to the stage.  Most of the images were shot at 800 ISO and there was very little “noise” in the images.
