Then, go for it !
I'm even considering buy one more.
Mine is always loaded with 1600 color neg. I would like to have one for B&W.
NP mode tends to over-expose by 2EV or bit less with high speed film(DX code). It means that say, DELTA3200 should be exposed as somewhere around EI800 to 1000. It sounds nice, doesn't it ?
I tend to agree... In-camera flash is a terrible light source for all but very subtle fill light. I'd rather not have a flash in the camera but have a standard infrared (or radio) trigger built in the camera, so that I can use a separate flash unit ("slave" except this is the only flash in this case) at an arm's length away from the camera. But I can easily see this is a minority opinion for the p&s market. (A lot of good products I like are not best sellers... sad.)

I took some test pictures in bright sunshine with Natura 1600 and I'll post the results as soon as I get them.
