Even with low light, you can capture the spirit of the moment; this was shot on the old T3i with the Tamron 18-270 lens; most of the photos were pushing ISO 1600 or 3200. The on-camera flash worked well enough to capture snapshots of a fast moving group activity. Would an external flash have helped? Possibly - it does throw farther and brighter, but it may have blown out the small group shots. Mostly - it's about keeping the camera locked to your body and stable even for longer exposures.
