Hey guys, i'm making a still image of a reporter shooting someone (using camera) in a dark place, and i really want to get that camera spark/flash effect, so far i have tried using point light flashing very quickly and also volumtetric as well, but it doesn't seem to work or look good, does anyone know how to create that "star shape" spark shot from the camera? (no photoshop touch up please) thanks!

I would use lens flare. Add a light at the location of the flash. Check "Lens Flare" for that light. Under "Lens Flare Options" you can create that star shape you want.
