When Lighting Is Poor: Using the Flash
The following flash modes are available:
Flash fires when lighting is
fires before main flash,
Flash will not fire even
when lighting is poor.
Flash fires whenever picture
Auto flash combined with
slow shutter speeds.
To select the flash mode:
Display Flash menu.
Flash range varies with zoom position. The range at minimum zoom is 0.4 - 3.3m (1'4" - 10'10")
and 0.4 - 3.4 m (1'4" - 11'2") at maximum zoom.
How it works
When to use it
Best choice in most situations.
Use for portraits (works best when sub-
ject is well within range of flash and
looking at pre-flash). When using this
mode, the red-eye reduction function
will also work automatically for the pic-
ture recorded. Not recommended when
quick shutter response is required.
Use to capture natural lighting under
dim light or where use of flash is prohib-
ited. If 2 (camera shake) icon appears,
care should be taken to avoid blurring.
Use to "fill-in" (illuminate) shadows and
Use to capture both subject and back-
ground at night or under dim light.
Highlight desired mode (to exit without
changing mode, wait for a while), and
press I (the center of the multi selec-
tor). Flash mode shown by icon at bot-
tom of monitor.
