Forced Flash
The flash goes off with every picture you take. Use this
setting to compensate for backlighting; for example,
when you are facing a light source.
Flash Off
The flash is disabled, even when adequate lighting is
not available. Use this setting for special effects,
where flash photography is prohibited, or for macro
mode close-ups.
Slow synchronized flash
The camera's shutter speed slows to enhance the clarity
of background details. Use this setting when taking
pictures at night, or when taking pictures against an
