❍ A pre-flash is fired to obtain the subject's exposure data to adjust the main

- During auto exposure bracketing (the flash mark appears in purple).
- When a shutter speed of 1/2000 is set in CAMERA mode (the flash mark
appears in purple). However, if [FLASH ON ] is selected, the shutter speed
becomes set to 1/1000 and the flash fires.
- When an abnormality occurs during charging (the flash mark flashes in red).
- When the multi-image screen is selected, when you are recording movies
onto a tape or when [STILL I. REC] is set to [OFF] (no flash mark appears).
❍ We recommend not using the flash when the wide attachment (supplied with
the ELURA70), the optional Wide-converter or Tele-converter is attached. Their
shadows appear on the screen.
❍ The flash mode cannot be selected when exposure is locked, or after the first
still image in Stitch Assist mode.
❍ The red-eye reduction mode cannot be used in stitch assist mode.

the PHOTO button is pressed halfway and turns off after a short time.
