In order to set the flash with this camera, you need to use one of the creative modes which means set your mode dial to one of these modes, P, TV, AV, M, or Automatic Depth of Field. These modes will give you control over the flash. Meaning, you have to set whether you want to use the flash or whether you do not want to use the flash. In all the other modes, the flash is completely automated.
To fully automate the camera without using the flash, you need to choose the No Flash Mode. Here, everything will be fully automatic just as it were in the Auto Mode but the flash will not be used even if there is not enough light. This is great for museums where the flash is not allowed to be used.
Usually, I stick to the Program Mode. I just keep the flash down if I do not want to use it.
To pop the flash when you are in one of the Creative Modes, just use the Flash button right here, press this button, and the flash will pop and it will be used. To turn the flash off, just push it down.
Again, as I mentioned before with the Creative Modes, if the flash is down, it won’t automatically pop. So, if you think you need it or if you want to use the flash, you have to press the Flash button. If you are intending on using the flash with the Creative Modes, keep in mind that the built-in flash is good for about 15 feet. If your subject is farther away than 15 feet and the built-in flash really won’t illuminate that subject very well at all.
Another thing is that the built-in flash can only synchronize to 1/200 of a second shutter speed with the camera. If you need a flash that is brighter or can reach farther than 15 feet or if you need a flash that can synchronize with a faster shutter speed if you are doing portrait photography outdoors and there is a lot of lights, you need to have a shutter speed faster than one 1/200 of a second. You are going to need to invest in an external flash that can do that.
