The flash on this camera is very simple to use just like almost any other camera. Basically, just pop the flash using the switch here and in the AutoMode, the flash is forced to intelligent auto flash. So depending on your distance from the subject, it’ll automatically power the flash accordingly. However, like most auto flash systems, if there’s enough light, then the camera will choose not to use the flash because it doesn’t realize you want to fill-in shadows for example in someone’s face when you’re outdoors in the sun.
So I usually don’t like using the auto flash for that reason. If I choose to use the program mode which I normally do, I can change the flash from automatic by pressing the flash button right here to the right and then go down to force flash or sometimes I choose synchro-flash if it’s a night portrait. But for now I’m going to force the flash, press set, and what this is going to do is, I’m outdoors and there’s plenty of light, but regardless of the amount of available light the camera will still use the flash and this will help me eliminate the shadows in a person’s face for example.
Keep in mind, this flash is pretty small and therefore not very bright so it’ll probably go for about 10 feet. If your subject is farther away than 10 feet, then you may need to increase the power of the flash and if your subject is closer than 10 feet, because again we are forcing the flash there’s no intelligent auto flash working here, then you may need to decrease the power of the flash.
To do so, press the exposure compensation of the up navigation button right here. Press it three times until you get to the flash exposure value. In here, you can use either the right or left navigation button or the joystick or to move the flash exposure value to more powerful or less powerful, depending on if your subject is close or far from the lens.
Again, add zero, it’s probably only good for about 10 feet. So if you find yourself in a low light environment and you are 20, 30, 40 feet away from your subject, there’s really no sense in using the flash, you’re going to want to increase the ISO to make the camera more sensitive to the available light.
