Using the Flash
Use the flash when you take pictures at night, indoors, or outdoors in heavy 
shadows. Flash is effective between 1.6-16.7 ft (0.5-5.1 m) in Wide angle and 
between 2.5-8.5 ft (0.75-2.6 m) in Telephoto.
The flash setting can be changed in any Still mode. The default flash setting is 
restored when you exit the mode or turn off the camera (see 
page 22
).
Turning On the Flash
Press the 
 button repeatedly to scroll 
through the flash options.
The active flash icon is displayed in the 
camera screen status area (
page 8
). 
Auto* (default)—flash fires 
when the lighting conditions 
require it.
Off—flash never fires.
Fill—flash fires every time you 
take a picture, regardless of the 
lighting conditions.
Red-eye*—flash fires once so 
the subject’s eyes become 
accustomed to the flash, then 
fires again when the picture is 
taken. (If the lighting 
conditions require flash but do 
not require Red-eye reduction, 
the flash may fire only once.)
* The flash may fire, even in bright outdoor conditions, if the background is 
brighter than your subject.
