Taking Pictures using the Built-in Flash

Preparation

]/[

]/[

]. (P29)

ª Switching the flash setting

: AUTO

The flash is automatically activated 
according to the recording condition.

: AUTO/Red-eye reduction

The flash is automatically activated 
according to the recording condition.
It reduces the red-eye phenomenon 
(eyes of the subject appear red in 
photo flash) by lighting the flash 
before the actual recording of the 
picture.
Use this when you take pictures of 
people in low lighting conditions.

: Forced ON

The flash is activated every time 
regardless of the recording condition.
Use this when your subject is back-lit 
or under fluorescent light.

: Slow sync./Red-eye reduction

When you take a picture with a dark 
background landscape, it makes the 
shutter speed slow when the flash is 
activated, so that the dark 
background landscape will become 
bright. Simultaneously it reduces the 
red-eye phenomenon.
Use this when taking pictures of 
people in front of a dark background.

: Forced OFF

Even in dark places, the flash is not 
activated.
Use this when taking pictures in 
places where use of the flash is not 
allowed.
