External fl ash shooting
With this camera, you can use one of the separately sold external fl ash units to achieve 
a fl ash suited to your needs. The external fl ashes communicate with the camera, 
allowing you to control the camera’s fl ash modes with various available fl ash control 
modes, such as TTL-AUTO and Super FP fl ash.
An external fl ash unit specifi ed for use with this camera can be mounted on the camera 
by attaching it to the camera’s hot shoe. You can also attach the fl ash to the fl ash 
bracket on the camera using the bracket cable (optional). Refer to the documentation 
provided with the external fl ash units as well.
