Flash shooting
Select the flash mode best suited to the light conditions and the effect you 
want to achieve.
Flash working range
W (max.): Approx. 0.2 m to 3.7 m (0.7 ft. to 12.1 ft.)
T (max.): Approx. 0.6 m to 2.1 m (2.0 ft. to 6.9 ft.)
Auto-flash (No indication)
The flash fires automatically in low light or backlight conditions.
Red-eye reduction flash (
!)
The light from the flash may make the 
subject’s eyes appear red in the picture. 
The red-eye reduction flash mode 
reduces this phenomenon by emitting 
pre-flashes before firing the regular flash. 
Fill-in flash (
#)
The flash fires regardless of the available light. 
This mode is useful for eliminating shadows on 
the subject’s face (such as shadows from tree 
leaves), in a backlight situation, or for 
correcting the color shift produced by artificial 
lighting (especially fluorescent light).
Flash off (
$)
The flash does not fire even in low light conditions. Use this mode in situations where 
flash photography is not desired or is prohibited. You can also use this mode when 
shooting landscapes, sunsets, and other subjects outside the range of the flash.
Note
• After the pre-flashes, it takes about 1 second before the shutter is released. 
Hold the camera firmly, and prevent it from moving.
• Effectiveness may be limited if the subject is not looking directly at the pre-
flashes, or if the shooting subject is too far. Individual physical characteristics 
may also limit effectiveness.
Note
• The fill-in flash may not have the desired effect under excessively bright light.
Note
• Since a slow shutter speed is automatically selected in low light situations when in 
the flash off mode, the use of a tripod is recommended to prevent your pictures from 
being blurred by camera movement.
