Flash photography using cameras with 
a built-in flash
Vignetting is the darkening of the corners around the 
image that occurs when the light emitted by the flash 
is obstructed by the lens hood 1, or lens barrel 
depending on the focal length or shooting distance.
• To prevent vignetting, do not use the lens hood 1.
• It is not possible to shoot at distances shorter than 
0.6 m (2.0 ft.) using the camera’s built-in flash.
The built-in flash on the D100 and D70 supports focal 
lengths of 20mm or more.
Vignetting occurs at a focal length of 18mm.
Lens care
• Be careful not to soil or damage the CPU contacts 8.
• Clean lens surfaces with a blower brush. To remove dirt 
and smudges, use a soft, clean cotton cloth or lens tissue 
moistened with ethanol (alcohol) or lens cleaner. Wipe in 
a circular motion from the center to the outer edge, taking 
care not to leave traces or touch other parts of the lens.
• Never use thinner or benzene to clean the lens, as this 
could cause damage, result in a fire, or cause health 
problems.
• NC filters are available to protect the front lens element. 
The lens hood 1 also helps to protect the front of the 
lens.
• When storing the lens in its flexible lens pouch, attach 
both the front and rear lens caps. The lens can also be 
stored with the lens hood 1 attached in the reverse 
position.
• When the lens is mounted on a camera, do not pick up or 
hold the camera and lens by the lens hood 1.
• When the lens will not be used for an extended period of 
time, store it in a cool, dry place to prevent mold. Be sure 
to store the lens away from direct sunlight or chemicals 
such as camphor or naphthalene.
• Do not get water on the lens or drop it in water as this will 
cause it to rust and malfunction.
• Reinforced plastic is used for certain parts of the lens. To 
avoid damage, never leave the lens in an excessively hot 
place.
