a tripod.

ZList of available flash modes in each 
Photography mode
The following table shows the flash modes available for 
each Photography mode.
ZEffective flash range (S : AUTO)
Wide-angle: approx. 60 cm to 3.1 m (2.0 ft. to 10.2 ft.)
Telephoto: approx. 60 cm to 2 m (2.0 ft. to 6.6 ft.)
If you take pictures outside of the effective flash range, the 
image may appear dark even if the flash is used. 
Notes on using flash
• If pressing the shutter button while the flash is charging 
(viewfinder lamp blinking orange), the picture will be 
taken without the flash (when using AUTO or b).
• The flash charging time may increase when the batteries 
are low on charge.
• When taking a picture using the flash, the image may 
disappear and go dark briefly due to flash charging. The 
viewfinder lamp blinks orange during charging.
• The flash fires several times (pre-flashes and the main 
flash). Do not move the camera until the picture is taken.
