Question about Nikon Cameras
Certain coolpix cameras can accept an external flash, other models cannot.
If you have the built in flash, and that being your question: you need to activate it via the buttons on the back. Look for one that looks like a lightning bolt- that is your flash button. You will get choices of red eye reduction- three flashes, Aperture priority, flash always and no flash. It will be illuminated on the LCD screen as to the flash status,
If you are referring to an external flash, there should be a hot shoe on top of the camera, or a port for Flash Sync. If you have neither of those your camera is not able accept external flash- however you can use an external flash in "slave mode" if you have a flash that has that featurbe built in. Then it merely becomes a matter of placement to position the eye of the slave flash so it gets illuminated fromt he small flash on the camera.
