Re: automatic flash problems

Press that flash button to manually get the flash out, there is a small black button that is probably pressed down press it down slowly and it should come back up, be hella careful though- i solved the problem this way on mine but only after some of the memorable moments that i wanted to record had passed, but in my utter stupidity i once pressed that small black button and it completely went down so make sure you dont do this. If u can buy a digital slr. Canon should've fixed this!

Re: automatic flash problems

I have the same problem as Irichard, in that the flash won't pop up automatically, the camera wont work when you pop it up manually all all modes that allow flash photography do not work.

How do i get the flash off

Most cameras, when set to automatic, will pop up the flash, when the lights are to low. As soon as you switch to a manual setting, with Aperture or shutter priority, the flash should stay where you put it. Down and if should not give any light. So check your settings and don't use Automatic or P(program)

I was trying to take pictures in a cave that had some light but not a lot. The flash will pop up and the light bursts, but it will not take a picture. It just keeps focusing in and out and it won't...

It's probably too dark and the flash isn't powerful enough to assist the focus mechanism on far away objects (more than 10-15 feet).

If you will need to switch to manual focus and maybe manual exposure.

The batteries are dead on my N65, but when I pushed the button that pops the flash up, nothing happened. Wondering if that is because of the batteries or if the flash is stuck/broke?

Battery is needed to unlock the catch then the internal flash will pop up. These cameras are programed to automatically pop up in certain modes so there is a little electric switch used not battery no switch. Don't leave the dead battery in the camera or you'll end up with more problems then just replacing the batteries.

What flash will fit the V3800N SLR film camera?

Pretty much any flashgun with a standard hotshoe. The 3800N is extremely basic and does not take advantage of any dedicated flash functions, so you'll find loads of cheap or even free basic manual or auto-exposure flashguns on auction websites and also on FreeCycle.

I'd suggest a basic manual flashgun as you then fully control it. Automatic flashguns try to second guess what it is you're photographing so can often over-expose the subject. You also learn more using a basic manual flash which is probably the only reason to buy a 3800N in the first place.

Generally when a camera refuses to take the photo is because you are operating beyond its expected lighting settings. If you are on automatic, it will just flash a light at you, or give you some indication it is beyond the limits of that setting. Try manual, or some other setting like landscape, or backlight. Generally this will happen on automatic settings. 
Film? Try the f16 rule. In broad daylight, the rule is use f-16 and a shutter speed that matches your film's asa. So 100 ASA film? Shoot the sunset at 100th at f-16. Darker, open it up two or three stops. f-11, 8, or 5.6. 
Bottom line, make sure you are on manual. The problem is likely an automatic exposure.

Can't load the film

Turn the camera on. Open the back. Insert film, pull it across to the red mark. Close the back.

Camera should load automatically.

My pics come out half black when I use the X-370 flash


this happens when the shutter speed is not correct. set the speed to 1/60 sec.
if the X-370 flash is new it may not be compatible with your camera. with the flash turned on it should set the shutter speed automatically to either 1/60sec or 1/125sec. looking in the finder the shutter speed should not change to various amounts of light. if the shutter speed changes with the flash turned on it is not dedicated to your camera.

Shutter speed won't go above 200

I have two possible solutions:

First, are you shooting with the flash up or an external flash connected to it? If so, the camera likely needs to synchronize at 1/200 or slower otherwise it won't be able to take a full photo. As a safety feature to prevent that, many new cameras just restrict the ability to pick a faster shutter speed.

Second, if its not related to the flash, it might be related to the mode you are using. Turn the camera off the automatic modes and put it on an all manual setting. Change the ISO to 400 or so, got outside and aim up at the day's sky, put it on manual mode and then adjust the shutter speed. Open up the aperture on your lens all the way (turn it to the smallest number). Now adjust the shutter speeds. It should be able to go past 200 now.

if your setting is set on auto focus then it will automatically sense any presence of backdrop light, if the sensing device cannot see or seen a dark background then it will work automatically, not all condition will be met under some condition,

try focusing on a brighter image or with good light exposure, this might prevent the flash from flashing but will and should work in dark areas.

see your seting first
