Re: Flash

You can't take off the attached flash. The camera body flash should not fire when you have a flash attached to the hotshoe on the camera. I don't know what kind of flash you are using, since you never said but I use Sunpak and Metz flashes. You can see if your flash is compatible with the N-65. If not, then you should look for one that is. Ritz sells Quantary flash units that have modules for Nikon cameras. They are great flashes for the money.

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)

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.

Does not flash with takumar zoom lens attached (Pentax SF10)

You don't state which Takumar model you have, but your camera is behaving entirely correctly.

The built in flash on the SF10 is automatically disabled when certain lenses are used, this is because the low position and narrow coverage of the flash combined with the size of many lenses causes the light path of the flash to be blocked or the flash coverage will simply be too narrow for some wide angle lenses; this can create vignetting or other dark shadows from the lens to appear in the photo. When a proper SMC-Pentax F lens is used the camera will warn you of this, but third party lenses like the Takumar lack the ability to trigger the warnings.

Built in flash units on all SLR's are just a handy get-you-by feature for parties and snapshots using standard lenses. For all other use, there simply is no substitute for using a proper external flash.

I suggest that you read the manual, if you don't have it then you can download it for free from here.

I trust that my answer has fully resolved your question; if so then please return the favour by rating my answer.

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.

Red-Eye Reduction Lamp Is not Work and I cant adjust my lenses easely my camera is nikon F80 and I Have Nikon Lenses 28-100 & 70-300

I own an F70 with similar lenses. I am not fully familiar with the F80, and therefore can't be sure what I am saying will halp, but I believe it is the next model of similar specs as mine. However, from your description, I think what you are saying is that the little red light that flashes, before the photo is taken and when you have the flash mechanism up, is no longer working, and that your camera is haveing difficulty getting a fix on the focus in automatic focus mode?
This red light is not the 'red eye reduction' flash, but rather a red light (so it doesn't make your subjects blink / squint too early) that helps the camera focus: Auto focus mechanisms need light too. If your light has stopped working, then that would explain why the camera can't focus. This should however only occur in low light conditions.
-Obviously, if it's still under warranty - take it back.
-Get it repaired
- OR if that's going to cost too much or you were thinking of doing so anyway, a dedicated flash unit MAY solve the problem. Most flash units have there own red light to aid autofocus. At any rate, you could take it in to a store and test a flash unit in-store to see whether it helps with the problem. If a dedicated flash unit didn't help (make sure you try it in a dark room - ask them to take it into a back room and try it) then it might suggest another problem such as: the camera is failing to send the signal to the red light to flash rather than the light not working. After all, the red light would be an LED, which have extremely long lifespans.

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

Auto Flash 200x doesnt work ???

try a non dedicated flash unit, if the flash works then the 200X is not compatible to the xg1
if the flash did not fire, there is a circuit problem. there are no new parts for this model.
