Yes and no. The camera will use the flash if it thinks it's necessary. Unfortunately, what the camera thinks and what you think may not be the same. Often indoors, you won't be allowed to use flash, or you may get better results without flash, so you'll have to override the camera and turn the flash off. Other times, outdoors you may want to use the flash to fill in the shadows, thus you'll again have to override the camera and force the flash.

Instructions for using the flash are in the manual. If you've misplaced yours, you can download a copy from the manufacturer's web site at http://vivitar.com.

How do you get the flash to work on a vivitar 8018


Make sure you're not in the macro mode. There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB socket. Set this switch to the mountain position.
Also bear in mind that the flash is for still photos only, not for videos.

Vivitar vivicam 8018 doesn't play sound with video's but it used to and now doesn't


If it did play sound, then there was something seriously wrong with the camera. The ViviCam 8018 does not record any sound in video mode. You can add a soundtrack using video-editing software on a computer, but you cannot record one on the camera.

Can't get the flash function to work on the vivicam 8018 camera


There is a switch on the side of the camera that needs to be in down position (scenery) for the camera to flash. Worked for me.
