There is no single "best" setting, that's why the camera provides so many. It depends too much on the particular setting, the effect you're going for, and other factors.

If you're seeing undesired movement, that's an indication that the shutter speed is too slow. Using either Manual or Shutter-priority mode, set the shutter speed faster (being careful not to go faster than the maximum sync speed).

I have conon 60D it is brand new that i have often used but pop up flash does not work after using external flash also I do not have flash indicator light on. inside light meter in the build in flash...


The problem is under the hotshoe plate. There are extremely small hols where the sensor for the internal flash are positioned. These sensors tell the camera when an external flash or some other accessory is mounted on the camera and not to open the internal flash. What happens is because the alignment of these hols is so precise and critical any amount of movement or minute partial of dirt can upset or stick these sensors.

What has happened is that when you removed your external flash the sensors did not reset because of dirt or misalignment so show the setting as if the external flash is still mounted and that's why the internal flash won't pop up.

How to fix it, well for a repair person it may be a simple fix by slightly loosening the hotshoe and cleaning the dirt from under it and realignment. It'll work again until it gets dirt in there again or misaligned. This is one area that Canon shouldn't have been so precise.
I'm not suggesting you do this but when I had the same thing happen to one of my field cameras I took a hard plastic coffee cup and lightly started tapping on the edges of the hot shoe. After a few light taps around the shoe I the internal flash popped up. Once I finished my shoot I sent the camera to Canon to have the problem repaired properly. Repair and shipping to a Canon facility cost me $65.00 Canadian.

Sometimes when taking photos the photos are fine and sometimes they are really blurry. Why is this haening?


this may not be the camera but the lighting situation of the photo. or how the camera is held this also happens on film cameras.
if the subject is not well lit or the flash fails to go off or is blocked by a finger then the shutter stays open longer to get enough light to see the image. if the auto focus apature is blocked it will not focus on the subject and will come out out of focus
if the camera moves in the time that the shot is taken it will blur.

if the blufing is from left to right or up and down it means the camer moved during the shot.
if the whole picture is blured all over this looks like being out of focus and not due to movement.

check your IOS speed setting for your camera if it is set low then the camera will needs a lot of light or show shutter speed to capture an image. set it to auto or higher than 100 is best for most situation

if the camera is set to manual an not automatic the camera will only shoot at the set shutter speed and this can cause bluring.


try some test shots on a table or a tripod and take several shots in automatic mode with auto focus on take them one after the other they should all be the same but if one is blurred then there is a problem with the metering of your camera if they are all fine they it is due to camera shake when the picture was taken.


a few tips.

hold the camera to the eye with the elbows against the side of the body.
in dark lit places try to use a tripod or some other support or external light source or flash.
ensure the fingers are away from the auto focus apature the lens and the flash light.

i hope this was helpful

The flashgun doesn't pop up when it should. It remains jammed.


Ok

Its not clear how you are using the camera.
Check the settings on the left. Some settings (Landscape for example will not allow the use of flash)
Set the camera to P,S,A OR M and it will. In Auto it will pop up if it needs it. It It still won't work Look at the menu settings for Flash Mode two settings 1) TTL and the other Manual. I have my D50 set to TTL using the built in flash and manual when using an external flash mounted in the shoe.

Hope this helps

Error


Here is where you can download a copy of the manual from:
Fuji S2 Manual
This is what the manual says about your error:
If FEE in in top display: "CPU Nikkor lens other than G-type
is not set to its minimum aperture. Fix: Set lens to minimum aperture."
If FEE is in viewfinder: "Attached flash is not set at TTL
Auto Flash in “P” mode. Fix: Set the external flash mode to TTL, or set the camera’s exposure mode to “S”, “A” or “M”."
Are you using a flash that attaches to the camera?
If not, then the problem is with the aperture setting. It looks like you would have to set the camera dial to M, for Manual, and use the ring on the lens to set the aperture.
The low battery symbol looks like a battery, all black when charged, half-black as power goes down.
This looks like a nice camera, hope I was able to help.

External flash problems


Sounds like the external flash is being triggered by the pre-flash.

On the D40 set the flash mode to manual. On the F65 set the flash mode to Standard TTL.

Built-In Speedlight (Flash) will not retract


I haven't heard of this problem but compliments of velocityreviews I came up with this. Follow the instructions below to attach an external Speedlight. Refer to your Speedlight manual for detailed instructions regarding Speedlight operation. 1 Make sure that both the camera and the external Speedlight are turned off. 2 Attach the Speedlight to the camera accessory shoe. 3 Turn both the camera and the Speedlight on. 4 Set the external Speedlight zoom head to an angle wider than 28 mm. If you are using a Speedlight with Auto Power Zoom, set the zoom head angle manually. The COOLPIX5700 does not support power zoom. 5 Set the external Speedlight flash mode to TTL. At this setting, the amount of light produced by the external Speedlight is measured by the camera?s photocell, and the flash shooting range adjusted automatically to ensure optimal exposure. D-TTL flash control (available with the SB-80DX, SB-50DX and SB-28DX) is not supported. 6 Take the picture If the Speedlight Options: Speedlight Control option in the SET-UP menu is set to Auto, only the external Speedlight will fire. If this option is set to Int & Ext Active then the external Speedlight and the builtin Speedlight will fire at the same time. The COOLPIX5700 does not support AF-assist illumination, or red-eye reduction using the red-eye reduction lamp on the external Speedlight. At a setting of STBY (standby), the Speedlight will turn on automatically whenever the camera turns on but will not turn off automatically when the camera turns off. Exact functionality varies with the Speedlight in use. Refer to your Speedlight manual for details. I hope it's of some help BMW

Can the internal flash be disabled when using externally attached flashes?


t is my understanding that you must use manual exposure (shutter and aperture) with an external flash. This shouldn't be a problem (set the camera to the settings on the guide chart that comes with your flash, and let the flash worry about the strength/flash duration necessary - provided it is an "auto" flash with a sensor)... I'm going to use a Vivitar 273 with my Epson 3000z... There are a few other threads on this forum regarding External Flash use.
