The flash unit is for still photos only. By design it can not be used when shooting video, because it can not stay lit (the flash fires from a stored electrical charge, and needs time to build up another charge).

Why doesn't work the flash on my camera when it is getting dark?


Hi, Bert,
Not quite with you, I'm afraid - do you mean the flash works in daylight, but not at night, or doesn't it work at all ? If it's not at all, at the risk of being obvious, is it turned on and are there batteries for it ? Presumably it is a built-in flash. More info please.

How do you record in dark areas


Turn on the flash. Or the lights. And turn your camera into night mode.

Flash is intermittent or doesn't flash at all. I have tried different settings and flash modes with the same results. Low light pictures that are un-usable.


First of all, be advised that flashes are designed to light people just a few meters away, so that their faces are visible at night or when there's backlighting (very bright/sunny background and dark faces). It will not, for instance, have any effect on a landscape photo taken at night.
Please check if your camera has a manual flash mode. If so, you can set it up so that the flash will fire every time. Check the user's manual for the proper procedure.

Picture in dark condition.


It may be that your subject is too far away. The range of your internal flash is 12 feet if you have the ISO set for Auto, or 23 feet if the ISO is set for to 1000. You may get Normal 0   Normal 0 acceptable results with the ISO set to 1000 without the flash, but you should put the camera on a tripod (the shutter speed could be as low as 1/8 of a second) and use set the zoom for wide angle (the lens lets in almost 8 times the light as it does in maximum telephoto.)

I hope this helps,

Mike

Indoor picture too dark with flash


Hey Jewdeit,
The built in flash on the K100D has guide # of 52 at iso 200 which does fine for close-up photography and as fill flash outdoors, but is not a powerful enough flash for shooting far away subjects indoors. What you probably should do is purchase an external shoe mounted flash such as the AF540FGZ which has a much higher guide number of 148 at iso 100. When shooting with flash if you are using aperture priority or full manual you can also try opening the aperture to let in more light that the flash put out, but doing this might over expose anything in the foreground.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Flash hi, good day. Please help me with my digital camera, when i'm taking a picture at night or in a dark palce, my optio 330gs wouldn't flash, so, the result is black and even in the screen is...


Check the manual throughly- usually there is a more comprehensive manual on the CD- to ensure all the correct setting are made. Other wise this is a flash failure[lamp or capacitor] Take a look at the Pentex technical support site.

Why do some images recorded with flash come out looking a little dark?


Recording a subject that is outside the flash range can cause the subject to appear dark in the resulting image, because not enough of the flash reaches the subject. When this happens, you can use flash assist to correct the brightness of the recorded subject, so it appears as if the flash illumination was sufficient. Note, however, that recording certain types of subjects may not produce the results you expect, even if you use flash assist.
