Top of the camera, lightning bolt like button. When you press it while the camera is on, it will bring up a menu, there should be an option in there to shut it off.

Flash brightness


You can do a lot with tracing paper. Just making a folded piece to where the light is diffused can make a great deal of difference. Dont let paper touch lens of flash but bow it out, fold it to form a reflector upward. Simple cameras are not good with flashes, but it can be worked around. Experiment with different ideas its not like when you had to spend money on film. Your editing software is helpful as well

Tip

Get more out of S4000


ISO
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting.
NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.

When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)

I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.

When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.

This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.

to avoid harsh shadows moveaway from the bright light,or move object/people close to the backdrop that will reduce the strong shadows.

Can't take a picture without abundant light


Does it work okay in bright sunlight without a flash? If so, try changing the options to factory default.

Cannot stop on board flash from flashing in


In commander mode, the onboard flash must flash. How else would it communicate with your slave flash(es)? Depending on your settings, almost all of the communications can be done before the picture is taken.

Is the onboard flash negatively impacting your photos?

Indoor photos are too dark and skin tones orange-ish


I have the same problem at my church with the indoor lighting on my camera. I'm able to get it work by putting the whole thing on manual and adjusting the lighting settings that way.

I think my flash is too bright?


Make sure that the exposure compensation is at zero. If that does not work, make sure that the flash is on automatic brightness. Check the manual if you do not know how to do either one of these.

Flash makes my pictures too bright/too dark


u might want to try and put a coffee filter over your flash when you take pictures to make the flash less bright. it sounds really silly but it actually works.

Flash to bright


I have this camera. The only way I found to fix this was to tear off a strip of writing paper just a bit bigger than the flasher on the front, and then tape it over the flash. If you use writing paper (i.e. the stuff you use in school), it's thin enough for some light to come through, but stops the annoying problem of making everything too bright. I hope this helps!
