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.

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.

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.

The flash is to bright i have a really bad picture at night... peoples skin is really white and so is almost everything else


Most cameras have a function where you can decrease or increase the brightness of the flash. I, too, had that problem on the built-in flash on the Nikon D40, so I toned it down to -1 power, which illuminated the subject but didn't wash out. Also, if you're shooting an external flash, try toning the ISO settings on the flash to a lower number or decreasing the power. Also, angling the flash away from the subject slightly helps a great deal.

I can't figure out how to use my SB800 off camera with the D80 in command mode.


You can purchase a simple hot shoe mount slave or a pc corded slave. Do you know what a slave is? Most cameras have a flip flash on the camera. You can use this to fire your off camera flash. Most flip flashes are so low in power as compared to your SB800 that the flip flash will cause very little exposure effect to the image. Now there are things to consider, such as if you are outside in bright light a slave has more trouble detecting a flash. If you are indoors you need to at least have the off camera falsh localised to the flip flash and the slave in direct view of the flash. Some slaves are more sensitive than others. the great thing is with digital you can experiment all you want. Back in the day using film was costly, a lot of bracketing and guessing and time consuming. Why do you want the flash off the camera? What is your subject? I have usually found a bounce card on the flash or off a ceiling or wall effective for people. If you are lighting an indoor scene it is understandable to use off camera lighting.

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.

Silly question as I am sure you have tried but try turning the Flash on permanently in the settings of the camera. Let me know if it 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!
