Yes, please see the following table: Optional Flash Flash Control Mode Capacity FL-50 TTL Auto (Super FP flash)/ TTL Auto/ Auto/ Manual/ Manual (Super FP flash) The FL-50 flash can be connected with the E-300 camera through flash power grip: FP-1 and flash cable: FL-CB05. FL-40 Auto/ Manual The external flash cannot be used with the built-in flash. * Only Auto and Manual mode can be set in the concurrent use of FL-40 and the built-in flash. (For their specification design, E-300 and FL-40 can not communicate in TTL Auto and R-TTL Auto modes.) FL-36 TTL Auto (Super FP flash)/ TTL Auto/ Auto/ Manual/ Manual (Super FP flash) The external flash can be used with the built-in flash.

After I have detached my external flash (Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622), my Canon EOS 60D does not recognize the fact that the external flash is already detached. Thus, this does not allow the built-in flash to pop out when needed.

I have tried turning the power off and on again. The problem persists.

Canon d60 - Built-in flash will not pop up


There may be something obstructing it from popping open. Inspect the flash area carefully. You could remove the battery and put it back in to see if it corrects the problem. Also, check the flash settings in the menu to make sure that the flash is set to operate. If all of those fail then take the camera in for warranty repair. If the warranty has expired and nothing else works I would suggest getting an external flash for you camera. You will be amazed how much better your photos come out using an external flash. If you go that route then I would suggest going to a camera shop or department to make sure the flash will work for you before purchasing. If you just want a small flash a little better than the built-in, get the SB400. It's only around $125. The SB600 is much better, but will cost almost twice as much (but I think it's worth it).

They work beautifully in auto, but the SB600 will reach much farther and give you less red eye. Good Luck you have a great camera!

My powershot G9 built in flash is not working


There is a switch on the hot shoe to detect the external flash. When you use an external flash, the switch will be pressed down, then the unit will bypass the internal flash and won’t let it fire. If the little switch gets stuck somehow, you won’t get your internal flash on.
Check this switch on the hot shoe (either on the left side or the right side), blow some compressed air then plug/unplug an external flash several times. Hopefully you can get it back

Settings that must be set before... the external flash feature


Yes, set the camera mode dial to P, A/S/M or any shooting mode except the movie mode. Turn on the extension flash unit's power then select the camera's flash mode. The flash mode button on the camera controls the built-in flash as well as the extension flash. Only the built-in flash and the Olympus FL-20/FL-40/FL-50 extension flash can use the red-eye reduction flash mode. All flash units can use the fill flash, flash off, and slow-sync flash modes.
