Re: Using Flash

The Flash is useful up to approximately six feet, after which distance the light is less effective. The Flash is good for close subjects in low light. The Flash is not good to use when taking pictures in large rooms with low light or night / evening scenes. When the Flash is used, the shutter speed is automatically faster to compensate for the light from the flash. This means less natural light through the lens. This can cause dark images in large rooms or evening scenes. In this case, TURN OFF THE FLASH and allow the shutter speed to automatically slow down to adjust for natural light. Your images will be more bright. Be careful, slower shutter also means more potential for blur from motion by you or your subjects.

How do you turn the flash on


Using the Flash
The flash is designed to function automatically when lighting conditions permit the use of flash.
The camera has 3 flash modes: Off, Auto , and Always On. You can take an image using
a desired flash mode to suit your circumstances. The flash's effective range is
35.4” ~ 59.1”(0.9m~1.5m) (in Normal mode).
The flash is disabled if the camera is set to Macro mode.
1. Press the Power button to turn the camera on.
2. Toggle until your desired flash mode appears on the LCD display.
3. Compose your scene and press the SHUTTER button
to capture your image.

Flash button is the one like an arrow pointing downwards. (not a straight arrow) Usually located beside Disp, OK, Menu.

Kodak es c875 flash problem


Try to do this press the flash button then chose the Fill Flash so if you take picture it will always fire the flash., May be your using the Auto Flash.
If your flash will not fire using the Fill Flash setup it means the Flash is defective call tech support toll free 1 800 235 6325 ext 12

You may also see the flash setting if you press the menu button and under menu button look for setup

Nikon D90 rear curtain sync will shoot flash twice


That is most likely the TTL preflash and should not show up in your final exposure.

Try setting the flash control to manual (e2 under the Bracketing/Flash menu). That should give you only the one flash at the end.

External flash interferring with lighting


Its not clear which camera you are using and there may be different solutions to your problem....

All SLR digital cameras and most of the "higher grade" digital cameras have an option whereby you can adjust the intensity of the camera's flash. This can make the world of difference.

Then you also have the option of setting the flash synchronisation to respond to what Canon call "First curtain" or "second curtain". This can make a huge difference. If your camera is set for the flash to fire at first curtain, it fires as the shutter opens; and as it closes on second curtain. Sounds technical, but it is worth checking, as there is a difference.

You should also check what your settings are for the "off camera" flash. Synchronisation is key. It sounds as tho your off camera flash is way out of sync

Red Flash mark while taking photo


It sounds to me like you are not waiting for the camera to charge the flash when turning the camera on or between shots. It seems you are using 1700mAh batteries and most modern digital cameras are better off using 2500mAh batteries. Your camera was released in September 2006 so it is considered "modern". With 1700mAh batteries, your flash (warm-up) recycle time time will be rather long or the amperage may not be enough to fully charge the flash unit. I highly recommend Duracell 2500mAh rechargeable batteries.

With Macro flash unit attached, and using the closest subject distance, images are extremely over-exposed.


The camera fails to control the flash output automatically due to the high intensity of Macro ring flash, causing the image to be over-exposed. Please set the camera as below to prevent a undesired result. Camera and Flash Settings - Set the sensitivity to ISO 100 using the function dial of the camera. - Set the flash metering of the camera to Pre-Flash TTL from the recording-mode menu. MACRO RING FLASH 1200 - Set the camera exposure mode to A or M mode. - Set the aperture to f/6.7. - Attach a ND filter x4 (0.6D) to the camera lens. MACRO TWIN FLASH 2400 - Attach a diffuser to the flash tube units. In case the flash tube and the subject is too close, eg. Not using the arms, set the camera exposure mode to A or M mode and the aperture to f/6.7. A subject at minimum distance may still be overexposed. Use exposure compensation to obtain the best result.

Flash Problem


Using the flash When shooting with the built-in flash, open the flash manually. The flash does not pop-up automatically. The flash will not fire if it is closed. The flash will work when it is opened up. When the flash is open, the (flash on) icon or (automatic) icon will appear on the LCD monitor (or in the viewfinder). Flash on: The flash fires in every shot. Automatic: The flash fires automatically. Press the (flash) button to switch between the and flash modes while the flash is open. In some shooting modes, the flash mode does not switch even if the flash button is pressed. Please refer to Functions Available in Each Shooting Mode in the Camera User Guide provided with your camera for more information. When you are not using the flash, close it manually. When the flash is closed, the flash will not fire and the icon appears on the LCD monitor (or in the viewfinder).
