You're too close for the flash. Either back away from the subjects, shoot without flash, or use a diffuser (try draping a white paper napkin over the flash).

Hi. Hoping you can help with this one ... The built in flash is popping up but the flash light is not working. Thanks, Kylie.


I'm going to say you have set the camera in one of the preset modes for portraiture, macro or something which would automatically pop up the flash. When the camera light sensor reads the light possibly because you have focused on a white dress, shirt or some other bright spot in the scene or subject it doesn't flash due to over exposure. To try this theory try taking a picture in a dimly lit room.
Also you may find better results if you turn the dial to "P" for program and activate the flash manually with the little button. OR be brave and switch the dial to "M" for manual set your aperture at say F8 and your shutter speed at 1/125 pop up the flash and make the shot assuming you are doing a portrait type shot 10 to 12 feet away.

How do i turn off the physical flash but still get a flash on a large light used for taking portraits


You didn't specify a camera make or model, but most digital cameras will only fire a secondary flash in "slave" mode. The camera's built-in flash must flash to activate the secondary flash (your portrait light).

What is the best setting to use in a restaurant or nightclub?


That would depend on several factors. I'll assume that, since you asked this question, you don't want to read a lot of technical stuff about apertures and shutter speeds and so on.

If you want to use the flash, use either the Auto or Night Portrait modes.

If you don't want to use the flash, use either the Auto or Portrait modes and turn off the flash.

Faces show up dark and unrecognizable


How far away are the faces? The flash on a typical point and shoot camera has a very short operating range, typically 3 to 15 feet. If something appears in the picture ahead of the faces, the flash will shut down prematurely and underexpose the faces.

Why won't the flash on my e500 pop up when the correct button is pressed or when I try to take a picture that requires a flash?


When you take pictures in AUTO, Portrait, Macro or Night scene mode, the built-in flash will automatically pop up in low-light or backlit conditions. If you want to control the flash pop-up, set this function to OFF.
1 Menu [AUTO POP UP]
2 Use control dial to select [ON] or [OFF].
3 Press the Ok
button.

If you are in any other mode the flash will not auto pop up.

Flash for portrait


It all depends on the amount of light going through the lens.
If there is plenty of light the flash will not work unless you can manually over-ride it on the camera

Panasonics DMC-TZ15 When on IA mode pictures taking indoors have a shadow along the profile of the item/face


That is because of the flash .... its not a problem it comes naturally as the flash of the camera is located at the left side it creates a shadow on the right side .... try to click a photo keeping the camera in portrait position (i.e Vertical position) that should eliminate the shadow

Flash!!!


Well you probably cannot- the tube or the capacitor have malfunctioned. Try the Vivitar Tech Support team in their website - but I guess it is new camera time unless it has warranty left.

Blurry pictures


It is possible you were shooting in the NIGHT & PORTRAIT Scene mode. In this mode, the camera sets a slow shutter speed for the background exposure and fires the flash for the subject exposure. Since the shutter speed is slow, your subject should be still and the camera should be on a tripod - otherwise blur can result. Since this mode should only be used when the above conditions can be met, you should select PROGRAM AUTO mode for low light situations where you are taking images within six feet of your subject and the flash is required for proper exposure.
