Using the flash
When the lighting conditions require it.
Fill (Flash On)
Every time you take a picture, regardless of the lighting
conditions. Use when the subject is in shadow or is
“backlit” (when the light is behind the subject). In low
light, hold the camera steady or use a tripod.
Your camera can correct
red-eye using 2
methods. To choose a
red eye setting, see
Eye Reduction, page 26
A preflash fires, shrinking the eye pupil, before the
picture is taken.
A preflash does not fire; the camera corrects red eye.
Press the flash button repeatedly to scroll through flash modes.
