7Disabling Flash

In places where flash photography is prohibited, use the <7> (Flash Off) mode. This mode is also effective for candlelight scenes when you want to obtain the candlelight effect.

Shooting Tips

If the numeric display in the viewfinder blinks, take care to prevent camera shake.

Under low light when camera shake is prone to occur, the viewfinder’s shutter speed display will blink. Hold the camera steady or use a tripod. When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to reduce blur caused by camera shake.

Taking portraits without flash.

Under low light, the person must not move until the picture is taken. If the person moves during the exposure, he or she might look blurred in the picture.
