N Using the Flash (Intelligent Flash)
When the ash is used, the camera’s Intelligent Flash system instantly analyzes the scene based on
such factors as the brightness of the subject, its position in the frame, and its distance from the camera.
Flash output and sensitivity are adjusted to ensure that the main subject is correctly exposed while
preserving the e ects of ambient background lighting, even in dimly-lit indoor scenes. Use the ash
when lighting is poor, for example when shooting at night or indoors under low light.
Raise the l ash.
Press the ash pop-up button to raise the ash.
