Use the [Flash mode] item in the photo shooting menu to choose the effect produced by the flash. The options available vary with the shooting mode.
|This mode is recommended in most situations. In modes P and A, shutter speed will automatically be set to values between 1/200 s (or 1/4000 s with auto FP high-speed sync) and 1/60 s.||b, P, S, A, M|
|J||[Red-eye reduction]||Use for portraits. The red-eye reduction lamp on the camera or flash unit lights before the flash fires, reducing “red-eye”.||b, P, S, A, M|
|As for “fill flash”, except that shutter speed slows automatically to capture background lighting at night or under low light.||P, A|
|K||[Slow sync + red-eye]|
(red-eye reduction with slow sync)
|Use to include background lighting in portraits. Red-eye reduction is combined with slow shutter speeds to capture background lighting at night or under low light.||P, A|
|M||[Rear-curtain sync]||The flash fires just before the shutter closes, creating the effect of a stream of light behind moving light sources.||P, S, A, M|
|s||[Flash off]||The flash does not fire.||b, P, S, A, M|
Studio strobe lighting
Rear-curtain sync cannot be used with studio flash systems, as the correct synchronization cannot be obtained.
