How to turn off flash ?

Kindly someone pls let me know how to turn the flash off completely while using manual modes ? I dont see an option to set it off. I dont want to fire it at all.


  • If you are using manual modes the built-in flash should not operate unless you open it. Just close it and it won't flash, even if the exposure meter thinks it should. If you open it, the camera will presume that you want it to operate as a fill flash, and it will fire. It will flash automatically in Auto and some of the scene modes. It will not pop up in Auto no-flash (next to the green Auto position) mode, scene, or sport modes.

    If you are using an optional shoe mounted flash, it may still operate in fill mode unless you turn it off.
