Flash Issue

edited June 2013 Posted in » Nikon D3100 Forum
This may be a dumb question, but when I have the flash off and I press the shutter button there is still a flash light type light when focusing. How do I turn that off? I am trying to take pictures of my newborn and all I'm getting are tightly shut eyes because of the flash. What can I do? Thank you in advance!

    I think that will be your AF Assist which is the small light that illuminates to assist your auto focus in low available light. You can disable this via the shooting menu (see page 57 and 134 of the user manual), but your auto focus might struggle to give you a sharp image.
