Flash in Auto mode
When you shoot in Auto mode, your camera will automatically determine if the flash is needed. When you half-press the Shutter button to Auto Focus and meter, if your camera decides that there's not enough light in the scene to get a good handheld shot, that is, if it decides that shutter speed will go too low for stable handheld shooting, then the camera will automatically pop-up the flash and charge it up. I am here in Auto mode. I am going to half-press the Shutter button and there it goes, the flash is popped up because the camera has decided that we need some extra light in our scene.
Now bear in mind, this is not only going to happen in low light situations. Same thing might happen in bright daylight and you'll see more about why that happens when we talk about Fill Flash later in this course. If I push the Flash back down, let's say I decide well I don't really want flash in this shot. I can push it back down but when I press the Shutter button again, it's going to pop back up again. So in Auto mode, if the camera has decided it needs to use the flash, it's going to use the flash and there's nothing you can do about that. However, right next to Auto mode, you can see right here there's a little flash with a line through it.
If I switch to this, I still get all of my normal Auto mode features, but now the flash will stay off. So I am going to half-press the Shutter button and now the flash does not pop-up. So that's a way out of the automatic flash if you're in a place where it's not appropriate, or you don't want flash, otherwise you are not going to have any control over it. And you'll learn more about what you can use the flash for, when we talk about Fill Flash later.
