Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the flash in Auto mode, part of Nikon D7000 Essential Training.
When you shoot in Auto mode, your camera will automatically determine if…the flash is needed.…When you half press the shutter button to autofocus 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.…There's really nothing more to it than that.…It's very easy to use.…If I don't want to use the Flash, I can try just pushing it back down, but…that's not going to work because the camera is still going to think that it's…necessary and it's going to pop it back up again.…
So rather than sitting there just arguing with the camera, know that there is a…no flash mode, so I am going to close my flash and turn my mode dial over to…here to the flash symbol with a circle and a line around it.…Now I am still at Auto mode, but it won't raise the Flash.…This is great for times when you are shooting somewhere where Flash is…
