    How do you turn off the flash on Rebelxt

    I have a friend who owns this camera and can't figure it out. Since he is over five hundred miles from me I can't read the manual. He says he has and can't figure it out.

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Turn the camera off scene modes or auto mode into P mode and don't popup the flash.

    That will disable flash.

    Tims right

    your friend has to shoot in one of the following modes: P, AV, TV, or M - otherwise the camera controls everything including the flash.

    Auto - will automatically select the best settings and pop up flash when needed.

    P (Program AE or Program Auto Exposure) - This is a basic mode sort of like AUTO, but adds some other things not found in AUTO. One being the ability to turn flash on or off.

    Tv - In this mode you set the shutter speed but the camera sets the aperature automatically.

    Av - In this mode you set the aperature and the camera automatically sets the shutter speed.

    M - Manual -- this is full manual mode. You set everything.

    Anything outsides of AUTO is considered the "creative zone". They can be very useful to get some cool photos:

    Those were both taken in the creative zone where I could set long exposure times.

    I see it on my camera but don't really know what it is. Fully automatic or something?
