Hi Joe,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Congratulations on your new D5100.

>insists on popping flash on some images even in full sun...

>with?

In Auto mode, the camera maintains complete control of exposure and when the flash pops up, for some reason the camera thinks fill flash is required. To prevent the built in Speedlight from poping up, set the mode selector to flash off mode. You can also try using Program (P) mode where the built-in Speedlight will only pop up when you turn it on by pressing the flash button on the front side of the camera.

BTW:

We always encourage our members to fill in their real first and last names, and have made that issue a part of our Terms of Use.

The intent is to foster a community of "real people" instead of
mysterious web-personalities with anonymous screen names. Doing this helps to establish and maintain a safe, civil and friendly environment.

Thanks in advance.

Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
