"D5200 built in flash"

This may seen like a silly question but I can't figure out how to turn off the built in flash on my D5200. I mainly shoot outdoors but have a family 21st party coming up and I read that the best way to take portraits in poor lighting is to turn off the flash and increase the ISO. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi Fiona,

Welcome to Nikonians!
You can turn the Mode dial to Auto (flash off) (between Auto and SCENE on the mode dial) or use P, S, A, or M exposure modes.

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks guys. I rarely use auto must have have had it on when I was shooting at Windsor park a few months ago and the flash kept popping up. I mainly use aperture priority and just assumed the flash would come on if needed so I was looking for an off button. I knew it was a silly question.

Should be able to go in the Menu > Camera set up and scroll down (pushing down arrow) until you see flash Should be able to turn off there

If you set ISO to semi-Automatic where you set a Maximum ISO it should not flash if you set f stops to take advantage of th High ISO.

This was taken with my 3200 inside with no Flash had ISO set to semi-Automatic


This is a cousin - in - law that just moved back from Texas.

Hi Fiona,

There are No silly questions!

When in P,S,A,or M exposure modes, you must press the Flash button to turn the built-in Speedlight On.

Best Regards,
Marty
