I now have a D50. I use external flash by Lumidine and want to use outdoors or indoors. I isolate the D50 with a WIEN HSHS-B voltage intercept. I would set the "Manual" to f/8 and 250 for indoors, connect the Lumedyne PC cord to the WIEN. I cannot find the setting that turns off the "pop up" flash. Same if outdoors for "fill in flash" for under shade or the like..
My Nikon Coolpix 4500 has "turn off" feature. Any other setting the camera 1) extends the shutter (which doesn't work in a bright room)
2) adjusts the aperture. I cannot find a "setting" in the D50 instruction book with the camera. And I like "depth of field" in
my pictures especially with a wide angle lens.
A nice Christmas to all....
