I know this is a crazy question but one I am not sure what it means. When I am shooting outside in the sun somtimes I get a flashing lightning bolt in the lower right hand side of the viewfinder. I know the book says that it's to let ,e know when the flash is ready but I do not have a flash on. I did notice that if I turn a certain way or point the camera down it stops.
What does it mean and what should I do when I see it. I looked in the book and can not find anything on it.
Yes I did read that so I guess the next question is I should turn on the flash? If the answer is yes would it do much good when I am shooting a train? Seems to me a flash would not do much good in that situation or an I missing somthing. Remember I am shooting in bright sun middle of the day nothing is in the shade. I understand about fill flash but not on such a large subject.
If your exposure turns out fine, then you don't need the flash. Oftentimes, it will be a case of where the subject is so far away the flash would be useless anyway..... especially the cheesy pop-up one.
I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!
