D7000 flash icon blinking in daylight
Hi there fellow D7k-ers
A bit of a puzzle: I can understand that the flash symbol in the viewfinder will blink when flash is needed; however, when the shutter speed is showing 1/200 (in P mode) and the aperture is open up to f3.5 (ISO 400) and I am pointing to a sun-lit window I can't understand why the camera is 'asking' for more light.
The flash shutter speed is set to 1/60 and the flash sync speed was 1/250 (AUTO FP).
Any help on this subject, which I know is so-oo basic, would be very much appreciated.

Yes, backlighting is so strong that the only way to get a foreground subject properly exposed is by using flash. Of you do not want flash, move to the subject is front illuminated by the strong light source..
Fill flash is as useful in the daytime as in dim light indoors. I keep a SB900 on the shoe most of the time due to the added flexibility of shooting wherever the light source is in relation to the subject.

Many thanks to those of you that responded to my question about the flash indicator blinking, even in bright daylight.
I now fully understand how and why this indicator is flashing and how to use it to my advantage.
Again, many thanks to your all.
