I have owned an s7000 for about 2 years, and its worked very well. I started experimenting with light painting at night, adn wanted to lock in the subject with a quick flash after I let the shutter go.

I am using an air shutter bulb to trigger a 5 second exposure.

Is it possible to have the flash fire just BEFORE the shutter CLOSES, instead of flashing right at the beginning?

The only way I can think of to do that with your camera would be to simply hold the flash in your head and fire it with the button on the flash unit. You would just have to count down and fire it as close as you can before the shutter closes.

Some of the digital SLR cameras have controllable flash modes. But I don't believe your camera or any of the current "prosumer" Fuji cameras have that capability.

and is there a BUTTON on the s7000 flash itself to fire it manually?

Sorry, I was assuming you were using an external flash. I have made it a comment in a thread about which I know nothing. Anything I have read in the past about painting with light was talking about using an external flash with the camera. Please disregard my suggestions.
