If you need it, it will pop up...under the preset modes (portrait, macro, etc).

The flash pops up by a small button on the back near the top. It does not pop up automatically (at least, mine doesn't). A flashing arrow on the evf or lcd screen tells you when the camera thinks you need flash. When you press the button to pop up the flash, another button next to it then operates to allow you to select several flash modes.

If so, it may be an interesting difference in market models; mine is the C-755 for Japanese market only. How do you get the flash to pop up automatically? (What modes does it happen in?) I want to try and see if it will work on mine, too.



Hmm, I just checked the operating instructions for the C-750 in English, and the Japanese instructions that came with my C-755, and both say you push the button to make the flash pop up. Nothing about it popping up automatically. --FWIW

C750Z
Maybe I got the fluke model?
Or maybe I'm talking about one of my other cameras?
I guess I'll have to dust off the camera and see!

I too, have the same camera. I did know that I had to manually 'pop up' the flash. But, what I don't seem to understand is what tells me that I need to use flash? I guess, I am used to my 35mm film camera that automatically fires the flash when needed. I do see the flash icon in the viewfider or LCD screen of this camera and have presumed that when it is red, that means flash is needed. Is this correct? I have read the large reference manual but don't seem to see this situation addressed. (They write either vaguely or as if one already understands digital photography)!

I had also, posted that I am so new to digital photography that I do not know what is the best resolution to use that will give me good 4x6 photos when printed out. I would prefer not to use the very best settings as those files are much too large and don't leave much room on the camera's Xd memory. I do not believe that I would be able to see that much of a difference, either.

So, any and all help would be appreciated for both of these topics. Thanks and I really enjoy reading and learning from this great site!

Carol
