Use the built-in flash for additional lighting when shooting at night or indoors under low light.

  1. Select FLASH SETTING in the shooting menu and, after confirming that ON is selected for Built-In Flash, select FLASH FUNCTION SETTING to display flash options.

    Choosing OFF for Built-In Flash disables the built-in flash.

  2. Highlight items using the selector and rotate the rear command dial to change the highlighted setting.

  3. Press DISP/BACK to put the changes into effect.

The flash will not fire at some settings, for example in panorama mode or when the electronic shutter is used.

Choose shutter speeds slower than 1/2000 when using the flash in exposure mode S (shutter-priority AE) or manual (M).

The flash will not fire if OFF is selected for SOUND & FLASH in the USER SETTING menu.

In TTL mode, the flash may fire several times with each shot. Do not move the camera until shooting is complete.

Optional lens hoods are not recommended for use with the built-in flash as they may cast shadows that cause vignetting.

Red-Eye Removal

Red-eye removal is available when an option other than OFF is selected for FLASH SETTING > RED EYE REMOVAL and AF/MF SETTING > FACE/EYE DETECTION SETTING is ON. Red-eye removal minimizes “red-eye” caused when light from the flash is reflected from the subject’s retinas.

Flash Sync Speed

The flash will synchronize with the shutter at shutter speeds of 1/2000 s or slower.

Optional Flash Units

The camera can be used with optional FUJIFILM shoe-mounted flash units. Do not use third-party flash units that apply over 300 V to the camera hot shoe.


The following options are available with the built-in flash:

Flash control mode

Choose from the options below.

TTL mode. Adjust flash compensation () and choose a flash mode ().
The flash fires at the selected output () regardless of subject brightness or camera settings. Output is expressed in fractions of full power, from 1/1 to 1/64. The desired results may not be achieved at low values if they exceed the limits of the flash control system; take a test shot and check the results.
Choose if the flash is being used to control remote synced flash units, for example as part of a studio flash system.
The flash does not fire.

Flash compensation/output

Adjust flash level. The options available vary with the flash control mode ().

Flash mode (TTL)

Choose a flash mode for TTL flash control. The options available vary with the shooting mode (P, S, A, or M) selected.

The flash fires only as required; flash level is adjusted according to subject brightness. A icon displayed when the shutter button is pressed halfway indicates that the flash will fire when the photo is taken.
The flash fires with every shot if possible; flash level is adjusted according to subject brightness. The flash will not fire if not fully charged when the shutter is released.
Combine the flash with slow shutter speeds when photographing portrait subjects against a backdrop of night scenery. The flash will not fire if not fully charged when the shutter is released.


Choose whether the flash is timed to fire immediately after the shutter opens (1ST CURTAIN) or immediately before it closes (2ND CURTAIN). 1ST CURTAIN is recommended in most circumstances.
