After shooting a picture using the pop up flash, is there any way to get the flash to drop back down other than powering the camera off?

thanks for the help.

Just turn off the flash ... :)

But I'd like to have a solution not to turn off the flash modus instead I'd love to know how to drop down the flash again without deactivating the flash A mode.

Daxie's solution is the best/only one...the flash on the S95 is motorized both up and down (vs. pop-up type flashes on others), and when the flash is turned on it is always up. Sort of makes it inconvenient if you want to leave the camera on and stick it in your pocket...but that's prolly not a good idea anyway. Pushing the flash button is fairly quick though...

another way is to rotate the mode dial to one that has the flash off. ie if your shooting in Av with flash but have it turned off in Tv, turn it to Tv, flash will go down.

No, it's not a good idea (based on posts on other forums).

You'll break the popup mechanism.

dont forget to push your lens back into the camera too ;)

for those who push down on the flash:

page 12 of the S95 Manual
"do not forcefully push down or pull up the flash. this may cause the camera to malfunction"

page 26
"wrong flash position, restart camera" error message may occur.

Uhm...because it is designed to be motor operated and not designed to be pushed in with your finger. :rolleyes: It really isn't a big deal to hit the selector for the flash to turn it off.

As opposed to my other pocket camera, the SX210 which is designed to be pressed down. Doh!
