    You need to read the manual and find out how to use the manual settings and take it off auto, so that you can turn the flash off.
    Otherwise, just stick your hand in front of the flash

    Turn the flash off, open some curtains and adjust your shutter speed accordingly..?

    Ok thanks. So If i feel there is enough light i can turn flash off? I just assumed it would automatically turn off it it felt there was enough light.
    I found a setting in S that automatically adjusts shutter speed and I can adjust flash from full, 1/2 to 1/32 it seems to help.

    Press the menu button then look for flash settings
    Alternatively there's the different auto modes and just change it off auto to something more like landscape or even no flash, however shooting with no flash you need to rest the camera on something or it goes blurry lol.

    If you can adjust the Iso there should be no need for a flash!!!
