    Using AV, TV, P, M mode will allow you to turn off the flash.
    Usually when you use AV mode, and set to the biggest aperture(smallest F number) you will have the maximum shutter speed.
    But you have to control the ISO yourself.
    One day you'll see.

    yea, i noticed you can't turn off flash using 'AUTO' on canons

    if i want to cancel flash using 'AUTO' on my D50, i just use brute force and press the damn thing down. works!

    On canon, that causes an error, and the camera must be restarted. I'm pretty sure its bad for your camera too.
