    Default Help: D90 with SB900 Speedflash

    When using my D90, I usually use program mode. So when using external flash, how can I not activate my flash when taking photo using program mode? Now, I always have to turn of my flash to do so. Is there any other ways?

    For D90, there is a no-flash mode. Is it the same as program mode?

    Please help.

    then you attach your flash while don't want to use the flash?

    Not sure if yr D90 have a function button, you can set in the menu to turn off the flash when shooting.
    (meaning press the function button and shoot)

    you configure the function button that can be accessed on the right side of the lens. Configure the function to "Flash Off" and you will be a ble to turn off the flash once in a while when shooting, especially when you see a potentially tricky situation, i.e. subject too near, while background is like 30 metres away. Turn off is abit too drastic as you will waste power charging and discharging the internal capacitor (once you turn off, after a delay, the flash will discharge the capacitor to ensure safety)
