Canon 870

by ponicpool / May 18, 2009 8:51 PM PDT


Recently I bought a Canon 870, I would like to know whether it is possible to keep flash always turned off. After turning the flash off and when I switch the camera off, after turning the camera on, the flash is again turned on.

I am not sure whether it is possible to change the settings for the above.

Any help is highly helpful.

It appears that if you have the camera in AUTO mode, you can not do what you want.

If you are in MANUAL mode, and you have the flash off and then turn the camera off, the Camera will remember.

See chart on page 238 in the camera User Manual.

Thanks a lot for the reply.

I did not get a camera user manual, is there any soft copy of the same is available?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
