Hi, I recently purchased the Canon PowerShot SX530 HS. It's a bit more camera than I have ever had, so it's taking some getting used to. My question is I have been unable to locate where I can turn the flash off. I want to do this for taking photos at shows, etc. Is there a simple, quick way to do this? If so, please explain step by step. Thank you very much! Pat

The key is you have to lift the flash up first to access and change the flash mode then follow the instructions I included. In your case choose the last symbol on the right for "flash off" then press the Func Set button and thats it.

John, thank you again. I finally figured out how to lift the flash, wow do I feel foolish. It appears that to take photos, it needs to be on Auto and the flash still goes off in Auto. Is that correct?

Yes in Auto Flash it will fire the flash if the camera senses it needs to not to be confused with the Auto Program mode for taking pictures...no worries there's a lot to these cameras!

Look at that first picture I sent you can turn the flash off that way and in any shooting mode, auto, program, tv av etc
You set the shooting mode with the dial on top you turn the flash off by raising it and using the arrows to select the off symbol then press the "func set" button
