    Hi Yamahaki,

    I only can tell you how it works on my D70s, I assume you selected the tulip symbol. Now you have to push the flash button and turn the wheel at the back right till the no flash symbol apears on the screen. That's it!

    I always shoot in M(anual) mode and use the turnwheels (d70s got two of them) a lot to get the right lightning (3) and apperture (4).



    but I doubt if you get better macro pics without a flash. Every movement will be captured.

    cheers.
