K200d flash issue

Howdy all,

Does anyone know what's going on and how to fix it. On my k200d, I set the flash to only go off wireless control (so I get to choose when it goes off). But every time I turn the camera off, it automatically switches that setting back to auto and constantly pops up the flash until I switch the setting back.

It never used to do that. What's going on and how can I fix it?

You need to go into your memory options (in the menu) and set the camera to remember your flash settings.

Yup, I think you can 'make the camera' remember your settings ... there are some handy options there ...
