Flash Off on Pentax *ist DL

I am able to turn off the flash on the camera using the appropriate setting, but I have one issue. Is it possible to use one of the other settings on the camera, such as macro, and also have the flash off at the same time? It seems to me I have to choose one of the settings and that's it!

Any advice most welcome.

If I remember correctly, if you go into the menu and set the flash so that it is off, (will not open automatically), The onboard flash will not open unless you open it yourself with the flash release button.

You most definitely put me on the right road. There is an Fn menu on the back of the camera. They refer to Flash Mode. One was Manual Discharge. When I selected that instead of Automatic Discharge I was able to use the top setting such as macro without the flash popping up.

Many thanks - very much appreciated
