USE FLASH EXPOSURE COMPENSATION
Take control of the brightness of your flash for a seamless blend with ambient light
While it may not be possible to adjust flash output manually in the same way as on dedicated flash units, you can ‘turn down’ the presence of flash in your shots using flash exposure compensation. If the flash light overpowers natural or ambient light, use negative compensation to reduce the flash effect, relative to overall exposure. This reduces the harsh lighting associated with internal flash and makes its use for fill flash far more practical.
