This feature is used to lock flash output, allowing photographs to 
be recomposed without changing the flash level and ensuring 
that flash output is appropriate to the subject even when the 
subject is not positioned in the center of the frame. Flash output 
is adjusted automatically for any changes in ISO sensitivity and 
aperture.
