There are no menu settings to force the flash to fire. Just raise the flash by pressing the button next to it. The X30 does not raise the flash automatically in low light. The flash is physically controlled by the user.

My X30 has "Forced Flash" in the flash menu, right between "Auto" and "Slow Synchro." For fill-in flash, select Forced Flash and adjust the flash power accordingly.

My X30 has "Forced Flash" in the flash menu, right between "Auto" and "Slow Synchro." For fill-in flash, select Forced Flash and adjust the flash power accordingly.

If the X30 is like the other X cameras, the exposure program will generally perform something similar to fill flash anyway. Given control of the ISO, aperture and shutter, the camera program will use the highest ISO available, the largest aperture and the slowest shutter speed it can to maximise ambient light exposure. It will then add flash at a power level that appears to be maybe -1EV below ambient exposure.

This may cause problems in some circumstances where slow shutter speeds or large apertures are not desirable, in which case you need to set one or both of them manually.
