I noticed most people do not mention anything about pictures taken indoors or at night with the flash. I own one of the first cybershot DSC-T1 and am happy with it as long as I take pictures in the day time or there is enough light. The problem is when the pictures are taken indoors or in the dark with flash on, the subjects are too dark!! and need a software to lighten itand then the skin color is redish or warm. I saw another picture taken with a canon (do not know the model) of the same subject and conditionsand the colors are more real, I am only using this to compare. Does anybody experienced this or is my flash no good?

The two biggest problems with the "T" series cameras is that the flash is pretty weak and it's positioned way too close to the lens. The flash range of the T1 is only between 5 and 6 feet and it will not do a very good job of lighting up an entire room. Having the flash so close to the lens causes major red-eye when taking pictures of people and also causes unwanted reflections causing dust to be reflected and captured in pictures looking like bright dots in pictures. You can reduce warm skintones by using the camera in "P" mode and setting the saturation to -.
