The second pic was taken with flash... the skin tones are totally unnatural... Could you let me know how to correct that?

Thanks a lot in advance.. if anyone has any pointers I'd be grateful!!!

Check out page 44 of the manual. Seems to me you'd need to use a diffuser and "Slow sync" flash. A diffuser can easily be made from just about anything colored white. IE - a business card, table napkin, etc. I made one from an empty pill bottle with the top and bottom cut off. This is what it looks like mounted

The pill bottle diffuser mounted on the Oly SP570UZ
