when i took photo indoor with the subject about 4 ft away and with wall just behind him. pic turn out well exposed and nice .

but when subject shift to a new location whereby the wall behind is very far back , distance from camera to subject remain the same at 4 ft . pic turn out over exposed.

have tried changing to spot metering, using flash exposure lock, lowering to iso 50, using the portrait mode, using macro mode, all dosen't help much.

anyone encounter the same problem?

maybe a firm ware upgrade to correct it ?

Try using the slow-sync flash mode. This should exposue the foreground correctly without trying to brighten the entire distant background as well.
