I have had this camera for serveral months now and cant seem to figure out why this is happening. On alot of our pics our kids faces are bleached. I guess that is the best way to describe it. They are really white. I thought it was the flash and we were just too close. Thats not it becuase is happens when the flash is off. It doesnt matter if we are inside or outside.

I desided to go with the F10 since it was supposed to be the best out of the box point and shoot camera available at the time. We have played with various setting including the ISO with no luck.

Can anyone suggest what this may be? Maybe a setting that I need to change?

I have a F11 that is almost identical to yor F10, except for the possibility of manually controlling shutter speed or apeture. I have not experienced your problems with bleached faces. There can be so many possibilities for this phenomena that it would be more helpfull if you posted an example picture including the EXIF data.
Following settings will each reduce the risk of having bleached faces:
1) Use Scene Position: Portrait. This will make skin tones more natural
2) Select the M mode and the Photometry -> multi. This will make sure that persons are well exposed even if the average bacground colour is dark

Just give it a try!
