Thanks to this site I found the Kyocera m410r. Its amazing how fast this camera takes pictures in the daylight. I purchased this camera for double duty,taking pictures of my kids sports and close ups of products for work.My problem iswhen taking a picture indoors of something about 2' or 3' feet away, the flash causes glare. So I try to usewithout the flash but every time thelcd looks in focus, I clickfor the shutter and its blurry. I have a coolpics 5700 that will take these same pictures as crisp as can be. But I was hoping to sell the 5700 and keep only one camera. Isthere anything Ican do to help this with the m410r?

Mine gives perfectly exposed pics at that close range indoors with flash.

Do you use the macro setting?

Simply use a piece of white plastic (plastic bottle) in front of the flash acting as light diffuser, work great and cost less than one cent .

Sounds like you're hitting the limits of photography...that blurriness you're talking about is caused by slow shutter speed due to lack of light (especially if you zoom in). If you don't know anything about shutter speeds, etc., what you need to do is add more light.

If you're doing a lot of closeups and want a nice wash of light, check out this idea:
