Hi Doc, flashes tend do do that, at least on little point-n-shoots like ours. If you are too close to the subject(s), they can get really overexposed. I've found the C875 is better in this regard than my old Canon Powershot A620, most likely because the Canon's flash was stronger.

I don't think you are doing anything wrong, nor do I think your camera is defective. If the room isn't too dark, you could try to turn off the flash and boost the ISO, though after 200 the image starts to degrade more noticeably. 400 isn't bad if you are not a "pixel peeper".

Attached is a pic from Christmas at my Mom's house. ISO 200, Shutter 1/100, Flash ON. I was sitting about 10 feet away.

Thanks so much for the input.

What do you think are the best settings for indoor photos?
