See there are a lot of ways to attack the problem. Try them all and then you can decide which or all of them to use!! LOL

As I read you allready got many good advices here. I just want totell my own expierencewith this problem. The built-in flash reaches only for some 4 meters and futher the light fades. So shooting indoors you'll get normally exposed pictures only in this range. But if the object is more far away? Sadly the camera is not sowise tojudge this (although I thought why it couldn't judge it from autofocus information?). So you have a few posibilities to react- go to PASM modes and:

1. Use Exposure compensation (in PAS modes) to getlonger shutter time, but be aware of hand shake,

2. Switch to higher ISO sensitivity (in Auto it strangely does not exceed 120), like ISO 200, or even 400 in very dark room. You can use ISO 200 together with Exposure compensation.

3. Go to Manual mode and adjust the aperture, shutter, and ISO (best at 200) to get the exposure meter near to 0. At this time you can experiment to compare 2 shots- one with and one without the Flash.

Good luck!
