I just bought the Olympus mju 760 to carry around with me and take snapshots wherever I go but I can't seem to get good indoor pictures.

They either look like this (flash off):


or like this (flash on):



When really, I'd like for them to look like this:



Any suggestions on what I may be doing wrong? I just can't seem to get the camera to focus on indoor settings.

Your camera is focusing fine. The blur is caused by moving the camera during the long exposer needed to take the photo in low light. You can try holding the camera more steady But don't expect too much. In those condisions you are going to have to use the flash.

Is there any way of getting the colours to look warmer (like in the 3rd pic) with the flash on? I can't seem to be able to just light the subjects and not all the crap in the background...

Try reducing your ISO to 80, and back up from your subject. You can use your zoom to keep your subject the same size while you are further away, so the background will not be as bright.

The 760 also allows you do increase or reduce the photo exposure. Press the top arrow (the +/- function) and it opens a menu screen with a line from left to right, with minus (-) to the left, and plus (+) to the right. Use your left and right arrows to change the yellow bar toward the (-) to darken the photos you are taking.

Also, the 760 has a very good scene menu. Take the time to try out the different scene options, and go thru the guide menu for general info to improve your photos.

My wife uses the 760, and it takes good shots with little effort if you learn the memu options.

Good luck.
