Default C4000 EXIF Flash is wrong??

I noticed that all my pictures show EXIF data Flash = 16 and when viewed in the camedia software, the Flash is ON even though that a lot of them were taken with the flash to be off.

My C4000 firmware is v575u-76 and my Camedia software is 4.02. Even Steve's review of C4000 on this site has sample pictures with the flash = 16 and his firmware is actually v575u-77. Viewed in Camedia, his outdoor pictures also show as flash on but I doubt that is true.

Anyone else notice this?

Jui-An,

My firmware is version v575u-77. It seems to produce the following codes in Program mode:

Flash auto (fired): 25
Auto (no fire): 24
Redeye: 89
Forced: 9
Slow1: 1
Flash off: 16

I guess there are a number of other codes for things like "set to slow2 but didn't fire" etc. If you have an idle half hour, you could go through all the possible combinations and make a definitive list.

It looks as if Camedia might be mis-reporting the "flash off" code 16 as something else.

Default C4000 EXIF flash info

Thanks Fenlander... I just wanted to get a second opinion... I guess it's probably the camedia setting and not my camera.
