I bought a T50 from rankhour.com after reading the various reviews on here and the pc pro website. On every review i have read the camera gets praise, i just wish i had looked in these forums before i bought it.

I have had it too long to send back, just 14 days and the retailer will not accept it because its been used. I am chasing them up with trading standards in the uk but thats another story.

I took the camera to a party over the weekend, the photo quality with flash is very very poor. There are dust halos all over every single photo. They are so bad that the pictures are not worth wasting ink on to print them.

The camera is ok in daylight, but nothing else.

In the past i have used Panasonics and Cannons and both have never had this problem. Why has this camera got a flash at all? its of no use to anyone.

If i cant send it back its going straight on ebay, i can get better pictures from a £7 disposable.

Why have none of the reviews picked this up?

Sorry for the rant btw.

Any one want to buy a nearly new t50 :-)

The only external flash that you can use for the t50 is one that syncs with the internal flash. This will not sort out the dust problem. The t50 will not support an external flash in any other way.

I have used many ultra compact cams and never seen such terrible shots, no external flash was needed. The t50 is a terrible cam with flash, such a shame as it is good in every other way.

The t50 is now sold, i took a loss on the cam but it was by far the very worst camera i have ever owned, back to canon for me i think.

I have a Canon A710 IS and a Sony DSC-H5 and both take very good pictures with the built in flash.

If you take any pictures in that same place with your new camera please post the results.

I can not believe this!!

I have a T50 for 6 months now and it makes perfect pictures using it's flash.

I have several Minolta pocketcameras, none comes close!

As i said above i have sold the camera so i cant try what you suggest.

I would have thought that turning the flash up would make the problem even worse than it allready is.

What a horrible photo. Did you take a loss selling it? This camera has a better flash and all you needed to do was to set the flash to 'high' and to be sure not to go beyond the camera's limitation (10 feet i think). Pushing past the limit just results in bad photos. You should get the H5 or a bigger camera. The price of a small camera is knowing its limits.

What are those halos? It looks like you stuffed your camera in a pocket and let the lens get very dusty/dirty.
