I have a Canon A70 and I get a lot of "orbs" on my pictures whenever the flash is used. The camera is excelent for outdoor photography at daytime but I just can't take pictures when it's dark or when I'm inside a house.

I really like Sonys DSC-P-series and I want to buy the P93, but I don't know if this camera is any better at not capturing "orbs" than the A70. I know that these "orbs" are caused by dust particles in the air that are illuminated by the flash. Now, the flash seems to be placed pretty far away from the lens on the P93 and that must be a good thing in this case, right?

I don't have any idea about those orbs but the distance between the lens and the flash of p93 is causing more shadow behind the objects (when flash is used and especially for closer objects).

That wouldn't be a problem. It's definately better than having a million white spots on every picture.

How dusty is where you take pictures? I wouldn't have thought the spots are dust, but if they are then moving the flash a few cm away from the lens isn't going to fix the problem.

Bizarre, I've never seen that before.

They mean moving the flash to the side by more than a couple of cm though I suspect. Trouble is that then introduces strange shadows in the picture

I think a second flash canlower those strange shadows.
