I was wandering if any of you guys have an opinion on the W50 and its flash performance indoors (re: red-eye and general exposure). Is it reasonable? Do photos come out over or underexposed? How often? Any complents or high-iso modes? I would appreciate a sample photo with flash (indoors - hopefully unprocessed/full size with EXIF info intact). I appreciate it.

In regards to the sensor on the dust - I am not sure that all W50 suffer from this. Go to circuitcity.com and read all the happy reviews. Forums tend to attract people that always complain, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks a lot.

Thanks for posting your excellent photos. I justordered this camera for my daughter and she's even more excited about getting it after seeing your postings.

I just purchased a W50 (also have an H1). From what I know and have read, most if not all point and shoot cameras will produce red eye. The flash is so close to the lens that it's hard to avoid. I still get red eye with the H1 even though the flash pops up on top. I don't worry about it though, as I correct it afterward. It's just the nature of the beast.
