I got a Sony W120 today.

I will be taking pics some pics of hardware for a review. Help me get the lighting straight. I have been told by the wise men people here not to use the flash, instead get an even lighting in the room. Right now I'm only using 2 table lamps for this, and I have no other lights in my apartment.

Can't change the camera, no money for that. But can buy some cheap lighting or adjustable flash or some other accessories for W120.

Here are some pics I took, please help me improve this.

I think you did pretty well already.

Btw, flash doesn't mean the lighting will not be even. It is how you control it. Try search on eBay for a cocoon or light tent. It will ensure light will be even whether you use flash or continuous light. Or you can DIY.
