Both the Olympus C-5500 (5mp, 5X optical zoom) and the C-7000 (7mp, 5X optical zoom) both have excellent flash ranges, using the camera flash unit, out to 12 feet.

Using a simple and inexpensive slave flash such as the one shown in the attached photo, will extend the flash range out to 25 feet. Slave units such as this cost $35 to $50.
