Are there any cameras with a flash good enough to work at 12-15 feet using an aperturee of f5.6 or f8? If not, what are some near misses?

I am not sure but think that the flashes on Fuji's S6000fd and S9100 have very powerful flashes which might pass your test. The former sells for under $350 after rebate. The latter is between $450 and $500 online. I have the S9100 and have been impressed by its flash.

• Range (ISO Auto): 35.5 " to 22 ' 4 " (0.9-6.8m) (Tele)
• Range (ISO 1000): 2' 11" to 52' (0.9 -16m) (Wide)

The older and cheaper H1

• Range (ISO auto): 0.3 - 6.8 m (w); 0.9 - 5.2 m (t
