Question about Toshiba PDR-M700 Digital Camera
Just bought the PDR-M700 and now it's back in the box ready to be returned. It's a very attractive camera with many great features and decent image quality. The biggest downfall is poor exposure when using the flash. No matter what I set it for in manual or auto, dim indoor exposure was useless. Use of the flash ignored all manual exposure settings and captured very under exposed pics. The flash even seems weak compared to my Canon A40's. The auto setting was no different. Another problem is the lack of AF assist. I could not get this camera to focus in a 10' x 10' room with a 60 watt bulb. Very dissapointing. The Toshiba website put up a firmware upgrade that would give the PDR-M700 a manual focus feature, but it was difficult to use, especially in poor lighting.

I read in another Toshiba forum where some users were putting a small piece of electriacal (black) tape over the flash sensor, and their indoor photos with flash turned out spectacular, since it allows the camera to apply more light . Actually fools the camera but it works. You might want to experiment with it..
