Question about Pentax Optio S Digital Camera
I have had this camera for a month now and had no problem on in door and out door pictures. But yesterday when I took it to my daughter's dance performance, I had a lot of problem with the flash. I took some picture of her about 3 to 5 feet away. I can see the flash was on since it is very dark in side. But about half of the picture came out as if the flash is not on. The other half looks like the flash is on. That's when the flash setting is on 'auto' mode. Change it to 'flash on' mode does not make any difference. It look like to me that the flash is on too early or too late about 50% of the time. Is there anyone else has this problem? Is there settings I should try?

Read the photo data (EXIF) and confirm what setting the flash was in. It may have been set to off by mistake. For close indoor shots I usually don't depend on the Auto setting, just manually force the flash on to get proper lighting. If you use the Auto setting take into consideration the white balance and the type of indoor lighting you are using.
