Question about Kodak DC4800 Digital Camera
My Kodak 4800 is not taking consistently properly exposed photos. Probably 70% of the shots taken indoors are too dark. I've cranked the exposure adjustment as high as it will go (+2) and still get dark shots, often even with the flash. This is my 2nd 4800 camera and I never had this problem with the original one. I am making sure my lithium battery is fully charged....is there an adjustment somewhere else I can make? All suggestions will be much appreciated. Sample photo attached.

This may sound dumb but is the flash going off? The second thought is how far are your subjects from the on camera flash. As you're probably aware, the flash is challenged as the distance doubles; half the light at twice the distance from any point. An equivalent example; f/4.0 @ 1/125th of a second worth of light at ten feet but you'd have only half the light available at twenty feet. So you'd have to change either your f/stop or shutter speed by one stop to either f/2.8 or 1/60th of a second. This is why the distance is so important. I don't see a hot spot on your subject matter so I'm guessing the flash isn't going off. Could be wrong as you're there so you'd know.
