Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash
I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).
You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light.
If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out.
If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.
So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash.
If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value).
If its still dark, increase the ISO number.
Hope these help.
