Question about Olympus Camedia D-520 Zoom Digital Camera
I have a simple point and shoot Olympus 520 D Since I acquired the camera I have not been able to come up with "rules " for flash use even though I have read a number of online and print articles. One of main problems is taking small group posing with one person wearing dark clothing and others much lighter. Does any one have suggestions or link to step by step suggestions for flash setting for the 520

I assume your camera is the Olympus D520. This camera gives you very little control of the flash. The only thing available to you is the ability to change the Exposure compensation. I would experiment with raising the exposure compensation adjustment a few steps. This may or may not help. What you describe is quite common. The flash distance on small cameras is usually only about 10 to 12 feet and past that distance, it quickly falls into blackness. Some cameras have Slow Synchronizing which lets the lens stay open a bit longer past the flash. This adds light to the background. You might check the manual and see if your camera has that feature.
