Ok...I am new to the digital camera world. I just bought the Olympus C-5060 Wide Zoom. I seem to be having some problems with my slow flash. Pixs come out blue. Can anyone offer me some suggestions on how to correct this problem.

Re: wide zoom flash problem
I haven't used that particular camera, but it would sound a bit like a problem with the white balance setting. Check your manual about white balance adjustment and try to take a few test shots manually adjusting the white balance to see if this might be the case.

The FL-20, FL-36, FL-40 or FL-50 dedicated external flash can be attached directly to the hot shoe on the camera. To use the FL-20, FL-36, FL-40 or FL-50 flash off-camera, you will need a bracket and appropriate flash cable. Please use the following information as a reference:
FL-BK01 Flash Bracket (item #200666) - used to mount an external flash to the C-5060 Wide Zoom.
FL-CB02 Hot Shoe to TTL Cable (item #200663)- this cable is required for the dedicated FL-20, FL-36, FL-40, or FL-50 flash.
iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-5060 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system, to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-5060 Wide Zoom, the AF target zone automatically moves the to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.
For off camera flash with the C-5060 Wide Zoom, you will need the appropriate flash cable with your flash and aftermarket bracket. Please use the following information as a reference:
FL-CB05 Shoe Mount TTL Flash Cable (item #200707) - this cable mounts to the Hot Shoe on the C-5060 Wide Zoom; and the opposite end attaches to the aftermarket flash bracket's flash shoe or to a standard tripod attachment thread (1/4x20).
