    Just purchased the WB350F thinking it was basically a point and shoot camera and am very pleased to find out it is a lot more than that. Seems like it can do everything but wash my truck.

    Anyway, I plan to set it to Auto mode for all pictures until I become more familiar with the camera and all available options. My question is should I always have the flash popped up for all indoor pictures regardless of the lighting?

    My last camera was a Kodak Instamatic and that is the extent of my camera/photography experience. Any tips/suggestions for using this type of camera is greatly appreciated.

    Merry Christmas to everyone!!

    Congrats on your new camera. I think you have the right idea - start with Auto mode and gradually experiment with all the other settings. I have one camera with manual controls and I use them infrequently, but it's nice to have them available when the need arises.

    Thanks for the quick response Andy. So, what is your opinion on whether or not I should always have the flash popped up when using the camera indoors, regardless of the lighting?

    The Samsung WB350F has a CMOS sensor, which gives it improved low light ability compared to most relatively inexpensive point and shoot cameras. I own a similar camera, the Canon Elph 330. I generally try to avoid using the flash indoors but I'll use it if my non-flash image is too dark.
