Pop-up flashes aren't uncommon on compact cameras, but few can be tilted back allowing you to bounce the light off ceilings and walls. The WB250F's flash can do just that and can make a big difference in your results. These three shots were taken in Auto mode. Without the flash (top) the camera uses ISO 800. Using the flash and leaving it pointed forward (middle), the camera uses ISO 100, but you end up with a typical crappy point-and-shoot flash photo. (It's better to use this position for backlit subjects.) Pulling the flash back and bouncing off the ceiling (bottom), the camera only goes up to ISO 240 and makes a difference in overall quality.
