When I’m using my Coolpix, it’s always whether to flash or not flash. While it is a very convenient camera it leaves me with fewer options for insitu photos. The flash ( first photo) usually enhances the colors somewhat while the non flash (second photo) misses some of the subtle tints. The first photo is closer to what I perceived.
