There is something that I want to confess, I have only used the flash on my camera only once in the three years I have owned it. The reason why, I hate using the flash on any camera. The pictures come out washed out and when used, it looks terrible 99% of the time. There is a solution for that, flash diffuser. It's are used to soften the light so pictures won't come out washed out. The thing is, they don't sell them for point-and-shoot cameras. So, I made one just using a simple sheet of paper.
