Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question. If the subject is too close to the camera, flash at all will overexpose, without anything being wrong with the camera.Also, do you use the built-in flash? you may be overexposure-forcing, if your Exposure Compensation setting is dialed up.And, don't use Auto-ISO with flash, it tends to have problems, which could include overexposure.
