    I cant understand why when my camera unleashes a supernova of light
    using the built in flash inside an illuminated room it still needs a
    third of a second to take a pic even at high iso. This was with an
    apperture priority about 2 stops up from 2.8.

    When I set the camera to shutter priority of 125 it took the shot
    nicely without blurs. The ap priority resulted in blurrd picturres.

    Read the manual. The answer is in there.

    When you shoot in aperture priority (or shutter, for that matter), the
    camera assumes you only want the flash used for fill-in light. This means
    that it still exposes the shot for ambient light.
    Fill flash adds a bit of light to a shot that is otherwise metered as though
    there was no flash...
    If you want to insist on a fast shutter with flash, you need to use shutter
    priority or manual (if you want to force it to use a smaller aperture, for
    example). Or...completely give in and use Program.

    Custom Function 3.

    Takes less time to say than "Read the manual .........."

    But that doesn't explain anything to someone that doesn't know why they need
    to do it.

    .... At least my way he will go to the right section. Until you know that
    something is a Custom Function, you would not know where to look.
