Has anybody tried blocking the output of the pop-up flash (just the lens) with electrical tape or maybe safer, the blue painter's tape?  I haven't, but just curious.  I have found that the output of the pre flash usually overexposes my pictures when taken indoors in the daytime or in a brightly lit area.

Comments welcome
