Sometimes or just happens. Every camera has a situation that it just happens to work well in. Our old p&s camera is a 2006 Olympus, which my wife still uses. A couple of years ago, we went to the beach. I was using my Sony nex and she was using the Olympus. I took a picture of her with oceocean in the background and lots of white overcast sky. She looked quite dark/sillouetted. Her camera on full auto used its flash for fill and exposed the scene with me in it just perfectly - much like your story.

The thing is, the reason I got myself a serious camera is because most of the time the pictures from the Olympus eye awful. Terrible indoor shots, all grainy and overpowering flash. The Sony trounced it in virtually every other photo.

Nowadays I use a x100 and I try to make sure I use the fill flash in outdoor people pictures. But even the highly revered flash on the x100 doesn't always get it right...
