The Smart Auto modes are REALLY bad, just like all of the recent Powershots.

For best results in an "Auto" mode switch to "P" mode, turn on auto ISO, auto flash, evaluative meter, large file size, fine quality, auto white balance, photo effects off, and IS on continuous. The results will be more consistent and predictable than a Smart Auto mode and more importantly the shutter speed when shooting indoor flash will never drop below 1/60. The 1/60 shutter will get you sharper flash shots than the slower shutter speeds the Smart Auto modes allow.

Thanks, I'll try this!
