cuz IIRC, we have the same camera. My flash works fine...
I just picked up a SB-600 and I don't regret it at all....flash pictures are 1000x better with a real flash. I can't believe how much better it is....
by an external flash and bounce it
sometimes i dont want to bring a external flash (since it's so bulky). And I don't own a p+S.
the colors look more washed out when compared to p+s.
Move back more? Turn down the power on the flash? Underexpose the pic?
Do yours not look like this? Just took it 5 seconds ago, with my popup flash. NO editing except file size:

If it's really that bad just try diffusing it with something unless you're shooting in the dark.
stratfordshire terrier? I'm terrible at identifying dogs.
American Bulldog. Pretty close though! I give credit for anything other than 'pibull' or 'baby eater'....
Check your white balance. My D40 has a WB setting for Flash, that works very nicely.
Also, tone down the exposure a few stops.
If you're shooting raw you will be ok leaving it on auto and correcting it by setting your white point in ACR.
The D80 also has the ability to tone down the flash with an exposure meter, but if you look at the two flashed shots I posted, the ttl settings work fine for me...
sweet... could you tell me what you are diffusing with?
That picture was took with a direct, on camera flash, set to ttl. with 0.0 flash exposure control.
I do have a sb600 that I mainly use off camera, and sometimes use to bounce the ceiling, but I didn't do it for either of these shots.
that looks really good... i thought the shots had diffused light.
