Regardless of the AE setting of camera, you can manually configure light intensity of the internal flash from [FULL] to [1/64] in 1/2 EV increments. Which will allow you to fix light intensity, not being affected by reflectance of the subject nor background.
Since this mode will not do a pre-flash, it will reduce time lag. It will be useful for taking a picture of flying insects.
The following are the flash amount that can be set, a value is of the maximum amount.
[FULL], [1/1.4], [1/2], [1/2.8], [1/4], [1/5.6],
[1/8], [1/11], [1/16], [1/22], [1/32], [1/64]
