has a built-in flash

The DMC-TZ58 has a built-in flash. Most of the other medium megapixel cameras that were launched more than two years ago also have a built-in flash.

There are a number of alternative digital cameras with a built-in flash currently available that you might want to look at including because of their better review scores, the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the Fujifilm FinePix S4800.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 2x digital zoom cameras currently available including because of their better review scores, the FinePix XP80 (£151.49), or the S9200 (£218.79) both from Fujifilm.
