Does the camera have a full manual setting?

Digital cameras seem to blow out the highlights very easily.

Someone suggested setting it to "under-expose" a bit if you are shooting
auto, which is probably a good idea. If it doesn't have a histogram you can
access, then shoot some sample shots and examine the histograms in Photoshop and
then you can calibrate the camera yourself.
