I'll clear things up (no harm)

What I mean by white light is that some lights in my home have a certain tint to the light. While a few others are pure white, as in they have no tint. Does that clear things up?

My bed for the most part is flat, which is why I view it as an acceptable surface to take photos on.

Just so everyone realizes something, when this poll expires, I will either go back to work or say Astrotrain, roll on out!

"White light above" = ceiling light? Softer light works better - eg, a desk lamp with some cloth, a piece of paper or frosted plastic over it.

It does look like that model allows you to set the white balance and ISO manually, which added to having the camera steady in the first place should make a decent difference even if there's no manual control over the exposure.
