I'll be going on vacation next week and planning to just bring my EOS-M and the 90EX this time around. I'll be using the flash for group pics indoors so it'll probably be dark. Since you can't swerve the 90EX, what's the best method to get a good shot of people without overexposing the flash? Just set it to P and face recognition?

I haven't played around too much with the 90EX but a few times I tried it out the flash was too strong and over exposed.

Flash exposure compensation. I bet if you just fire it like a DSLR pop-up flash, you should be fine. I don't use flash on my M though.

Flash exposure compensation and practice is the best advice. Canon's automatic flash exposure usually does a good job, but it is still worthwhile to learn how to take control of the flash for those times when the shots are trickier.
