Default Nexus 5 camera problem

Go to nexus 5 camera>settings and change picture mode to 2meg 16:9 and then click a macro or a closeup with forced flash. Tell me what you get.

I get a white over exposed image.

Why does this happen?

macro and a flash.. the flash lighting will over expose the photo from the light being too close. set the exposure to -1 or -2. generally for macro shots, i use a small led keychain flashlight instead of the flash. but -1 or -2 exposure should help.
