Another Day

Self Portrait

I have a problem with this camera.  Focus.

It does not allow me to use the timer and the focus at the same time, adding a level of frustration to self portraiture.  This was not the picture you were supposed to get tonight.

Manual focus does not work well on this camera.  It’s not designed for it.  Auto-focus can, sometimes, but it needs a lot of light, so the photo I wanted tonight wasn’t going to work.

Another problem with the auto-focus is it does it immediately.  So if I set a 10-second delay, it will focus without me in the photo and then take the picture when I get there, which makes for horribly unfocused shots, with which I struggled for two hours tonight.

Fortunately, other things work extremely well on this camera.
