Focus

Focus:

"The auto focus does not work well in many cases."
_
"The autofocus seems a little unpredictable, but there is a single press manual focus button on the left side, as well as a focusing ring, and these do me very well indeed."
_
"The auto focus on the otherhand is terrible."
_
"The SuperCCD offers excellent well balanced images and the manual focus ring is extremely responsive."
_
"What made the s9100 a winner for me was the flash hot shoe, excellent EVF, manual zoom, and manual focus (don't worry, it also has autofocus)."
_
"But the manual focus is easy to use."
_

_
"The manual focus is a great idea but was poorly implemented."

"The image quality is great at ISOs up to 400."
_
"The SuperCCD offers excellent well balanced images and the manual focus ring is extremely responsive."
_
"The Image quality is very good for this type of camera."
