Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Focus

Focus:
"The results were mixed, because the camera's autofocus system was confused by the complex scene, and the depth of focus is shallow."
_
"One BIG problem though - it consistently takes pictures of horrible quality - blurry, out of focus, bad colors, terrible in low light."
_
"Still learning how to use it...a little disappointed with background in focus with subject out of focus (probably user error)...overall I am satisfied with the value and portability of my purchase of the Point-n-shoot camera"
_
"In technical terms, it has only one aperture setting, and it's pretty wide, which means the depth of the image that is in focus is somewhat shallow."
_
"The camera captures only in JPG (as far as I can figure) so the images need to be in focus for the picture to be its best."
_
".. .of course the next model went back to a Carl Zeiss because they realized what a mistake they madeThe photos look fine in your viewer on the camera - but as soon as you put them on your computer you'll see just how amazingly out of focus the photos are..."
_
"I tried every setting and i might get 1 out of every 10 photos in focus... and again, it looks good on the camera, but when i import them.. i end up trashing them all and it's very disappointing."
