    Don't worry, choy. I've done my homework before buying the cam. I knew it doesn't have full manual controls even before I lay my hands on it ... My P&S is the Fuji F11, U familiar with it? Pop's P&S is the Panasonic FX9, are u familiar with it also?

    Maybe u know where the manufacturers hid the manual focus function If u do, pls let us know

    Thanks for the advice anyway

    Oh, I see ... Canon G5 is a prosumer camera with full manual controls, F11 & FX9 are simple P&S cameras with limited controls, no manual focusing ... I hope now u know the difference

    Cheers!

    My uncle told me to engineer a dog that doesn't produce any waste at all. I'd probably patent that if I ever got it!

    And Singapore Post is selling the iDog. But I want to create one that is every bit like a real dog we have these days, minus the mess and cleanup.

    The modification really cuts down the DOF. Most of the time, I wish for greater DOF, otherwise it's a challenge trying to get the important parts in focus. In the end, I still try for the eyes, just as it is with animals.

    hmm I dunno if this might work for you, but to reduce vignetting, what you do is you zoom in a little until the vignetting is partially or almost gone, then move the camera back till you get a focus.

    this not only reduces (or even eliminate) vignetting, but reduces barrel distortion as well (i.e. when a flat surface looks curved).

    hope that helps.
