I'm a newbie to here and I've some problems with my A80, so hope some of you experienced photographers can help me out a bit.
My A80 takes great landscape outdoor shots, but I find it horrible when taking indoor or group photos.
I have attached a few samples of pictures taken using P mode with AiAF off... pls look at them.
When taking group photos, I can't seem to get everyone into focus. This is very frustrating because only the centre of the photo is focused... the rest of the picture other than the centre is blurred, including the people I want at the edges.
Even when I want to take a picture of my shirt, only the centre is focused. The edges are blurred. See the collar of the shirt... it's not in focus. Why is this so since the collar and shirt centre of the shirt are about the same distance? I thought as long as they're same distance (same depth of focus), it should all be focused?
I noticed A80 like to use F2.8 and perhaps that's why it gives this kind of results. Am I correct?
I'm getting really frustrated with this A80 to the extent I want to change cameras. My old fuji point and shoot digi cam managed to get me much better shots!
Pls help. Thanks!
