I could use some help/advice from you guys. Here's a snap I took of the Little Monkey this morning with the S95. I'm the first to admit that I'm a lousy photographer, but this image seems really soft/"veiled" to me. It was taken on "Auto" setting with flash off. I've been noticing this softness with a lot of my initial S95 shots. Is this just user stuff that I need to learn/set, or is there some indication here of something wrong with the camera?

Also, on the Cannons I've had, I've noticed that auto settings tend to select shutter speed as reciprocal of focal length (in 35mm equivalent), which may not be fast enough shutter speed to negate camera shake/movement even with IS on S95.

What are the particulars, shutter speed, etc?

Went to one of the few camera stores in the City opened on Saturday to buy some toys. Bonus was the fact that it is right next to the Flatiron Building and Madison Square Park which is always fun.

That softness is lens flare to my eyes

That's what I was thinking due to the rather intense backlighting from the window but I also think Dan is right about the focus point.

Don't know if anyone is going to make it tomorrow but we will be there at 10 and you can PM me for my cell if you intend to show up. Looks like a really nice day for a Zoo visit.

The Monkey will be missed.

We are going to be parking at the Southern Blvd entrance and will be there at 10. Laxx, where does one get the $4 coupons you referenced?

Great Day at the Zoo.

The Ginger Monkeys were ecstatic to see Colin.

But they were shocked when he told them Dinny didn't show up.
