Default V1: shooting in a dark restaurant

I brought my V1 to a dinner the other day, and when I was trying to take a picture inside a dark restaurant, I couldn't see anything on the LCD because the obejcts are too dark. I used the normal shooting mode.

When I had my DSC-P5 and pressed half-way down, the screen will light up so I know where I'm focusing the frame at. When I used V1, I couldn't see anything so I was shooting in the dark and hoping I didn't cut off anyone because I cannot see anything in the LCD at all. Why does P5 has feature like that but not on the V1?

Hi there, the V1 has night framing mode which allows you to see the LCD in infa red mode, so you can compose the shot, then when you actually take the photo, it will pop the flash up and take a normal photo - give it a try.

Default Try to use the S mode

I also have the same problem..

I use the S mode, set the flash level as high and set the shutter speed to 1000.
At this point, ususally the LCD become bright..
Then I try to set the shutter speed down according how big the area or the distance between me and the object.
If not too big, about room size, 1000 usually okay..

I like this setting, since the picture will be good and I can take the picture without any tripod.

Maybe it is not the right way, since I am also the newbie :-)

Any comments?
