Iam sure I did take the photos in landscape mode. I did have a filter over the lens on the London one though. I only seem to get this in landscape shots. I got similar results with landscapes in some shots I did in N.Y. but the camer seems ok for everything else. You say you do not get that with your 6490 but that is adifferent camera.

In addition to my earlier reply I would also like to mention that I was not using a tripod but I do not think I should need one for this type of shot at this time (midday).

Iknow it`s a different DC,,,but i`ve seen pics with yours,,,and it seems to me at least that it`s not setting to landscape mode,,all fudgeyness aside,,,the image at distance is blurry,,,that indicates it`s not going to infinity on the focus,,,thus i believe it`s defective,,,,even though the compression is high,,,,it still should be mostly clear in the background......

I used to have a 6440 and took it back because I always had problems with detail and resolution. After about 3 other cameras I ended up with DX6490 which I ebjoy very much.

Good luck with your new purchase.

It won't take long to get the hang of PASM, but if you need any advice, all you have to do is ask.

All the best.

Paul.
