Default Bought the P90 6-20-2009

I've taken about 300 photos with it so far. I think I got a lemon. I get a greenish cast on all of my photos throwing the colors off. But with a little work in Adobe PSE this is what I get.

You can see the greenish cast I'm talking about here.

Shane,
It does happen on P90 itself.Try and gently press the shutter button doen halfway and the camera starts gaining focus. It doesn't show a sudden change but surely enough change in focus to get noticed after the pic has been taken.

The area of green square is the one that will have the best focus available while the other will be a little blurred. As I said it could not be recognized while taking the pic but does make a difference when view the pics later.

I hope this helps.

I understand that aspect. I meant after you take a picture, I thought it was possible to retain that focus for the next shot so that the camera wouldnt have to refocus to take another shot. Is that possible?

Default The P90 does HDR

Trying out HDR with my P90. The camera only does +-1 in bracket mode.

I just bought this camera and I was really excited to use it. I have read and reread the manual several times. I have been able to take some great outdoor shots of sunsets, flowers, even some good ones of my kids. What I am having a really hard time with is any kind of indoor shot. Now I now that this camera has issues with higher ISO and low light situations.

I took this camera to a child's birthday party last night. It was in a large professional gymnastics gym. It wasn't dark inside and I noticed that other people who were taking pictures with tiny point and shoots were not having to use their flash. I took about 50 pictures and not one turned out. They were all blurry, too dark or had tons of noise. I tried the camera in P, A and S modes as well as trying scenes and manual.

It just seemed that if I did get a shot of a child when they were standing still, it had a ton of noise and was often blurry. I couldn't for the life of me get any kind of action shot. If I got a fast enough shutter speed it was too dark and if I increased the ISO is was too noisy. I know that you can use the continuous sports mode for action shots. Is there a way to get good single action shot?

I am so frustrated. I am ready to just use my old Casio Exslim for indoor use. How can it be that such a cheap camera can take such good indoor shots and the P90 take such terrible ones.

I am by no means anything but an amateur photographer. I know the basics of aperture, ISO, shutter speed. What am I doing wrong?

Any help would be appreciated
