I have a basic Olympus digital camera, which I just love. I've read Steve's review on this camera (the FE-115) and concur with its weaknesses. I'm on a fixed budget so I can't upgrade, but there are some things I'm having problems with that I'd like to try to resolve with this camera if possible.

For example, when I try to photograph a friend who's skin is black the autofocus/exposure light blinks continually indicating one or the other isn't taking. I rarely can use the trick of focussing on an object the same distance away, because she'sstanding isolated from other objects. Any ideas about this?

Another one is shooting in low light situations. I find if the room is dimly lit, as soon as I look at the LCD everything's gone! It doesn't recognize what light there is, so I have a lot of trouble seeing my subject. And of course the autofocus/exposure don't work at low light levels either.

Lastly, is there any way of speeding up the lag in pressing the shutter and capturing the subject? Anyone know any tricks for this one?

I'd be grateful for any informed input on these issues. I'm very fond of my little camera - it produces incredible closeups and my images have a very high resolution which makes for a terrific print, and even better screenshot. I know I could do better if I bought a high-end camera, but I can't afford one.

Hi Benzmum,

I don't know if this is any help to you. It's an exposure guide for the FE-110 which is probably similar if not the same as your FE-115:

Thanks, Kirlian. In fact the 115 advanced manual has virtually the same information in it. I will be experimenting with the manual exposure settings to see if it makes a difference on a dark subject or in low light.
