Has anyone else experienced that many of the pictures taken with the H1 are slumped to the right? I simply tend to hold the camera leaning to the left when I shoot and then the horizon will lean to the right in the pictures. It´s very annoying! Maybe it´s because it´s harder to get the picures straight when using the big lcd viewfinder. I don´t know... but it wasn´t like this when I used my old camera.

My images actually tend to hang to the left :?

When I shoot sports, that happens in a lot of my images! When I have time to snap, I usually get it right on.

As you gain more photography experience, your skill in holding your camera will increase. But as funkyjojo said, you can correct it ... and while you are at it youmight also correct color problems, too!

Thanks for the replies. The colour in the picture shouldn´t be corrected, the sky actually looked that way I recall. I live in Gothenburg, Sweden and the pic was taken a bright summer evening by the ocean. The humidity in the air makes the sky yellow.

100 years ago some scandinavian artist built their carreer on this scandinavian light, danish P S Kröyer was one of them:

Here´s another pic from the same occation:

And that is one reason why I wish Steve would be able to make "location" a mandatory profile item ... it often helps to know where in the world someone lives! I visited theGothenburg area back in the 60's and have also seen several of Kröyer's and others' works... very nice! Nonetheless, my office monitor makes your shots look way too yellow ... aparantly far more yellow than my long-fading memory of Sweden recalls!

Yes, you could be right there. The picture might be too yellow even if I know (as I was there) that it was a yellow sunset. It´s also that it´s a teleshot straight into the direction where the light is coming from and that makes even the water yellowish. I´m color blind so I often accept the cameras ability to interpret the colors better than myself!

For most of my H1 shots I tend to use the small LCD viewfinder just as I was looking trough a SLR camera. It gives more stability as you can rest the camera on your forehead. Right-hand should be in the shooting position, left hand making a cup to support the lens. The camera rests on your left hand, and gets stability from the right hand and your head. This way you should get a stable straight view and less shaking of the camera as well.
