is there something strange going on with this camera Billy?

if you look at the M&M tests. the camera chose (in program auto mode it says) the same exposure for nearly all the tests. you can see that besides ISO 400 and ISO 1600 the camera chose 1/8 at f5.6 for all ISOs, and obviously this led to everything except for the ISO 800 to be improperly exposed. ISO 400 and 1600 chose 1/13 at f5.6, which only 1600 was exposed nearly correct.

if program auto chose these paramaters, then obviously something was wrong this test model.

The reviewer noted in the conclusion that the TS1's lowest shutter speed in Program Auto mode is 1/8 of a second. This is not sufficient for shooting these shots, which caused the underexposed photos.

I think now that you pointed it out, I'm going to have him add a note about this in the Cons. It looks a bit confusing, especially if you didn't read the entire conclusion.

I went ahead and added a note about this issue in the Cons for this camera.

Thanks for pointing this out Dustin!
