s9000 AF center-focus trouble?
Nov 24, 2005

First of possibly several postings on trouble with our new s9000(s9500 equiv, mentioned for future searchers ;)):

I'm getting poor results with this brand new camera (1.02, SN 53A51401). Especially disappointed as we've owned an s602z and were very happy other than the frequently 'soft' results.

I've been doing a number of tests to discover if it's the equipment or the operator...

Has anyone else had the following trouble?

  • Set the camera to center-weighted focus (what we always use)

  • Aim at an object that's in front of other sharply-defined material (my test: a jumble of bush-branches, with stones several feet behind.)

  • For me, it was almost impossible to get the s9000 to focus on the branches!
