Help with new 717 please!
Oct 15, 2002

My 717 arrived after 6 yesterday so by the time I charged the battery it was dark. (And this morning it's raining) Shot some pix indoors and posted them at pbase. I reduced them to 1600 pixels. Some are not sharp and I guess out of focus? The one of the jugs seems pretty sharp. The camera seemed to have trouble focusing. On the cat pix it was set to Auto and normal flash. Little red arrow things appeared on the viewfinder. What is THAT? After looking in the manual I saw the flash has settings so I changed it to low but the cat was hiding so I shot the jugs which were further away and too dim but sharper than the cat. I also changed it to auto P mode. Please take a look at the photos and let me know if I am doing something wrong or if it's just not working good in low light.
