G1X AF Can't be this bad?
May 6, 2012

I MUST be doing something wrong here? Sitting on my desk was a piece of cake & I wanted to take a close up shot of the cake but the camera set to AUTO moved into the "Macro" setting and never once locked on to a clear shot of the cake? I tried to zoom in & no lock, I retracted the zoom back all the way & no lock. Moved the dial to AV and set the camera to F.4.0 and still the camera kept "hunting" and could not lock onto a sharp image. If I pull WAY back the camera gets a lock. Does this camera have manual focus?

P.S. When the camera does get a lock & I take a picture WOW it looks amazing!
