Yes, please read AAK's paper...

Wow, was in the same boat as you were with the P200 and unable to take decent pictures in an auditorium-like setting! I got the H5 (and now the H-9) and ever since then, been taking much better low-light pictures.

You ARE right about the auto.

May I suggest what a Sony tech told me to do? Take the battery out, then hold the power button for 2 minutes. After the 2 minutes, Let go, put the battery back in, and you will be able to take pictures with higher shutter speeds in auto.

When in a class-room setting like that, after you have set your white balance (auto, or choose on of the appropriate settings), then move towards setting your ISO. Personally, I never use ISO 80 without using flash or lots of light and a tripod. 100 should be in optimum conditions. ISO 200 or 400 for the classroom you were in. Next, set the F-Stop, then your exposure. If the picture comes out a tad dark, you can always lighten it afterwards. If it comes out too light, it's harder to make the adjustments, but can be done.

Practice, practice, practice!!!!!
