just bought a sony v1 and wondering your views on how good the auto setting is if we are shooting something like fast dancing with lots of movement or would we need to adjust the settings manually?
some important information about Sony v1 : The Cybershot DSC-V1 was introduced
by Sony just before the Photo Marketing Association (PMA 2003) trade
show this year.
Despite its compact proportions the five megapixel, four
times optical zoom DSC-V1 is squarely aimed at the ‘Prosumer’ market and
will have to compete with the likes of the recently announced Nikon Coolpix
5400 (5 mp, 4x zoom) and Canon PowerShot G5 (5 mp, 4x zoom).
features of the V1 are Sony’s first hot-shoe for external flash (they
have introduced complementary the HVL-F32X flash too), support for Memory
Stick Pro (up to 1 GB), ‘Hologram AF’ laser based low-light AF assist,
five-area auto focus, Night Shot and Night Framing, USB 2.0 connectivity
and full control of sharpening, tone and color saturation (at long last).
