It's not a focus issue, it's a new camera and I'm not used to using an LCD screen instead of a viewfinder and I'm a bit shaky yet with the hands. I just have to get used to it (Either that or use a mono or tripod!)

Tom, did you do a century up there? You mentioned riding 125 miles Saturday.

That jersey is hanging off you, Skinny. Time to go Spring shopping

It was 42 Friday afternoon and 83 miles on Saturday for us. I did a bit more later as well, but Earlena was POOPED!

Ah, I see, it's a digital point and shoot, they tend to have two problems, first of all the lack of a viewfinder means you need to hold the camera at arms length, which is about the most unstable position possible. On top of this, most digital P&S cameras have very narrow EV ranges, which means that many times, the camera will pick a shutter speed that even a professional shooter would not dream of using without using Image Stabilization a Tripod or flash.

There are some nice Monopods around, I have a little Optex that lives in my one camera bag, it's about 45cm (18") long when folded up, and extends out to about 180cm (6') at it's longest. Has a strap at the top for holding, and can double as a walking stick when hiking. This works with all of my cameras, the two old SLR film cameras, which combined are older then I am, and I am not that young anymore, and my DSLR which I bought used this past January. One of my plans for this summer, when I can get my distance up a little higher, is to lash the one camera bag to the bike rack, and go shooting. I'm an old nature photographer, but plan on doing more cityscapes then landscapes this year, cityscapes are easier to access. One option is to bike down to the ferrydocks, take the ferry to the Toronto islands, then tool around on the islands on the bike, before taking the ferry back to the city and biking home, should be about 60 km total. Accessing countryside means needing to cross a major highway where the only accesses are heavy and high speed traffic roads, and you need to ride about 70km before you even see the country anymore, thanks to $#@!^*& urban sprawl.
