Bought V1 for situations when I did not want to carry my Nikon 300s. Overall I have been very pleased with the performance of the V1.
Just experienced a difficult photo situation with the V1. Traveled to Ireland. Took the V1 to dinner and some pub hopping. I had a lot of difficulty with auto focus in low light situations(pub and dinner setting). V1 would not focus and could not take the photo. The quality of the photos I was able to take was poor.I did change some settings but was not really pleased with the results. Any advice on proper settings for those poor light situations with the V1.
I realize pub/poor light situations are challenging for a camera. My frustration was intensified by members in our group were able to snap photos with simple point and shoot cameras and the photo quality was ok.
What was I doing wrong.
