    Sounds like there is something wrong with your operation. For example, if
    you use the timer, you are probably setting the camera on a tripod. If you
    still get a blurry image, either you did not focus right, or your tripod is
    The AF on many cameras take some get-use-to. You have to learn how to get
    perfectly focused shots. The AF speed on Sony cameras is genreally faster
    than average, according to reports from pro labs.
    lower the sharpening value on the Sony to get smoother images.

    That is a complete and utter fabrication. There is NO WAY any camera can
    take that long to focus.

    From the Imaging Resource review of the P10:

    "With its small size and well-rounded feature set, the Sony DSC-P10 is
    an excellent ultracompact point-and-shoot digicam. Packed in a very
    small package is a 5.0-megapixel CCD, a sharp 3x optical zoom lens,
    seven preset Scene modes, and a host of other creative options. I'd be
    happier with it if its default tone curve was a good bit less contrasty,
    and likewise feel that it gets a little carried away with itself with
    bright greens. Apart from these quibles though, the P10 is a very nice
    compact digicam in the 5 megapixel class. Like the rest of Sony's
    ultracompact Cyber-Shots, it makes a nearly ideal "take anywhere" camera
    for people not willing to sacrifice image quality for camera size.:

    From Steve's Digicams review:

    "The DSC-P10's performance is fairly impressive. Shutter lag, the time
    delay between depressing the shutter and the photo being captured, was
    measured at .2 to .3 seconds when pre-focused."

    There are two possibilities here:

    1. Your camera was defective
    2. You are lying

    Did you miss the word "pre-focused"? I've never owned an autofocus camera
    before the nikon 2100 I bought for ebay use and can't believe anyone thinks
    this kind of autofocus is a good thing!

    I never said it was a good thing. I said that it is impossible that the
    focus takes 5-10 seconds as he claims. Without prefocusing, it should be
    around 1 second.

    With indoor lighting my nikon can take a couple of seconds (if it ever
    focuses correctly) then add shutter lag and I wonder if it's ever going to
    take the shot. I'd MUCH rather have a manual or even scale focus setup.
