Hey all, this might apply to any P&S, but I haven't noticed this with my old one. If I want to take pictures of just the sky, and I aim at it, the camera usually can't focus properly and shows that red box and says ".1 - infinity" on bottom, which I think is telling me my focus is out of range. Why doesn't it just go to infinity?? This got frustrating when trying to take an image of an orange sunset sky, but with no sun to focus on, so it was essentially looking at just orange in the distance, I had to point at the horizon for it to get focus.
Is this normal? The photos did come out in the end, but forcing it to do "infinity" focus was annoying..this is where manual focus woulda came in handy.
The image in question:
In this case I just ended up pointing it at the mountain top, and that did it, but if there was just sky, without the mountains, say I was zoomed in, it seems it wouldn't know what to focus on.
