Clive,
I lean toward what David Lyga says also. I have a nice 35RC that is spot on, but most of the time I just shoot away not paying any attention to settings. And that little camera takes wonderful pics in spite of how I use it. I got mine in a box of old camera gear, that cost me $20 bucks a few yrs back. I've had more fun w/ it than some of the bigger cameras. I don't think it knows how to take a bad photo..
