I've got a Sony F717, and i use the P mode because i dont know what to set the other stuff at for manual. Ignoring the lighting of course, the images always seem to be grainy, but im not sure if thats normal or if there's any way to fix that by learning manual settings. click this link for an example. http://homepage.mac.com/dmora/.Pictures/pix.jpg if u make the image 100% you can see a lot of grain. Even on propperly focused images they're grainy. http://homepage.mac.com/dmora/.Pictures/pix2.jpg Any suggestions?
