Master MANUAL Mode to take the snap as you desire. Once you master MANUAL, you will find many discrepancies in AUTO mode.

@swordfish, how take that kinda photos? Means the object in focus will be clear only and rest other things will be blurred...

Short answer: You get that effect with a wide aperture (lens opening). The lower the f number, the wider the aperture. For example, the effect will be more pronounced at f/4 than at f/8.

An in-depth explanation will be rather lengthy and I don't have time for that right now. I'll try to post it later along with replies to questions I left unanswered when I suddenly had to stay offline for some time due to my nephew's death.

One trick when using the auto mode is to move a little far from the object then enable macro mode (this makes the camera focus on the closest thing to the lens) and zoom into the object ..this will give you a focused object and blurred background

You can also use the spot focus and center focus options in place of the macro mode...

@all: amazing pics everyone ...please post the mode and the settings (ISO f value and exposure time) too

It is called shallow depth of field (I m not much in to this technicals but knw the word :D) If you open aperture of the lens more then you hace smaller depth of field. smaller aperture meas big F no. (Its confusing !!)
nice trick by izzikio. never tried it.. will try it.. I generelly move my lens closer to object and use manual focus. Its hard for non macro lens.

One more thing for aperture. I read it somewhere on interenet and found it useful when i was new to camera. It said that camera aperture is like the window with doors. if you open the doors fully then more light will enter in the room and room will be bright. if you open window partially then room will be dark.
here window is aperture of lens and room is camera senser.
it is easy to remember.. :)

camera sony W150
ISO 100
Shutter speed 1/80 of sec
f stop f/4.5

This photo has that shallow depth of feild effect ...only the focussed drop is clear anything nearer to the camera or more distant than the drop will be blurred. A high depth of feild will keep these things relatively clear ......

I use this model from Sony : http://www.sony-asia.com/product/bcg-34hld4e

Its a really good charger & being rated 2500mah the AA size batteries last long. I am able to shoot for two days on heavy use which includes flash & long exposure shots most. I got it for Rs.900/- here in Dadar.

I use the same charger as Cool G5 for a Canon S570 IS. I can't say if it's the best, but it does the job.

It's a smart charger in that it senses when the battery is fully charged and then switches to trickle charging. This is important for the NiMH batteries generally used for cameras that use non-proprietary AA cells as overcharging can shorten the life of these batteries. Those cheap Rs.200 chargers do not use smart technology.
