    Default Best technique for shooting the family indoors (compact cam)

    I wonder if someone could help me with this, I am using the HX9V and have difficulty getting a good shot of the kids indoors, obviously the lighting isn't the best, using the flash produces harsh red-eye but I don't mind that because it can be removed in post, but I find the camera takes too long to focus and take the shot, does anyone have this camera who can offer some advice?

    It doesn't have a person mode per se, but a background de-focus and in auto mode (face detection), which I do not like using because it can produce some awful results!

    Any tips?

    Thanks for that, I have been working with cams for years so have some knowledge, I still see massive lags and poor pictures even with pre-focus.

    hi Aircanman

    does it have a Manual setting on it so you can say change the ISO to get more light to the sensor in the low light
