    Question Powershot G6 People shots allways blurred

    I bought the G6 1 month ago - the Landscape, City, Nightshots of city are GREAT ! close to no noise at all..... but.....
    I could never manage to have clear and sharp photos of people !!!
    I tried all modes, shutter priority with 1/400 sec and flash... everything !
    beside the fact, that the AF system works very poor in low light conditions - even with manual focus i could never make sharp shots of people.
    Am i the only one to have this problem ???
    I saw several G6 photo-galleries and they loocked all a little soft.
    Got also Sony DSC P150 - which produces supersharp shots but little more noisy.

    Damaged Cam or general problem ???

    strange my G6 is spot on with portraits.

    The G6 cant use a shutter speed of 1/400th with the flash BTW, the maximum sync speed is 1/250th.

    ...

    I've read somewhere that changing to fixed central focusing point may help (while shooting portrait)
    Some say that's a problem with 9 piont AiAf.
    I belive it wont make you happy, but may help anyway

    The ones taken on a G6 say "taken using a canon powershot G6" beneth them

    I take most of my photos on P (program) mode which uses single point AF, maybe mikos is on to something with the 9 point AF

    Cool Flash or Night indoor shots

    Ok Alnath - i see. Blind one i am.
    Couldn't find any indoor - low light or flash shots.
    Then we can compare !
    Outdoors at daytime it was allways much sharper

    If i was taking a portrait indoors i would want more then the G6's built in flash.
