    I needed (a/k/a wanted) a P&S, so, despite my reservations about the slow focus and no manual focus, I got a P5000. My first question is about the focussing - I'm having a hard time doing it. I've taken both casual and set shots, indoors and outdoors, and I have a much-too-high percentage of out of focus shots. For every shot I pre-focussed by holding the shutter halfway down before tripping the shutter. What is the technique I should use to get in-focus shots?

    Second question: I'm planning to use this camera around water - rafting, swimming, etc. I'm looking at the Dicapac - http://coolcameracases.com/product_info.php?cPath=30&products_id=31

    Anybody here ever use one?

    Every nikon P&S I ever had will always take blurry as hell shots.

    Both taken on a P5000.

    DAB - I use the same technique as you, although I wouldn't use it on anything moving too fast. Can you post some examples? Can't help on the waterproof case as I prefer dry land!
