    Am i stupid enough that i forgot or is it focusing improved with new S1
    firmware? If i remember correct, with FW1.0.0.0 picture was frozen when you
    half-pressed shutter until focusing was done, while now picture normally
    shows whie focusing...

    The whole idea of the firmware upgrade was to fix that and one other
    small problem. What I would like to know is which focus "mode" works
    best, the continuous mode or 'single' mode?

    As far as accuracy goes I haven't noticed any difference
    between the two modes. But single mode saves battery
    power, as well as wear and tear on the lens mechanism.

    Rick typed:
    True, accuray is not effected, maybe focusing is a bit faster if continous
    mode is on, since focusing is done even before you half-press shutter. On
    the other hand, you're right about mechanism and batteries.
