Nice to know, thank you. I used the same setup as you explained, but I don't know why, I am just guessing.
I also had problems with center point AF (off-focus pages when there was only a little text), but the camera has other modes, e.g. 3-areas AF
, which covers the page well.White balance
seems to be very important too. My guess is that cameras without "manual wb" and/or "wb fine tuning" are not good for this purpose. Opinions? (Manual WB gives much better result for me than any available preset mode.)
For Image Stabilization
, I read somewhere that IS will do more harm than good if used on tripod or other fixed stand. (It will notice minor movements and overcompensate.) Opinions?
