Focus assist beam works ok?

Postby Paul2 » Tue Apr 21, 2009 1:31 pm

can anyone tell me how well the infrared focus assist beam works in low light on this camera?
is it pretty much like a regular red light on any prosumer dslr, and helps in low light situations - anyone using it found it works well enough?

I'm doing a lot of candid portraits in low light and need to improve my success rate - am currently on Contax 645, no assist beam, and manual focus difficult in such conditions, so am considering a switch if this works.

I received my P30+ kit this afternoon and have been playing with the camera. I find the focus assist beam to be working just like my Nikons and 1Ds MKIII. No problem at all.
