These are the settings that I use with my P41 cameras - I make no claims of authenticity as I picked them up from various places over the years.... if anyone has different experiences with different settings, please feel free to share....

If you choose to run the P41/43 in auto/multi mode for a "crisper" image you may run into an issue where every other picture is blurry - a lot of times switching to infinity will help....

Sony P41

EV: OEV (FOR IR Choose +1.0EV)
Focus: Infinity, (For IR Choose MULTI or AUTO - sometimes I still run the cam in Infinity even with the IR - you should test to get the results you prefer)
White Balance: Auto
ISO: Auto (For IR choose: 400)
P. Quality: Standard
REC mode: Normal
Flash Level: +
P. Effect: Off

• Setup Camera
AF Mode: Single
Digital Zoom: Smart
Date/Time: Day & Time
Red Eye Reduction: OFF
AF Illuminator: OFF
Auto Review: OFF

Memory Stick Tool
Format: OK
Create REC Folder: OK
Change REC Folder: 101

Setup 1
Power Save: (Not available)
LCD Backlight: Normal
Beep: OFF
Language: English

Setup 2:
File Number: Reset
USB Connect: Normal
Clock Set: Set Date & Time

Be sure the flash is ON (look for the lightning bolt+ on the LCD screen)
Be sure that you turn your LCD screen off – to help save power
If I have a P41 that I am setting in “dark” areas (heavily wooded with thick vegetation) I will force the ISO to 400 even with the white-flash –
If you do NOT want the cam to flash during the day be sure to set the flash to “auto flash” – you can do so after you have made all of your setting selections by pressing the “up” arrow on the dial pad. If your cam is in auto-flash mode you should NOT see the lightning bolt on the LCD.

Hope this helps
