...oppressed by the heat, pacing aimlessly about the house while everyone else peacefully sleeps, you would step on the balcony in search of that elusive bit of freshness, start fiddling with the camera to give yourself a sense of purpose, pray for some breeze and try to enjoy the view:
You would learn two important lessons:
1. 'night scene' setting on Olympus doesn't really work unless you have a tripod--the shutter speed is so slow that even your breath can disturb the camera and produce a blur.
2. 'available light' is comparably better, but shooting images in the dark is obviously not this camera's forte.
Which is quite a lot of wisdom for one muggy night.
