Instead of shutter priority "Tv" mode, try setting to program "P" mode instead. Also, turn off the flash, and set to macro if shooting close-in (press downward on the little flower icon on the back disk). If pictures come out blurry, try using a tripod to hold the camera steady, or set the camera down on an object so it doesn't move while taking the shot. Try using the timer to activate the shutter to allow the camera to remain even steadier for the shot.
There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.
The other reason is focus, or lack thereof. You didn't specify what cameras you have, but if they're Coolpixes, they most likely have a close-up or macro mode that will allow the lens to focus closer. If you're using a DSLR, you will need some other way to focus closer. Macro lenses, extension tubes, and close-up filters are three ways of achieving this.
blurry pictures often comes from the slightest movement when the pictures is snapped. Don;t know if that is your problem or not try a photo tripod and see if that helps or check your trouble shooting area of your amnual. if you don't have the manual go to this site for any type of manual:::: http://tv.manualsonline.com/search.html?q=vr+5940&submit.x=35&submit.y=14
Did you use flash? Did you use tripod? Generally speaking night photos with non-DSLR digital camera, W55 is non-DSLR, will be blurry unless either flash is used or a tripod is used. The issue is the camera shutter is set for a long exposure in order to get enough light that it is impossible to hold the camera steady. The color problem you mentioned is most likely your white balance. Normal white balance is sunlight at night you white balance should be Auto, Incandescent or Neon
There are manual settings for shutter speed and aperture. You may want to us a tripod or a camera stick to steady it. There's also a burst setting, which lets you hold the shutter button, and take shot after shot. It's a good camera- experiment with it.
I suggest you find a tripod and use "No Flash" as the reason the pictures are blurry is usually the camera moved. I love the no flash option, but since the shutter stays open so much longer, a tripod is almost a necessity.
Make sure your subject is within the camera's range. You should be at least 31 inches away to take a picture without the flash, and 31 inches to 8 feet away to take a picture with the flash. You can take a picture as close as 8 inches in macro mode. When you take macro close- ups, make sure you have adequate lighting (with the flash disabled). Using a tripod will help you capture sharp pictures. Make sure you hold the camera steady after you press the shutter button (until the red light starts to flash), and your subject isn't moving. If you are shaking the camera when you lock the focus, a warning icon appears in the right corner of the LCD. If you want to photograph a moving subject, you can change the shutter speed while the camera is connected to your computer. Try increasing the shutter speed. For more information, see Chapter 6. Make sure your flash is not set to flash off. When you focus on a nearby object, your picture's background may appear blurry. Try changing your focus.
Put it on a tripod, and don't move it until the picture is captured. At the very least, hold it steady for several seconds after you press the shutter button. You are probably moving it while the shutter is still open recording the image. Digitals do this in low light situations. I frequently get caught by this because I think 'Click. I'm done. Move on.'
The most common problems that most new users encounter are:
1. Trying to focus closer than @7 ft. when zooming at greater than 6x. The camera won't do it, and that zoom is tempting.
2. Not waiting for the lens to focus before completing the shutter press. Try holding the shutter at half-press until you see the steady green indicator, then gently press fully to take the shot while holding as steady as you can.
3. Expecting too much from OIS. If you're seeing the "jitter" icon a lot, that means that you're into the range of slower shutter speeds that OIS might not be able to compensate for.You might try switching to a higher ISO speed (or turning on more lights)-- yes there will be more noise, but it'll quicken the shutter speed, and a non-blurry pic that's noiser is better than a clean blurry one. . . and you'll learn a little about what you're camera will do under different conditions.
Also, you have to really make the effort to hold the cam steady, even with OIS, especially when using slow shutter speeds.
