Question about Nikon COOLPIX S6 Digital Camera
Whenever i take a picture in any type of lighting but decide not to use the flash my picture is blurred and the shutter speed is slower. it is on my nikon and also my fathers. is there a setting that i can adjust to fix this?
When taking a picture the camera needs a certain amount of light to hit the sensor before it can record a good image. If you are outdoors in the sun and the camera still takes blurred pictures due to a long exposure time then there is a malfunction. In bright lighting situations the camera should decide on its own not to use the flash. For indoor situations the camera has to either supplament the available light with the flash, or increase the duration of exposure to collect more of the existing light. There is no way around it - the sensor needs a certain amount of light to create a quality image. On some cameras you can override the shutter speed setting and force a fast exposure but without proper lighting you will just end up with dark images. You might also be able to override the F setting to the lowest possible value which would let in the most light. However, these cameras are generally very good at deciding how much light they need to take a quality image. If the flash is set to auto and the camera decides to use it then there is simply not enough light to get an exposure with a fast shutter time. This is one of the factors that gets better the more expensive the equipment is. Higher end point and shoot units and SLR units can collect more of the available light with their larger lenses and thus get good exposures in lower light conditions while still maintaining fast shutter speeds. Additionally "image stabilized" cameras help compensate for this situation by electronically assisting the photographer in stabilizing the image - allowing longer exposure times to be shot hand-held. You could also try a tripod if that is appropriate to your needs, that would help you shoot longer exposures in low light without so much image-wide blurring. Of course anything in motion will still blur. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
