    Can you verify the model number of your camera? Is this a Nikon film camera, or is it a digital camera? Does this camera use interchangeable lenses?

On FE, shutter mechanism has two traveling curtains. First curtain and 2nd curtain interval is the shutter speed and the tensions of both curtains must be almost same value. Because of the age, the tension changes and at certain speeds specially at higher speeds, the exposure drastically changes and my give no image to the film. Simply shutter needs to be overhauled and readjusted. Repair on these symptom should cost around $100. Any local repair facility should be able to handle this problem for you.

Sounds like you are having some photo taking issues. There is a rule of thumb for shooting, It is the focal length must be equal to or less than the shutter speed. Example. 100 mm lens must have 1/100 of a second or faster when hand holding a camera. If your shots are too blurry or out of focus, try using faster film speed, ie. 400 asa or 800 or 1600, try using a flash if you are going to be at 1/60 a second. The faster the film you use, allows you to have a faster shutter speed. Another option is to use a tripod, and then your shutter speed is irrelevant.

Whenever I take photos in shutter priority mode, all the pictures seem to be UNDEREXPOSED not overexposed like most people say it is. It also says LO where the f-stop number should be. PLEASE HELP!


Your shutter speed is too fast. The correct exposure requires a lens aperture larger than physically possible on the lens. That's what the "LO" is telling you. Slow down the shutter speed until the "LO" goes away. Alternatively, increase the ISO sensitivity (or a combination of both).

Just because you can set the shutter speed to whatever you want doesn't mean you can get a properly exposed photo at that shutter speed. There may be too little light (as in your case) or too much light. You have to use a shutter speed appropriate for the subject and the light conditions.

The shutter speed seems really slow so the picture always comes out fuzzy. How can I change the shutter speed?


You can't change the shutter speed but you can set the ISO to a higher number thereby forcing the shutter to speed up.

My pictures are blurry


It could be several things.
  1. What is the ISO and shutter set on? Low ISO and moderate light will force the shutter to go slower. Any shutter speed less than 60 will be blurry, getting blurrier and blurrier as the number goes down. You could try raising the ISO to get he shutter above 125 and see if that helps.
  2. It could be that the lens is too strong for the shutter speed being used. Generally make sure the shutter speed is at least the same or higher than the largest focal length of the lens. Example: A 70-300 lens should be used with a shutter speed of at least 300, but higher like 500 or 1000 would be better.
  3. Make sure you are holding the camera correctly, with both hands supporting the camera, you elbows tucked close you your body, your left hand supporting the full weight of the cameras, your right hand working the controls. Make sure you are squeezing the shutter button lightly and slowly, no punching ig or stabbing at it. This fast jerky movement can cause blur up to very high shutter speeds if you are not careful.
  4. Make sure the lens is functioning properly, that the m/a switch on the slide of the camera/and or lens is set to A for auto focus.
  5. Make sure the Auto focus sensor is set fo the broadest largest setting or that the focus sensor is set for where you want it not off the the side.

When taking sport(footbal) pictures they are coming out blury


Set your D40 to S(shutter Speed) mode. Adjust the shutter speed to at least 1/250 of a second. Try that. Also, buy the book Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson. He does a great job explaining the meanings behind all the settings.

Indoor picture are dark when using flash---seem like the flash and the camera are not in sync minolta 7d digital camera


If you are in Manual Mode and you set your shutter speed too higher (ie above 250th sec) the shutter blind passes over the sensor when the flash goes off causing a dark section in the photo. Lower the shutter speed to get a better sync. Some camera's default sync speed is 1/60th of a second and sometimes user adjustable.

Remember the longer the shutter speed, the more light will register in the photo. Also boosting the ISO will help extend the flashes range and also record more ambient light for a more pleasing and balanced photo.

Canon Eos Rebel SLR (non-digital) takes blurry grainy indoor pictures, even with flash, even when I put a lot of lights on. I use Fujifilm 400. I have used my 300mm telephoto and my regular short lens,...


Sounds like the shutter is making long exsposure and you are actuallly getting blur- this can even happen with flash if the shutter stay open too  long.  without film, look in viewfinder and see what shutter speed the cmaer awants to use- it may be set incorrectly and is set on manual shutter speed- the shutter speed numners are actually the bottm part of a fraction, so 30 is 1/30th of a second- to prevent blur you want the numbers to be 60 or higher.

I need to change settings for samsung L201


You can reset all settings to the original defaults by following the instructions on page 74 of the manual:
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200810/20081006113527265_L200_English.pdf

Page 41 explains the ISO settings, which seem to be straight forward to me.. The larger the ISO number, the greater sensitivity to light, so the faster shutter speeds you can use (the larger the shutter speed number the faster it is - ie 125 is faster than 60). The drawback of the ISO is that more noise will appear in the images (dark areas look grainy)

To avoid blur, either take your shots on a tripod or ensure that the shutter speed is at least 1/60 of a second

I am unable to get the shutter speed above 1/60 on our D200. It was working fine. Is there some setting in the camera that would limit shutter speed even with flash?


The flash is probably what's limiting your shutter speed. All cameras have a maximum shutter speed that syncronizes with the flash.

The subject is very blury or out of the picture


You are expecting too much for any auto mode. When shooting under low light conditions, the camera may take longer to achieve focus lock. If the subject is moving too, it will take even longer to lock focus. Try using manual focus for the conditions you described.
