Chances are you're using too high a shutter speed. Here's a link to understanding how that works. Good luck!

Shutter speed


Can't be without flash. It is related to the sync speed of your camera, some cameras have 1/200 and few have 1/250.

What settings would I use taking low light action pictures


In general, taking action pictures is all about getting as much light in the camera as possible. In lieu of light, you can increase the camera's sensitivity to the light. This is called your ISO sensitivity and the higher the ISO, the more sensitive to light your camera is, and therefore they allow you to shoot with a faster shutter speed. The faster your shutter speed, the clearer your action pictures will be. In general, try a shutter speed of at least 1/250. Be warned: The higher your ISO, the more grainy your pictures may be, and if you have a consumer-end camera (point-and-shoot, or 4/3rds SLR) any higher than ISO 800 will most likely destroy the quality of your photos. If possible at all, try adding more light.

Hope this helped.

Nixon S8100 fairly new camera, nice pics if the subject doesnt move but horrible pictures if object moves. Very blurry.


If everything in the picture is blurry, you are moving the camera when you press the shutter button. If only the subject is blurry and the background is clear the problem is too slow shutter speed. If this is cause by movement of the camera you must learn to SQUEESE the button while being sure you don't move the camera. It just takes a little practice. If this problem caused by a shutter speed that is too slow, it is remedied by increasing the ISO "film" speed. Even though you have no film, the camera has a "speed" setting that relates to that. The higher ISO value increases the camera's sensitivity to light and thus allows for faster shutter speed. Normally the ISO choices are 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600. Try using 400. The ISO setting is in one of your camera menus. 400 is fast enough to solve your problem in all but very fast movement of either the camera or subject. Using ISO above 400 will cause your pictures to look grainy and not as sharp. Use the highest speed only when absolutely necessary. Slower ISO numbers produce the finest grain and thus the sharpest pictures. It a trade off between ISO and shutter speed because the exposure is a combination of the ISO and shutter speed and lens opening. Each one effects the exposure by half or double.

When i take a picture the top half is good but the bottom half is black


Are you using the flash? if so then the shutter speed is not synchronized with the flash if no flash is being used then the shutter may need replacement.

When I take photos the image is either too dark on top half or blown out on bottom half... is this a shutter problem? Does this regardless of what lens I use...


higher iso settings allow you to use a faster shutter speed. This can be extermely helpful when handholding your camera, especially with the telephoto end of some zoom lenses on small digital cameras. Faster shutter speed will also freeze action better.

automatic white balance can be useful for shooting quickly in changing light conditions; however I rarely select auto as my standard. the auto setting often gives inconsistent results simply because it is an auto function that is making the best of a world that varies in terms of color and light.

Blurry image with movement in the shot


This is common under low-light photography where the shutter needs to remain open longer.

A few tricks to help:
- Use the flash. Enable the fill-flash. This will work if the subject is close enough to the camera.
- Manually set the ISO to a higher number. Use the lowest number that yields good results as higher ISOs tend to also introduce some "noise" or graininess to the images. The higher ISOs will increase the sesitivty to light and compensating with a faster shutter speed. This is usually the easiest way.
- Manually increase the shutter speed. Try speeds starting at 1/250th of a second or faster as needed. Refer to your camera manual.
- Another technique is to pan with the movement. For example: If a person is running, follow them with the camera and carefully squeze the shutter release butten avoiding any camera shake. This can keep them in focus and blur the background instead. This is very cool, but takes some practice to master. The images look amazing and it is worth the effort.

Hope these tips help.

Black area in photograph


Unless you are using high-end Nikon Speedlights with camera and flash set for Auto FP High-Speed Sync, your top flash sync shutter speed on the D80 is 1/200 second. The black band you are seeing at faster shutter speeds is because the second curtain of the shutter begins to close before the first curtain reaches the fully-open position (which is when the flash fires). The higher the shutter speed, the shorter the gap between first and second curtains. To get full exposure with flash, there must be an instant when the shutter is fully open -- first curtain completed travel, second curtain not started yet.

"As the speed increases the final image should get lighter" applies to ISO speed. Higher shutter speeds mean less light reaching the sensor, but that's not the cause of the black bands.

F828 and ISO question


because you are (a) opening the lens aperture to let in the maximum light and (b) making the sensor more sensitive so that it requires less light, so the camera must do what it can to counter your settings - to reduce the light by minimizing the time of the exposure. I presume this is a hypothetical question, as you don't normally want to use ISO this high with the F828 if it can be avoided.
