Nikon D60x Blurry night pictures

I've been taking pictures at night track meets. Whenever the lights in the stadium turn on, the rapid-shot pictures I take in sports mode become very blurry. When I changed to auto mode w/flash, the pictures are a little less blurry, but still not very good. Any suggestions?

Try switching to Shutter Prority (S) with a fast shutter speed.If the light is not so good, up the iso to 800 to gain that faster shutter speed..

You do not say the lens in use ? if VR, make sure its switched on or use a tripod.

Hope this helps

Does not take pictures at night


Try changing the camera to automatic, or when it has scene settings, put it on night shot when light becomes worse.

How do i take action shots?


The DSC-HX300 has 16 shooting modes, Anti-motion Blur, Back Light
Beach,,Fireworks, Food, Handheld Twilight, High Sensitivity, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Scene, Pet Portrait, Smooth Skin, Snow, Soft Focus, Sports.
>Use the Sports mode for action. Use the 'burst' option and you'll get several images and be able to select the best moment.
Wider angles (rather than extreme telephoto) allows for less blur if the camera is handheld (even teh improved Steady shot feature can only do just so much.) You may have better results optimizing for either ISO or shutter speed, but that will be lighting and speed-of-action dependant. You'll probably need to experiment a bit.

I try to take a picture and it comes out red. Why?


If a Camera is taking pictures in reddish color, most probability the night shot feature is enabled.
The Night shot also known as Dark Shot, Moon light mode in several models.
If you confirm that the Camera is not set to night shot mode, please reset the Camera by checking the manual of the Camera and check the operation. If the issue persists, service may be required. Please let me know the model # and make of the Camera so that I can provide specific instructions to reset the Camera.

If you wish to get the unit repaired, you can click hear to locate your nearest service facility.

Thanks for understanding.

Hello, my Canon 1000d wont take the picture at night just flash a bunch of times. It also says busy on the screen. what does this mean and how do you stop it from doing this?


This sounds like a flash configuration issue combined with the continuous shooting mode, which will take 3 pictures in rapid succession and display "busy" while the flash is recycling. For starters, switch it back to single shot mode. That's the button that looks like the stack of pages and the timer clock. Then turn off the flash. That's the icon with the flash lightning image with the bar through it.
You will probably need to adjust your ISO, shutter speed, and aperture setting to get a good low-light shot.

Hope this helps!

When taking night sport shots I don't think I have the right settings for clear photos they are coming out tooo blurry. Help!!! the photos are grainy also and dark. Could you send me the correct setting...


More likely you don't have enough light for clear photos. There's not too much you can do about this, since you probably can't add more light to the stadium or arena and the action is too far away for your flash.

Since the low light is going to force a rather slow shutter speed on you, you need to stabilize the camera. Use a tripod or monopod. That won't stop the athletes from blurring, but at least the setting will be sharper. Alternatively you can try panning with the motion, freezing the athlete and blurring the background.

A faster lens will get you a couple of additional stops, but as such lenses can cost $2000 and more, unless you're taking pictures for Sports Illustrated...

Change the ISO setting to a higher figure but not too high or you will get color distortion or use a tripod or rest camera on solid object and use the self timer

IS THERE A WAY TO TAKE PICTURES ON SPORTS AND ADD


I take it you are after night shots.

Assuming that's the case, then your camera relies of the capabilities of the flash and that's invariably about 2-3 metres.

If you're shooting in good daylight, then the hightest ISO setting will give sharper pictures when movement is and issue.

Blurry still pictures


I had the same problem and found this forum.  In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom!  back on to focused pictures.  Hallelujah.
