If you can are turning the flash off and on, you are no longer in the "Auto" mode. Rotate the top selector dial to select the green "Auto" position. This will enable the camera to automatically select the best aperture and shutter speed based on the available lighting. It will also decide whether it needs flash or not.

As you gain confidence in your abilities, experiment with the other settings on the dial. May I suggest first trying the "P" program setting. This is similar to auto, but will enable you to turn off the flash during low-light level shots. Still the camera will select the best aperture and shutter speed based on the lighting. But in very low lighting, you may have to keep the camera extra steady (such as with a tripod) to minimize camera shake as the picture is taken.

The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Make sure you are shooting in a mode with the flash enabled and that should enable the anti-blur features of the camera

When i dont use the flash on a nikon it is blured


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

Blurred football pictures


low light means the shutter stays open longer to capture the image.   Try changing exposure settings.
