    The shutter speed is so slow that most of our photos turn out blurred because people turn and walk away before the picture is taken.

My shutter speed is very slow and when I take pictures I think when it's dark is when I notice the problem but the picture will not take. Also if someone moves their face is blurry.


What mode are you shooting in? It seems you may either have your shutter speed set manually to a slow speed or, alternatively you have set your apperture set to a high number e.g f/20 or there abouts. Because this is a very narrow apperture the camera will compensate by using a slow shutter speed.
Try some shots in fully automatic mode and see what happens. With a slow shutter speed you can expect any movement to produce blurred images.

How to chk if IS is working on Canon EF-S 18-55


Take handheld pictures at a slow shutter speed (1/8 to 1/30, say) with the IS switched on and off. Shoot the same subject under the same conditions, zoomed in all the way to 55mm. Then look at them on your computer, zoom in to 100%, and see if they look the same.

Make sure you compare the pics at the same shutter speed. The EXIF info will show the shutter speed and the (alleged) IS status.

You can also try listening to the lens, but that's not as reliable since it may indicate the lens trying but not succeeding.

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem


The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#/pages/Keller-TX/Raving-Design/78762448229?v=photos&ref=ts Learn to use the camera for ur events.

Camera takes to long to snap pictures


This is a common situation with many compact point&shoot cameras. This is because before the camera can take the picture it must focus, meter the light to set the exposure, and more. Bigger, more expensive cameras have more hardware to help eliminate this "shutter lag."

You can anticipate the action. Press the shutter button halfway to focus and meter. Hold the shutter button there until the peak of the action and then press it the rest of the way. This will eliminate much of the shutter lag.

My camera is way to slow to take a picture


If you read the reviews on A10 it has something like 1.73 seconds shutter lag, which is very slow to some other cameras with only 0.3 shutter lag. Redeuce the pixels to 6mb. Also a weak battery and maybe a under performing m.card add to your camera seem to be slower usual.

Shutter speed


shutter speed has nothing to do with battery power. If you have a SLR camera you use the shutter speed option when you want to have control of the shutter speed, slow shutter speed means if your taking a picture of a waterfall and you want to see the actual droplets you set a slow shutter speed, if you want it to look more smooth/flowing you set a faster shutter speed, if you do not have a SLR camera you probably dont have much say so in shutter speed...

Camcorders


Almost any new digital camcorder will work great, but you want to make sure it has a high speed shutter setting.  Set the shutter speed as high as possible (which means you'll need a lot of light... day light is perfect).  You're still only shooting 30 frames per second, but each shot will be sharper (less motion blur) as the shutter speed increase.  High-end cameras can go up to as much as 1/10000th of a second, but even 1/500 would be great.  Standard, default shutter speed is 1/60th.
For playback, you can use the same camera with a remote control.  Just press play, then just before the swing press pause.  Then use the frame advance button to move 1 frame at a time.  Multiple presses of the frame button will increase the speed... to slow motion.  

Good luck!

Dark pictures


You can try adjusting your exposure settings, or try and use the slow shutter speed settings like the auto night mode... Try increasing the white balance as well...
