A baseball hit my right pointing finger while it was resting on the shutter release button. The baseball broke my finger as well as jammed the shutter release button in the "completely pressed" position. I screwed a small screw into the threads on the D100's shutter release button and pulled the button up, but the switch part inside stayed down. How much to fix?

The most common causes of blurry pictures are not holding the camera still and correctly pressing the shutter release button or using a slow shutter speed.
Let\'s talk about properly holding your camera first. Always hold your camera with both hands. With an SLR such as yours, grip the left side of the camera with your left hand and cradle the camera from underneath with your right hand using you thumb and index fingers to zoom. Hold your arms so that both elbows rest on either side of your chest and brace the top of the camera against your forehead. This forms a rigid triangle of support.
The second thing you must do is properly press the shutter release button. Do not poke the button because you will jerk the camera and that can cause blur. Instead, start to press the button gradually increasing the pressure until the shutter trips. It should trip almost by surprise. This is very similar to how a marksman pulls the trigger on a gun.
Assuming that you are holding your camera correctly, not "punching" your shutter button and your camera is not defective, here are two easy ways to solve your problem. First, you could use the manual exposure mode and keep your shutter speed at 1/500 second or faster. Second, go to the "S" shutter priority mode and set the shutter speed above 1/500 second. Your camera will automatically adjust the f-stop (lens diaphragm opening) and "film speed" for proper exposure. Please let me know if this resolved your problem.
Like many point&shoot cameras, the SZ-12 does not have manual focus. The closest you can come is to point the camera at the object your want in focus, press the shutter release button halfway, then frame the photo the way you want it and press the shutter release button the rest of the way.
This "shutter lag" is a common situation with most compact point&shoot cameras. The camera has to do a lot of work when you press the button, including acquiring focus, metering the exposure, and switching the circuitry from displaying on the screen to recording to memory. More sophisticated (and more expensive) cameras have more hardware to reduce this lag.
You can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the action. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter. Keep it pressed halfway until the right moment and then press it the rest of the way.
How long have you had the camera? It just sounds like the camera is in Manual mode or "M" and the shutter speed is set really slow. Try putting it back on automatic, or twist the dial that will increase the shutter speed. You can find the manual on Nikon's website.
Change your focusing setting to spot focus. Then, focus on your main subject, keep the button half-way pressed while you re-compose the shot and then press it the rest of the way. Does that improve the shot?
No, it's not an error. What this
display indicates, is the availability of the total number of photos
you want to take. If the display says, "r06", then you are in JPEG
Mode. If it says "r03", then you are either 1) in RAW Mode, or 2) have
your Noise Reduction on (see FAQ #2). As you take a few photos in
succession, you will notice the indicator drops by how many photos you
I was just playing with this myself... Hit the "FUNC" button and scroll (if necessary) to "Drive Mode" Scroll right/left to select 10-second, 2-second, or custom timer setting. If custom, hit the "Set" button then select the timer delay and number of shots to take. Leave the FUNC display on the screen when you hit the shutter release. It begins counting down when you hit the shutter button, so make sure you've got it pointed where you want it (preferably on a tripod, though any stable surface will do in a pinch).
