You are probably rushing the shutter press. The first pressure on the shutter causes the autofocus to focus and lock on the subject. Then you press more firmly to take the picture. If you try to do this in one jab, you might get unfoccused pictures or fail to take a picture at all. Some cameras have a "sports" mode that is meant to speed up the shutter press for action shots, but this can be at the expense of good focussing. I suggest that you read the manual carefully about what may seem the very simple process of pressing the shutter button. There will be many different aspects to this in a complex piece of equipment like a digital camera.

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.

The pictures are blurry due to camera shake, which in itself is caused by the slow shutter speed. Try using shake reduction setting. To increase the shutter speed, raise the ISO rating.

The shutter speed seems really slow so the picture always comes out fuzzy. How can I change the shutter speed?


You can't change the shutter speed but you can set the ISO to a higher number thereby forcing the shutter to speed up.

How do I change the shutter speed?


This is "shutter lag," the delay between pressing the shutter release button and the camera actually taking a picture. This is a common situation with many compact cameras. The camera has to focus on the subject, meter the exposure, and switch the circuitry from displaying on the screen to recording the image and saving it in memory. More sophisticated (and expensive) DSLRs eliminate this shutter lag by having more dedicated hardware for this.

With a compact camera, you can reduce the shutter lag by anticipating the shot. Press the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter the exposure. Continue to hold the shutter release button halfway until the right time, then press it the rest of the way.

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...

Slow shutter speed


from the manual: Using Shutter-Priority Mode 1. Set the mode dial to S (shutter-priority) and a yellow arrowhead on the screen points to the current shutter speed. Press the jog dial and the current shutter speed turns yellow. 2. With the current shutter speed displayed in yellow, rotate the jog dial to select the speed you want to use. 3. Take the picture. If a workable aperture isn?t available for the shutter speed you?ve selected, the shutter speed indicator on the screen flashes when you press the shutter button halfway down. You can use the setting as is, or press the jog dial down to select the shutter speed again and rotate it to select a new shutter speed.
