Settings for movement on Cannon Power shot SX100 IS

My husband said this would be a great camera for action pictures of my dogs but any action pictures I take are blurry. Do I not have the right settings?? I had it on children and pets. I'm really disappointed with this camera if this is the case.

The right setting should be one that says for moving objects or some definitions like that in your camara.

Take care

There is no sound when I play back the video on my camera, My camera is Canon power Shot SX130. I am recording sound and cant not hear it when it is played back..HELP!! Question #2....When The flash is...


Ensure the volume is on under the Menu of your camera. That's about as much as I can tell you with that.

However, I can diagnose the blurry picture. What's happening is your exposure is set for too long, and your shutter remains open longer than it should.

Remove the camera from the AUTO setting and place it on the M setting.

From here, you will see something that either has a fraction like 1/200 or 0'3". What you want is to adjust that fraction using your toggle keys so that the fraction of the shutter speed is reduced to smaller increments.

A good reference is as follows

1'0" - Your shutter will be open for 1 second, gathering a lot of light. Anything moving in the photo will by blurry. Best used for still photo's in low-light conditions. Use a tripod or stable surface.

0'3" - Used for low light photo's where there is minimal movement. Not good for hand-held.

1/100 - Used for mid-light photo's where there is minimal movement. Can be taken hand-held, but a tripod is still recommended.

1/400 - Better for taking shots in well-lit scenes where things are moving. Camera blur won't be a problem unless subject is moving greater than 10mph.

1/1000 - Great for taking shots of things moving very quickly. Scene must be well lit and it will freeze the action of whatever it's taking a photo of. No tripod needed.


Hope this helps!

I just bought a Canon sx120 IS and am about to return it. There is no action mode, and at least half of my pictures are blurry, even still shots! Can you tell me what is happening, or if there is a...


if the lens is removeable ensure it is fitted correctly.
if there is a manaul af setting make sure it is in af for autofocus.
ensure you are not in macro mode or close up mode as this will cause bluring on non close up pictures.
to test take a picture of a subject very close up and see if it is in focus if it is you need to change camera out of macro mode.
action mode is not available for macro mode so this maybe is the case.
action mode on cannon looks like a square with bottom right corner hilighted to look like a stack of images. make sure this is set for sequence shots.

I have the Nikon D60 - Ive taken sport/action pictures


The main difference between the two shooting conditions is the amount of light you have to work with. For the indoor action shots, set the ISO setting to the highest available through the menu (1600 ISO) to maximize the ability of the camera to work with the diminished light. The other (but more expensive) way to achieve better indoor shots is with the use of a "faster" lens, ie one with a lower maximum f stop number (f2.8 is faster than f3.5, for instance). Also ensure you are shooting with your lens at its widest f stop setting (lowest number).

Blurry action pictures!


This Powershot A590 camera has a Kids and Pets mode that may help. If that doesn't work, you need to set your camera to Shutter Priority (TV) mode on the dial. Then you use the arrows to increase or decrease the shutter speed setting. Depending on the sport/action, your shutter may need to be 1/400 up to 1/1000 or higher.

You may find you don't have enough light to get a fast shutter speed at the standard ISO, so you may also need to increase the ISO. Only increase it as much as needed to get your shots, and don't forget to return it to a lower ISO when you are done. You set the ISO from the Func/Set button menu.

You will have a relatively shallow area of focus (called depth of field) unless you have a LOT of light and are using a relatively slower shutter (e.g. 1/400 vs 1/1000). So be sure to keep the center of the focus on the player you are shooting.

Check your user manual for instructions on how to change to the AV mode and how to set the ISO. If you don't have your user manual, you can download it here, from Canon.

Finally, this type of camera tends to have a lot of "shutter lag" between when you press the shutter and when it takes the photo. You need to plan ahead and press the shutter in advance of the "peak action" when you want to capture the photo.

Blurry action shots


try using the manual setting. Put the exposure to the highest setting, which would probably be about 1/1000 of a second. If you're shooting in not so good light 1/200 is good also.
