Nixon cool pix 8.0mp

I am looking online and it says that it has 4-1/1000 shutter speed. Can i turn that off and make it one simple flash? I do not like 4 flashes before a picture.

I believe that means the range is from 4 seconds exposure to 1/1000 second exposure time, and does not refer to the number of flashes.
Some cameras will flash several times before the main flash while taking a picture if it is set to red-eye reduction (because the first 3 flashes make the subject's pupils go smaller).
Under normal flash photography, there will be only one flash.
If you set the camera to automatic, it will do most ofthe work for you.

I can't change shutter speed


On page 42 of the manual you can read what you can do to change the shutter speed. Put it on S, and use the command dial to change the speed.

How to set shutter speed in fuji fine pix S2940


That depends on the exposure mode. In any of the automatic point&shoot modes you have no control over the shutter speed, the camera sets what it thinks is the proper shutter speed. In the P (Program AE) mode you can adjust the shutter speed by pressing the +/- button. In the S (Shutter Priority) and M (Manual) modes you control the shutter speed by pressing the +/- button and then using the cursor-up/down buttons.

Nixon S8100 fairly new camera, nice pics if the subject doesnt move but horrible pictures if object moves. Very blurry.


If everything in the picture is blurry, you are moving the camera when you press the shutter button. If only the subject is blurry and the background is clear the problem is too slow shutter speed. If this is cause by movement of the camera you must learn to SQUEESE the button while being sure you don't move the camera. It just takes a little practice. If this problem caused by a shutter speed that is too slow, it is remedied by increasing the ISO "film" speed. Even though you have no film, the camera has a "speed" setting that relates to that. The higher ISO value increases the camera's sensitivity to light and thus allows for faster shutter speed. Normally the ISO choices are 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600. Try using 400. The ISO setting is in one of your camera menus. 400 is fast enough to solve your problem in all but very fast movement of either the camera or subject. Using ISO above 400 will cause your pictures to look grainy and not as sharp. Use the highest speed only when absolutely necessary. Slower ISO numbers produce the finest grain and thus the sharpest pictures. It a trade off between ISO and shutter speed because the exposure is a combination of the ISO and shutter speed and lens opening. Each one effects the exposure by half or double.

Nikon cool pix l100 is there a way to adjust


Are you sure it's really turning off? My camera goes into a "sleep" or power down mode....a slight pressure on the shutter button wakes it up and it's ready to shoot.

Nikon D60x Blurry night pictures


Try switching to Shutter Prority (S) with a fast shutter speed.If the light is not so good, up the iso to 800 to gain that faster shutter speed..

You do not say the lens in use ? if VR, make sure its switched on or use a tripod.

Hope this helps

Help flash Nixon coolpix L11


hello,

make sure when you press the round selection button on the back of the camera flash option, you press the ok in the center of the button on the back.

it will show brief yellow AUTO in the LCD screen upper right corner for a sec.

when you are going to take a picture holding the shutter button half way down, you should see up at the right corner outside of the LCD screen a red led flashing to indicate flash is ready.

one thing to try if this is not working, find the camera reset option in the menu. after doing this you may have to reset the date & time. it will bring the camera back to default settings

on the bad side if these dont work, possible flash circuit may have failed inside the camera.

good luck!

Shooting with External Flash


Without more information, it sounds like the flash may be set to a manual mode. Try setting the flash to an auto mode. The display should indicate something to the effect of "E-TTL" or maybe just "TTL". The reason your images are blurry, would be due to a slow shutter speed being used on the camera. If your flash is not set to trigger automatically, then the camera will use the slowest shutter speed to acheive the proper exposure of the image. My assumption would be that if you were to take two images back-to-back with the speedlight set to your current setting, one with the speedlight the other with the pop-up flash, the latter would not be blurry. Hope this helps.

How do i reset my camera


After selecting flash off mode the camera determine the shutter speed according to the available light which may be rather slow.Therefore either camera shakes or the object or may be both of them while taking pictures.That's why pictures are blurry. Keep camera steady or mount it on a tripod while taking pictures on flash off mode. Once u set the date & time and select OK I think it will not bother u again.
