I am having trouble taking indoor photos, with flourecsent lighting. They all come out blurry. Anyone know how I can correct this? I also cannot take clear photos of my kid's sports. It seems that the shutter speed just isn't fast enough even on sport setting. How do I adjust shutter speed on this camera?

Use A mode and set the biggest aperture you can set (f3.5 ?) this this will then allow the camera the fastest shutter for the availbe light. In low light conditions this still may onlt be 1/4 sec which is still to slow for hand holding a camera. Best you turn your flash on huh.

The flash is suppose to help with the lighting situation in order to lower the chances of you taking blurry pictures. Usually indoor pictures must have the flash go off in order to get clear pictures. If your outdoor pictures are also coming out blurry then you probably have some problem with the lens. My first suggestion is for you to go into the menu and reset all functions to default. You will have to read the manual to find which menu it is in, but I guarantee you that it is in the camera menu. If the reset does not fix your problem then the lens is probably out of position or damaged in some way. You would need to send into an authorized service center for repairs if this is the case. I know that Photo Tech in NYC is authorized for Nikon repairs. www.phototech.com is the contact info.
Since there is less light, the camera leaves the shutter open for a longer time....plenty of time for you to move the camera slightly enough to blur the pictures. Here are some suggestions:
1. If the camera has some version of "shake control" or "image stabilization", turn it on.
2. Set the ISO to a higher number.
3. Turn on more lights inside if possible.
4. Use a tripod or set the camera on a firm surface.
blurry pictures often comes from the slightest movement when the pictures is snapped. Don;t know if that is your problem or not try a photo tripod and see if that helps or check your trouble shooting area of your amnual. if you don't have the manual go to this site for any type of manual:::: http://tv.manualsonline.com/search.html?q=vr+5940&submit.x=35&submit.y=14
If this is happening only in low-light situations when the flash is not on, check your manual to turn the camera's high-sensitivity feature on. Or change the ISO to the highest setting (1000 is good) for these pictures. That should reduce blur and shake. Of course, putting the camera on a tripod or beanbag, or resting your elbows on a solid surface, will have the same effect.
Built in flash units on digital cameras are only meant to be used out to a distance of 6-12 feet. When taking photos of events ie graduations, sporting events, concerts you need to do two things. 1). Change the ISO setting on your camera. This is the same as the old film speed ratings the higher the number the more sensitive the camera becomes. try ISO 1600 or above in low light. 2) You have a mode setting, set it for the type of lighting that is in the space you are in, incandescent, flourescent or whatever, it's easy to do. and finally 3) Turn off your flash! When your flash is on your camera closes up the aperature and takes the picture at a higher rate of speed in anticipation of reflected light off of nearby objects, so your pictures will be darker and blurrier with the flash on.
Even high grade professional flashes only work out to 20-30 feet so they won't help you. Read your cameras manual on taking pictures in low light conditions. It will give you all of the above in great detail. You have a great camera but you need to learn how it works, don't give up on it.
Sony Cybershot works on technology of where is checks the srround light, if light is fine (like in Sun or outside) phots are fine. solution to this either replace flash or put some big light on while taking photos
Blurry images can be caused by any or all of the following:
* Distance/Focus range -- the Fun! Digital 320 has a fixed focus range of 3 - 6 feet (1.8 meters) for brightly lit indoor photography, 3 ft. (1 meter) - infinity for outdoor photography. For best results, make sure that the camera is at least 3 feet away from the subject(s) when taking pictures.
* Camera/Subject movement -- This is a common cause of blurriness, especially in low-light situations (see Lighting below). Hold the camera as steadily as possible while taking a photo, or use a tripod (a tripod mount is located on the bottom of the camera). Avoid subjects that are in motion.
* Insufficient lighting -- the Fun! Digital 320 is designed for taking photos outdoors or in brightly lit environments. Inadequate lighting can exaggerate camera movement and contribute to blurred, "muddied," or uncrisp images.
* Lens condition -- Check the lens periodically for smudges. If necessary, wipe the lens clean with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues.
* Enlarging images using software -- otherwise normal digital images can appear to become blurry and/or blotchy when over-enlarged in software. To see an image's "true" appearance, use the software's Zoom In or Zoom Out feature to view it at 100%.
