Why not to use the QuickShot mode?

What is the advantage of NOT using the QuickShot mode? (I figure there must be an advantage, since you have the option to turn it off)

Try setting the camera's scene mode to the Sports mode. Even if the children aren't actually engaging in sports, they're often moving as if they are. The camera will attempt to freeze the action, catching the children at whatever they're doing.

If you want to deliberately blur the action to give a sense of movement then you'll want something else. Try the Scenery mode. A big advantage of digital photography is that the pictures are free. Experiment. See what works best for you and the impression you want to deliver.

I am a photographer and I got this camera for when I want to take pictures of family and not having to get out my Nikon everytime and MISS a perfect shot. I got my camera in Dec of '09 LOVED it, but in Feb...


I'm surprised that you, a photographer who uses a Nikon, would buy a Kodak instead of a Nikon point and shoot. At any rate, the camera is obviously defective and you should take advantage of the warranty. Why, if it stopped in Feb. have you waited till Sept. to be concerned?

When I am in action mode (with the dial turned to the running man my picture is blurry and yellow


The mode you mention above is prioritized for speed moving object such as racing, basketball game, etc...

the blurry condition is caused by the movement was too fast so the camera couldn`t capture it, the yellowish picture is caused by unmatched white balance presetting

according to my experience, when you want to capture a moment like this,
switch the dial to S (shutter) mode, set the shutter speed to 1/80 or faster, using a flash will be an advantage, don`t forget to set the white balance to auto option

hope this advice help you with your problem

I can't figure out how to set the 10 second timer for my Canon A410..HELP!!!!


With the camera in the shooting mode:

1. Press the Func/Set button
2. Use the up or down arrows to select the Drive mode (normally a single square)
3. Use the left or right arrows to select the clock/10 icon (10 sec delay)
4. Press the Func/Set button again

To cancel, follow the same instructions but select the single shot mode (single square) at step 3

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12


I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

M42 adaptor


Quite right too. When the M42 adaptor is fitted there is absolutely no exchange of information between the lens and the body: M42 lenses pre-date all of those later developments. Your camera will also be unable to stop down the lens automatically when taking the picture, most M42 lenses don't even stop down automatically when connected to an M42 body.

You need to do things the old-fashioned way. Your camera needs to be set to meter manually, shutter priority mode may also be used. In manual mode you focus the lens as normal with the aperture ring set to the lowest aperture number (i.e.aperture is wide open).
You then make sure that the lens in in manual mode as well and stop down to whatever you want, if the image remains bright enough then you can adjust the precise focus using the hyperfocal principle if you like which takes advantage of the increased depth of field of a stopped down lens.
In manual mode, you then tell the camera what aperture you have set (read it from the lens barrel) and set the shutter speed using the camera's light meter to guide you. If using shutter priority mode then the camera will choose the shutter speed for you.
Check everything is set as you intend and press the shutter.

It all sounds long winded but is exactly how many of the world's greatest photos were taken and soon becomes second nature. You also learn far more about the relationship between aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings and will be able to talk about reciprocity like you know about it!

Blurry sports pictures that are inside and are fast moving b(basketball). Is the problem my lens? I am using a Canon XTI. I am a pure amateur just wanting pics of my daughter playing ball.


If you're shooting in the full Auto mode, you are not taking advantage of the capabilities of your digital SLR. Your pictures are blurry because the shutter has to stay open long enough to properly expose the picture, but the people are moving while the shutter is open. You need to increase your shutter speed or increase your ISO, which means you have to select another mode on your camera. You could invest in a "faster" lens, which means that it can allow more light into your camera, but is also more expensive. Try this excellent tutorial on using a digital SLR, then try it out with your camera (use your camera manual to find the correct mode selections, etc.)

Look at the topics under Photographic Concepts to get an understanding of the relationship between shutter speed, aperture, and film speed (ISO).
