    The shutter speed is so slow that most of our photos turn out blurred because people turn and walk away before the picture is taken.

I'm using the sports mode and all my shots are blurry and orange


It may just be too dark for action photography. Try turning your ISO up to 1000+. Set your computer in Tv (Time Priority Mode). Use the top wheel to adjust the shutter time to something like 200 or greater. Keep an eye on the aperture value. If it starts flashing, you don't have enough light to support your settings.

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.

I have the hand Icon and canot get it off- I am sure that is why my pictures are not shooting nicely - this is the only different thing I have now from before


The hand icon is just a warning that the shutter speed used for the current photo is rather slow so it's warning you that it will probably be blurry due to you moving the camera "during" the shot.

It needs more light to fire the shutter faster. If it's fast, then the chance of you moving during the shot is reduced.

So ..

1. Turn on the built-in flash. That will set the shutter speed faster automatically to about 1/60th of a second. Or

2. Get outside where there is more light. Or

3. Use a camera tripod to hold it steady. Or set the camera down on a flat surface, aim it, and then use the built-in self timer to take the shot for you. The shot will then be clear even if it's a long exposure, unless your subject itself is moving. .

4.. Last resort you can turn up the ISO speed on some models of camera's. This increases CCD noise (static) in the photo but also increases the shutter speed by 50% with each step up, from ISO 100 to 200 for example. All better camera's have this option such as Nikon and Canon. I leave the ISO set low to 80 or 100 to get the clearest shots and use a tripod if necessary when the shutter speed is slow due to dim lighting. I shoot even at midnight and use a 15 second exposure to get the shot and it works great.

Be aware that "Auto" modes will often turn the ISO up too far such as 800 or 1600 and yes that does get the shutter speed up higher but it makes it too grainy to use.

Note that newer higher end camera's like the Canon S90 or the G11 can shoot at ISO 200, 400 and higher with little noise. The S90 also has a lens rated at f2.0 which is 2x faster than almost anything else out there right now. So your chance of a good shot with the S90 is much better than with most other camera's when dealing with marginal lighting such as indoors.
It's also optically stabilized and it really works.

Next time post what model of camera you have.

Your shutter leavers are getting slow. They will fail soon, most likely the old grease is sticking. You can get a replacement body for $40 as repairs/cleaning will be $80+

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem


The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#/pages/Keller-TX/Raving-Design/78762448229?v=photos&ref=ts Learn to use the camera for ur events.

Shutter Speed too slow on indoor sports for Nikon D60


Maybe. Assuming you can't add more light, you can either increase the ISO and/or open up the aperture. Try going to A (Aperture) mode and opening up the lens all the way. This will give you the fastest shutter speed possible under the conditions. That may or may not be fast enough.

Camcorders


Almost any new digital camcorder will work great, but you want to make sure it has a high speed shutter setting.  Set the shutter speed as high as possible (which means you'll need a lot of light... day light is perfect).  You're still only shooting 30 frames per second, but each shot will be sharper (less motion blur) as the shutter speed increase.  High-end cameras can go up to as much as 1/10000th of a second, but even 1/500 would be great.  Standard, default shutter speed is 1/60th.
For playback, you can use the same camera with a remote control.  Just press play, then just before the swing press pause.  Then use the frame advance button to move 1 frame at a time.  Multiple presses of the frame button will increase the speed... to slow motion.  

Good luck!

3100Z Focus Problems


re you sure the out of focus condition is due to the actually focus or do to motion blur? I think the 3100Z in auto and flash on will set the shutter speed fairly low like 1/30th of a second for wide angle and 1/90th for full telephoto. This may not be fast enough to avoid motion blur. I would suggest using manual mode and shutter priority and set the shutter speed to 1/100th of a second. This won't effect the flash output but will reduce the amount of ambient light being captured which could cause long range shots to become darker in the distance. Name of the game, don't be afraid to take it off auto mode and experiment with manual setting.
