How to Make background blur in fujifilm finepix sl310

the background blurs when the aperture number is low (like 2.8 or so) one needs to either set the aperture priority such - and let the camera select the iso and the shutter speed - or go manual and set this yourself, considering the meter readings to get a balanced image.

Sounds like you have the flash unit turned off.

What is the best image mode for Nikon Coolpix s4000

That depends. If there was a single "best" mode for all pictures then the designers wouldn't have put other modes into the camera.

The best mode depends on what you're taking a picture of, and more importantly, on what you want the picture to say to the viewer. For a landscape, for example, you'll probably want everything from the flowers in the foreground to the mountains in the background to be in focus. For a portrait, you'll want the person's face in focus but the background to be blurred. For a picture of kids at play you'll probably want a fast shutter speed to stop the action. For a picture of leaves swirling in a stream you may want a slow shutter speed.

The best mode depends on what YOU as the photographer want the image to say.

Press the +/- button, the shutter speed and aperture are displayed
press the selector up/down to select the aperture
press the +/- button to exit shooting mode

IF the selected aperture is outside the shooting range of the camera, shutter speed will show ---
