What are the normal settings for night shots on oly C3030Z. Shall I use flash when I shot on nights? If I set the aperture on F2.8 and the shutter from 2 to 16 sec. I got a lot of pixels on the picture. I found out that if I have the shutter open for a very long time there are many pixels on the shot. I hope you can tell me,about the settings for night shots. I am new to this digital world,and this is my first digital camera. Is this camera not good to shot in the night?

Focus problem I have had my nikon d-60 for one year. I have always had problems with the focus. At first I thought it was user error but after a few prof. photographers have used it, they have come to the same conclusions.

I have tried focus locking on my subject and slightly moving the camera, I have tried not moving the camera focusing the camera, I have tried multiple settings. I have not been able to resolve this on my

Blury I just bought the Olumpus C 765. It is a really good camera. I am very happy with it. But when I try to take a picture indoor of a moving subject, between the focus time and the flash working the subject is very blury or out of the picture. Is there a way to fix that? Is it normal?

I have an canon power shot A85. The image taken by it is so blur. We thought it may be the display issue, however the old picture saved in the card are still sharp. The camera can still be used to take video, and the quality is good. Is this due to the setting, since kids have played it more than 6 months. Thank you.

Blurry pictures My camera has two settings on the front. One is to take still pictures, such as flowers, the other setting is for action shots. My camera will not switch back to the action setting.
