Shutter too slow and pics of people blurry. I have the camera on auto setting, push button half way down, focus, then all the way, take the pic. If the subject is moving AT ALL, the pic comes out blurry. There are other settings, but the one I want is the one that will take pics of my kids and not be blurry.

If your camera has a sport or action mode that would be your best option if your pics keep coming out blurry. These modes are made for action shots. Its worth a try! ... Samsung S860 Digital Camera

My sd700 is auto-metering light incorrectly and the pictures come out too dark. Sometimes simply re-framing/re-focusing the shot will make it work correctly, but not usually. Is it broken? Have I set something incorrectly? Is there a way to re-set the camera back to all its original default settings?

I have the same problem. Sometimes the camera works fine but sometimes it measures the light not correctly, or something like that. I'm not sure if it's only that it needs a cleaning inside, because when the light measuring fails the camera makes a d ... Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera

I purchased this camera yesterday. I tried to download pictures and got all the ARC products download which I really do not want and then could not find the way to just download the photos onto my PC. We did have the camera set to the USB setting on the camera. Does this not have a simple way to just download the pictures? I have had KoDak easyshare cameras and a Canon and never had this problem before.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster t ... GE A1255 Digital Camera

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.

It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!

The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

Shutter speed on the auto mode of my s1000 camera seems slow. how can it be increased in the auto mode? This is a Fuji camera and by the time I press the shutter button subjects have moved. I have set the camera back to the original factory settings and I can adjust the shutter speed in the manual position but in auto it seems really slow.

You need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus before you press the rest of the way. This eliminates "shutter lag". ... Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

Camera turns itself off too soon. There must be a setting to change the length of time from when you turn it on until it turns itself off, which is currently about 15 sec. Very annoying when you turn it on the camera comes on and works fine. If you wait more than 15 seconds the camera is off and the only way to get it back on is reach to the on switch and turn it on again. By then your subject is no longer smiling This should be very simple to find in the manual. Apparently the feature is not na
