Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera ?

Blurry action shots

\015 Hi,\015\012I have the Canon sx100 digital camera. The only action mode that it seems to have is for "kids and pets". I took a few shots with it and they all came out blurry. Any thoughts? Thanks! :)\015

Answers :

Try using the manual setting. Put the exposure to the highest setting, which would probably be about 1/1000 of a second. If you're shooting in not so good light 1/200 is good also.

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. There is a switch on the front of the camera. I have switched it to the right position, and it won't work. I have also taken the batteries out of the camera and switched it again. No dice. This sucks because I am missing a lot of good pictures of my kids. please help.

Shutter speed I have had my camera for 6 months. Today I used it for soccer pics and put it on sport mode and every pic I took is blurry. We looked on the information of the pics and the shutter speed is really low. My husband started to look and try to manually adjust some things and the speed will not change. States LOW. I also looked at the soccer portraits I took right before the action shots same day...and some of those are a little blurry as well. What could be wrong? Please help!

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

Night shots Can someone tell me what My camera should be set on to take night shots. I have tried and tried to figure it out and cant. They do not come out they end up being very dark and usually blurry too. I have a Nikon D70 and love it but get very frustrated because of not being able to take night shots.
