Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S51S Digital Camera ?

I feel like the shutter speed is slow because i am missing pictures


Answers :

You are probably rushing the shutter press. The first pressure on the shutter causes the autofocus to focus and lock on the subject. Then you press more firmly to take the picture. If you try to do this in one jab, you might get unfoccused pictures or fail to take a picture at all. Some cameras have a "sports" mode that is meant to speed up the shutter press for action shots, but this can be at the expense of good focussing. I suggest that you read the manual carefully about what may seem the very simple process of pressing the shutter button. There will be many different aspects to this in a complex piece of equipment like a digital camera.

Shutter speed I cannot remember the aperture, but when I try to take a picture of the moon with my FZ20, even @ 2.8 aperture, I certainly do not have 1/100s shutter speed, but more like 1/10 or even less (P mode). I wonder if there is a problem with my camera ? How can I check that it is correct ? Can someone with experience of moon shot give me some "standard" shutter/aperture so I can compare ?


Rule of thumb I read was f11 and then 1/ISO for shutter speed. This means that if you're using ISO 100, you use 1/100. ISO 80, then 1/80. White balance set to SUN (because moon is reflecting sunlight).\015\012\015\012Wait! My camera doesn't do f11!!! ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera
