Having problems with your Kodak EASYSHARE M763 Digital Camera ?

How do I shorten the shutter speed.

\015 Trying to take pictures of my active granddaughter, the delay is making it impossible. I am missing all the good shots.\015

Answers :

Shutter lag is one (of the many) problems with compact point&shoot cameras, not seen in bulkier (costlier, more complicated) dSLRs. You can reduce the lag by pressing the shutter release button halfway to focus and meter beforehand. Keep the button half-pressed while anticipating the key moment, then press the button the rest of the way.

You'll have to release the button and half-press it again if the distance to the subject changes, or it moves to/from light/shadow.

Shutter speed Hi all, I just recently bought the s400, and I love the camera, though I will admit I was disappointed that I couldn't control the shutter speed. I am confused though, becuase looking at reviews and pictures taken by the s400 the author said what the shutter speed was - how could they possibly know that? Is there a way to tell what your shutter speed is? I can't figure it out .. It is said that shutter is best at 1/125 for motion pictures - so how will I know if thats what my sh

Shutter Speed Why is it that when I take a picture, if Im shaking or shivering just a bit, the picture comes out really blurred.

Nikon D80 with a Sigma Lens (80 to 200 I think). In manual mode, often shutter won't release - this was a close up of a hummingbird with a fast shutter speed. Internal light meter showed underexposed, but the background was dark green. Initially, the shutter released, but later would not operate either with a remote, or by manually depressed the shutter release button. Switching back to auto, the camera seemed to work fine, but in this mode could not get the desired shutter speed. In full manual

Minolta x-300 I have my father's Minolta X-300. It all seems to work, I fitted new batteries, but there is a delay in the shutter speed. When you look in the viewfinder, you see the speeds on the right and depending on the light/aperture/etc. 2 red lights light up the proper speed, but there is a flashing red light at 1 or 1/2 all the time,and the shutter works at that speed. Could anyone tell me what I have done wrong, my Dad used it some time ago and it was alright, so I have got it wrong. Tha


The X-300 is very similar to the X-700 minus a few features like program 'P' mode. The VF displays are very similar for metering and exposure. You can read the users guide for the X700 here on ... Digital Cameras

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!

Shutter Lag All, I have an Olympus 5050 Digital Camera that I have been using for a while now for home use and I am quite happy with the results. The only complaint I have is with the capture speed of the camera. The shutter lag seems to be about between 3-5 seconds which becomes quite obvious while taking pictures of moving objects (moving kids). I don't know if the issue is with the shutter speed of the camera or with the slower memory cards. I am using the SimpleTecg 256 MB Compact Flash card


Card speed won't interfere with shutter lag.\015\012\015\012The lag is much less (near non-existent) if you pre-focus. Or use manual focus with small enough aperture to get lots of depth of field. Make sure your kids are in the focus zone and just sn ... Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom 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.

I am unable to get the shutter speed above 1/60 on our D200. It was working fine. Is there some setting in the camera that would limit shutter speed even with flash?

I was at a basketball game last night and taking pictures with the d80 and the 55-200 lens. All of the pictures I took in auto focus were blurry. I changed it to the S mode with shutter speed at 4000 and those pictures came out completely dark with nothing in the picture. I changed the setting to the sports mode and the shutter speed is not fast enough because I have the same issue with blurring or out of focus.
