Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera ?
How do I change the shutter speed?
\015 I can't quite figure out how to change the shutter speed on this. I need it to be as fast as possible as I'm trying to shoot aquarium fish, who are not very cooperative subjects.\015
You can't change the shutter speed on a point-and-shoot camera. You can change modes and some settings that will force the camera to fire the shutter at faster speeds. For example, if your camera has a "sports" mode, that will fire faster. You can set the ISO to a higher setting to cause the shutter to fire faster.
That's one of the many problems with compact point&shoot cameras; they simply don't give you enough control overrides when you want them, unlike dSLRs. About the best you can do is to raise the ISO as high as you can and use the Sports mode. You don't want to use the flash, as that's just going to give you the reflection off the glass.

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 have a Fuji S1000FP and for the most part it takes great photos EXCEPT when I take pictures into the sun then my photos are either white or black and no image. I will admit I just want a point and shoot camera because I don't understand shutter speed and such. However, I have attempted to change the shutter speeds and still nothing. I have tried all the pre settings as well. (This camera claims to be one of the better outdoor cameras. ) Can anyone offer words of wisdom on this. Ruth

Continuous shooting I'm new to this so bare with me. I just got my Nikon D60 and I want to shoot pictures in continuous mode. I set it on manual, go into the menu and change it to continuous. I rotate the dial so it changes the shutter speed but when I take pictures it's just a black screen. As a matter of fact any time I try to take a picture in M it's just black. I'm hoping that there is just a setting I need to change and there's not something wrong with my camera. Thanks.
