Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera ?

I am not getting good pictures and what may be good settings ?

Answers :

The proper settings depend on what you're taking a picture of. You don't want the same settings for a landscape as for a portrait, for example. Even for a portrait, you may not want the same settings for a picture of a grandfather as for a picture of his granddaughter. That's why the camera gives you the different settings to choose from. The camera is a tool --- YOU are the photographer.

Visit your local library. They should have books on introductory photography describing what effect the different settings will have on your photos.

Blurry pictures I've had this camera for almost a year and everytime I want good pictures (vacation, birthdays, xmas) I'm disappointed with the quality of my pictures. So many of my pictures turn out blurry. And sometimes they'll look fine when reviewing on the camera, but when downloaded to my computer, the quality is poor. Some people say they keep their's on the auto setting, I find I need to keep mine on the nighttime setting to get decent pictures. Any sugggestions with settings, etc to hel

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

Blurry pictures Hello: Wondering if anyone has any problems with taking blurry pictures. It doesn't matter what I do, i.e., adjust the setting, exposure, etc., 9 out of 10 pictures come out all blurry. Is it just not a good camera, or is there any other suggestions from people out there that may be of help to me. Thank you for all that respond.

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob

Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is....
