Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S600 Digital Camera ?

How to get better result from s600 while taking the photos at night


Answers :

The first piece of advice I can give you is to use a stable support, such as a tripod.

Obviously, the main problem with night photography is the lack of light. There are several things you can do to combat the situation.

One is to add light. The camera's built-in flash can add some, though not a whole lot, as long as the subject is not too far away. You'll have problems if the subjects are not all the same distance away. In a group picture you'll get the nearer people blown out while the farther people disappear into the shadows.

You can raise the ISO, but this will increase the digital noise, making the pics look "grainy."

This leaves a slower shutter speed. This makes a problem of motion, both of the subject and of the camera. There's not much you can do about the subject motion (except possibly panning) except to choose you shooting spot so that the motion is either toward or away from you instead of across your line of sight. The best way of combating camera motion gets us back to the first thing I said.

I own cannon G9. I fail to get good sharp open outdoor pictures at night especially in place not well lighted. Do I all the time have to take pictures Manually to get sharp pictures as we do with focus adjustment in other camera ? I am not happy with keeping adjustment on night mode. Where can I read the correct programming of Apperature speed iso etc to take better pictures. Or can you suggest custom setting for outdoor and indoor night pictures thanks hoshangnekoo

My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are blured. I have tried many settings and different exposures however I keep getting the same result. What can I do ? The worst mode on this camera is the auto mode, I can never get a clear indoor picture. This camera takes beautiful pictures of flowers/nature and all outdoor photo's turn out beautiful it is the indoor photo's I have even tried the sports mode for when people move but I still get a very blured image


Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or s ... Fuji FinePix S2000hd Digital Camera

White out Every photo I take seems to white out, as if it is letting in to much light. But it is more than this, as it is possible to see white streaking on the image as well. I have also tried taking photos in various manual settings, resulting in the same problem. It seems to be a little better in doors. However when I use video mode the image is normal. This problem first occured on holiday in Singapore - when I took it into a shop out there they said it was probably the heat. But the problem

Grainy, image I bought my Riccoh Caplio GX 5.1 mp three years ago. At first it took the best pictures I could wish for, but for monyhs now I am getting very variable results. Some photos are OK, but many are grainy, "pixleated" - having tiny spots of the primary colours throughout the image. There doesn't seem to be any one situation when this happens. It can be inside, outside, flash or none. The pictures also seem to be a lot darker, so photos taken inside or at night are much poorer quality,


You might have changed the settings; ISO setting too high or something else, just reset it to factory settings if you can't figure out ISO. ... Ricoh Caplio GX Digital Camera

An f2.8 lens is pretty good lens speed, which means that the size opening the lens can make to let light thru it. Try this out:\012Set you camera to at least ASA 1000 sensitivity then set your camera to 'A' or Aperature mode. Walk down to the ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I need help setting my Canon EOS Rebel XSi. I was taking photos of my son's soccer game last evening and most of them came out blurry. What setting/s should I set my camera on to get great night shots of his soccer game? Help - as I need to take more pics for tomorows game! Thanks, Tammy


First of all, don't use the flash...it's only good for a short distance. Obviously, you need a fast shutter speed to stop the action. To get this to happen while in auto mode, you will need to set the ISO to a higher number such as 800 or 1600. You w ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

In a drunken haze on Friday night, I was looking for my camera for hours, to record the crazy antics of the eve. When I found it later, much to my dismay, the screen had several cracks on it. This is the result of it being found in my back pocket!! I have been able to get all the photos off the memory stick, and the camera still operates perfectly, except there is no image visible on the screen. When switched on there are no unusual whirring noises that would indicate internal mechanical problem

Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.
