Hello, I need some fast help here. I have a fuji S5100. How can I get my pictures to take without being blurry? Seems whenever my son moves and I snap a picture it blurs. I have tried to put it on the sports icon but it doesnt seem to help. Is there a way to get the shutter to open and close faster? Thank you for any help you give me!

Subnet,

Could be several factors contributing to the blurring. As a rule, the faster the shutter speed, the less blurring will occur. Too slow a shutter speed will not freeze any action. You might be moving the camera while snapping the pic. You may not be pre-focusing by holding the shutter release half way down. Your boy may be too darn fast to be captured by modern photographic equipment...but think of the Olympic potential...

Try posting a couple of pics that didn't turn out too well (with EXIF data attached), and maybe we can figure out what went wrong.

Something that I tried with my 5100 in similar situations was to set the autofocus to continuous. It seemed to help quite a bit.

  1. Make sure there is plenty of light in the picture so the camera doesn't have to compromise shutter speed to expose the picture correctly.[/*]
  2. Make sure the flash fires[/*]
  3. Try not to take the picture when the lens is zoomed all the way in, i.e. most magnification
