EDIT double post.

I did take more photos, but all were just snaps. Too many people were walking around to be able to get a good view at anything for long enough.

Does anyone have any tips for when you only have a few seconds to take your photo ?

Indoors with out a flash...set your camera up and take some photos of anything as long as the light is simular to the shot you want! Then as the object gets free for a second take a focus lock on it by holding the shutter release button down half way. Then as the subject clears for a split second again take your shot! Works the same with the flash just open the flash and do the above steps! The flash will let you speed up the shutter and eliminate some of the shakiness! Hope this helps. It's the way I do it in a museum or display enviroment! Love it when they let you use a tripod! Seems to ward off folks!They see the camera and tripod and veer around me! Course that may be my size and Mad-Dawg stare!! LOLOL
