I hope someone can help with these 2 dx-6490 questions..

1. when I remove the rechargable battery for a long period of time (over night for instance), and then come back and put it in and turn on the camera, it asks me for the date and time again. is this normal?

2. Also when using the PSAM mode, which setting is ther shutter speed? I have been trying to lean all the features of this mode, but it is just making my pictures blurry since it appears the shutter is being held open too long.

Yup, the camera will reset itself within 30 minutes.


Use either S or M mode and look at the bottom right of the screen and you will see a fraction e.g 1/30 or one thirtieth of a second.

Use the jog dial to change the speeds but 1/125 up to 1/1000 is good at freezing the action on a sunny day.
