ok......i don't have a kodak lol but this applies to all cameras......a shutter speed is how fast the "shutter" opens and closes
a shutter is a little piece of plastic(or metal) that opens to let light in to the CCD or film.......if your camera has manual mode you can change how fast or slow that piece of metal or plastic opens or closes.......if you have it set to stay open longer it let's more light it and causes the picture to be brighter or normal in darker situations..
hopefully this helps

you change it to Manual mode.....(you might want to read the manual for your camera to learn all the features of it)
you can find how to change it in the manual (i don't know )
