Default Fuji low light blur? Please help......

Hi all,

I bought myself a Fuji F602Z a couple of months ago, what a fantastic camera.

Problem is that in slightly low light, if the subject moves or the camera is not 100% still I will get blur. I realise that this will happen to all cameras, but I was wondering if there was an adjustment to ASA settings or the like. What I really do not want is to always have to use the flash.

Any suggestions would be great,

Kind regards

Sean

Try bumping up your ISO settings. 200 or 400 or even 800 will gain you a bit of shutterspeed. Otherwise, use a tripod.

How would this affect the picture quality?

The tripod is great but try getting my 2 year old to stand still !!!

using the flash losses the look of the atmosphere...know what I mean?

"How would this affect the picture quality?"

The higher ISO settings will produce a bit more noise and graininess. Your call as to how much is acceptable.

LOL, I feel your pain.

"using the flash losses the look of the atmosphere...know what I mean?"

Ya gotta do what you gotta do I suppose. Maybe someone has a better suggestion? Good luck.

With Fujis SCCD's the ISO400 produces relatively low noise levels and is at least usable when approaching faster shutter speeds.

If you really don't want flash, and can still find focus even in manual, set ASA to 400, the shutter priority to 1/60 to 1/80, the f stop will max at f2.8, use wider angle, if in artificial light, preset WB to tungsten, shoot and bring back under exposed pic in editing and try noise reduction software. Getting some 12 volt halogen desk lights in the shooting area will help and avoid the harshness of flash.

But if subject is really active, flash is best. VOX

Default Get an auxiliary flash...

An auxiliary flash that can be bounced from the ceiling or wall will maintain that great skin tone you lose with direct onboard flash. I like the DS020 and the Sunpak Digital Flash. HTH. PatiO
