Hey all, I was just at my cousins birthday and his dad was shooting some pictures with a Nikon Coolpix 5600... and to sum this up, it sucked.

Even with the flash, the camera gave very blurry images, the shutter delay was among the worst I've ever seen (probably a quarter to a half second after you pressed the shutter it took the picture).

I tried to get some good shots out of it, being a photographer myself, with no luck...

So are there any settings I need to tweak to make this camera work, or does it just plain suck?

well i am not an expert but i will guess and say
he either had the flash on red eye reduction or he wasn't pressing the shutter button' half way' prior to taking the photos.
i say this cause i have an E7600 and when i switch to red eye the shutter delay is atleast half a second. And you can read in imaging-resource.com for a review and btw they say the shutter lag is 0.081 for the 5600 which was said to be very fast in comparison to others.

not sure about the blurry photos
