When I saw this, I thought that YOU were the Nikon training specialist! :o :O This is a great article! I'll still be a total fail, when it comes to taking pictures, but at least we all know that I try. :rofl

You take great photographs--do you have a Nikon?

You should. We more pics from you! :rofl:D

That last pic is wonderful!!!

I really should stop taking pics with my iPhone camera and bust out the Nikon. :rofl2

Thank you! And, yes, you should! :rofl

I think it's really ironic that the settings suggested are what I already use!! :rofl :rofl your pics are great :)

Thank you!

I was getting toward the same settings on my own as well, but it's nice to read confirmations like speeds faster than 1/125s isn't going to do anything more for the pic. :D

Go for a DSLR or a mirrorless. You can do a lot more with them, and their prices have gone down quite low. :)

I'm not at all surprised at how beautiful your fish are :heart This is a good article. I was looking up the dslr cameras on best buys website and they are kinda out of my price range where would you recommend getting them at?

Look on Amazon and eBay, Sherry.

You might want to check out the Nikon D3100. It should be at a very good price right now. :)

Can you set your camera to manual?

Hi Hidr,

Your camera can set at manual, and I would definitely try it. Here's the instruction manual

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0/0300005730/01/pssx40hs-cug-c-en-web.pdf

On page 104, there are instructions on how to change the shutter speed and the aperture value. Make sure to set it to 1/125 and f/5.6, respectively.

I am going to see if I can do this on my point and shoot as well! :)

I hope this helps.
