I really hate using the camera's built in flash (usually only goes off in medium/low light conditions); to me it really ruins the photos. I know how to use the "M" manual and "AV" setting on the camera really well to take product photo in our studio with or w/out the alien bee's however when I need to grab the camera to take quick photo the photos look horrible. SOO BLURRY! If i turn the camera on any normal point and shoot mode that uses flash they come out fine but look like crap due to the flash. If I use the "No Flash" point and shoot mode I also have a lot of blurry results. Anyone know what settings on manual modes I can use to get better results? As far as what I understand the camera needs to open the shutter for a longer period of time to allow more light to pass when not using flash. Thus giving you the "As you see it in person" photo. When it does this the slightest movements will cause the photo to be blurry. What I don't understand is when I adjust the "AV" aperture negative or positive it will give me darker or brighter photos. Not sure why but figure maybe I can use a faster shutter speed with more "AV" to get the results I want. I dunno I'm all confused.
