The exposure is simply too long.

You can:

1: Use a tripod (or a table, and use the timer).

2: Try using the high-speed sequence mode, and hold your hand as steady as you can, then pick out the sharpest photo and delete the others.

3: Use a camera with Anti-shake.

4: Use a camera with a faster lens.

5: Use slow sync flash (night time mode) and see if you like that effect better.

6: Just take hundreds of photos and hope one turns out okay.

7: Realize that even if photos are not sharp, they can still be beautiful (your photo is actually very nice. Fantastic color).

Slow Sync, hand held:

Okay, I'll see what I can do. I'm using a Canon PowerShot S200. (due for replacement soon anyway). Thanks.

Edit: Okay, it looks like it has an exposure compensation range of 2EV to +2EV in 1/3EV. I'll try that.

Motion blur.

There is simply not enough light

. You can try to use a tripod, but tripod only prevent the shakes coming from the photographer, but It will not freeze moving people or objects.

. you can use the flash, but the background will be dark, because the difference of lighting between the guy and the background will be too high

. you have to buy a new camera, and shot at 1600 or 3200 iso with a fast lens, like 1,4. Fuji is planning to introduce the first compact camera who work at 1600 iso. Otherwise low light condition pictures recquieres reflex cameras like the 350 D.

This is my girlfriend on the last (and biggest by far) absail during our canyoning session in Nepal, 2003. I'd already completed it when i took the picture.

Taken on the same Sony Cybershot DSC-F77 as my earlier photo from New York, so i couldn't zoom (the zoom on the camera is virtually useless).

One day i'll get a real camera

All I remember is backpacking with my dad, we used to throw rocks at the marmots (near them, actually, just to scare them away from the food) while sitting around a lake during lunch break.

Those were nice days.
post #134 of 264
Cool thread. That pic of the bike with the icicles was excellent.

I wasn't aware that marmots were found in Europe. Definitely one of the coolest animals out there. I think I'd be a marmot if I were an animal, although if I had more ambition I might go for being a wolverine. Marmots have it good though, lounging around in scenic areas, little fear of humans, they like to whistle at passersby, belligerent on occasion as need be.

I try to take a pic or two on occasion, I'll see if I can come up with one or two when I get home.

I don't know, it's strictly forbidden to hunt marmotte in the national park of the Vanoise.
I doubt that marmotte provencale exist, because provence is not the right place for marmottes. In France you only found them in mountains : Alps, and Pyrenees (wrong english spelling).
Perhaps a ragout of marmottes existed in the past. Who knows ?

If you are interested by weird alps food, there was the famous liquor called viperine. You catch a viper, you put it alive in alcohool, where she become drunk before dying. I am lucky : nobody ask me to drink this terrible stuff

Well for the fear of human it depends of marmots. There is marmottes who will fly in panic if they see you at less than 100 meters, some others are domesticated and will support you at 15 to 20 meters ( I shot this ones). In some places, they can eat in your hand.

Marmots hate dogs, and for a marmot eagles and dogs are the worst annoyings animals on earth. Marmottes are one of the most popular animals of the alps. I wasn't aware that they existed in the US, i used to think that just their cousins existed (hound dogs)

This is my first time posting in this threads. I have some marmot pictures, but I think I'll change the subject. This picture was taken today by my brother and myself:

What a nerd! (Me too. Awesome pic. Was it hard to line everything up correctly? I know System Preferences doesn't always put a desktop pic exactly where you want it)
post #146 of 264
It was fairly easy for that okay quality. The camera was on a tripod (albeit, not a good one). I zoomed in to fill the screen, then my brother put the screen down, I took a picture, we put it on the computer, and set it as the desktop. Our camera takes photos in 3x2 aspect ratio, so it seems to fit pretty well on the screen. Leaving the camera in the same spot, I zoomed out and took the picture again. There are lots more on Flickr.

Thank you for your kindness Powerdoc

I too have a Canon 20D like you and I love the camera. The pictures above were taken with it. That camera very very very low noise as you can see in the low lighting situations.

Lovely valley, TJ. If not for the bicycles, you could easily imagine Frodo and the gang coming up around the corner.

The bikes are an important memory for me though- some friends and I biked 32 miles that day (which is a lot for me).

But yeah- if you were just looking at it for photography's sake, the bikes could go.

For photography's sake, the bikes add character.
