    i've been wondering how to take shots of low light situations, like in a basement or garage, and have objects in movement not be as blurry as they are coming out.

    the guy on the left is pretty much blurred out and the right is fine for what i want. i was using a fujifilm s700 on its aperture setting with the shutter speed as fast as it can be. i dont know much, this is my first camera :noes: and i'm just wondering how to not have the picture underexposed but have less "blur." idk if that makes sense but

    Not stripping the EXIF data would have helped us, but since you're not using a DSLR adding a faster lens isn't an option so your choice is add more light or tell them to stand still and use a tripod. Your camera also goes up to 1600 ISO, so if you're OK with a grainy photo keep bumping it up until the shutter speed faster than 1/60 or so.

    sorry about the exif data, didnt even know i did that. i dont really want a grainy picture but i'll mess with the iso and try to find a middle ground. thank you both for the help.

    you need to use a flash...there is enough light for your eye to see things just fine but not enough for the camera to "see" the same thing. add light or speed up your shutter.
