    I have a Olympus c-7000 and I can't figure out on taking night pics. Its always blurry like the shutter speed is to slow. So I speed it up and then its way dark. If I am taking pics of a large area from far away, flash or no flash?
    Any input or advise?

    No flash. Get a tripod. If it's a night scene, such as like a downtown skyline shot, use an 8-15 second exposure. More or less depending on the effect you are trying to achieve.

    You cannot do handheld shots at less than 1/60 of a second shutter speeds.

    When you crank down your shutter speed and it reads 8", then that means it is set at an 8 second exposure.
