    Hows the lighting condition? Maybe your shutter speed was below the hand holding limit?

    its always the lighting... Lighting is everything. DOgs dun really stay still, but if its under a good dose of sunlight, it should be no problem.

    might be lighting as its held indoor at the Expo

    Then in this case shoot using Aperture piority mode or Shutter mode is more appropriate pardon my ignorance as i'm really a newbie in photography not much knowledge about technical aspect

    depends on the camera u have...

    if you using something with a external flash, den mount on a omnibounce, den use red eye reduction, den shoot with shutter priority... since u wan clear pics, u should set to fast shutter. but fast shutter = darker pics, so u have to use flash. den direct flash will get very washed out pics or over exposed front... den when u bounce from an expo ceiling... i think unless the flash really powerful... if not will not be able to bounce back... so using omnibounce or bounce card is better. den red eye reduction to prevent seeing this spot in the dog's eye...

    I own a fuji s602z.

    Wah useful info. Tks bro Del_CtrlnoAlt so flash is very important ?
    Initially i think the built in flash is enough for my usage but after ur explaination, then realise the need for a exteranl flash liao

    no problem... actually at 1st i thought external flash like useless 1, den use the built in flash is good enough, until learning bouncing, den i understand the proper use of the flash.

    You could try shouting "SIT" before taking a pic of them. Well, "SIT" is the international language for dogs...
