for the first 2 pics, did you turn the flash on or auto?. Maybe you can try turning the flash off so that the shutter goes to the full 0.5 secs. Try it and see whether the pics turn out better. Like the cat pic, so cute.

Hee hee... actually I feel that its a little over exposed... if the empasis is on the sky. If its trying to portaray a gloomy road... a lower perspective and a different angle will be better.

another way to 'off flash' is to cover the flash with a piece of tissue or your fingers, maybe.

anyway, from what i have learnt from this forum is that those shots which requires more light(longer exposure period) i.e night shots will definately requires a tripod to prevent from handshake causing picture blurness.

the cat pic can be taken at faster shutter speed if the light source is bright enough or you are using flash.

correct me if im wrong. ;)
(thanks to goondoo, flare, tweek for their kind guidance!)

Thot you using Fuji2600? That is not a disposable camera.

There is a button which toggles the flash modes e.g. red eye, flash on, flash auto, flash off. Set to flash off. Once flash is off, the camera will automatically set the shutter to the maximum 0.5 sec. Thats the best you can do in controlling the exposure.

I should add that turning off the flash will set shutter to 1/2s only when there is not enough light for anything faster than 1/2s. In daylight, the camera will take at the appropriate exposure. Only when taking nightscenes for example, that the shutter will be set to 1/2s. ;)

Hee, actually the top two quite nice, I like lah... hahahha.. maybe i'm weird... Ok, if you want to catch the sky and want the rest like a silhouette, try to set exposure compensation at -1 to -2... Right now, the sky is a little over exposed while the buildings are under.

BTW, covering the flash will not work.. it'll results in under exposed images... this is because the camera is using a shorter exposure than require and hoping that the flash will light up the scene, if the flash don't it'll be under. The first cat shot is ok... The cat is fine, but the grass seems a little blue... maybe its in the evening and the flash didn't manage to spread the light nicely. The second cat seems a little over... maybe because you are too close to the cat... hee hee... It'll not be advicable to use a tripod and long/slow shutter for the cat... The cat will move and if its in the evening, that could be quite bad with shutter speed of maybe 1/2 or 1 second, the flash would be required...

But then for other night shots, like scenery and stuff, tripod and long shutter will be better... there should be away to switch off the flash.... hmmm...

Hmmm yah yah....your camera should have 4 flash modes, Auto, red-eye reduction, Forced and Off... Just switch to the off mode and the flash will not fire.

BTW, Forced means the flash will always fire.
