Try to use a higher aperture as possible eg. F2.8 or F1.8 if possible. And you will require to open up ur shutter speed.

Err from what I know, there isn't much setting you can play around with IXUS, it seem like a point and shoot camera to me.
As you can't change the aperture or shutter speed, to take fast moving object you just might need to move at the same speed with the object ;)
for night scenes, Sun rise/set, maybe switching it to landscape mode (the logo with mountain).
Not sure if this help :dunno:

yup, just use the landscape mode for night scenes. you will need a tripod for that too, unless u place the camera on a steady object. Use the self-timer to trigger off the shutter so that u will not move the camera.

haha, you obviously didnt rtfm... :devil: no offence.. :bsmilie: :bsmilie: the ixus 330 CAN set long shuttle speed, up to 15seconds... you must enable the night scene mode within the menu while in manual shooting mode... then press the WB button to bring out the 1st menu... use your up/down scroll to set the exposure time ... good luck... ;)

btw, wat situation would demand the use of the landscape mode? from what i know, it's used to shoot farway objects... but how far away should the object be before the landscape mode needs to be used?
