    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Thanks again

    sorry, i assumed the a100 offered 1/3 stop increments. i understand keeping the shutter speed up, if you do that you have to adjust something else. remember that correct exposure is actually a mathematical equation.

    exposure = SS+Aperture+iso

    so if you reduce the time of light exposure, (ie: faster shutter speed), by half a stop, you then need to add half a stop of light by either increasing the volume of light, (aperture), or the sensitivity to light, (iso).

    once you get a little more used to it, if its quite dark you can also dial in +0.7EV as a little trick to improve the shot. this will bring out more shadow detail to better control noise and you may have to slightly kick back the highlights in PP.

    the absolute key though is to keep an eye on that light meter to begin with and/ or have a quick look at the histogram after you take the shot.

    Low shutter speeds don't necessarily produce motion blur. Assuming that the main light source for the subject is the flash, then the very short duration of it freezes the subject as though you were using a higher shutter speed. Backround objects not in range of the flash will, of course be motion blurred but this can enhance some images.
