I have a hard time getting them as well, and my camera is a 8.0 megapixel too. You just get lucky I guess. I think you can increase the speed of the shutter so that it takes pictures faster....

My Tanks:
(1) 125 Gallon Saltwater FOWLR
(1) 55 Gallon Community
(2) 29 Gallons -Livebearers - Saltwater (Live rock)
(2) 10 Gallons -Dwarf Puffers
(1) 2 Gallon- Baby tank
(3) 1 Gallons- Baby Livebearers

Is that scallop eating a fish?

I have a Nikon D60 DSLR with which I use a variety of settings and lenses to capture my subjects. Settings I prefer for aquarium photos include No Flash, Portrait, Action, Manual, Shutter Priority, and Apeture Priority. I use a 4 gig card and the continuous shutter so I can take multiple sucessive shots. Then I go through the pics to and delete those that aren't up to snuff. For something like your camera which I'm assuming is a standard Digital static lense, presets on your camera should include the No Flash (make sure you have very good lighting in and around the tank), Portrait (look for an icon of a little child), and Action (icon of someone running) and these could get the results you're looking for.

If you view my aquarium log you'll see some of the tougher shots I managed -- shot of our tetra tank, guppies (tough little things to photgraph!), and our shrimp. I grew up with cameras in my face and hands - Dad was ships photographer in the Navy so photography is sort of second nature to me I guess.....



Don't follow my footsteps....I run into walls!
