calling all photography geeks...hypotheticals:
1. you've got a decent digital camera (something relatively basic, maybe a nikon coolpix 5700). you're in a bar, trying to take photos of a band. maybe you have a tripod; maybe you don't. how do you get the sharpest photos possible? do you simply give up on photos without at least a little bit of a blur?
2. you're in a room that appears to be well lit, but the light meter on your camera tells you it's not--it consistently suggests a shutter speed slower than 1/60. you do NOT have a tripod or any other solid surface on which to rest your camera. can you adjust the camera's settings so that sharp hand-held photos are possible?
