DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

09/02/04: Fuzzy Night pictures

Tech Support Pits:
From Christy=== Dear Webby Whenever I take pictures at night, for example of the moon between trees, the pictures turn out fuzzy. What can I do to fix that? Thanks Christy Dear Christy At night the cameras use longer exposure times. It is virtually impossible to hold the camera steady enough so that you don't get fuzzy pictures, especially if you use zoom. You will need to use a tripod or rest the camera on a little sand bag. An old, soft, and no longer shiny leather purse, filled with sand or salt or sugar makes a very good tripod substitute. So does a cut off piece of sleeve from an old coat. The little pillow should be about hand size or bigger, and thick enough so that you can wiggle the camera into the right position. If your camera has a remote control, use that for night shots. If you don't have a wireless remote control, then your camera probably has a connection for a "Bulb" or other manual remote control. You can get those at any camera store or order them on-line quite cheaply. Have FUN! DearWebby
