Question

Uploading photos from other sources to camera SDHC card and viewing with camera

Is it possible to upload .jpg photos created elsewhere (cell phones, etc.) to the SDHC card in the camera so that they can be displayed by the camera on its LCD screen? Attempts to copy such photos to the various folders on the camera SDHC card result in either inability to access them or produce an error message.

No, images taken with another camera other than Nikon or uploaded to the memory card can’t be displayed. That may corrupt your memory card.

I don't own the camera and haven't tried it but my guess is that this is probably down to the shutter speed and ISO, that you are shooting at. If you are shooting in low light situations or have your camera scene mode set to something with a slower shutter speed (night time, etc) then you will have blurry photo, as the camera will try to get the ideal amount of light to get the photo. As you don't seem to be having this problem with your Canon, I doubt it is down to your movement. I would play with the settings and see what difference they make, try a slightly faster scene mode to shoot with and see if this improves the photo (this might effect the amount of light in the photo though, so be careful doing this).

Most of the time the shooting delay is caused by focusing. Press the button half way down (and hold it in) and let the camera pre-focus; when the subject is perfect press the button the rest of the way to shoot. With a bit of practice it is easy to get the perfect photo.
