I'm new to cameras. I'm wondering if anyone can help on this. I left my camera on overnight during downloading to the computer. Prior to this everything was working fine. I could take shots at night without flash and the shutter seemed to be working find. I let the battery run all the way down, recharged it and now when I press the shutter button it seems to take the shot very slowly. And when I look at the pic. it looks like it is staying open for too long and before this batter running down it was at the normal shutter speed. I had the camera set for continuous shooting so I could hold down the shutter and it would click continuously. Now I hold down the shutter button and it will click continuously but at a much slower speed.

I hope I am making myself clear. How did the settings get changed and how do I get them back?

Thanks for any help.
