Before somebody else says something, I should say that 1/30 is actually a fairly slow shutter speed. In better lighting, you'd probably want more like 1/60 or higher. For a really fast-paced outdoor sport, you'd want something even higher. (Also, I'm still playing with these settings myself. I'm no expert.)

    For lower light scenarios, 1/30 is very good as it allows more existing light to be recorded whether you are shooting digital or film. Also, with the longer shutter speed it can allow for the flash to be more effective. If your camera has a hot shoe you may want to consider an accessory flash. There are many good quality inexpensive ones made by Vivitar, Minolta and many other manufacturers.
