Bought a new Canon Power Shot. Tried some pics in my basement in low light.

Hmm. It seems to be making the rockets look upside down, and there's something that looks like a beer bottle, but has a "Budweiser" label on it, instead of real beer.

You may need to adjust the settings.

Or maybe he had consumed that beer bottle before he took the pictures.

Nice pics!

I also have a few hanging upside down--in order to make space in the rocket room I ended up hanging most of the gliders on wires near the celing.

They were just gathering up in a box so I just got them off the floor.
The big beer bottle flies great on a "H" motors.
And the answer is yes:cheers:

Check out this web site. Rockwell reviews cameras and gives good advice.

https://www.kenrockwell.com/index.htm

I have a Nikon DSLR that I use when I need a fast shutter and an older Canon Powershot for taking pictures of things that don't move very fast. There are two aspects to shutter speed, how short the exposure is and how quickly the shutter snaps after you push the button. That last one is what usually gets you on a compact camera. You push the button, the camera clicks and whirrs a couple of times setting exposure, focus, etc., and then the shutter trips just in time to get a great picture of smoke on the pad. The DSLR takes the picture when you press the button. Now if only I could tune up my reflexes.
