Try keeping your hands tucked into your body as support for the camera.

Usual cause is shakey hands, are you holding away from you at arms length, this is a common thing with compact cameras, so you can see through LCD, this makes it very unstable when pressing the shutter, arms judder and then the picture is spoilt.

Have thought of buying a monopod they are very compact and will give you that extra stability when taking shots

Hi there I just bought a Polaroid two instant print camera but the quality of pics is really poor very washed out and even a bit blurry do I need to set it up?


set your pixel ratio to the largest setting, this means less pictures per memory, but higher picture quality. Also if possible adjust your iso to the highest setting, as well as the shutter speed, having both of these settings set to the highest point will require more light for picture taking, however will result in the highest quality image.

MY camera won't take outdoor photo's


Sorry, it sounds like your shutter is jammed open, giving very overexpsoed photos. You could try menu / reset but i doubt it will help :(

My pictures are coming out blurry, after a year of good quality.


Check that the lens and other elements on the front of the camera are free from dust and grime.  The focus mechanism is not functioning properly and may need to be serviced.

Re: Canon powershot A710is When taking a photo with flash it seems to stabilise well, but withou tthe flash - my pictures are ending up very blurry. I am not sure if I have messed up the setting some how,...


I use a Canon 640 and had the same issue several months ago......except the 640 does not have stabilization. In trying to remember the cause I finally discovered I can not absolutely pin it down.......but I am pretty sure that I initially resolved a flash/no flash picture issue by simply resetting the programmable feature......in doing this I discovered that I may have not been using the "auto" setting. As long as I use auto and turn off the flash manually I get great quality. I think your blurry issue is the result of setting/s other than stabilization, which you get auomatically in the "auto" setting. I have found that with the exception of shots which require a tripod, for various reasons,that it is easier and faster just to go to "auto" and the manually set the few things you may want to change....usually the flash and macro.

An aside..... have several cameras but my 640 produces, by far, the best quality (color and focus) of any......even out the window at 70 mph.

If none of the above work I think one quick exercise would be next.....using either a tripod or just a flat surface, take pics just as you have described except use a two second delay in order to make sure that you are not influencing the results

Blurry pictures from Vivitar Camera


possibly go to the menu, and go to quality, if it isnt set on fine, then change it,or, set your scene on auto, so if the pic is fast moving, it can adjust to take clearer pics. otherwise i am of no help.

Blurry pics Samsung S860


Try it with DIS function on.
You take a shot, in average daylight conditions in 11 modes, See which settings give good pictures and use those settings.
Probably the best setting for the digital camera is AUTO(green),for a novice

My camera is blurry..and it takes blurry pictures..How can i fix this?


Gently clean the lens or get it cleaned at a camera store. I suspect fingerprints on the glass. If this isn't it, the camera's infrared sensor may be malfuntioning or dirty, or the lens assembly is not functioning properly (warranty).

I've heard that the P52 can give blurry pics, however I don't quite know how to fix that. You may be able to do something with a software program (ie Photoshop). Since I can't help I'll bump you up so someone who can help might see this! Good luck!
