Question about Canon Digital Cameras
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
