Question about Canon Cameras
Are you using the viewfinder or the LCD? The viewfinder is primarily for framing the shot on these P&S cameras that Canon makes, the LCD will show proper focus. It would be more beneficial if you could state which model because a SLR will not be the same as a P&S which will not be the same as a bridge camera.
If for example you were using manual focus on a DSLR or bridge camera and you had the diopter adjustment on the viewfinder set incorrectly it too might cause the problem.

I'm not sure what camera you are using. But I believe you are taking pictures like the old Kodak Instamatic which you just literally point and shoot. Even then people took blurred pictures. There are 2 reasons I can guess. First is you are pressing the shutter button too fast. When you press the shutter, it should be like squeezing the trigger of a gun. You SQUEEZE slowly. Not press the button and let go. After you hear the camera has done all the sound it wants to make that means you picture is being recorded. And hopefully it will be clear. If it still isn't then it means your camera take a little bit longer to focus on the subject. That's what happened to my wife. She thinks she can point and shoot and that's it. You need to camera a few seconds to focus. I know the Casio's have a little beeping sound that tells you it has focused and is ready to shoot. My Konica Minolta does the same but I see a box on the screen (I took the sound out). You need to listen for that tone that tells you you camera has focused on a spot and is ready to shoot. In order for the camera to do this you need to press the shutter only half way. When you hear the tone then slowly press all the way and don't move till all the clicks are done. That's usually 0.5-1.5seconds only. Hope this helps.
