The hand icon means you don't have enough light to hand-hold a shot with the settings you are using. You need to either:

1) Use the flash
2) Use a tripod

    The hand icon isn't an "error" message. It is telling you that you don't have enough light to get a non-blurry photo if you shoot in the current mode - without flash and without using a tripod. Your camera can detect that your hand is vibrating, and that the vibrations can't be offset by the IS (image stabilization) in the camera so it warns you with the icon.

    The solutions are:

    1) More light. Either use flash or shoot the subject in better lighting (take the subject outside, or shoot during the day instead of at night).

    2) Use a tripod.

    There are no other solutions with this camera. Small pocket cameras need a certain amount of light to take hand-held photos without blurring.

When trying to take a pic, a red camera symbol with two curve at both sides at the bottom of the camera symbol appears...this comes up in bottom left hand corner. Please help. Thank you, Robin


Sounds like the warning of low shutter speed end therefore the tanger to get "hanshake" blur captured. Use flash if possible or highter ISO setting or steady hands ;)

My pictures are showing up really white on my screen but it looks fine on the screen before I take it. It's a Sony Cybershot SD750


Hi,

You may want to check the exposure setting. It must have been set too high. Set the exposure setting to the middle. This will let your digicam capture pictures as what you see on the screen.

I hope this works for you. Kindly comment for further assistance. Good Luck!

Blurring pictures


I had the same problem. Somehow my flash was set on "SL - Keep subjects and distant backgrounds bright." When I changed the flash to "Auto", it seemed to get rid of the blurry pictures.

DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?


I don't own a T7,but I have the P150 and S40. All these small Sony digicams have something in common;Sony uses 1/40 as the default flash shutter speed in low light conditions,while other makers use 1/60.You are more likely to get a blurry picture compared to other digicams you have previously used,unless you hold the camera steady (two hands). The other thing about these cameras is their lack of weight, coming in at a mere 134 g/4.7 oz. Light weight means you must hold the camera steady (two hands) or risk camera movement when you press the shutter. Again, the tendency with a small,light weight camera is to hold it with one hand while you take a picture,this leads to blurry pictures. The review for this camera is positive; a "Dave's Pick." - Just remember the flash range is only 5ft / 1.6m. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/T7/T7A.HTM
