    It is a Sony T70. It is more like a vibration. It doesn't happen all the time. I have taken the battery out and then put back in but it doesn't help. The next time I use it, it may be fine. It might be the Gyro. Is that somethine that can be fixed and how expensive would it be. Could it just need a new battery? It is a rechargable battery. How long do they usually last?

How does the camera shake,?
It might be your hands?

You may not be dedscrfibing this clearly enough to get a diagnosis. I am presuming that somehow the display is unsteady, but there would be no display if the lens was closed. Ifr you are lookingb through the viewfinder and experiencing a shake this would not be any mechanical problem within the camera it would be external and an unsteady hand, If you are viewing replays of pics and the display is unstable in this mode then i can accept that therte may be "shake" in the stability of the picture. Steady Shot cameras have a Gyro in them, if this becomes faulty it can cause instability to the handling of the camera. there i have covered the options. If the latter is true and your camera ( no brand or model mentioned) has the shakes then it must be returned to its manufacturer for repair

    well recharge batteries last about 2 years but Canon say 1 year as they want to slug you for a new battery more often.
    A battery should be fully charged before use and a low battery has been known to excite the gyro to a point where it shudders but usually nothing else works. Repair if a gyro is expensive and cam exceed the cost of replacement. Try a new battery first, if it perists after that I would be looking for a new camera. Always get a quote on repair, balance that gainst the time you have had the camera and the cost of getting another camera. The gyro cameres ( steady shot) are very good and indispenible to good photos. So don't necesarily try and get a new one without this feature. Good luck with your decision

My pictures are coming out blur


With digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower.

Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.

Two common causes, camera shake and having switched the camera to macro mode (extreme close up). Remember that you have to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is usually a short delay before the shutter fires.

Otherwise it is probably a fault requiring professional attention.

Photos are blurred.


Blurred images are caused by several reasons: motion due to camera shake, use of slow shutter speeds and failure of the camera to focus correctly.

Slow shutter speeds

When light is low, wide apertures and slow shutter speeds will be selected automatically by the camera. Most people can't take blur-free, hand-held shots when the shutter speed is under 1/60th of a second.

Cameras that have optical Image Stabilization help but even IS has its limits. Increase room lighting, increase the ISO setting or use a tripod, or use a combination of all three.

Blurred images or misfocus

If an image is blurred due to camera shake, the blur will appear throughout the entire image. If parts of an image are in focus, and others are not, you've misfocused.

Used to take great photos. Now lots are blurred.


Camera or hand shake are the most common cause of blurry photos, long exposure needs slower shutter speed, this is happened when your subject have inadequate light, and during this process, the camera sensor/shutter is open, causing the resulting photo to be blurry, because even a single movements of your camera or hand will cause the camera sensor to move, that causes a blurry capture. In order not to experience this, you have to be familiar with the setting of your camera, there are 3 important settings you have to understand: ISO Setting, Shutter Speed, and the Aperture Setting, they are related with each other. ISO Setting, is the sensitivity of your camera to light, meaning the higher the ISO, the more sensitive your camera in light, and the more sensitive, the faster your shutter speed. ISO scale from 100, 200, 400, and so on, depends on the cameras specs. Shutter speed, is the speed of the opening and closing of the camera's curtain( e.g. 1/30, 1/60 of a sec....and so on) and Aperture is the opening size of your lens focal points (the lower the f, the wider the opening: f1.4, f1.8, f2.0, f2.8, f3.5, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f22, f32
I hope this will be helpful.

What you are experiencing is a phenomenon called camera shake. Camera shake is caused when there isn't enough light for the camera to set a fast shutter speed. The camera's shutter opens and has to stay open for up to several seconds for enough light to hit the CCD to capture the image. Most people cannot hold a camera perfectly still for more then 1/60th of a second. In addition, when the telephoto feature is used on an Ultra Zoom camera, the field of view becomes smaller. Since a lens with a large focal length provides a small picture area, even slight imperceptible camera movement will cause a blurred picture. To reduce camera shake, try one or more of the following when applicable: Change to a fast shutter speed. Put the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod. Brace yourself against a tree or wall. Put the camera in sports mode. For situations with low light, raise the ISO. (Please note this will impede image quality)
