Question about Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera
Camera is a few months old. 25 percent of pictures always turn out blurred. This occurs whether or not flash is on but more so when it is off. problem with talking pictures with flash on is over illuminates forground objects. Is this a manufacturers defect in having too slow a shutter or what? I use this camera in wet canyons and although the convience of being able to get it wet is great, I am tired of so many bad pictures. Have used other digital cameras in same environment and no problems. At least until I got them wet.......
I also experienced similar problems with out of focus images from my Stylus 770 until I downloaded and read the complete (84 page) version of the manual from the Olympus website (I do not recall receiving other than the basic manual with the camera). I was frustrated because I had rarely experienced such problems with a Canon IXUS 400.
The first issue was that I had not realised the correct use of the P/Auto, "hand symbol" = digital stabilisation (for when a tripod is unavailable or impractical, and SCN (toggled with the "camera icon" button). In the latter instance I had thought that the camera remained on an SCN setting regardless, yet I often pressed the "camera icon" button hence was no longer using SCN. I should have given more attenion to the display window icons. Another issue is use of the focus lock green lamp top RH cnr, making sure it is steady and no longer flashing before taking a shot, and thirdly selection of iESP or spot that determines the way in which brightness of the subject is measured. Other features include the LED illuminator that can be turned on for macro subjects.
These topics are covered, albeit somewhat cryptically at times, on pages 11-13. It seems that much about this camera is not quite as intuitive as with other brands, but that is only my opinion.
I am sure I will discover more features of relevance when I have time to read and digest the information more thoroughy.
Hope that this information is of some assistance to others.

Blurry no flash indicated photos in low light condition therefore slow exposure leading to camera shake remedy - use a tripod
Burn out with flash in foreground is not uncommon if you are focusing to distant object - the flash is calculating for max throw..
