My daughter received the camera for her birthday and used it on the night. However, towards the end of the evening she noticed that the screen image became blurry. Nothing we have tried via the trobleshooting guide has fixed the problem.
Hi I just experienced the same problem.Could NOT figure out what went wrong.The LCD screen image was blurred and as a result the pics I took were blurry:(
My husband then took over and simply cleaned off the front lens and POOF! It is back to good!Hope this helps!

The DSC-HX300 has 16 shooting modes, Anti-motion Blur, Back Light
Beach,,Fireworks, Food, Handheld Twilight, High Sensitivity, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Scene, Pet Portrait, Smooth Skin, Snow, Soft Focus, Sports.
>Use the Sports mode for action. Use the 'burst' option and you'll get several images and be able to select the best moment.
Wider angles (rather than extreme telephoto) allows for less blur if the camera is handheld (even teh improved Steady shot feature can only do just so much.) You may have better results optimizing for either ISO or shutter speed, but that will be lighting and speed-of-action dependant. You'll probably need to experiment a bit.
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.
Any number of things.
Low ISO. No Flash. No tripod. Too little light. No "shake" correction on the camera.
Depending on the goal of the photo, you may wish to use a tripod. Or use the flash. Or use a higher ISO (400+). Or any combination of these.
The easiest thing to do would be to make sure you use a flash. If you're trying to take a photo of something without the flash, you'll have to use a tripod. And even then, if something is moving fast through the frame, it'll likely be blurry. You simply need more light.
If you're new to digital cameras, I recommend the automatic settings. There's an "action" mode which usually has a man running as an icon. Or someone in motion. Some cameras even have settings for use at night or in darker rooms. Try those.
If you feel comfortable, you could manually bump the ISO up to 400 and try again. Your photo may be a little "grainer" and will probably look a bit ugly blown up much over a 5x7, but for 4x6 or anything online, it should be fine.
It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment:
1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while
pressing down the Lock Button located on the
2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and
locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you.
3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the
indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused.
Hope this helps.
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.
The shooting modes are as follows:
PROGRAM (P)/AUTO Modes. Used for general photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. In PROGRAM AUTO (P) the brightness (exposure compensation) can be adjusted.
Portrait. Suitable for taking a portrait-style photo of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings to produce natural skin tones.
Landscape + Portrait. Suitable for taking photos of both your subject and the landscape. This setting allows both the foreground subject and background landscape to be in focus.
Landscape. Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings to produce vivid blues and greens.
Night and Portrait. Suitable for taking photos of your subject in the evening or at night. Since the shutter speed is slow, it is advised that you use a tripod to support the camera in this mode to help avoid blur from camera shake.
Night Scene. Suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both foreground subjects and the background. It is advised that you use a tripod to support the camera in this mode to help avoid blur from camera shake.
Sports. Suitable for capturing fast moving action without blurring. Even a fast moving object will appear to be stationary.
Self Portrait. Enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens toward yourself and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting settings. The zoom is fixed in the wide position and cannot be changed.
Movie Mode. Enables you to take a QuickTime movie.
