Hi
Blurry pictures are caused usually by one of two things:
1. Camera not focused correctly (ie set to wrong distance)
2. Camera shake (due to not holding the camera steady or too long a shutter speed)
Camera shake is very common and usually occurs when the light is low and/or you zoom in on a subject.

The cure is to make sure the lens is focused (this may be automatic but you should get some indication such as a green light?) and keep the camera steady by perhaps using a wall or lamppost or even a tripod. Having said all that in good daylight there should not be a problem holding the camera and if the flash is going off then you should certainly not be getting camera shake.
I am afrid I dont know the model to say how to turn the flash off but hope this is useful anyhow.
Regards
Marti

I think you need to check your white balance and exposure settings - it sounds as if everything is massively over-exposed.

Be aware, jpg is an universal format, for pictures. It is not so all pictures have the same format and information. Your Polaroid can cope with a certain format of pictures. That is with the correct amount of pixels and he correct RGB settings, as your Polaroid camera produces.
It is not a computer. When you connect a printer to a computer, with the print program, the program can transform any picture size to any print size and also can work with RGB and sRGB, or even more challenges. I'm not even sure the Polaroid will accept pictures in the same format, if to a certain code is in the jpg.

Cannot locate Playback mode for Polaroid i1035 Didital Camera


It may have something to do with your camera running on auto, internal, or sd option for your memory storage.

When you get to your black screen, try pressing the "w" in your zoom to see if you have taken any pictures. You did find the playback mode...so congradulations.

Why do some of my pictures come out dark or with shadows?


Your Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does not have a flash. If pictures are coming out dark, it's because there wasn't enough light in the surroundings when the picture was taken. Remember, it's important to take photos in brightly lit surroundings. When taking pictures indoors, make sure that the room has bright lighting. For best results, take pictures during daylight hours with a combination of indoor and outdoor light, preferably near a window.

Beep


The Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera is programmed to shut off automatically after a few minutes if it is not being used. This helps to conserve battery power. When the camera shuts itself off, it will make a continual beeping sound. To use the camera after it has shut off, simply push the shutter button or self-timer button to take a picture. If you are not going to use your camera, turn the power switch to OFF. The camera will also beep in rapid sequence after you press the self-timer button. The camera will continue to beep in faster sequence until a picture is taken (approximately 10 seconds). A final long beep signals that a picture has been taken. NOTE: It is normal for the camera to beep while downloading photos to a computer.
