Make sure the release button is being pressed, not punched. If you are punching the button you will be shaking the camera making the pictures blurry even if they are focused. The shutter speed should be at least 1/60th of a second, so f the room is dark and you are not using flash this will also make a similar problem. Take it to a camera store for diagnosis
Both of these problems are caused by underexposure. There are several causes for this. If you are set in AUTO MODE check the shutter speed and lens opening in the view finder. If the speed is less than 100 and the shutter is less than 5 and you are not using flash. You will probably get blured and dark pictures.
Practice shooting with your settings outside in sunlight , inside with lamplight, inside with flash and all of the above with motion. Check the exposure after each shot and make adjustments. In a short time you will get very good at setting your camera.
Most probably you have incorrectly set your camera to a Camera Record mode other than Auto.
If there is not enough light and you are trying to photograph the scene without flash, (eg. by setting your camera mode to a mode that is programmed not to use flash) then the camera has to compensate for the missing light by keeping its shutter open for a longer period of time so as enough light comes into its sensor.
If your hand shakes during that time, you get blurry images.
Check your camera settings. The Twilight scene mode gives you slower shutter speeds to capture dark,
night scenes, but you need to stabilize the camera on a tripod or something, depending on the level of light of the scene you want to photograph. The Twilight Portrait, on the other hand, is the same as Twilight with the addition of
flash is used to illuminate a person or foreground subject as well as capturing a night
background. This mode also keeps a long shutter time for capturing the night background.
For taking pictures of people, I would suggest you use Auto or Portrait mode where the camera will automatically use fast shutter speeds and flash (if dark).
You're both right. The pictures are blurry because the shutter speed is too slow, but it's too slow because there isn't enough light for it to be faster.
Set the ISO to 800
Set the camera at shutter priority mode, and enter 1/160 for wide angle to mid-zoom, and 1/400 for full zoom.
If the pictures come out too dark ( and you're too far to use the flash ), you can always brighten them on the computer. But if they're blurry, you can't really fix that.
