So... there's poor focus, and there's shutter speed.

If the light is very low, the shutter has to stay open for longer to allow enough light in to make a bright picture. Suffice to say, if you move around while the shutter is recording, it will record you moving around, and it will look blurred. That covers the concert you went to. Just use the flash. The camera will know it can use a very fast shutter speed if the flash is going to go off.

As for the person in the background thing... if they are the only blurry thing, then it's the same as above. If not, try this:
Check your camera setup menu... you should have focus options. Most toy cameras have an auto-focus that can focus on multiple points in the shot, or one point only, or even by face recognition these days! Try using a "spot focus", one focus point in the dead-centre of the shot.

On this setting, it shouldn't matter what is going on around your subject, the focus spot will be in the centre, where you are aiming it. =-]

What settings do i use on the Nikon coolpix l320 in bright sunlight


That depends on your subject and what you want your photo to say to the viewer. If you're taking a photo of a scenic vista, you'd probably want a deep depth of field to get everything in the scene in focus. If you're taking a photo of a person, you'd probably want a shallow depth of field so the person is in focus but the background is blurred. If you're taking a photo of a sporting event, you'd probably want a fast shutter speed to freeze the action.

Only YOU can decide the best setting for YOUR photos. That's why the camera offers so many settings, instead of a single "Best" setting for all photos.

How do you take a picture of something moving with olmpus sp 800 with out being blared


Move the camera with the subject and snap the picture. You can set the the speed and the aperture to accommodate the problem. You can also set the focus to the center of the view finder and isolate the subject that way. Mind you if you do what I have described the background will be un-focus. This is a great affect of isolating the subject while in motion. Good Luck!

My fuzzy photos are hard to avoid. How do I take a clear picture?


There are three main reasons photos don't come out clear.
The first is focus. If your photo has something in the near foreground and something in the distant background, you may not get both in focus. This is not as much of a problem with compact point&shoot cameras simply because their field of focus is so deep.
The second cause is subject motion. If you take a photo of a moving object, that object may blur. This is the case if moving objects blur but still objects do not.
The third and main cause is camera motion. If you suspect this, try placing the camera on a table or other stable surface, use the self-timer, and take a photo. Compare this photo with one you take holding the camera.

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary...


I have the same problem with the same camera. I believe the problem can be solved by turning the knob to MOVIE mode, then push the menu button. When the menu screen pops up. Go to the "camera" tab. It should be the first tab to your far left.

Once you are at this tab, scroll to the very first option which should be the AF FRAME option (Auto Focus Frame). Select "CENTER" for the Auto Focus and do not select "face detect." I think when it is in face detect mode it is sometimes searching for the persons face. If you just leave it in CENTER mode, then it just fixes itself in the center. This is what I am going to try. I think it should work.

Hope that helps.
Peace

Bakground of the photo is a bit blurry


this is, in most cases, a desired effect (bokeh) which is used to "detach" the subject from the background avoiding the viewer of the picture to be distracted by the background. This technique is widely used in portraits. This effect effect will be more pronounced when the lens is wide open (in your case it should be f/3.5 if I remember well...). To practice you may try the following: set you camera to "A" mode and take one picture of something (it should not be a landscape) using the smallest aperture after this take the same pic using the biggest aperture. With the lower f number you should get a blurry background and with the biggest the backgroud should be in focus!

Focus


The camera uses a precise auto focus mechanism, but under the conditions and with the subjects described below the auto focus function may not work well. Subjects moving at high speed Very shiny subjects such as a mirror or car body Extremely low contrast subjects (such as subjects dressed in the same color as the background, etc.) When there are objects in front of or behind the subject (such as an animal in a cage or a person in front of a tree) Subjects with little reflection, such as hair or fur Subjects with no solidity, such as smoke or flames Subjects viewed through glass In addition, the focus is set on the center of the frame, so if the subject is not at the center (when shooting two people standing side by side, for example), the focus is adjusted on the background and the desired subject (the two people) may be out of focus. In such cases, do the following: Point the camera so that one of the persons is at the center of the viewfinder. Half-press the shutter button. (The focus is locked on the person.) Holding the shutter button in the half-pressed position, reposition the camera to achieve the desired composition. Take the photo. If the focus cannot be adjusted, it is locked to infinity (1.5 meters when using the flash).

Exposure control options


The following exposure options are available: P (Program auto), A (Aperture priority), S (Shutter priority), and M (Manual). There are four scene programs modes available in which the camera will choose the optimal settings for the picture: Landscape: Suitable for taking photos of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. Both the foreground and the background are in focus. Since blues and greens are reproduced vividly in this mode, the landscape mode is excellent for shooting natural scenery. Portrait: Suitable for shooting a portrait-style image of a person. This mode features an in-focus subject against a blurred background. Sports: Suitable for capturing fast-moving action such as sports scene or moving vehicles without blurring. Night scene: Suitable for taking night scene photos with a slower shutter speed.
