The FS3 uses Panasonic's Mega O.I.S optical image stabilization system. The system is on by default in Intelligent Auto mode, and user selectable in all other modes. The system's two modes (continuous stabilization and shot-only stabilization that kicks in when the shutter is half-pressed) are, in typical Panasonic fashion, unintuitively labeled "Mode 1" and "Mode 2." Some in-camera explanation – call them "Continuous" and "Single Shot" for instance – would probably eliminate some confusion on this front.

there are many reasons for blurry pictures: unsteady hand, you have selected to slow a picture speed, there is not enough light in the room. make sure the camera is on auto and there is sufficient light. try taking your photos outside during the day to test the camera.

Why are my pics so blurry?

Because of the magnification any unsteadiness in your hands is multiplied. Try to brace your elbows or put the camera on something steady. About 1/2 second after you click the button is when you hear a little beep. That's the moment you ahve to hold the camera very still.

Also, I wear glasses with a strong correction, I get better pictures when I take them off to focus the binoculars.

The camera starts shaking even when the shutter is closed. What could be causing this

How does the camera shake,?
It might be your hands?

You may not be dedscrfibing this clearly enough to get a diagnosis. I am presuming that somehow the display is unsteady, but there would be no display if the lens was closed. Ifr you are lookingb through the viewfinder and experiencing a shake this would not be any mechanical problem within the camera it would be external and an unsteady hand, If you are viewing replays of pics and the display is unstable in this mode then i can accept that therte may be "shake" in the stability of the picture. Steady Shot cameras have a Gyro in them, if this becomes faulty it can cause instability to the handling of the camera. there i have covered the options. If the latter is true and your camera ( no brand or model mentioned) has the shakes then it must be returned to its manufacturer for repair

Shutter too slow and pics of people blurry. I have the camera on auto setting, push button half way down, focus, then all the way, take the pic. If the subject is moving AT ALL, the pic comes out blurry....

If your camera has a sport or action mode that would be your best option if your pics keep coming out blurry. These modes are made for action shots. Its worth a try!

Blurry pics

Try keeping your hands tucked into your body as support for the camera.

Usual cause is shakey hands, are you holding away from you at arms length, this is a common thing with compact cameras, so you can see through LCD, this makes it very unstable when pressing the shutter, arms judder and then the picture is spoilt.

Have thought of buying a monopod they are very compact and will give you that extra stability when taking shots

I have a Casio EX 260, not the EX-S600

Try resetting camera. If that doesn't work more than likely there is a lens error. 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.

Blurred pics / Shutter speed on Fuji A470

The hand symbol is alerting you that the camera will have to use a slow shutter speed to get enough light into the camera. Try pointing the camera at something bright, and the hand will not show. Therefore, if the hand is on, then you probably need to use the flash.

Camera taking blurry pictures

I'm having the same problem with my Panasonic Lumix camera. A year of perfectly clear photos, and now, even after a cleaning, is taking consistently blurry photos. I'm a photographer. I know about half-depressed shutters, focusing on objects, etc. What is wrong with my camera?!?
