If you have it on auto the you have no settings. If you have it on manual then you can change the white balance to correct for the colors, also try increasing the ISO, that will give you a quicker shutter and help cut down on bury shots

Most pictures that I take with my Canon powershot SD 1200is, come out blurry.


Try pressing the shutter button halfway before you take your picture. This opens the lens for exposure and also triggers autofocus based on your camera settings. Once you do that and aim your camera properly, you can press the button all the way to take a photo.

Out of focus shot on Auto setting


Do you have it inn "macro" mode? See the little flower/mountain button on the back of your camera. Press it once until the mountain icon shows on the screen. This is for normal "distant" photos. Or press it once more until the little flower icon reappears. This is for extreme close-ups, like taking pictures of flowers. This sounds like what you probably had it in.

But really, your little camera can do so much more. Recommend that you take a look at this. It's an 8 mb download, but you should read it:

Canon sd 750


Hi

It means that there is not enough light and your camera needs to be supported due to the long length of time the aperture needs to be open to get a decent picture.

Set your flash to 'Automatic' and it will flash in these low light conditions and you won't get blurry photos.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Blurry action shots


try using the manual setting. Put the exposure to the highest setting, which would probably be about 1/1000 of a second. If you're shooting in not so good light 1/200 is good also.

Player, could you be more specific on the symptoms. Does the image also look blurry on the LCD. Any weird colors? And please reconfirm that you have a Canon SD200 (SD Card) and not an S200 (Compact Flash Card).

Canon sd 550 (and sd 200) shutter speed


If you check out a review site such as www.steves digi cams. com or even the Canon site to check out the spec of the camera to discover what shutter speeds are available. When shooting fast moving subjects try panning the camera on the object as you press the release this will[to a degree] keep the primary image sharp[ish] whilst blurring the background
