Hey abbyr,
The most common cause of blurry images is called camera shake which is the slight movement of the camera caused by hand holding the camera during exposure. This cause can be solved by setting the camera to shutter priority and shooting with a faster shutter speed (1/60th of a second or faster). If you are using flash this is most likely not the problem since the shutter speed with flash is irrelevant since the duration of the flash determines the exposure. Another cause of blurry pictures is caused by not prefocusing on your subject prior to taking the image by holding the shutter button half way down so the camera can achieve proper focus before taking the picture. If none of this helps I would bring your camera to a local camera store and have an expert look at it and make sure you have it set up properly, and if you do I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

I am using the Rebel XT When I take a photo it looks clear in the viewfiinder, clear onthe LCD. however when I download to computer it is blurry. What am I doing wrong?


Without seeing an example it's hard to say. My guess is you either are not getting a proper focus, are you using auto focus or manual focus?
Or more likely you are experiencing camera shake, which is not holding the camera steady enough for the shutter speed (a rule of thumb is with your 55mm lens you need a shutter speed of at least 1/60th of a second). And you still need to try to hold your camera steady. If your not in a well lit area then your flash should prevent camera shake.
Hope this helps

My Rebel XT automatic sport mode photos are all blurry. I noticed that the shutter speed only reads around 13. There is also a pause indicating a slower shutter speed. Any suggestions?


There isn't enough light for that scene. 1/13th of a second is the fastest at that ISO (automatically set by camera in Basic Mode) and Aperture (auto set by camera too, in Basic Mode) that the camera can handle to provide a reasonably exposed image. Try using Tv on the Mode Dial, set a higher ISO (trade off is image noise) of around 800-1600 or even 3200 if available on your camera. Set shutter speed at 200-1000 (1/200th to 1/1000th of a second) and see if it freezes your subject. An external flashlight with hi-sync mode would help in this situation if the subject is not too far away.

My screen shows a blurry picture and it takes a blurry picture. it didnt used to. what is wrong? how do i fix it?


I have the exact same problem. When I was in NY last fall, suddenly my camera would only take blurry pictures. I hadn't changed any settings or anything. I can get halfway decent pictures in Auto mode, but any of the other settings only take blurry pictures. Apparently a lot of people have this problem, but no one knows how to solve it...

Trying to take pictures in low light conditions inside a theater.


when you use high ISO like 800-1600 it will create big novice on image, and when you using law ISO it will be dark for sure.
so the solution is switch cam to TV mode and put into very law shutter speed and use ISO 200-400,make sure you are connected to tripod or else you will not get fine results with law shutter speed. point is when you use law shutter speed camera will take more light to censor even with law ISO your images will be perfect.

Blurred football pictures


low light means the shutter stays open longer to capture the image.   Try changing exposure settings.
