This is not a problem with the camera's resolution.

Blurring can be caused by moving the camera during a shot, by poor focus, or by muck on the lens surface. Moving the camera is the most common.

Poor focus shouldn't happen with an autofocus digital camera, unless you are trying to take distance shots with the camera in macro mode. The lens would have to have grease or goo on it to affect focus, not just dust. You can check these things easily.

Try putting the camera on a tripod and see if shots taken that way are still blurred. If that fixes the problem, then you are not holding the camera still enough when shooting. Remember that digital cameras often have a slight delay between pressing the button and the picture being snapped, so train yourself to hold the camera still even after you press the shutter.

I m getting blurred images ,pics on my hp pavilion dv 2000 laptop when surfing internet like orkut profiles etc


Unless you're running at the display's native resolution (check the box or product literature, for your laptop probably 1280x800) you will have some blurring on photographs and other parts of the display. You will need to set your resolution to 1280x800 to see crisp photos.
To change the resolution in Vista: 1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.

I called them today. They were great on the phone. They emailed me a UPS shipping label and told me that there will be about a ten-day turn around to fix it and send it back.

PC web cam not funcitoning properly


Well, that could be because of the cam itself. It is a cheap cam. If you want better quality you will have to buy a little more expensive cam with atleast 1 MegaPixels resolution. The one you currently have has about 600 000 Pixels. Simply put, you will have to buy a cam with higher resolution for better quality.

Display blurred and cam showing low batt


Bad luck is that the CCD sensor in your camera has stopped working properly and needs replacing. You are lucky though because Canon repairs this fault on S1 - IS free of charge so phone them and inquire.
