First, determine if you are moving while you press the shutter. This is more of a problem in zoom than at other focal lengths. Set the camera on a firm surface, zoom out, press the shutter button half-way to allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then press the rest of the way. Is the picture clear? If so, then you are the cause of the blur.

first of all i wanna ask one question, does your camera fell from your hand? usually this comes when your optical zoom motor is not responding to signals receiving from cameras processor. better service it with nearest service centre.

Blurry night photos in full zoom


Night photos and full zoom will cause your camera to choose a long shutter speed. You need to use a tripod for those pictures.

Every few photos is blurry


Try to push the shutter button half way down first so the camera will auto focus first. You should hear the lens move to focus, then press it the rest of the way down to take the picture. Your pictures should be much better quality if you do it this way.

Why do my Fun! Digital 320 pictures come out blurry?


Blurry images can be caused by any or all of the following: * Distance/Focus range -- the Fun! Digital 320 has a fixed focus range of 3 - 6 feet (1.8 meters) for brightly lit indoor photography, 3 ft. (1 meter) - infinity for outdoor photography. For best results, make sure that the camera is at least 3 feet away from the subject(s) when taking pictures. * Camera/Subject movement -- This is a common cause of blurriness, especially in low-light situations (see Lighting below). Hold the camera as steadily as possible while taking a photo, or use a tripod (a tripod mount is located on the bottom of the camera). Avoid subjects that are in motion. * Insufficient lighting -- the Fun! Digital 320 is designed for taking photos outdoors or in brightly lit environments. Inadequate lighting can exaggerate camera movement and contribute to blurred, "muddied," or uncrisp images. * Lens condition -- Check the lens periodically for smudges. If necessary, wipe the lens clean with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues. * Enlarging images using software -- otherwise normal digital images can appear to become blurry and/or blotchy when over-enlarged in software. To see an image's "true" appearance, use the software's Zoom In or Zoom Out feature to view it at 100%.

Blurry indoor photos C-750


Use A mode and set the biggest aperture you can set (f3.5 ?) this this will then allow the camera the fastest shutter for the availbe light. In low light conditions this still may onlt be 1/4 sec which is still to slow for hand holding a camera. Best you turn your flash on huh.

Blurry pictures


You're both right. The pictures are blurry because the shutter speed is too slow, but it's too slow because there isn't enough light for it to be faster. Try this: Set the ISO to 800 Set the camera at shutter priority mode, and enter 1/160 for wide angle to mid-zoom, and 1/400 for full zoom. If the pictures come out too dark ( and you're too far to use the flash ), you can always brighten them on the computer. But if they're blurry, you can't really fix that.
