Here you will find the tips for taking better photos with less camera shaking. Tips 1. Composing and holding the camera with less camera shaking. For clearer images, hold the camera firmly not to cause camera shaking. 1) For maximum stability, hold the camera firmly well over the grip and keep your right elbow lightly pressed against your body. 2) Support the lens or the camera body with your left hand from below. 3) Look into the optical viewfinder as if pressing your forehead to the camera. 4) Do not stand straight, but with one foot stepping forward for taking better balance of your body. 2. Change the composing and holding the camera according to the situation for securer photographing. (Particularly when you take photos using the LCD monitor.) 1) Lean against the wall. 2) Put the camera on a fixed object like a table. 3) Ensure the camera holding by pressing the elbow against the handrail. 4) Use the tripod. 3. Move the zoom control towards wide-angle if your camera has the zoom function. Moving the zoom control towards tele-angle, camera-shaking will easily happen. If your camera has the zoom function, we advise you to take photos by zooming towards wide-angle. 4. Higher shutter speed will produce better images. Slower shutter speed may produce more possible camera-shaking. If your camera has a choice of shutter speeds, we advise you to select higher shutter speed for less camera shaking.

Why are my photos blurry?


There are only three reasons photos look blurry: poor focus, shaking the cameral during the shot, or trying to take a photo of a fast-moving subject with a slow-speed camera.

You can usually see focus problems on the display before you take the picture, so that doesn't appear to be your issue. On the other hand, movement of camera or subject happens during the shot, so you'll only see that in the completed photo.

Camera movement first. Many cameras today have built-in "anti-shake" circuits that sense when you're the problem -- you're moving the camera during the shot. The best ones are very good at eliminating shakiness, but even they can't overcome large movement, as when you mash down the button to take the picture. If yours doesn't have anti-shake, or it isn't very well implemented, you'll just have to practice pushing gently on the button and holding the camera very still until it finishes the shot.

As for subject movement -- well, more sophisticated cameras offer ways to capture kids bouncing on a trampoline with a minimum of blurriness, but it's always going to be a problem.

If you don't want to switch to one of the more sophisticated cameras from a major brand, practice holding the camera steady during every shot and avoid shooting fast-moving subjects.

Is there anyway to stop or prevent the camera from shaking so much with a shaking hand when taking a picture?


First, if there is a stabilization option in the camera, make sure to have it enabled.

A good way to reduce shake is having your elbows in against your body for support. You could even use your knee to stabilize it if you can kneel. Also, lighting is important if you are getting blurry pictures from your hand shaking. Try to get as much light as possible and use flash when you need to.

I cannot seem to get a clear picture with my camera. The color is off and it looks blurry sometimes. What am I doing wrong?


Thee pictures are blurry most likely because you are shaking the camera as you are taking the picture. To help eliminate this lean against something solid, use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen or mount the camera to a tripod. The colour could be from not selecting the proper white balance for the scene you are shooting. Look in you manual and see if you have an "auto" white balance and set the camera to that.

Blurry pictures


try having other people take a picture with your phone, if they can take a more clear picture, it is likely that you are just a little shaky when taking pictures (i have the same problem)

Blurry and shaking pictures on LCD


refresh rate, likely
try to adjust to a compatible rate. the monitor manual will give you its compatible rates. the video card should have that rate available. if not, you may damage the monitor with the wrong rate.
stop and try another monitor that has a refresh rate available on your video card.
good luck

The camera display is a two-stage progressive display. The image is roughed out, then the interleaving lines are filled in. This has no effect on the image itself, just the monitor display. Apart from the media, digital photography is the same as film photography, and subject to the same challenges and requires the same time-honored techniques. If your pictures are blurry, you may be shaking the camera. Practice holding the camera firmly to your eye, and squeeze (don't poke) the shutter release. If you are holding the camera at arms length to shoot - what can I say? You can also increase the ISO speed, so that the shutter speed is faster. You may not be focusing on the right area. Focus on the subject (line up the box in the viewfinder), particularly on the eyes, by pressing half-way on the shutter release. Holding, to lock the focus, re-point the camera to compose the picture before pressing the shutter release the rest of the way. Make sure you hold the shutter release and wait the 1/2 second or so for the exposure to complete (the 5700 is painfully slow), indicated by the "green" light in the eyepiece, before whipping the camera from your face.

If there's not enough light your camera can't invent any. Well, normally it can, which is what a flash does, but as you've said, no flash allowed. Your photos are blury because you're not mounting the camera on a tripod or you are using an ISO value that's too low for the available light. The shutter speed is slow to make up for the lack of light you have. But it's obviously too slow to hand-hold and you're shaking too much when you're taking the photo. Increasing the shutter speed is only going to make your images underexposed. So, pick a higher ISO value or get a tripod or monopod. Oh and read the manual. As for you purchasing the wide angle lens and the telephoto lens, I can not fathom why you would purchase something and have no idea what it is used for. That just boggles my mind. Perhaps a basic photography book is in order? Something to get a few of the fundamentals down? Any photography book with the word "beginner" and probably the word "digital" in it would be a fine start. They're all equally basic.
