Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera
Could someone let me know if I'm doing something wrong with my Sony camera? My pictures are shakey. I really have to make sure the camera is held solidly or the pics are not clear. I would use it more if I didn't have to worry about this as it's a nice small camera with a large viewing area. My Olympus D510 2 mp takes very clear pictures without even thinking about holding it still. Any advice????? Thank you.

This has been a complaint on all of the Sony ''W'' series of cameras. They seem to do very well outdoors. Indoors is another matter. Under low light and flash conditions, the camera selects a slow shutter speed. This means you must hold the camera very steady or use a tripod. Here are some things to try: 1. Take a photo and instead of looking at the LCD, look at the body of the camera and your forefinger. Make sure that you are not causing the camera to dip downward on the right side with you press the shutter button. You should squeeze the shutter button between you forefinger and thumb. 2. Under low light and flash conditions always use the viewfinder instead of the LCD to frame your subjects. When holding the camera to your eye, make sure it is lightly touching your face. You head is steadier than two outstretched arms. If you can lean against a wall or something solid, do that too. 3. Under all conditions, use the two step shutter press. Press the shutter button half way down, then reframe your subject. Then press the shutter button the rest of the way down. That how the pros do it.
