I notice when I try to take pictures without the flash on they are blurry, however I have no problems when I use the flash. How can I fix that?
Also, I'm not able to set the time and date on my camera. When I go to the menu to select it, it is "grayed" out and I'm not able to select it. So when I order my picture they are all stamped with the date I ordered them instead of the date I took the picture. How can I fix that?
Thanks for your help.
You can only set the date stamp in the “Post Card” resolution mode. Hit the “function” button, go down to the resolution selection (L, M, S, W, Postcard, etc.). Pick the “Post Card” setting. Hit the “menu” button and the “date stamp” menu will be active
If you're shooting in dim/low light & turn the flash off the camera will automatically select a slow shutter speed.
And you're getting blurry photos from camera movement is my best guess.
So hold the camera extra steady, perhaps brace yourself against a wall, tuck your arms into your side that sort of thing.
Try not to hold camera out at arms length - difficult to hold camera steady. Use the viewfinder instead of the screen to compose your photo.
I turn the flash off all the time, but I do hold the camera steady. Also, shoot more than one photo will increase your odds of getting one sharp.
As for the date stamp issue, I dunno. In fact, I turn my time/date stamp off. It's difficult navigating thru all those different menus & settings.

In portrait mode the pre-flash helps prevent red-eye in your pictures. You can set the flash to do this in other modes. As far as improving your pictures, are you pressing the shutter button half-way and allowing the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way or do you just press the button all the way every time hoping to get lucky?
The camera has a built-in flash...you can see it on the front of the camera. As for the blurry pics, set the camera on a firm surface and fire off a few shots...are the pics better? If so, then you are the cause of the blur because you move when you press the shutter button.
Instead of green auto mode set to P mode and chagne the flash setting to non auto.If flash is is in auto mode flash will not fire and picture will be blurry.So your flash must fire every time (and it must not be decided by camera's auto flash mode). I am sure this will solve your settings. Please rate if satisfied.
You need to configure the setting of the pictures, by removing it from blur to either sharp, soft or something else, click on the menu button of your camera to start the settings. The problem is as result of the settings you give your camera.
On digital cameras it is always best to press the button half way down before taking the picture. This helps the camera focus, thus preventing blurry images. Always, always press the button half way down. Secondly, if you are still getting blurry pictures, there is a possiblity that the sensor in your camera is bad. I don't know how old your camera is or how long you've had it, but you would need to send it for repair, exchange it, or if it's under warranty maybe they'll send you a new one.
After selecting flash off mode the camera determine the shutter speed according to the available light which may be rather slow.Therefore either camera shakes or the object or may be both of them while taking pictures.That's why pictures are blurry. Keep camera steady or mount it on a tripod while taking pictures on flash off mode.
Once u set the date & time and select OK I think it will not bother u again.
