Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
This is a great camera! Are you using the focus guide to focus on your main subject. Move the camera until your main subject is in the bos ten depress the shutter button 1/2 way down to focus the subject. Leave you finger there at the focus point-You can then move the camera to take in more objects or people and gently push the shutter all the way down. Generally, the causes of out of focus photos are:
the camera in the wrong mode-just start with the general mode-usually a little camera symbol
do not change any settings-if you have go to the menu button and settings and go back to default settings
the focus feature of the camera 9explained above is not being used
You are too close to the subject (use the zoom instead)
You are experiencing camera movement by pressing on the shutter too hard or moving your hands. A tripod always works best.
You can go to www.panasonic.com and obtain a manual for your camera if you do not have it.
If your camera still gives you blurry photos, please get back to me with any info that might help- have you dropped it or gotten it wet or anything like that?

Clean the lens if it's dirty, try to turn on auto focus (or set up manually if you know the distance to an object you're shooting), get good light while taking pictures, stabilize the camera (try not to shake it), press the shooter button only half way down and wait a second until you see or hear the signal that the camera has focused the image, and then press the button all the way down to take the picture. Best pictures are usually taken during daylight, when the sun is behind the camera, and your camera is on a stand. Try not to take the pictures with camera pointed towards the sun.
