Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7530 Digital Camera
I don't know if it is me or what but I am having a hard time with getting good pictures with this camera. When I take day photos they come out sometimes blurry, which it could be me moving the camera but any time I take pics at night, the pics come out dark. So I would use the night feature on it, then they come out blurry. I get more bad pics than good. I never had this problem with my old camera which was a Fuji 2650. I guess i am going to have to invest in a better camera than this. Has anyone else had a problem with the Kodak CX7530? Also any suggestions on a camera simular to this one but much better? There are so many out there I don't know which one to buy. I don't want to spend more than $500 on a good digital. Thank you all so much!! Have a great day! Marie

The first thing you need to determine.... Is it your or the camera? You need to take a series of shots with your camera sitting on a tripod. If you do not have a tripod, sit the camera on a solid surface. ................... Camera movement is the number one cause of blurred photos. A few tips: 1. When you punch down the shutter button ... that can move the camera just as the picture is taken. Dont ''punch'' down the shutter button. Hold the camera in such a manner that you are squeezing the shutter button between your forefinger and thumb. 2. When you are using the LCD to frame the shot, you have your arms extended in front of you. This invites camera movement. Instead, use the viewfinder and make sure that the camera is pressed against your face. Your head is steadier that two outstreatched arms. For added stability, lean your shoulder against a pole, tree, building, or other solid object. 3. When taking flash pictures remember, that flash only covers so much area. The CX7530 is rated for 11.8 feet if you are not using optical zoom. It is rated for only 6.9 feet if you are using optical zoom. If your subject(s) are beyond those distances, you will get a dark photo. 4. When shooting in dim light and not using flash, the camera will select a slow shutter speed. You must use a tripod or sit the camera on a solid surface.
