Why do my images appear blurry?

Question:
Why do my images appear blurry?

Answer:
Be sure that the shake hand warning does not appear on the LCD screen when you are composing an image. It is an indication that the shutter speed is slower than 1/60 sec and will typically appear under dim lighting. To remove the camera shake icon from the screen you must increase the ambient lighting of the scene and/or increase the shutter speed of the camera.

There are several methods to increase the shutter speed of your camera:

• Set the camera's flash mode to Forced Flash.

• If your camera has the Scene Position photography mode, use this in the Sports setting.

• If your camera has the Shutter Priority-Auto mode, shoot in this mode and set the shutter speed to a value of 1/60sec or faster.

Please note that you can still take great pictures when the camera shake icon is present. However, to do so you must not move the camera during the shot. Even the slightest tremors in your hands as you steady the camera may cause your images to appear blurry and out of focus. We recommend that you use a tripod or other method of steadying the camera when the camera shake icon is present.

Blurred images are a result of a combination of low light and a slow shutter speed. Under poor lighting conditions the camera shake icon will appear on the LCD screen of your camera to serve as a warning.
