Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera ?

Blurry photos I love my A80. I know it's best to use a tripod to avoid camera shake but I can't always use a tripod when taking photos of my active toddler. I like to do close ups of her face and her playing but pics of her are blurry and this is a disappointment. What setting do you recommend?

Answers :

Automatic "Portrait" mode would work best for what you describe. It's the setting showing the profile of a woman on your mode dial. Try it both with and without flash (press the "lightning bolt" button on the back of your camera).

All indoor pictures look grainy or blurry. There are a lot of noise in my photos, and it really seems to have difficulty capturing moving people as the intelligent auto often chooses the night portrait scene for indoor people shots. In the manual it recommends using a tripod and having the subject stand still. I am trying to photograph active toddlers (18 months and 3 years old). I have found switching to sports helps sometimes. The baby setting seems useless unless they are sleeping since it us

I take a lot of close ups of products for my job. They are consistently blurry. Is there a camera problem, or perhaps this camera isn't made for close-ups. Help! I am using the A630.

Hello, I have the s7000. My batteries seem to be fine. It does not save the pictures quickly like it used to. The green light at the back stays orange for a while, then flickers orange/gree, then it has saved the photo and i can shhot again. Also when i turn it off, if the light is orange it will not close or retract the lens. Only after a few seconds, quite a few will it close. I also notice the pictures are not as sharp as before. Also, a few times the lens has not come out when turned on,

The saving issue may well be helped by unloading the photos from the memory and memory card and then reformatting it. It is recommended that the memory be reformatted after every download of photos rather than just extracting them and using the ... Fuji FinePix S7000 Digital Camera

I am a freelance writer. I have a Canon PowerShot A1000IS that I use to take photos to go along with articles I write for the local paper. Recently almost all the pictures I take are blurry on the top 1/3 of the photo. It hasn't always been this way and it doesn't happen all the time so it makes me think that possibly I have somehow gotten some of the settings off. The bottom 1/3 is sometimes a little blurry too but not as much as the top. Can anyone tell me what would cause this and what I can
