Fish photographing I have a HP 3.5 (i think) and it takes great pictures of family pets etc ... but, how do I take clear pictures of fish?

Blurry pictures Hello: Wondering if anyone has any problems with taking blurry pictures. It doesn't matter what I do, i.e., adjust the setting, exposure, etc., 9 out of 10 pictures come out all blurry. Is it just not a good camera, or is there any other suggestions from people out there that may be of help to me. Thank you for all that respond.

YES to the lens focus ring ... check it often.\015\012Also, low light is a no-no unless close up with the flash (like 10 ft. max). Try test photos on the tripod with focus ring set to the little mountain outside to verify camers is OK.\0 ... Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera

Blurry pictures My camera has two settings on the front. One is to take still pictures, such as flowers, the other setting is for action shots. My camera will not switch back to the action setting. There is a switch on the front of the camera. I have switched it to the right position, and it won't work. I have also taken the batteries out of the camera and switched it again. No dice. This sucks because I am missing a lot of good pictures of my kids. please help.

Sometimes when I am ready to take a picture I point, focus and shoot and at the bottom of the screen in red it will say 1/15 and next to it F 50 or other times it will say F38 and picture comes out blurry.

Pictures always come out blurry and/or the lighting is awful regardless of what "scene" i choose. The only one that works "okay" some of the time is "portrait" scene.

Camera takes pictures very slowly thus they always come out blurry. I have the megapixel settings on their lowest and even with action settings on they are still blurry is there anything I can do?
