Blurry pictures My canon Powershot A95 digital camera is taking very blurry shots. At first i thought it was the LCD but the old pics taken are viewing fine, the ones I take now are all blurred. I think maybe it has something to do with the lense.

Wipe off the lense with a clothe or something, that might be the problem. Or if you move the cam too much when you are trying to take a pic, that also mighht be the problem. If not, I have no idea. ... Canon IXUS V2 Digital Camera

Shutter too slow and pics of people blurry. I have the camera on auto setting, push button half way down, focus, then all the way, take the pic. If the subject is moving AT ALL, the pic comes out blurry. There are other settings, but the one I want is the one that will take pics of my kids and not be blurry.

If your camera has a sport or action mode that would be your best option if your pics keep coming out blurry. These modes are made for action shots. Its worth a try! ... Samsung S860 Digital Camera

Digital camera hi i just got a digital camera at first i had problems because the pictures were grainy but i seem to have fixed this with changing the iso to 100 but now the pics seem to b blurry it kind of looks out of focus, if i take a still moving object outside it is better but still a little bit blurred although not much, but inside it is worse and if i try taking a pic of my kids well there is no chance it goes far too blurry because they wont stand still enough, also the flash seems to a

The auto setting stopped working - I usually always had it set on Auto, then "Auto" became video (same setting as video setting) for some reason. Now, it won't take pics on certain settings and only lets me take pics on a fast setting, so pics always come out blurry. Sometimes won't let me view or forward through pics. I've charged battery. Do you think I need to replace the battery?

My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?
