Panasonic DMC-TZ3 pictures never seem crisp and clear

\015 The instruction book really does not help. My pictures always seem a little blurry and not crisp. I'm not sure if I'm using the right settings. I try using ntelligent ISO, hoping it will do it automatically but that doesn't help. I don't even know if I should be increasing the picture size or quality but I also don't like when each picture takes up a ton of space on my hard drive. Please help. I'm getting ready to get rid of the camera.\015

TZ stands for Travel Zoom, which is code for Outside View shots. The TZ is supper in good light, not so much in lower light.

In side shots need to be with 8 feet of subject so the flash can reach. Use ISO and IS mode 2 settings, especially IS(Image Stabilization) on zoomed shots where ANY camera movement becomes amplified by the ZOOM.

Lastly, camera movement and/or subject movement will add blur to a shot. Squeeze off shot, don't push it off. Try to brace your camera against another object when possible, or hold you elbows against your sides when you can't. Treat taking a pic shot like you were taking a rifle shot. Stabilize yourself when possible and gradually squeeze off the shot when possible.

When low light cannot be avoided, try the night shot setting, which will keep the shutter open longer to gather more light, but will be much more venerable to camea movement at the same time.
