When the SD630 came out, I read, including Steve's, review and all were saying it was one of the best click and shoot cameras. So I bought the camera.

Well, I guess I'm not agreeing with all the reviews anmore.

I need help. I got the Canon SD630. It is the same camera as the SD600 (but with a 3" LCD Screen).

I have trouble focusing on anything when I'm not in the Automatic flash mode. It gives me a red camera shaking icon on the lower left hand corner (plus the orange circular light flashes continuously).

Sometimes i don't want the flash to work cause the flash engulfs the picture and makes things more white than I want to.

I've messed with the ISO setting or even the preset exposure mode (ie, Portrait, Night Snapshot,Kids & Pets, Indoor, Foliage) and I still snap a blurred picture.

Please help me with my shaky camera issue.

That's due to the lack of image stabilisation (IS). The newer SD models have that.

As forreviews, I agree with you... I figure we are supposed to read them, ask people for advice, but always make a decision based on our ownpreferences (and feelings).

I believe a tripod would help?
