Default Item Focusing with a60

Now I love my camera, don't get me wrong.

I do reviews for a webside (the one in my signature) and when I need to take pictures of products with my camera, with the flash the pictures are great, but sometimes I do not like the lighting effect the flash creates.

But the problem that bugs me a little bit, is that when I take pictures without the flash i get somewhat out-of-focus images.

Now what I am guessing is because I am not using a tripod to takes these pictures. Though why is it with the flash, the images are sharp and perfect, but without the flash they are out-of-focus?

Does the shutterspeed have a part in this? With the flash on, the shutter speed will be slightly faster (thus no camera shake icon) as opposed to having no flash where the shutter will be slightly longer?

So am I to now figure out a nice shutter speed for taking pictures of products indoors without a flash... am I correct in thinking I should set up the speed?

Thanx for the info!
