Default Indoor photos always blurred

I have a 750UZ.

No matter what settings I use, whether I use the flash or not, 99% of my photos are blurred when taken indoors.

Is there some fundemental reason I am missing in order to capture a decent photo indoors?

Thanks in advance

Is the 750 a new camera for you? If you've used point-and-shoot cameras up to now, all you had to do was aim and push the shutter down to get the photo. The 750 has a two stage shutter. Compose your shot, press the shutter halfway to lock in the focus and settings, then press it all the way down.

Did you look at the little green dot in the upper left corner of the screen or viewfinder? If it was a steady green light, the focus should be correct (assuming that your subject was the area you focused upon.) If the green light was flashing, you'd have to release the shutter and try again.

You could also try going to manual focus for the low-light pictures.

Hope this helps!

Are you shooting a full max zoom on your indoor pics?

Thanks to you both for the information.

This is my first digicam. It's mostly used for photographing birds in the garden.

I have tried with full zoom on and off indoors, with the same result.

Usually I go for automatic focus, but to change it to manual seems a little tedious, especially if you want to "get that instant shot".

I have noticed on a number of occasions, that no matter how much I half press the button, the subject doesn't come into focus.

Just a suggestion but make sure the macro mode is off.
