Slow shutter speed.
Bad technique.

I do not know how long the telephoto is on the W5, but I do know that camera shake is magnified at the telephoto end, so any camera shake is magnified and that results in a 'blurry' photo. Hand held photos are MUCH more difficult at the telephoto end. You need to support the camera on something (such as a tripod, a wall, a telephone pole) and be very careful (as in be very aware of any camera movement) when you trip the shutter. A higher shutter speed will help in this regard.

If you could post an example photo it would help to be more specific.
