I have a Canon SX1 and take some really sharp shots.
But, whenever I point it towards the sky (I like taking pictures of aircraft at airshows etc) the noise in the pictures is very noticeable.
Are there any tricks I can apply to reduce this noise?
Also, a lot of pictures turn out fuzzy!
I can take a shot that is as sharp as a tack, then the next few are fuzzy. Don't know if it's me (I've been using film slrs and digital compact for more than 30 years) or if it's the camera.
My previous cameras were eos film cameras and I never had a problem with fuzziness.

I'm not totally sure what could be the cause it isn't likely to be camera shake so potentially missed focus. Do you have some examples you could share as that would really help pinpoint what is going on.

Thanks Mark,
I just tried, but obviously have to 'reduce' them first.
Will post as soon as I work out how to do that.

See how this goes Mark.
I have just run them through the Canon EX browser and noticed all have iso80 locked in.
Possibly my over-reaction to noise when pointing skyward.
Would this be reason for the bland fuzziness?

Add this for comparison Mark.
Taken same day as above, same camera and same settings.
You can count the hairs on the guys head!

Hi Nev, at this size it is hard to tell. Can you post some 100% crops of the areas of concern so we can see the detail? If you are not sure what that means check out http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ge...a-quality.html

Thanks Mark,
Having done that it looks for all the world to me to be a focus problem.
But, the focus lock activated each time from memory.
