How do I take great shot of diamond jewlery? I have a CP 5700? All the shots I have taken have had blurry diamonds.

It depends on why you're getting blurry photos.

The most common cause is blur from camera shake, since your shutter speeds are likely very slow.

Use a tripod, use macro mode, use smaller apertures (higher f/stop numbers) to get more of the image in focus.

For best results, you'll also need a diffused light source.

Canned solution (or check your kitchen to make your own):
