I love all of the pics that the people in the forum have taken. I bought the 5100 with great expectations, but I was really disappointed. I don't know if it was my amateur status or the camera, but most of my pics were blurry and awful in color. So, I got a Canon A95 as a replacement. Should I return it for another S5100?

Geez! I have to really try hard to get a bad picture with mine. Where did you buy it?

If you followed the directions in Auto Mode, then something was wrong with the camera.

newbie,

I'm with Ken - my S5100 makes me look like a pretty good photographer. Why don't you post a couple of your blurry, awful in color pics, and maybe we can figure out if you did something wrong, or it was a defective camera.

By the way...how are the pics taken with the A95?

Too bad. That Canon is a real downgrade. I had an A75 for a very short time and i was displeased with the picture sharpness. How could you leave that 10x zoom?

I really like my 5100. You have to be careful to hold it very steadily in low light using the full zoom, but the picture quality especially at ISOs 64 and 100 is very impressive to me.

Good luck with your Canon. I have an A75. It is a good camera for the money, but the 5100 is much better for my purposes.

The camera seemed to be a little trickier to become comfortable with than my other two digitals, but once I got the hang of it I really like the 5100. Are you sure you had the correct focus mode selected? Did you try Continuous Auto Focus? Also, it makes a difference which shooting mode you have selected.

I have gotten some really great shots using my S5100, and found that with practice I can even use the 10X zoom without a tripod or Monopod. Here is the first example and my first shot using the 10X zoom at full zoom with my TCON-17. Remember this is my first shot. No tripod used in this shot.

I've taken some great shots with the camera also. It's very handy and takes great photos with beautiful color.

I'd post a few...but I'm shy.....
