Default d560-z

I was wondering what I can do to stop getting blurry pictures. i fI hold the camera perfectly still I get fine pictures, but I guess I gitter sometimes and I'd say half come out blurry. can I increase shutter speed on this camera? I have tried to mess with the settings, but havent gotten any better results. hopefully this is a simple fix. thanks guys

Assume you are talking about the Olympus d-560z (since this is a forum for all brands and you didn't mention the brand).

First off, we have to find out what was the cause of the blurriness...it could be inability to focus, slow shutter speed and the subject moved too fast, it could be camera shake because the camera was zoomed in too far for the shutter speed chosen. What is needed is to see what the Exif info says (Exif is info encoded into each picture which shows shutter speed, zoom position, etc) for the bad pictures. Seeing the actual pictures (in conjuction with the Exif info) would also help.

This camera is known as a "point & shoot" which means there's no manual controls like shutter speed, etc. You can compensate a little by choosing the Night mode which should boost the ISO at the cost of noise in the picture. With point & shoots you are more limited in what you can do. With many Olys it will flash the flash symbol to say that there's not enough light, you need to use the flash (if within its range) or you'll get camera shake/blurriness.

how do I find out what you were mentioning.. the exif info?

most of the time If I think there might be a blurry pic I take another, and usually it turn out fine. I dont know what would cause one pic to be blurry and the next would be fine other than me shaking. if I move the slightest bit I get blur. or if anything is moving I get blur.

When you view a picture, it will also show the Exif info (the settings that were used to take the picture.
