Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Please tell me what problem shows up in the shots you are getting; whether they are outdoor or indoor, close or far, and what sort of lens you use(d) for each type of shot.
Is the whole picture not sharp and clear, or only some of it? (With some F-stop values, the 'field of focus' can be so shallow as to be sharply upon whatever is focused in, and nothing else.)
Have you enabled the Super Steady Shot feature? (anti-shake or anti-vibration, or camera steadier.)
The MegaPixels rating for this Sony camera is 10 Mpx. Compare an undoubtedly well-regarded camera, the Canon 5D Mark III: it has 12.8 Mpx effectively.
Admittedly this Sony camera model is not rated highest for flexible customization, and lack the Live View feature... but it's a good-enough DSLR. It's some feature you haven't enabled, that may be the problem. That's why I advise you to try
A: enabling the Super SteadyShot feature, and also try
B: placing the camera on a solid base e.g. a brick wall, and try photographing from there. Or, on a very steady tripod. See if tripod, or brick-wall, shots come out clearer! after focusing carefully.
