Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

From the default settings it should take clear photos, nothing special needs to be done.

Can you get normal photos of aanything at all on the camera?

Please let me know

Thank you

I get some good pics....but when the puppies are moving around its hard to get any good pics
Camera and Video Technician: Richard, Technician replied 8 months ago

ok, what you need to try to do is raise the ISO as this will give a faster shutter speed reducing Blur

To do this, press the ISO button and press UP to get it to 200

Tell me how it then works please
