Hi Alan,

What mode are you using?

What are you trying to take photos off? e.g. moving or still, near or far objects?

Hi Pete,thanks.Iam using programme mode and I am taking stationary objects i.e. People an d flowers etc.
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 6 months ago

In Programme mode you will need to adjust the settings to get a good shot.
Does the camera take good shots ok in Auto mode?

I realize that I need to make adjustments, it is the same in all the other settings. Tx
Camera and Video Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 6 months ago

Just to confirm, if you select Auto mode and then try to take a picture of a stationary object - it is not sharp?
