Okay, so I'm either terrible at taking pictures with my digital camera or there's something wrong with my digital camera. Please tell me which based on the following symptoms and also, how to improve my situation:
1) 90% of the time when I take a picture, it comes out blurry. Slightly blurry. Just blurry enough to be an annoyance. This happens both indoors and out. And I wait for the camera to focus. You know, I hold the button down until it flashes green (instead of yellow) before taking the shot. But even then...blur occurs.
2) I am simply unable to take pictures of small things, like my geckos or the wood frog from the other day (that picture was scavenged from the intertubes). I would love to show you guys my geckos in high-definition, but my camera won't cooperate. The more I zoom in, the worse the picture comes out.
3) When I use the auto-flash, the picture turns out really bright. When I don't use the auto-flash, the picture comes out very dark, unless there's lots of natural lighting, as in a window is behind me and the sun is shining.
Should I just get a new camera? I need to know these things for my potential trip to the Galapagos in January...and for the gecko pictures. Help meeee!
