First three, you're too close for your camera to focus. The fourth, the blur is from a long shutter speed. You need more light. You can get this from a flash or...more lights! MAcro mode will help, but you still may need more light. A good way to tell what is causing the blur is how the blue looks. If the blur is streaky, like the fourth pick, where it looks like things moved, then there is not enough light. If the blur is very uniform liek the first three, like when you unfocus you eyes, then it is probably focal blur...need to back up.

i tried using the digital zoom while backed up n it still blurred out thats why i went in closer ^^:

Yeah, you've gotta back up. Macro on most "point and shoot" cameras doesn't do all that much. Digital zoom wont gain you any detail, since it is zooming "digitally"...meaning it's just taking the picture, then stretching it, effectively doing the same as cropping the image in a photo editing program, then zooming in on the cropped section to make it full picture size. :)

Hehehe...I can go into more detail than you want about anything digital camera related if you have any questions or curiosities ;)

hahah...yeah...that's pretty much it. Although, if you have an old lens from a 35mm...you can hold it in front of your camera, backwards, to take macro shots. Pretty much any lens will work.

Best for the money is easily a Canon Rebel (any of them, especially used!). Not too intimidating, not TOO large (although, pretty large)...infinitely better at taking pictures than a point and shoot. Instant pictures too...none of the push the button, wait for the picture..it's push and click it's taken, like "real" cameras (mostly is a real camera with a sensor in place of the film strip).

It's only infinitely if the right lens is on the end of it. A fixed 600mm won't get you far for taking pictures of fish.

The pictures aren't instant at all. Especially a rebel series (assumably with a kit lens.. )
