Blurry Photos
I have been trying to take some pictures of my fish for the forums but have been unable to do so due to the camera photos being blurry. is there a way to fix this or is my camera just useless?

Maybe useless or wait till your fish stop moving and try to keep your hand still best way to get a good pic.

What type of camera are you using? I have a Canon Powershot and the best photos I have taken are without using the flash, in a dark room with just the tanklights on, using the macro "mode".

Well, this mod certainly does NOT know everything. Do any of us ever really know everything??

I just googled the specs on your camera and it seems that it is perfectly capable of taking nice pictures. Post the second grouping of pics you took (we still need to ID your pleco) and let's have a look. :-)

im going to use a different camera when i take pics of my other aquarium later and hopefully they wont be blurry! D:

i tried standing far back and zooming in but it still blurs :(

The last picture posted is pretty clear. Did you play with the macro mode on the camera??

Ramenuzumaki 09-13-2009 02:50 PM

According to this link the macro mode is found under the manual focus feature of your camera:
