  6. Why are my images appearing blurry?

    The "blurry" photos you are experiencing could be because of a range of factors. 

    Please check if the camera is focusing when you are taking the photo. Most digital cameras have a two stage shutter button. This means that when you slightly depress the shutter button the cameras will auto focus and "charge" the CCD ready to take the photo. Once you get the auto focus confirmation light illuminating in the electronic view finder (this is the green circle in the top left of the screen) your camera will take the photo immediately upon the full depression of the shutter release button. 

    For further issues with "blurry" photos, please get in contact with our friendly customer support team.
