    Ok, i have a powershot sd300 its 4.0 MP and i dont know if i have it set up right or what...because when i take the flash off and have it perfectly still on something the pics STILL dont seem to be the clearest...i mean i know its not a SUPER EXPENSIVE camera but it was over 300$ when i bought it so i figured it would be awesome...

    here is a pic, if anyone has this camera can you compare and tell me if this is as good as it gets.... this pic is with the flash off and its on a stable surface.

    even with it on a stable surface you still have to push the button which still moves the camera. If you were using the timer I have no clue why it is coming out like this.

    There should be a way to change the shutter speed on point and shoots. Try putting it in action mode. :dunno: or cloudy mode if that's what it's called :hs: I'm not much help with p&s but it seems to me like your shutter is too slow.

    I have this cam too, it's a decent cam for the price and convenience of being able to throw it in my pocket, but it's nothing special, your ISO is probably too high

    tripod + timer + long exposure = better (maybe not perfect) pics in low light situations (as long the subject is stationary)
