Disappointed with Better Camera - Photography

Hi, I used to own a Kodak DX3500 Digital Camera, it was an easy point and shoot camera with excellent 2.2 MP Pics. I decided to upgrade to a better camera, so I bought the Canon A70 with 3.2MP. While most of the day shots are quite good, I am still getting many blurry images even on Auto setting. However nearly most of my night shots are total crap. Most are blurry.

    Default Disappointed with Better Camera

    Hi, I used to own a Kodak DX3500 Digital Camera, it was an easy point and
    shoot camera with excellent 2.2 MP Pics.

    I decided to upgrade to a better camera, so I bought the Canon A70 with
    3.2MP.

    While most of the day shots are quite good, I am still getting many blurry
    images even on Auto setting.

    However nearly most of my night shots are total crap.
    Most are blurry.
    I am holding the camera dead still.

    It has a setting for night shots, however while it brings up the background
    lights pretty good, the subject is crap, very blurry.

    Why is this, I am so disappointed, I should of kept the easy no frills
    Kodak.

    Any advice much appreciatted.

    Thanks

    For night shots, especially without a flash, you're going to need a
    tripod. Night mode keeps the shutter open for a longer time so that the
    flash will expose the foreground while the long shutter speed will
    expose the background. Anything that moves while the shutter is open
    will be blurry. If you move the camera while the shutter is open, then
    everything will be blurry. The maximum apperture (f/2.8 or f/4 etc) will
    make a difference as well, since this will affect the amount of time for
    which the shutter has to stay open.

    Oh, by the way, I dont know if you can do it on the A70 or not, but if
    you can chnge the ISO speed to a higher setting, you'll get shorter
    shutter speeds and have less chance of blur.

    Post your EXIF info.

    If you say on Night shot mode, your A70 is producing good background lights
    but a blurry subject that should only be one thing.
    It open its shutter long enough to capture the background lights also hence
    your objects that is alive, move around while the shutter is open.
    Ask your object to stand very STILL for 10secs ... [if possible, hold their
    breath :) ]

    and for night shots, don't handheld your camera. Use a tripod.
