I've recently had to take pictures for yearbook and noticed a lot of them were shaky and didn't turn out well. I was using my dads canon g10 and can't use a tripod as I have to move around a lot. Thanks!

Shorten your shutter speed. The faster it is, the less your picture will blur, but it will also be darker, so make sure your other settings are able to compensate.

I will laugh as they overwhelm our enemies in a flurry of spotted banana hammocks.

thanks, except I have absolutely no idea how to change settings on a camera at all lol. To the owners manual!

Because I was literally the only one who could do it at the time.

Shorter shutter speed(higher number after 1/ ) freezes the picture more.
Lower f-stop(bigger aperture) brings more light into the camera.
And high ISO brings more light on the picture, but also brings grain, so keep that as low as possible.

Balance these out and you get right exposure and a clear picture.

That's really the downfall of point and shoot cameras, they are slow.

Reading this thread, I have to ask this question:

Are your pictures blurry, out of focus, or both?

If the pictures are blurry, that means the camera is trying to compensate because the environment in which you're trying to take pictures in is far too dark for the camera's settings (I doubt you know what ISO is, and if you were using an auto mode (which according to your posts, you should be) I'm surprised things were still blurry)

If the pictures are out of focus, then the camera isn't properly focusing on whatever it is you're trying to photograph

Do your pictures look like this?
(out of focus)

Or do they look like this?
(blurry)

Did you take your pics during an earthquake?
It's all about the game and how you play it, All about control and if you can take it
All about your debt and if you can pay it, It's all about pain and who's gonna make it
