I realise this isn't 'Travel Gear' as such.... but help! I am after a digital camera for my travels. I want one that is good quality and takes photos quickly....so i don't miss anything. The one i have at the moment is a Nikon Coolpix which was pretty expensive, however blurs my photos 60% of the time :( Any ideas on a new one? Thanks x

========================

No, it doesn't.

The Coolpix line from Nikon are perfectly capable cameras. It's YOU who is blurring your photos, not the camera.

Get some simple advice from an enthusiast photographer, take a course, etc. It'll all be fine once you know how to use the camera.

Cheers,
Terry

If you could explain under which conditions the photos blur perhaps we could offer some advice. Is it perhaps mostly in low light situations or indoors? Which setting do you usually choose, simply the auto or do you use scene modes too?

Cheers,
Terry
