I love photography but HELP

ok guys so last summer i bought a panasonic dmc fs7 point and shoot camera and i love it! It has had some issues lately auto focusing but none the less i have had some great shots as i will show below

I am looking into getting a dslr some time down the road but i find it hard to hold and manual focus the lens with cp using my left hand as would permit being that the shutter is usually on the right side correct? I am hoping someone can help

but alas here are a few pics from this

You can see how the second picture is so blurred all three were taken on auto settings

    Does your camera have “Scene” settings, apart from the auto ones?

    I have trouble having the camera not move as well.

  2. it does i havent quite mastered them and it works well in normal mode with flash regardless of lighting

    strange! i don’t know what might particularly be causing your problem with autofocus. if the store you bought it at says the AF is working fine mechanically, then it could be a number of other things: if it’s too dark in the room and you’re not using the flash, the shutter would have to stay open longer to get a proper exposure, and it’s easy to see camera shake from hand movement during a longer exposure. this is the #1 reason why i end up with blurry photos when not using flash. the solution would be to either open up the aperture farther if possible or turn up the ISO (the camera sensor’s sensitivity to light.) of course, these things are manually aadjustable on most cameras, even compact ones, outside of auto mode.

    that aside, i’d recomment Panasonic Lumix cameras to anyone shopping for a point and shoot. i recently picked up the DMC LX3 for myself and i couldn’t be happier (it’s one of their higher end ones – i got it for $450 but it’s regular $600 Canadian – but i’d still recommend their entry level cameras to anyone.)

    as for a current DSLR, your money would be best spent on a Nikon D90. it’s the best value in a DSLR at the moment, if you consider image quality and usability versus price. that or the entry level D5000 – they both have nearly identical image sensors. and yes, the shutter and shooting controls are on the right. unlike most things that come in right and left handed models, cameras are almost exclusively right handed.
