I think the first mistake I made was buying the H7, I had an old Canon A30 that took better pictures than this, even on my W810 camera phone I am able to snap off a few better shots than the H7. Perhaps I am just not doing something right but it seems like the only good pictures I can take have to be real close and in perfect daylight. Here are some photos taken of my eldest son and daughter, these I consider to be ok but not as good as I would like to see. http://scj6771.smugmug.com/gallery/3681720/1/210560026 Here are some more photos that I am really upset about, the lighting is horrible and some are blurry, I am just so frustrated. http://scj6771.smugmug.com/gallery/3813569/3/220244121 For the price I paid for this camera I thought I would have gotten better results. I only use the "automatic" mode but have played around with the other settings a bit with the same frustrating results. Any thoughts?
