Can others edit my Photos

Hello could someone please help? I have a AW130 but am having problems with the zoom. I tried taking a photo but when I used the zoom it just came out a total blur. I last had a casio and had no problems with that.
it's a 2.8 to 4.9 lens. so when you zoom in you're losing almost 2 stops of light.

that means if you were shooting a 1/160sec at 4mm, when you zoom in to 21mm youll have to shoot at 1/40sec to keep the same exposure. that's way too slow to achieve sharp images hand held.
Thank you for your reply.. I understand a bit of what you said but I'm no expert at photography. Is there a way I can at least get a decent photo. Forgot to say I did take it at night time
