Tips for preventing blur

If your hands or body move while holding the camera and pressing the shutter button, "Camera shake" occurs.

Camera shake occurs frequently under low-light or slow shutter speed conditions, such as those encountered in (Night Portrait) or (Night Scene) mode.

To reduce camera shake, set the self-timer to a 2-second delay and brace your arms against your sides after pressing the shutter button.

Automatic shooting with Self-portrait timer

Point the lens at yourself so that the selected number of faces is reflected in the screen. The shutter operates automatically. Do not move your camera after the beep sounds.
