anyone know of a good digital camera I can find for a decent price that'll let me take much better pics of my Ts? I got one that was a christmas present but it sucks to high hell! all my pics are always super blury and its really hard to take any pic of anything without it being blury. I would love to find a better camera, so was wondering if any of u guys might recomend something.

I have a little canon that I like but that's just me. I would check out some point and shoots at your local best buy or whatever and find the one that has the best macro setting for you.

What kind of camera is it and what mode are you trying to take pics in?

If you got it as a xmas present last year and it is a digital camera, I bet if you play with your settings the camera will yield better pictures. We only have a point and shoot, but once you mess with the settings and put it in macro(flower) it takes pretty darn good pics. Not the stunning ones that the $550+ camera will yield, but good none the less.:)

I have a three-year old Nikon Coolpix. I make the note it is three years old, as this means it's already three or more generations down the line. It's an 8 megapixel, with 3.6x zoom, and 2.7 inch LCD display. As with many of the newer digital cameras, there is no viewfinder. This took a long time for me to get used to, being a film-camera person, and doing some semi-pro shooting in college. It does mean you can hold the camera down away from you and still see what you are shooting.

It has several modes (easy, movie, sport, etc), you can use auto flash, or turn it off. It also has a macro setting, which I use on some of the smaller spiders. It takes an SD smart card, and AA batteries.

They run about $200-$250, which I consider reasonable. It's small enough to fit in a pocket or purse. I can put 1000 or more photos on the chip (8g) and you can purchase additional chips and use various sizes. While it's a little slow on low-light action (like daughter's martial arts) for shooting the Ts, outside, and most other situations, it's a trooper.

Sounds like user error, I would read the manual. You may be getting too close for it to focus, see if there is a macro mode you can use. If that doesn't help then you prob need more lighting, any thing you can do for lighting would be a great help. If shooting through glass do not use the on board flash. a bright drafting lamp or something like that lighting from the top or side would be helpful.
