    fuzziness can usually be corrected by using a tripod. This is especially important when taking close ups..
    Hope that helps.

    For some reason EVERY time I tried to use a tripod I never got that greenlight and that "beep!" that tells me to take a pic.

    This was a problem back in the 80s when the camera manufacturers starting using more and more plastic in the bodies of 35mm SLRs. If you tightened the tripod mount screw too much it would deform the bottom of the camera and cause shorts in the flex circuit boards/connectors. Try backing off the screw a tad.

    Lol, I didn't even use a screw lol. The tripod is for an old camera and I just sat it on top lol. VERY carefully lol.

    Oh well. I don't NEED macros.

    well the problems with using a tripod for shots like the ones above is that how do you use a tripod when the subject is on the ground. I can not think of any way to get the camera in position to take those pics if it was attached to the tripod.

    You need to get a tripod with either a reversible center column or one on with a mounting screw on the bottom of the center column. Or rest your camera on a small bean/sand bag. Or a small table top tripod.

    As Not a Number, mentioned. You mount the camera underneath the tripod. Then you can mount/stabilize the camera as close to the subject as you wish before taking the shot.

    These fuzzy shots do not appear to have been caused by too low a shutter speed, so a tripod wouldn't help in this case. You may have gotten too close, and was beyond the macro focusing ability of the camera. Make sure the camera is in macro mode, and if it can't focus correctly, move the camera back a little from the subject and try again.

    I love the Sony cybershot cameras. I find they have insane macro focusing abilities. 2cm I believe.
