I have a new camera, a bargin at twenty quid second hand! It has a suped up zoom thingemy. I was just going to leave the yard when a friend started squeeking... there were two baby mice in a stable. So I ran to get my camera and started to play... next I took some pics of ben in the field... he was half way across the paddock... about 70% of the pics came out blurry, but the others Im pretty chuffed with. some of the shots of ben are awesome :D although it has made me realise he has rather a few hairs that need cutting off his tail and his hocks are downright grubby :D

Anyway, posting all these pics would drive me mad, but there are some real crackers in there and I thought I would share... couldnt even wait until Id cropped some of them... but here are a few of my favourites and a link to the album....

plus, any tips on how to reduce the percentage of blurry pics would be great... how on earth do people manage to just point and capture without blur so consistently????!!!

You want a digital slr camera for that. Anything slower than an slr doest capture the image fast enough to elimnate the blur

Hmmm, I have no idea what mine is... It's a Nikon coolpix L110???? I'm just a simple hobbyist and this is the best I've ever owned to be fair. The zoom is far and away better than I've ever had, it has a sports mode that takes 7 odd pics in fast succession and what I do like is when you click, it takes a pic, there is very little delay... I've always had notoriously shakey hands, Twizzle once asked me to take some pics of her on ebony, even with her camera (and she is a pro) they came out shakey. I used the wall or my knees for some today to steady myself and those were the best...

Your camera is a 'point and shoot' digital camera. These kinds of cameras are very niceand take some excellent photos, however they do often fall down when there is movement or very fine details needed. You will also find the more you zoom in the greater the distrubance causes by camera shake which will cause blur.

Slr cameras take a photo in a different way to 'point and shoot' and thus are much less sensitive to camera movement or blur when the photo subject is moving.

To get less blur from your camera I would suggest a tripod to allow you to keep the camera as still as possible, especially at a high zoom.

OH used to have that camera and got some brilliant pics with his. He says hold your breath as you press the shutter button as they are quite sensitive! Love the mouse pic! I have some lovely baby squirrel pics but have fallen out with Photobucket as it refuses to load them for me.

Thanks pmp.... Tripod is what I was thinking those in the know may say! Up until now I would have never even bothered to consider it, but if I can get some really lovely pics from the camera I now have by using that... Then I really think I will. I had such fun today, just playing around. I particularly like the first pic I've posted, and am amazed at the clarity of the last, with this I was at the other end of a 12 x 12 stable!

If you don't fancy carting a tripod around, which, lets face it takes a lot of spontaneity out of photography, you could get a small monopod. Much easier to carry and works nearly as well.

Editted to add: here you go and a massive price range http://www.amazon.co.uk/Monopods-Tripods-Accessories-Photography/b?ie=UTF8&node=1104572

Wow! Thank you!! I'm all revved up now!!! I actually have a tripod somewhere that ways my grandfathers, but I'm not sure where... If I can't find it, this will be really useful. Thanks :)
