Question Quality pictures ?

I have a Samsung S730 digital camera for work and every time I take a picture of my corals and tank, it is blurry. What can I do?

Not familiar with that camera, but does it have a manual focus mode? What about a macro mode?

In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

Your camera has a manual and macro mode. What happens in auto mode is it focuses on the front of the tank. Most cameras today will lock the focus when the button is pushed half way down, then move closer to the tank the same distance as the subject. Also Plexi glass will always look fuzzy compared to glass.
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
