Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
there might be a close up or super close up setting on your camera!.!.!.i have an Olympus and on mine the setting is a tulip looking flower!.!.!.check your manual!.!.!.

other than that, if it's still blurry i would say you need a camera with a higher resolution (more mega pixels)Www@QuestionHome@Com

Your camera is not really equipped for true close up/macro photography!. But, what your doing wrong is that you are exceeding the minimum focus distance for your lens!. Your lens has a minimum distance that it needs to lock focus!. If you get to close, the camera can't focus properly!.

Because your camera does not have a manual focus option or the ability to change lenses to a better macro lens suitable for close up work, what you need to do is see if you can get a close up filter for your camera!. They are cheep, they act like magnifying glasses for your lens!. That will allow you to get closer with less focusing issues!.

The close up setting on your camera changes the f-stop of the the picture, blurring the background, and making the foreground subject sharper!. try using this setting with the close-up filters!.

If this still doesn't work, and you still want to take close-up picture, by a SLR camera and an inexpensive 50mm macro lens!. You will take the best close up pictures you could imagine!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

I took a look at your camera's specifications, and using your macro setting (usually a flower picture), your focal length is 5 cm!. So if you're trying to get any closer than that, it's always going to be blurry!. The focal length on auto mode is 80 cm!. I'm not sure if you're able to change your auto focus settings or not, but if you can, switch it to center!.!.!.!.which may help your camera focus on the foreground as opposed to the background!.

Your camera has a 'Macro' mode!. You will find it among your camera's 11 scene modes!. also mount the camera on a tripod and make sure you have good lighting!.

You have a choice Macro and Auto Macro!. Check your user manual (page 23) for help on using Macro!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You need to maunually focus your camera, which may help, or if there is a creative setting adjust it for a limited depth of field!.

Do a google search on aperature settings and shutter speed and you will quickly see what I mean!.

Good luck!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You either manually focus your camera, or invest in some really good equipment, and a macro lens!. Www@QuestionHome@Com
