Photography Question

Why Are My Nighttime Pics Always Fuzzy?

I can take a picture with my digital camera during the day or inside in a well lighted area and the picture is nice and sharp, but when I take a picture in a somewhat darker setting or outside at night even under a light the image is fuzzy. I have a Fuji A101, why am I having this trouble?

  I don't know anything about that particular camera but off hand it sounds like you're having problems with noise, which is like grain on film, at higher asa settings. Noise is also a problem with digital when a picture is slightly underexposed. Don't know what else to say without looking at a picture.

  If you are not using a tripod it could be camera shake, use a tripod and see if it makes a difference. I use a tripod or monopod as often as possible, even in daylight.

Scott Pedersen   Yep, same as above. on you LCD it should say procesing image. it takes some time to accoplish this at night. the camera must remain absulultly still unitl it is done.
