    Default Can't understand why pics are blurred

    when I take the pic of something that is moving himself with my galaxy s4 , 90% came out blurred! I've tried the galaxy s2 of my girlfriend and with that even if I take a photo of a running man it come out perfectly! I can't understand!

    Check your camera settings. There are several things you might want to look at (ISO settings, and there is also a scene mode specifically for sports). I'm sure there are other things someone with more photography experience can point out. It might also be worth your while to read this article. It's about the GS3 camera but should be similar to your GS4's camera:

    If you take a picture of something moving you need a fast shutter speed to "freeze" the motion so it won't be blurred. If you shoot a picture in bright light the camera will use a fast shutter speed. If the light is not so bright, the camera will slow down the shutter speed to let in more light and you may get blur from motion. One thing you could try would be to set the flash so it will be forced to fire; the flash may help freeze motion.

    Another thing I've found that caused blurry pics... there seems to be a fraction of a lag between pressing the shutter button and the actual shutter taking the photo. It's just enough sometimes that I think I've taken a rock solid shot, only to find I press the shutter then moved the camera, causing a worthless shot. It doesn't happen every time and I'm guessing it is a function of overall system load at the time. Just another tip to be aware of.

    It's almost certainly the settings and inherent limitations of a cellphone camera system.

    I don't know that I've fixed it but I've learned to go back to my camera days and squeeze the shutter, not poke, and to hold the phone still for just a moment after shooting.
