What is your camera settings setup?

I have been using the camera a lot more often now that we have a 6 month old acting all goofy, and the pictures aren't coming out all that great compared to what I have seen on here.

I understand there are a million different combos, I was hoping I could gather a few list of setups I could try out and see what works best for me.

Some of my photos turn out great, yet others are blurry and just crappy.

Thanks for the help.

If they're blurry, you're not focusing on the subject (maybe you're focusing on the background) or you're not holding the camera still for the full exposure time. I use Camera FV-5 Lite so I have a little control - spot focusing, exposure (shorter exposures mean less shake, smaller F-stop means deeper depth-of-field), and never hand-hold a shot if you can avoid it, lean your hand against something solid. The new Lollipop camera is supposed to give even better control.

With a 16MP camera used correctly, you should be able to blow the shots up to at least 2 or 3 feet long without noticeable blur. I used to make pretty good 8X10s with a 3MP camera.
