yes i am a camera novice. i have a nikon coolpix 5200 digital camera and even reading through the manual i still havent managed to get any real sharp focused pictures out of it.i am not sure if the camera is faulty or it just needs setting up correctly? i was just wondering if any of you forum members have any advice or tips on getting pin sharp photos(apart from saying buy a good camera ) lol. what sort of settings on the camera should i be using? also am i better to use manual focus rather than auto focus? any help would be greatly appreciated.
