You can use the steady shot function on the camera to stabilize the camera in situations where there's a lot of shake.
Or you can turn off the steady shot function when using a tripod for stability.
To turn on the steady shot function, on the LCD screen touch MENU then Camera/Audio.
Touch the entry for Steady Shot and then touch one of the three options:
- Standard - to activate steady shot and stabilize the camera, which is the setting you'll use most often
- Active - to apply a more powerful steady shot effect, for situations where shaking is more severe
- Off - to turn off steady shot, for situations where the camera is very stable such as on a tripod (although leaving steady state in the standard mode is also OK in this situation)
