Is This A Battery Issue Or Do I Need A New Camera?

22 March 2013 - 03:20 PM

I am obviously not a photographer! I bought a used Olympus SP-800UZ 30x Optical Zoom 14 megapixel about 2 years ago. I have a newborn now and all of a sudden my camera is taking really blurry, dark/ orange colored photos. I'm taking all my baby pictures with my stupid phone!!!
Anything I have found online about this camera talks about blurry photos when using the zoom, but this is happening for shots that I'm not using this feature. My husband, also not a photographer, suggested that maybe the battery has stopped getting a good charge and therefor the shutter speed is low? I'm considering buying a new battery, but I don't want to spend the money on one unless I have a good shot of this being my issue. Please help! My memories of my son's infancy depend on it! tongue.gif
