because higher mega-pixels means it's better, right?

if you say your pictures are turning out blurry, you are most likely shooting with too little light for the speed of your shutter (or you are shaking..a lot)

so for starters, if you are shooting in low light (that includes indoors)..try a stable surface, or a tripod.

assuming your camera is set to auto everything mode, that should do just fine for you.

if you are shooting in lots of light, and it comes out blurry, stop running with the camera, it cant focus like that as its not made to

Could you post one or two? It could be a camera setting or your technique, but it's hard to tell until we see. Don't be embarrassed, we've all taken a crappy shot or two.
