Tripods

Any digital photographer aiming to get high-quality images is going to need a tripod at some point. While fast shutter speeds can eliminate some of the natural shakiness of our world, using a tripod for camera stability offers ultimate control over the crispness of your shots. You may think your shooting style doesn't require a firm support, but you'd be surprised at how a quality tripod can reduce vibration and result in sharper digital images.

Automatically blurry

The automatic features of your digital camera might be working against you. If you're shooting in a low-light environment or have elected to turn the flash off, your camera will try to compensate by either increasing the shutter speed or opening the aperture to allow more light in. If you aren't steady during these longer exposures, blurring occurs. While the LCD preview on most cameras can allow you to catch this problem early, wouldn't you rather get the shot right the first time? Also, setting your camera manually can help, but you might miss that perfect shot while you're busy messing around with your camera's menu.
