Maybe yes, maybe no.

What lens and what aperture are you using?
What ISO is the camera set for?

P&S cameras have very small focal length lenses and no mirror to bounce. So you can get away with much slower shutter speeds and actually have poor technique and still get acceptable pictures. A good rule of thumb for shutter speeds is to have 1/2X focal length. So for a 50mm lens you should shoot at 1/100 or faster. For a 200mm lens use 1/400 or faster. If the lens has VR you can get away with a little slower shutter speed. Also increase your ISO even in daylight so you can have a faster shutter speed. Also if your lens has VR you should wait a second or two before fully pressing the shutter to allow the VR elemnt to settle down.

Good luck,
Len
