Hi, I have a new Nikon D60 and I have been tweaking and taking
some practice
shots with it and right now I have a problem. I'm shooting in
different modes,
but no matter what settings I use  all my photos seems to be
out of focus or lacking sharpness and with  noise.x(
I tried NEF(RAW) and JPEG(fine and large)and in both cases my
pictures don't come out as sharp as I expected them. I'm using
the 18-55 VR
zoom lens  that came with the kit. I was turning on and off
the camera without
turning off the VR, till yesterday when I realized that I
needed to turn off
the VR. My ISO settings has varied from 100 to 400, but mostly
100 and 200,
auto noise reduction and auto white balance. The shutter speed
has been between
1/60 to 1/250 and aperture has leaned to the open wide side(4
to 5.6, some at
8,few at 11).VR always on.The pictures have come out always
not sharp enough
and with a high noise. I used to have a D50 and the pictures
were better than
with the D60, and those were not VR lenses.
Am I doing something wrong?I need help, please.
 :(
