Hi Everyone

New user here and hope to contribute to this great forum lots as I get to grips with owning an SLR.

I believe my Nikon is faulty and here is why:

1. in auto mode it gets easily confused between the background and the foreground, 50-50 chance if you are taking a picture of a person whether the background will be in focus or the person.

2. In auto mode with no flash it takes blurry images even in great lighting, it is so difficult and no matter how still you hold it some aspect of the picture is blurry.

3. Taking picture of foliage (even with tripod) the image is ever so slightly blurry that the leaves or branches etc do not appear sharp when you zoom in photo-shop to 100% of the 14mp image

Any ideas on how I can test if I have a faulty camera or if it is me? I would have expected in auto modes the camera to take better than point and shoot images each and every click with no issues.

Thanks

Taz
