This is taken with a Canon S90 that's just been refurbished. Is it me or shouldn't this be sharper. I'm really haven't been satisfied with this camera and it's suppose to be a good one.
Probably me.

There are many factors that affect how sharp an image is and most of them have to do with technique.

Most lenses are sharpest 2 stops from wide open, for the sharpest picture the camera needs to be locked down and image stabilization turned off.

If you are going to hand hold the camera you need to have a solid base and the camera should be pressed against your face to provide stability and vibration reduction.

Having said all that how sharp a picture is doesn't have anything to do with how good a picture is. I would concentrate on composition and light and work on making interesting pictures before I got real concerned about how sharp my camera was.



BTW
If you want to test your camera set it to f8 and point it at a newspaper tacked up to a wall. With the camera on a good solid tripod take some pics in good light and then see how sharp the text is.
