Hello, please ignore any english errors, its not my native language.

So, i recently bought a S8000fd and i noticed that the pictures are very noisy and sometimes blurry, i googled a review for my camera and i found the review in this site:
http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/fuji/finepix_s8000fd-review/

The quality of my pictures are very similar to this example:

and its even worse in darker places


I tried to change the ISO value but it's stuck in AUTO no matter what i do, i really want a perfect quality, like this:

Anyone here know how can i change the ISO value to have a better quality in my photos?

thanks you. :)

"Stuck" on auto ISO means you're in an idiot mode that doesn't allow you to change the ISO. You need to be in P, A, S, M, or one of those scene modes that actually does let you change ISO. I forget which one(s) allow that. Reading your manual will tell you which modes allow which settings.

And you're not going to get perfect quality in low light. The camera chooses a high ISO in auto ISO because a high ISO is needed to avoid blur...and sometimes you STILL get blur because it's so dark.
