Camera shake vs off focus
how do i tell if the blur photo is due to camera shake/handshake or the photo is off focus. both cases look the same to me

phew exhaustive weekend! nice..
hmm, to me, camera shake would have a trail of the subject. Off focus are just simply blur subjects.

As what dennic said, but let me put it slightly differently.

With handshake, you see the eye lashes, but instead of x number of eye lashes, there may be x times 2 number of eyelashes.
Having said that, if the hand shake is very mild, it may simulate out of focus. A gross example of handshake is double images.

For off focus pictures, at least some parts of the picture will be sharp. The focus is usually on the background so it will be sharp while the subject/foreground is blur.
For camera shake, the whole picture is blur and it is quite difficult to find anything that is sharp.

#1 see how sharp the pink petal on the top portion of the image is?
Likewise #2 the bright spot at the right lower corner. If hand shake you might see a double image.

if i didnt remember wrongly, the flower was maybe ard 10cm or so and i also used the macro function. im using fz-5. how near is near? normally when i take photos, i agar-agar, but dont think this is the correct way im trying to learn the proper way =)
