Some pictures that I take are blurry

In low lighting conditions, the camera might compensate for the lack of exposure by using a slower shutter speed. If you move
the camera before the shutter clicks, the picture might be blurry. If the camera is using a slower shutter speed, an exclamation
point indicator appears at the bottom of the screen.

Depending on your BlackBerry® device model, you might be able to decrease the blurriness in pictures that is caused by slight
movements of the camera by turning on image stabilization in the camera options.

The flash dims or turns off

If the camera has a flash, and the battery power level drops below 20 percent, the flash dims to conserve battery power. In
cold temperatures, when the battery power level drops below 20 percent, the flash might turn off.

Some features are not available on my device

The availability of certain features on your BlackBerry® device might be affected by items such as your device model and

prevent you from using some features or options. If your administrator has set an option for you, a red lock indicator appears
beside the option field.
