I have an old digital camera (A Fuji Finepix 6900Z) that, in automatic mode, tends to produce extremely blurry images, especially under slightly darker lighting conditions, most of the time but not all the time - in the example below, nine out of ten shots came out blurry, and one half-way okay (I was moving while taking the images). I did not use a Flash.
The less light there is, the more consistently bad the quality becomes, always with the characteristic blurring as if a huge exposure time were set.

I am positive that this has not been this way all the time, and began at some specific point a few months ago; however, I didn't change any settings, and with the camera being in automatic mode, I seem to have no further options that I could influence. The behaviour occurs in all image resolutions and qualities. As far as I can see, the camera has a "reset settings" function only for administrative functions (like date/time).
Might anybody with experience be able tell whether this is a common sign of decay in aging camera hardware, or name some typical misconfiguration that could be the culprit?
