The files were recovered from my SD card and they were both jpeg and raw files. I'm not sure what program was used, I'll have to check my laptop when I get home.

I was thinking about this last night, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but if I had the camera set to Manual focus mode wouldn't that mean that some of my photo's would be REALLY out of focus considering the distance to the subject changed quite a lot through the day? If so, then that can't be the problem, as every photo is out of focus by the same amount.

Sorry make that from 1/80 to 1/1600

That's a good suggestion. However, I'm pretty sure it was on AF as I remember feeling the lens move when I half pressed the button. But I will test my camera again when I get home tonight and see if that could have been the problem. Thanks for your help.

As I was doing a portraiture shoot, I wanted to be able to control my DOF. I realise that with a very quick shutter speed I can 'freeze' movement, but that's not what I was going for. My ISO was set to 400 as I found the shutter speed to be too slow and resulted in movement blur. So depending on the light at the time my shutter speeds ranged from 1/80 to 1/400 or so.

When I said they all have a slight blur, I mean that there is nothing in any of the photo's that is sharp. When you zoom in on the photo, it's all just slightly out of focus. It's almost as though the camera is focusing just in front or behind the subject (I think, maybe?). I did forget to mention that my aperture never went above F5 (ie: I was generally using F4 - F5). Hope that helps, and thanks for your help. I can't attach any photo's to my question though, sorry.

Thank you mattdm that is definitely something to consider in the future, but I don't know if that could be the reason for all of the photo's though as I didn't do that for many of them.
