DONT BUY THIS CAMERA! ITS ABSOLUTELY AWFUL, ALWAYS BREAKING AND PICTURES ARE BLURRED, NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO. I am an art student and capable photographer, this nikon is just rubbish

Please advise ... I bought a new Nikon S3300 recently and more than 50% of my pics are blurred, what could be the cause of this?

Which image stabilization it actually uses? The spec on the nikon website say it uses lens shift, not sensor shift.
