No, the focus was fine, the camera could not be held steady enough to take a good picture. I was using the flash in auto mode, but the shutter speed was was just too slow for crisp images. If I really tried I could have take a few shots per page and at least one of them would have worked, but really what I needed was a tripod mount.
