Hmm have you tried using flash? Perhaps someone with more camera knowledge than I can download the photo and check the details which tells them the exposure, focal length, ISO and other settings used to take the photo. Your camera seems good enough to take decent photos without blurring.
Sorry for being a photo-nazi, I just want to see this thing in all its glory
