Can you post an example? Could be an unstable tripod or wind perhaps.

Is your auto focus off?

yes, we had the camera set up in the garage next to the window on the tripod to time lapse from the sun setting to the moon rising . we looked at the reviewed the clip and it seems the whole picture jumped while it was taping , we are going to try again but in the house to see if it happens again
