Abstract Provided is a blurring correction apparatus and image taking apparatus having the same. The blurring correction controlling section (2) determines a correction direction (deflection direction) from the blurring detected by a blurring detecting, calculating section (1) and corrects the blurring by varying a refractive index of the electric deflection member 3 in accordance with this correction direction. At this time, the electric deflection member is controlled such that, based on a result of detection by a refractive index state detecting section (4), the refractive index of the electric deflection member (3) becomes a state corresponding to the correction direction. When it is detected based on a result of detection by the refractive index state detecting section that the electric deflection member (3) is set in a correction direction, that is, becomes a desired refractive index state, the blurring correction controlling section (2) informs this state to an image taking apparatus controlling section and the image taking apparatus controlling section (6) allows an exposure device (8) to start an exposure operation.
