You didn't answer my question so am asking again...all my pictures are dark and blurry - help


There are two possible problems:

1. The camera is defective.
2. Operator error.

In most cases, #2 is the answer. Digital cameras are convenient, but are sensitive. They have very bright flash units and often wash out the picture that you are trying to take, especially if the item is reflective, you are close to it, and taking the shot straight on. Thus, many users turn the flash off to get the picture to look better. Now the camera has to work differently. In order to get the right amount of light to get a good picture, it will slow down the shutter response. This lets more light onto the CCD and results in a brighter picture without the flash. BUT, the slower speed means that you must be very still in order to prevent blurring, and many users cannot get the hang of it. Also, some cameras do not adjust well to lower light and thus are not only blurry, but dark as well. Try shooting different scenes, indoor as well as outdoor, short, mid and long range in different lighting conditions. If everything is dark and blurry, regardless of the situation, then as a last resort, have another person try to take a few shots. If they are no better at it, then blame the camera. Otherwise, just practice with it until you get good at it. Some cameras are more user-friendly than others.

I'm using the sports mode and all my shots are blurry and orange


It may just be too dark for action photography. Try turning your ISO up to 1000+. Set your computer in Tv (Time Priority Mode). Use the top wheel to adjust the shutter time to something like 200 or greater. Keep an eye on the aperture value. If it starts flashing, you don't have enough light to support your settings.

My shutter speed is very slow and when I take pictures I think when it's dark is when I notice the problem but the picture will not take. Also if someone moves their face is blurry.


What mode are you shooting in? It seems you may either have your shutter speed set manually to a slow speed or, alternatively you have set your apperture set to a high number e.g f/20 or there abouts. Because this is a very narrow apperture the camera will compensate by using a slow shutter speed.
Try some shots in fully automatic mode and see what happens. With a slow shutter speed you can expect any movement to produce blurred images.

Pictures are blurry


There are a few things to consider:

-- Are your hands steady as you take the shot, and are you moving the camera before the shutter actually clicks? As a test, put the camera down on a table top and take a picture without moving the camera until well after the shutter clicks. If the resulting image is not blurry--you just proved that your holding technique needs improvement!

--This camera has image stabilization to help you deal with camera shake--do you have this feature turned on in the menu?

--If your subjects are moving and your shutter speed is slow (meaning that the shutter stays open a relatively long time to gather enough light) then you will get blur. And, even if your subject is not moving but the shutter speed is slow, then your camera shake will come back to haunt you.

To fix slow shutter speed, you can either use a flash to freeze the action, or you can manually increase the ISO setting to a higher number, or you can choose a preset like "sports" which will tell the camera you want faster shutter speeds. A higher ISO setting will allow for faster shutter speeds, but it can also result in a grainy look, called "noise" if you set it too high.

Most likely it is your holding technique and the setting you are choosing that is causing the blur. If you are in decently bright light outdoors, you hold your camera steady and wait for the shutter to click, and you have image stabilization on, then you should have sharp pictures. If you are indoors, expect to need a flash.

My sony dsc t100 cyber shot seems to have a slow shutter speed and the pictures are blurry. I have tried multipel settings. I can hear it "c l i c k" very slow even in burst mode. Was wondering if it could...


Use Focus Lock.

Not applicable for the E-series digital cameras.
The shutter is delayed because of the additional flashes. In turn, make sure the picture's subjects wait for the additional flashes.

Blurry pictures


You're both right. The pictures are blurry because the shutter speed is too slow, but it's too slow because there isn't enough light for it to be faster. Try this: Set the ISO to 800 Set the camera at shutter priority mode, and enter 1/160 for wide angle to mid-zoom, and 1/400 for full zoom. If the pictures come out too dark ( and you're too far to use the flash ), you can always brighten them on the computer. But if they're blurry, you can't really fix that.

Pictures have come out blurry and out of focus


The most common problems that most new users encounter are: 1. Trying to focus closer than @7 ft. when zooming at greater than 6x. The camera won't do it, and that zoom is tempting. 2. Not waiting for the lens to focus before completing the shutter press. Try holding the shutter at half-press until you see the steady green indicator, then gently press fully to take the shot while holding as steady as you can. 3. Expecting too much from OIS. If you're seeing the "jitter" icon a lot, that means that you're into the range of slower shutter speeds that OIS might not be able to compensate for.You might try switching to a higher ISO speed (or turning on more lights)-- yes there will be more noise, but it'll quicken the shutter speed, and a non-blurry pic that's noiser is better than a clean blurry one. . . and you'll learn a little about what you're camera will do under different conditions. Also, you have to really make the effort to hold the cam steady, even with OIS, especially when using slow shutter speeds.
