Can you help, my new sony camera keeps taking pink, blurry pictures.
I've tried all settings but it's still the same.

Hi

If you camera is less than a year old, contact Sony directly and have them fix it under warranty.

If the camera is more than a year old, you most likely have a defective CCD and will have to have it replaced. Sony will want $150 to do the repair out of warranty, but if that is the problem with the camera we have a lens repair service (the CCD is part of the lens assembly) in our store for only $70 which includes return shipping and a 45 day warranty on parts and labor!

Google: Darntoothysam com and you will find us, then just search your model number "s700" on the website, if you dont find the listing let me know.

Another option you have is to buy a defective camera online and swap out parts to make one good camera from the two.

If you decide we can help you with the repair then please let us know, thanks.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Sony Cyber-shot takes lots of blurry pictures in


first thing you can do is to try reverting cam back to factory settings.to do that initialize the camera.it's under menu>setup settings>main settings1>initialize. after initializing,set cam to auto adjustment mode (green camera icon in mode dial). what to avoid when taking pictures:
1.subject too close (use macro if needed)
2.insufficient light
3.subject movement
4.camera movement (that's caused by you)
5.incorrect camera setting
5.incorrect camera operation
btw, before you take a picture,press the shutter button halfway down first to give the cam ample time to focus.you'll see a flashing green indicator on the screen that means cam is focusing.when the indicator stops blinking cam is ready for the shot.press shutter button all the way.review your picture.if still blurry, you may try changing iso (for dark or fast moving subject, note:the greater value the noisier the picture gets), metering mode and focus settings by going to the shooting menu (press menu when your in P or program mode). hope this helps.tnx:)

My daughter tries to take pictures with her Sony Cyber-shot S650, but all she gets are blurry pictures. What can she do to fix the problem.She has been taking pictures all along with no problem.


She may have shut off the automatic setting for the flash. This will cause blurry shots in darker areas. See if her pix outside in day light are okay. If so, the main wheel on the back of your Sony (I believe it's the top of the wheel) controls the flash. Be sure that is set to on or automatic. Let me know.

Blurry pictures


Most probably you have incorrectly set your camera to a Camera Record mode other than Auto.

If there is not enough light and you are trying to photograph the scene without flash, (eg. by setting your camera mode to a mode that is programmed not to use flash) then the camera has to compensate for the missing light by keeping its shutter open for a longer period of time so as enough light comes into its sensor.

If your hand shakes during that time, you get blurry images.

Check your camera settings. The Twilight scene mode gives you slower shutter speeds to capture dark, night scenes, but you need to stabilize the camera on a tripod or something, depending on the level of light of the scene you want to photograph. The Twilight Portrait, on the other hand, is the same as Twilight with the addition of flash is used to illuminate a person or foreground subject as well as capturing a night background. This mode also keeps a long shutter time for capturing the night background.

For taking pictures of people, I would suggest you use Auto or Portrait mode where the camera will automatically use fast shutter speeds and flash (if dark).

Hope this helps.

Sony Cyber-shot Digicams - Picture Quality !?!?!?


I'm assuming you purchased a Sony as replacement. If that's the case, take it back and ask for a new one or have it checked out. Something sounds horribly wrong to me. If by chance you got one of those Chinese/Taiwanese cameras. Give it away and go back to the P72. Of course, a few hours reading the manual and playing with the camera may solve your problems. Don't try to get fancy first off. Stick with Auto modes until you get a feel for what you're doing. If you are using Auto the go back to the first sentence :-) BMW
