Question about Olympus Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I can not get my camera to take clear pictures. They look blurry and the flash sometimes not make the picture as light as it should. I have spent many hours playing the the camera and reading the manuel just to become more frustrated. Is there a way to take the camera back to manufacture default and start over.

    What model camera do you have? The procedure to reset to defaults differs from camera to camera.

To reset the camera, put camera in camera mode, press menu and the reset should be on the left.

Also if you have the image stabilizer on, turn it off.

The last thing is the most digital cameras do have a break in period as far as the user is concerned. The user was use to another camera and has not got use to the workings of the new camera. To get over this in the new digital cameras is to do "soft press" on the shutter button rather than a hard quick press. Just relax you finger on the shutter just as a sniper does with a gun. You are able to keep the camera steady longer even after you have taken the picture. The digital camera of today not only opens the shutter and closes it but it also captures focus, sets the exposure value, and determines iso sensitivity. When you do a hard fast press on the shutter, the camera is being overworked and may take about 2 to 3 seconds to take a picture. I have seen this especially on Sony and Pentax cameras. Slow down and the picture is taken quicker.

The pictures come out blurry and not close up.


The problem occurs when the mode in which you are taking picture is not appropriate. You should change your mode based on surrounding conditions and not on your mode. It you are having lack of light than you should select the night option if you are not having lights or flash available. .

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:)

Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.

Pictures are blurry


this is a symbol for a low light condition. Either increase the light by opening curtains using in-direct light or just use a flash.

Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this.

Red light continually flashes, and won't take picture


I have seen this problem on the ex-s880 casio camera a few times sometimes you can go into the setup menu and reset the camera to default and that some times fixes it. it that does not work I have had to replace the flash circuit on the camera because the large compasitor is out and needs tobe replaces most likely this is your problem because of the flashing LED. Hope this helps its a great camera also you might want to check with casio because this should be covered under warrenty. If the camera was not dropped.

Fuzzy pictures


The blurry pictures are due to movement. Sometimes adjusting the flash helps.

The pictures I take with my Kodak digital camera are not clear


One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below. The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model. The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures. The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range. The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.) You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error. The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
