It may possible that the sp series cameras with 20x zoom. But if the cars are moving, you may not capture a clear pic.

Blurry pictures


Is your camera in the macro mode?
There's a slide switch on the end of the camera, near the USB slot. Slide it from the flower to the mountain, then take a picture of something at least three meters (ten feet) away. Is it still blurry?

My camera only takes pictures at 5 to 10 feet away


Apparently your camera is set to its macro mode. I can't tell you how to take it out of that mode since you neglected to specify the make and model of your camera. Please refer to your camera manual for how to take it out of that mode.
If you need further assistance, reply to this post and specify the make and model of your camera.

Picture once put into compoto r shows it is blurry.


If your pictures show up blurry on the computer, either they are not focused or you need to switch your camera to a larger format. When you look at a picture on a 2X2 screen, what looks clear will lose purity when you blow it up. If your pictures are 500K they will only look good when they are small. If you set the camera for 1.5MB, they will look good when they are enlarged. Compare the pictures taken by a cell phone with those taken with a 10MP camera. You will see the difference right away.

I have a canon powershot sx20..looking through the view finder looks blurry,but after takingt the picture and looking on the screen the picture does NOT look blurry...It's only blurry when looking through...


Your camera is equipped with a optical diopter that will allow you to adjust the optics in the viewfinder to your eye. meaning bringing everything into focus as it should. The way I use this (set it) is to let the camera auto focus on a subject and then turn the diopter until I see the subject clearly.
It really helps if the subject is about 12 feet away (get it real sharp) and the camera is mounted on a tripod. Once set I put a little dot of paper white out on the diopter adjustment knob so if it gets turned I know and can quickly return it to the correct spot. I'm including a diagram where this adjustment knob is on your camera, have fun.

Pictures are dark with flash


How far away are you from the target when taking the picture? Most of these point and shoot camera's have a recommended distance from the focus point of the picture in or around 6-8 feet. Once going beyond 10ft, you will rarely get the full lighting from the flash.

The flash and picture are out of sync.


If your flash has worked properly in the past, the camera may need to be serviced. If your subject is within 6 - 8 feet and is not being properly illuminated, something needs to be adjusted or replaced.

By specification, your flash will only adequately illuminate subjects out to 14 feet (wide angle) or 10 feet (telephoto). If you're trying to shoot subjects further away than that, the flash is not bright enough.

Picture Pixelates


You need more light in your scene. The camera will take a lower resolution picture, when the light is low. Blowing it up just accents the low resolution.

Flash will not "fire".


The camera has a "motion detector". And is generally for taking pictures automatically whenever a "subject", such as wild game, come within the detector.
That flash is for taking pictures of subjects less than 12 ft away and not a darkened area beyond 12 ft.

If you are using it to automatically capture in the evening, then point the camera lower, like to the ground 12 ~ 20 feet away. It will shoot some nice, but somewhat grainy pictures!

If you are holding the camera to take pictures, it wasn't designed for that, but it will work for "close" shots.

Blurry pictures


You have to take pictures maybe 20 feet away. You may want to test the scope by plugging the camera into your computer and take pictures so they're instantly downladed on your PC so you can get an idea of whatthe range is. Yes, this camera is cheap, but what can you expect for less tha $15
