Nikon d5100 Blurry photos When I take photos of a party, at night, my photos are very blurry. How can I fix..


Use autofocus if you have a AF lens on it.

Usually you get a kit 18-55 AF lens that has a A/M switch on the side. The switch should be facing the A side so it's set on autofocus. Then you have 9 points on your viewfinder, those are the autofocus points. It should usually be set to center, because you usually want the object in center of your photo to not be blurry.
Remember to press the shutter button halfway and give some time for the autofocus to focus. Then you can press it all the way, you should have your photos nice and clear.

If you happen to have a manual focus lens, you should be watching through the viewfinder and turning the focus ring on the lens and determine if your object is in focus. It's hard at night, but get some practice at home when you have some more light so you get more familiar with the focus.

MY CAMERA (CANON 1000D) TAKES BEAUTIFUL DAYTIME PHOTO'S BUT CAN'T SEEM TO FOCUS ON A SUBJECT IN LOW LIGHT & AS A RESULT WONT TAKE THE SHOT. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO TAKE LOW LIGHT / NIGHT TIME SHOTS ?...


Focusing in low light can be difficult for the autofocus system and sometimes you will need to use the manual focus, you can select the magnified image and see if that helps
See the online manual - page98 refers to how to magnify the image - using the magnify button - changes between 5X 10X and full screen
To help the camera autofocus there is an assist beam - this takes the form of flashes from flash to help the AF system focus - make sure it is ON - there is a custom function full details on Page 157 C.Fn III: Auto focus/Drive 6 AF-assist beam firing

Nikon D300 - Auto focus point won't move. Autofocus doesn't work.


The lock that's around the 4-way button that moves the AF point will stop it from moving. The AF switch (says C,S,M) on the body below the lens release button gets knocked to manual and turns off the AF

Canon 400D. Autofocus problem


(facing the LCD screen towards you, as if you're going to take a photo) there's a button in the upper right-hand corner that will allow
you to AF to a certain point (9-pts total) or the center, or all 9-points, maybe you have it set to one point and it's off center??
definitely sounds like a camera setting probelm
just a thought

AUTO FOCUS


I had the same problem and I thought it was the lense. The problem was the camera focus set up. You can spot focus on one of 5 points or take an average reading of all points. If you don't have the center point set you will take out of focus photos most of the time. Read your manual about AF and how to set it. It is easy to bump the zone focus button and rotate the dial by accident. John

Suddenly it doesn`t focus


try resetting your camera. In record mode press menu. go to setup tab go up to reset press right arrow highlight reset press set. If that doesn't work Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Tell them what's going on and that you would like to send it in for repairs. If they ask just lie and tell them you already talked to tech support. LOL

Beginners question : Autofocus


In the custom settings, you can program the "ok" button of the 4-way controller to disable AF. It's kind of a handy little trick. It's called "Ok button when shooting" or something.

Focus on a particular subject


If the camera is having trouble doing an auto focus you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance away from you, and then move the camera back to your original subject and take your picture without losing that focus. First turn the camera on and locate the AutoFocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away from you as the subject that the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, move the camera back to include the subject you originally wanted in the image, then press the shutter fully. (Please see page 20 in the D-425 Advanced Manual in Section 2, under the heading titled “If Correct Focus Cannot Be Obtained”, for a more detailed explanation. This Advanced Manual is provided on a separate CD, in Adobe PDF format.)
