Photography digital camera malfunctioning

I am facing three problems with my PDR-M11. A. All my pictures come out "foggy" I have cleaned the lens with cotton buds, but no improvement. B. It is almost imposible to transfer my photos to my computer; when I try to open the camera or the Camio viewer in Image Expert it says it does not find the camera. I have checked all the possibilities ( cable, USB ports,etc) and my procedures are right. Have dis-installed the driver and Image Expert and re-installed both many times without success.Maybe one in 100 attempts works. At least I was able to transfer my photos with a card reader, but Now... C. A new one has arised. When turned ON, my PDR-M11 shows "processing" in the LCD monitor and nothing else. It is like frozen and the only thing I can reach is the Setup menu. It is not possible to open Photography mode or the Playback mode, not to mention the PC mode. It does no let me try anything to solve the problem What should I do?? This camera has never had a shock or hit or fallen in any way. I have keept it for my own use and is 5 years old. Thank you very much for your interest and answers. Aldovera

Hi this is common problem if your sure that these batterys are new and you have used that make and type of battery before than the problem will be on the board of the camera itself.
If these batterys are ones you have not used in your camera before then the chances are these batterys are just not powerfull enough so you can by a recharge pack for your camera ok so let me know if its new batterys and if you have used this type before.

Also insted of using the lcd can you turn the screen of then try taking picture using normal view finder as you would on a none digital cam

It could just be that the batterys you brought are faulty and might be worth trying another set before giving up.
These camera usuall wont switch on with normal batterys so just try another set or if you have let me know.
If the battery says low bat then goes off then these batterys will not work if tryed again but if you can get camera on turn off the screen then try taking picture ok get back to me and let me know ok

Hi Judy, thanks for coming to FixYa.
Sorry no one has gotten to you sooner. Your manual mentions this and this is what it says to do:

Turn the camera on and move the lens cover switch to the open. Then your camera should operate normally. Let me know if that helps.

WHY ARE MY PICTURES BLURED IN THE CENTWER?


Dis you check the front lens? is it still clean and shiny?
Only clean a lens with a lens pen or tools special made for lenses. Normal cloth, and paper for sure can scratch the lens. The coating on a camera lens is very delicate and needed for the quality of every shot.

Hello, I have fuji finepix F50fd camera. It suddenly takes blurred pictures. The lens is clean and there are no messages on the screen. Can't remeber dropping it or damaging it in any way. Regards, Sofia


Welcome to FixYa.

There are three reasons why do you get a blurred images.

1. The camera lens is dirty
- clean the lens with soft and dry cloth
2. AF frame (lit red) and !AF appeared when taking pictures.
- check the focus on the subject and take pictures
3. A small camera icon appeared when taking pictures
- It may cause camera shae. Hold the camera steadily.Use flash photography. A tripod may be recommended, depending on the scene and mode.

Feel free to send us comments or suggestions if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hazy pictures on digital zoom and blueish cast


There are three possible causes for an hazy picture:

1. The lens is fogged:

Sometimes when you come out of an air-conditioned room, the camera is exposed to a sudden change in temperature. This causes a temporary fog inside the lens housing. If you snap a picture through this foggy lens, the picture will not be sharp and can lead to unwanted color casts on the picture. This situation can be avoided. Someone in a photography forum stated "Before going to the outside, put the lens in a ziplock bag and leave it outside till the body temperature of the gear changes to the outside temperature. When it does, take it out and use it, this way it will not fog up because there is no sudden change (to the gear) temperature wise."


2. A possible fungi on the lens surface:

When you use the camera in damp environments, there are a lot of chances of fungal growth on the lens surfaces. Fungus is a living organism that sometimes prefer to make your lens as it's home! Moisture supports its living and their presence really affect the image quality. You can avoid fungal growth by adding a small bag of Silica Gel to your camera bag. Silica Gel is a good absorbant and will absorb any moisture in the camera bag. But do regularly change the Silica Gel with a new pack. Do not store your camera inside a leather casing if you don't have to. Leather is a good material that can preserve the moisture. Always store your camera in a dry place.


3. Dirty lens:

Obviously you know the solution for this!
Just make sure you use only a piece of leather to clean the lens. Leather will not scratch your lens.


As for the blue cast on the pictures, it is the ultraviolet rays that casts the unwanted color. If you live in a sunny weather, this is not unusual. UV filters will solve this issue and is cheap too. UV filters also act a lens protector!

Hope these help you! Good luck!

Resolution


Use the resolution button on the top of the camera by the LCD display. One button is for selecting Flash. One button is for the self-timer. The middle button is for resolution. Press the button repeatedly to cycle through the options.

Blurry Pictures


There are several factors that can contribute to getting better focus and improved results. 1. Auto Focus / Auto Exposure lock. Press the shutter button down HALF WAY. The camera will attempt to adjust exposure to the current lighting environment for maximum benefit. Then the camera will automatically correct the focus based on objects in the center of the display. If the camera can automatically set the focus and exposure, the LED by the viewfinder will turn GREEN. If the camera can not adjust the settings automatically, the LED will turn RED. This process usually takes about two to three seconds. 2. Be sure not to cover the sensor on the front of the camera with your finger. This will disable the automatic focus and exposure controls. 3. Rely on the Rear LCD Display. When in doubt, trust the LCD. The LCD will display the subject more accurately than the viewfinder. This will help with "framing" the subject, or determining if you have enough light for proper exposure. 4. Motion can cause a "blur" effect. Either motion of the subject, or motion by the photographer. This phenomenon is just like traditional photography. Moving objects may appear to blur, and this will be even more evident in lower lighting situations as the shutter speed slows down to allow for more light. The shutter will react faster in bright light, and motion will not be as apparent.

No Picture


1. If you are using TIFF mode for uncompressed images, the camera takes much longer to process the image because of the very large file size. It takes longer between shots and longer to play back a TIFF image. The TIFF setting on the camera Top LCD Display is 'No Stars' (One Star = Basic, Two Stars = Normal, Three Stars = High Resolution, No Stars = be patient for TIFF). Unless you are doing professional images, we suggest that you use the normal or high resolution JPG settings (Two or Three Stars / FULL) for good results. 2. If the camera can not focus on a subject, or can not determine the appropriate exposure setting, the camera will beep and disable the shutter button. This is to avoid improper processing of the image. This is usually due to either poor lighting conditions or movement. 3. The camera Flash Element requires ten seconds to recharge between images. Although the camera is ready to continue capturing images almost immediately in bright (daylight) settings, if you are using Flash photography the Flash element will need to charge between shots. 4. The batteries may be running low. LCD Display, Flash, and Playback use much more power than taking pictures. It is possible to quickly consume battery power, even if you are not taking many pictures. Try turning the Mode Dial to the OFF position to recycle power. If the camera beeps and will not take a picture under normal conditions, you may need to change batteries.

Only us the MACRO MODE for CLOSE-UP photography. Be sure to use MACRO MODE if you are taking pictures of an object at less than six inches away. Be sure not to use Macro Mode for Normal Photography. Using MACRO MODE improperly will result in poor focus (also known as 'fuzzy pictures').
