How do you take a picture of something moving with olmpus sp 800 with out being blared

Move the camera with the subject and snap the picture. You can set the the speed and the aperture to accommodate the problem. You can also set the focus to the center of the view finder and isolate the subject that way. Mind you if you do what I have described the background will be un-focus. This is a great affect of isolating the subject while in motion. Good Luck!

When you take off the lens and fire off a shot, does the mirror go up and return or does it stay up? If not, is it possible that it is staying up when the lens is connected? When you fire a shot, can you hear it returning?

Connected a cable release the first operation of which has caused the shutter to "freeze". Error message reads r07. Display screen showing other functions such as auto focus, exposure readings,file size,...

1. Try removing the lens, fire off a few shots to confirm the mirror flips up and the shutter opens. 2. If that doesn't work, go into the menu and find "reset".

I have been given a olmpus fe-270. It was bought in china so has chinese on the display menu. Can i change it to english please

From either the Shooting or Playback mode, select the Setup menu (the wrench and hammer icon). Select the talking head (should be the fourth item). From there you can select the language for on-screen display. Be aware that available languages depend on where you purchased the camera, so English may not be available.

Blury Display on FE140

It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.

Can't take picture with monitor off?

When the LCD display is "off" the focus mode is automatically switched to "Single AF" mode (since there is no way for the user to confirm that the proper subject is focused) and unless focus is locked the camera cannot fire. When the camera is in "Continuous AF" Focus mode the camera will take a picture whenever the shutter release button is pressed, wether or not the subject is in focus. You can take a photo with the monitor off, but the camera will have to lock focus before it can fire and will not respond as quickly as with the monitor on.
