Re: camera focus is messed up

How old is the Camera? If under a year return it via retailer If over a year contact the Technical Support team at Vivitar. It seems like a damage to me however in which case new camera - repairs will not be an economic proposition

I have Nikon coolpix L110 and when there is any movement it is blurry

Unfortunately I have seen this happen on the newer models of Nikon compared to the older ones when pictures were crisp. Set the camera to a higher shutter speed , try not to use auto. If you are using auto then press down and let the focus come to stay before you click on. I think there is a delay for the focus to come on which makes it a little out of focus. So hold button midway let the green come on in the screen to pressit to click.
Your pictures will come corrrect now.

How to improve picture quality of Digital Camera

Slow down the shutter speed of your digital camera. Whenever you must take a photo in a low light environment decrease your shutter speed. It is virtually impossible to take a blurry digital photo with a an extremely slow shutter speed. Even if your digital camera has an automatic or semi-automatic mode, slowing down the shutter speed will still produce a better digital photo. <br /> Wait until your digital camera is completely focused. Most digital cameras will notify you that they are focus ready by a blinking light, on screen indicator or a noise. Confirm that your digital camera has locked onto your desired target before pressing the shutter release button. Some digital cameras may have trouble focusing on subjects easily. If this happens use an auto focus mode to produce a better digital photo. <br /> Prevent your digital camera from shaking. Shaky hands or sudden movement will definitely produce a blurry digital photo. When holding your digital camera, make sure the viewfinder is firmly pressed against your face before snapping a digital photo. If you do not have image stabilization on your digital camera, then think about investing in a tripod. This will allow you to steady your digital camera for the perfect shot. <br /> Make sure the digital image is definitely a blurry one and not just a soft image. On many occasions soft images are mistaken for blurry ones. Soft images occur often with digital cameras. When printing these images, the softness rarely shows through. You will be able to easily edit these photos by sharpening the details for a better printing experience. <br /> Take your time. Instead of rushing to take a digital photo, set aside enough time to shoot your image. Hurrying up will not produce an excellent digital photo. You don't need to be overwhelmingly slow when taking the photo, but try your best not to take a hasty one.

Olympys fe-270 takes blurry pictures

Try this. Aim the camera at the person/object you want to take a picture of. Press the shutter button "HALF WAY DOWN" wait 2 seconds then complete by pressing all the way down to take the picture. The auto focus works on the "half way down" stroke. Some cameras have a light that goes from red to green to let you know the focus was completed. Or, just wait the 2 or so seconds.

My Minolta Z6 used to take clear pictures. Suddenly almost every image became is blurry. I then stored for about a year, now I have cleaned the lense to no avail. Focus l through lcd screen is also now...

I think you may be doing what I have ben doing. The auto focus beam I think emits from the small sender between the hand grip and the lense portion of the camera, ( Bad Design) When gripping the camera my fingers sometimes block the sender and causes it to be blurry as in not focused. .Try to keep your fingers from going in between the grip and lens and I think it will work for you.Let me know if this helps. I am so glad I found this out because this camera takes nice pictures.

Blurry pictures

I just checked out the canon website, there is a link there regarding the CCD image sensory advisory. They are aware of the problem of all of a sudden getting a blurry picture and will fix it for free. Just call the toll free number on the site and they will send you a free mailing label and tell you what to do. They said it will take 10 days to fix, buy hey it's free.

My camera is blurry..and it takes blurry pictures..How can i fix this?

Gently clean the lens or get it cleaned at a camera store. I suspect fingerprints on the glass. If this isn't it, the camera's infrared sensor may be malfuntioning or dirty, or the lens assembly is not functioning properly (warranty).
