Are you sure you finalized the firmware upgrade procedure according to the instructions? This sounds a little like you pulled the plug a little too soon... Have you done it according to these instructions: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/OMfirm.asp And kept the camera connected until the update was 100 % complete? If you did everything right, try reseting the camera - take the batteries out for the day, and see if it helps. if you're back to step one(the reason you did the upgrade), try the firmware upgrade again. If still it doesn't work contact olympus, and I hope you have a valid warranty. Good luck

It is something that seems to be a problem with the Stylus 410s. Olympus will not repair them unless they are under warrenty, I've tried. My best advice, and what I am in the midst of myself (I have 2 of these with the same problem) is to file with the BBB. Perhaps if enough complaints come through, they will begin to fix the stylus 410 defect as they should. Good luck. =)

My Vivitar takes blurry pictures. Kindly show me what to do to sharpen the focus. Thanks.


To focus on your subject, lightly push the shutter button (the button you use to take pictures) only half way down. When you push the shutter button half way down, this auto-focuses the camera and you can then fully press the shutter button to take your picture.

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.

Grainy pictures...iso problem for olympus stylus 820


Without ISO you will not be able to take pictures.
ISO is the old ASA which is related to film speed
ISO 50 is very slow film speed and may result in blur and some grainy appearance , same as if you PUSHED ISO up to 800 in low light.

Try setting it to ISO 100 and see if that helps.

You can still select auto, but its related to either shutter or aperture priority in relation to the set film speed ( now ISO 100)

When taking photos of moving items, sometimes it talkes a long time to expose and therefore I get pictures of the ground/sky etc


many cameras have a slow shutter release .. when you push the button you expect it to take a picture right away .. but the camera has to first adjust for focus and determine how much light is or will be available then set itself up .. this takes time but some newer cameras do it all very quickly .. one way to get around this is to first hold the shutter button down half way .. do this early just before your subjects are where you want them .. the camera will auto focus and set itself up .. keep the trigger in that half way position until the subject is in place .. now when you push the trigger the rest of the way down, there is very little lag ... make sure that you focus on something close to where your subject will be when they are in position .. .. another speed up trick is, if your camera has manual focus .. preset the focus for where you want it and that saves the time it takes to auto focus .. there are several digital camera reviews on the interent ..they will tell you how much shutter lag you can expect for different cameras .. that can be a great help when you are ready for a new camera or want to see where your present camera performs ..

I can't get my Pentax Z50P film camera to automatically focus.


Remove the lens and clean the contacts between the body and the lens with a pencil eraser. Make sure the camera is on Autofocus mode. If these don't solve the problem, take it to an authorized service center.

Thereis a significant delay between pushing the button and the pi


When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Olympus FE-130 will NOT focus


It sounds like the focus motor in the lens is jammed. This could be caused by a knock or possibly sand. You could try tapping the camera (not too hard...). This might free up the motor the only other solution is to take it to a shop.
