    Exactly what do you mean by blurry?

    Do you wear glasses?

    Are you lightly pressing the shutter release while framig the shot?

Adjust the viewfinder diopter to suit your eyesight. The control is near the viewfinder; try adjusting it and see if the image clears up. Be careful not to poke yourself in the eye as you do this.

Viewfinder blurry Pentax K100


The image is directed by the lens to a mirror then to a prism then to the viewfinder. The mirror flips up when you take a picture so the image can reach the film behind it. If the lens is ok it is possible that the mirror is very dirty or not returning completely to the proper position after a picture is taken. If the mirror is dirty you should have it professionally cleaned because it is a very light weight metal mirror and VERY EASILY SCRATCHED. If you have another lens then mount it and see if it is also blurry and cannot be focused.

A few cameras like certain Olympus models have a mirror lock up option which you use after focusing the image while the camera is on a tripod. This gets rid of the slight vibration caused by the mirror swinging up out of the way while taking. a picture.

If all else fails you might consider taking it to a good camera shop if you can find one.

Digital cameras are getting better and better but there are still things film cameras can do that most digitals cannot. Long exposures in "Bulb" mode and multiple exposures are among these. Also each brand of film has it's own Artistic color expression such as Afgachrome vs. Kodachrome.

Nikon EM (1979?) When I zoom out with my lens, the picture in the viewfinder is very blurry.


What happens when you turn the focus ring? And just out of curiosity, how are you getting to a 30mm setting on a 35-105mm lens?

While taking picture with my Canon Rebel xs when you look through the lens it's blurry why is that?


I'm gonna state the obvious and suggest the lenses may be dirty. If cleaning the lenses with a cloth doesn't fix the problem, send it for repair because it may be an internal problem you may be unable to repair yourself without the proper tools and know-how.

My pictures come out blurry even though the lens is clean, focused and in automatic mode.


Make sure the release button is being pressed, not punched. If you are punching the button you will be shaking the camera making the pictures blurry even if they are focused. The shutter speed should be at least 1/60th of a second, so f the room is dark and you are not using flash this will also make a similar problem. Take it to a camera store for diagnosis

All my photos are coming out blurry, I shoot with a tripod for stability, I have tryed everything that I can think of to acount for Photographer error, so I can only belive that it is a problum with my...


There are only a few things that can cause this problem.
1. the mirror is not seating all the way down.
2. the pressure plate on the back door is loose.
3. the diopter on the finder is not adjusted to your eye.
4. long exposures ( vibration ).
Check your lenses with a different camera body.
Check your negatives with a magnifier. it could be printer problems.

Blurry pictures in Sports Mode


Well, Sports Mode is a fully automated mode, which I believe tries to balance the exposure toward faster shutter speeds. An over all dark photo indicates an underexposure. You can adjust for underexposure by dialing in a 1/2 stop or so on your exposure compensation dial.

However, dark AND blurry indicates that you just didn't have enough light. The first thing you want, for that same shooting situation, is some faster film. Go up at least an f-stop or two (eg, if you're shooting with ISO 100 film, try ISO 400).

Pay attention to the shutter speed the camera is setting. If you're stilling still, photographing action, you'll want a pretty fast shutter speed, or you WILL get blurring. I'd recommend at least 1/250th second, faster still if you're trying to freeze motion.

A more advanced technique is to pan with your subject. Follow the subject with the camera, and use a medium to medium fast shutter speed (1/60th-1/250th). You will get some blurring, but if you learn this well, your subject will be pretty clear, and the background will blur... thus including the suggestion of speed in the final photo, rather than something that looks frozen. That can deliver a much more satisfying shot.

I have used Canons for years, but I avoid all of the those special modes, like sports modes. They're really trying to deliver some help, but these are techniques you should learn in any basic photography course.

If you set the camera to Av mode, you can choose the widest aperture available for that lens, which will always get you the fastest possible shutter speed -- thus, the least chance of blurring. If you still blur, you need more light, a lower f-stop number, or faster film.. those are the only cures.
