    We took several still pictures on vacation. We tried to change the settings to continuous shooting. When you review pictures on the cam corder they looked fine. When we had them developed,$75.00 later, they were all blurry.

I had the same problem and found this forum.  In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom!  back on to focused pictures.  Hallelujah.

Some time it happens while you take pictures in Night shot mode.Check it up once.

I'm by no means an expert, but I put the shutter speed on about 1/15 to 1/30 depending on the lighting, adjusted the lighting effect, as Auto really made the pictures look orange. Then I turned on the Tele Marco. The higher the shutter speed the better the result, but the more light you need. I hope this helps.

How to reduce blur on close-up LEGO figure photographs?

Lenses have a limited 'closeness' at which they will focus. That is, unless it is a macro lens, you cannot focus closer than a yard or so (it is different for each lens). look on the barrel for markings or easier yet, move your camera back until the subject is in focus.
If you have to be back 3 feet - take the shots and then crop to make them appear larger.

Pictures come out blurry if any movement

The most likely culprit is a slow shutter speed. If the subject moves while the picture is being taken, you'll see it blur. If non-moving objects show up sharp while the moving objects are blurred, then this is definitely it.

Another possibility is camera movement. Try putting the camera on a tripod or a table or other steady support, then use the self-timer to take a picture. If everything in the picture is blurry, then this is probably the reason.

The third possibility is that the camera isn't focused on the subject. Try taking a picture of the subject when it isn't moving and see what happens.

Save yourself the aggravation 03/25/2011 MommybrainX2 rating.png My hubby bought this for me for Christmas. It was to replace my OLD Cannon (4 MP). Now he feels horrible for buying it for me! This camera is horrible! I read the manual, I've played with all of the settings- the fact is when trying to take a picture of a moving object- even slightly- the picture comes out extremely blurry. Forget it with a toddler. I have yet to get one good picture of my kids with this camera, which was the whole purpose of having it. My old 4mg camera takes better pictures than this thing does. Settings haven't made a difference. I have actually reverted to my old camera instead of using this sad excuse for a camera.

Color in printed pictures is terrible! All HP

try going into your printers properties and look for a print quality tab. One of the tabs will allow you to change your print style on pictures. Or the HP software that came with the printer should allow you to modify the print quality.

I was watching my HCL4715W TV and the picture

It sounds like one of the convergence Ic chips is bad---you will need to locate and replace both of them and look for any damaged parts around them; there usually are two pico fuses in this area, one for each IC. The fuses do not look like glass fuses--they usually are green or orange in color and will have the amperage marked on them and on the top of the circuit board.

Pictures taken from sony digital camera (6 Mega pixel) are not clearly seen on SONY DVP FX720. Is there any settings we need to do to get good quality?

change the format eg 640 x 480 to a higher resolution ...a good quality uses about 250kb per picture most jpegs use 50kb to save space
a really good picture can use 500kb.

Cant turn off Blur mode

The camera gets reset to factory settings simply by removing batteries for two minutes.

If that does not work , then the camera is not in 'blur mode' , but has a faulty CCD sensor, that cause this typical effect, picture blurred an like moving, and often a wrong color tone.

Pictures are blur


Your pictures are blurry because the camera did not focus properly on the subject.

First, turn on the camera in any picture taking mode (or video mode), then look at the screen or viewfinder. There should be four white corners in the center of the camera display. This is your targeting area.
1. Aim the camera at your subject so this center area is directly on it.

2. Press the shutter button lightly, not all the way down. Wait for a second or two WITHOUT RELEASING YOUR FINGER. If the white corners turn green, keep the finger on the button and press it all the way.

(Once the screen flashes black, a picture is taken and you can release the finger).
If the targeting area turns red and blinks, then the camera has not focused. You can to try to focus again by following step 1 and 2. If a picture is taken when the targeting area is red, then the picture will be blurry.

If there is no targeting area, then you can still focus by aiming the camera at your subject. Now follow step 2. A green box will appear on the subject, then a sharp picture can be taken.
The red arrow that flashes means that the pictures or videos are being written onto the memory card.

Also, try to be steady when taking pictures, because slight hand movement can cause blurry images too.

Page 25 in the DMC-FZ7's english manual will also explain how to focus.
