    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.

Pictures are blur


Hi,

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.

Pictures are blurred........... HELP


When you reboot your computer, hold down the "Delete" key. This should take you to a black screen and multiple options like "Safe Mode", etc. Choose "Last Known Good Configuration" then see if that helps.

If the pictures on the Internet are blurred, it's most likely due to a setting in your router/modem or web browser that is loading the page with minimal image quality and size to make browsing faster.

Sony Cyber-shot Digicams - Picture Quality !?!?!?


I'm assuming you purchased a Sony as replacement. If that's the case, take it back and ask for a new one or have it checked out. Something sounds horribly wrong to me. If by chance you got one of those Chinese/Taiwanese cameras. Give it away and go back to the P72. Of course, a few hours reading the manual and playing with the camera may solve your problems. Don't try to get fancy first off. Stick with Auto modes until you get a feel for what you're doing. If you are using Auto the go back to the first sentence :-) BMW
