Question about Fuji FinePix F450 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blurred Images/ Photos

The Screen/ Viewer image is blurred, probably about 50% image quality loss. Obviously I get photos of the same quality. When I zoom fully the image becomes a little better. About a week ago the message 'focus error' appeared, but the camera continued to work perfectly well. The mechanism seem to work OK, motors seem to be running. No obvious damage to the camera. It could have been damaged in my suitcase recently (since focus error message). The camera also has a habit of switching it-self on when caught putting it in the carry case. I have tried looking at manual, took battery out, switched macro off etc Anyone Help?

Re: Blurred Images/ Photos

Check out the Fiji Tech support team. Depending on the age of the camera there may be a swap out option. Independent repair will not be an economic prop.

My cannon power shotA4000IS suddenly stop showing/focused pictures the scree show a blurred image of photo taken?

If you are convinced you did not switch the camera to manual settings, and the blur stays, please contact the nearest Canon certified service centre close to you. But before check the settings on the camera and start putting it on automatic.

How to take off front screen

There is usually two reasons you get blurred photos. 1) camera movement and 2) subject movement ... sometimes both. This happens when the shutter speed picked by your camera is too slow and unless you have the digital hd video camera on a tripod, it has some kind of image stabilization scheme and the subject is not moving, you will get blurred images.

I am surprised you picked a camera that cannot use your old SD cards. Did you know that only Olympus and Sony do NOT use SD cards?

Photos are blurred.

Blurred images are caused by several reasons: motion due to camera shake, use of slow shutter speeds and failure of the camera to focus correctly.

Slow shutter speeds

When light is low, wide apertures and slow shutter speeds will be selected automatically by the camera. Most people can't take blur-free, hand-held shots when the shutter speed is under 1/60th of a second.

Cameras that have optical Image Stabilization help but even IS has its limits. Increase room lighting, increase the ISO setting or use a tripod, or use a combination of all three.

Blurred images or misfocus

If an image is blurred due to camera shake, the blur will appear throughout the entire image. If parts of an image are in focus, and others are not, you've misfocused.

Your LCD is only a small preview screen. I have on many occasions tested a camera and viewed on the screen. When you view the image on a computer it is enlarged to a much larger image. If your pictures appear out of focus you may have a bad lens. Set your camera to the highest mega pixel rate and retake some test images. If these are blurred you have a bad lens.

The image is getting blurred


The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.
