Question about Fuji FinePix S5100 Digital Camera

Pictures out of focus

I am taking still shots on a table of documents. One shot is clear, the next ridiculously out of focus. I have pretty much given up on this camera and bough a Kodak. This was my only Fuji camera and will be my last. I am also trying to figure out how to change the battery that runs the flash. Thank you so much for your help. Also where can I download the instructions?

Keep the camera on AUTO, and refocus on every shot (push the button down until you see the green cross-hairs in the center of your subject - let up and then "snap" your photo).

To change the battery - open the door on the bottom right.

Blurred photos


You should check to ensure the camera is set on Auto Focus. Might be a switch on the body.

I downloaded pictures from my camera but since then my camera pictures that I take are out of focus


If it is clear in your camera LCD but looks out of focus once you download it to a computer, check if you have enabled close up shots, the one which looks like a flower near the menu button, you have to disable it. Pleare refer to the manual or closely watch the panel buttons. Once you disable close up shots then the pictures you take after that will be good.

If this is not the case we have to check on the autofocus options.

Sony Cyber-shot takes lots of blurry pictures in


first thing you can do is to try reverting cam back to factory settings.to do that initialize the camera.it's under menu>setup settings>main settings1>initialize. after initializing,set cam to auto adjustment mode (green camera icon in mode dial). what to avoid when taking pictures:
1.subject too close (use macro if needed)
2.insufficient light
3.subject movement
4.camera movement (that's caused by you)
5.incorrect camera setting
5.incorrect camera operation
btw, before you take a picture,press the shutter button halfway down first to give the cam ample time to focus.you'll see a flashing green indicator on the screen that means cam is focusing.when the indicator stops blinking cam is ready for the shot.press shutter button all the way.review your picture.if still blurry, you may try changing iso (for dark or fast moving subject, note:the greater value the noisier the picture gets), metering mode and focus settings by going to the shooting menu (press menu when your in P or program mode). hope this helps.tnx:)

Focus problems


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.

The other reason is focus, or lack thereof. You didn't specify what cameras you have, but if they're Coolpixes, they most likely have a close-up or macro mode that will allow the lens to focus closer. If you're using a DSLR, you will need some other way to focus closer. Macro lenses, extension tubes, and close-up filters are three ways of achieving this.

I have a Canon Powershot SX100IS.It is the worst


If this is occurring in "Auto" as you say, then the particular camera that you have is defective. If a recent purchase, return it for exchange or refund. If that's not possible, call 1-800-OK-CANON for warranty repair. The SX100 IS actually is a VERY nice camera, and this is very uncommon for a Canon camera. Unfortunately, it sounds like you somehow got one that slipped through the cracks.

Focusing issues with canon 40D when taking sports shots


I believe I have found my problem. I think my image stablizer on my lens is on the brink! I turn it off and got good pictures.

Error 18 powershot


The camera can take a couple of shots (clear and in focus), then stops working. Removing the batteries and replacing may produce 2-3 extra shots.

Canon's instructions (by phone) are to 'remove the batteries, rotate the on button and hold for 5 seconds, and then replace the battery'. The few lucky pictures are clear and in focus.

A better solution (not provided by Canon) is to connect the camera to the TV or a computer. This may completely solve the problem. If not, it may at least allow an extra 10-15 shots. There are several forums on the net that mention that connecting the camera to the TV completely resolved the E18 error.

A camera lens is out-of-focus. Some users have been able to manipulate the lens back into place (see reference links below). To fix the problem, it is often necessary that the camera and optical assembly is disassembled, realigned and reassembled. A non-warranty repair at an authorized service center reportedly costs between US $79 to $250.

SONY DSC-H1 focus problems


I think the reason for that is that you are using a wrong focus type. I recommend you using wide focus (not sure if named it right) and make sure you have your steady-shot function on. To change focus type, just find the button next to the shot-button.

Fuzzy pictures from my Panasonic DMC-FZ5


Fuzzie picture -meaning out of focus? Check that you have not got 1- macro setting on [setting symbol looks like a tiny plant] or that you have a low light setting which menas it is taking long exposures. Aslso the Auto foxus may not be function as it should - one possibility is that the way you hold the camera covers the 'window' make sure your fingers are aware from any of the front top panel 'windows' When you depress the shutter part way down- does the lens 'motor' to focus Or indeed are you doing part way or are snapping off shot and giving the camera time to focus? Lots of thing for you to check out, before we start getting worried. The difficult ones are if the camera has taken a knock and the lens mount has become dislodged But do all the check first and do consult the manual
