Blurry images 40 F2.8

I switched on my camera the other day and i tried to take a picture. now 40 F2.8 comes up when i do so and the picture is very bad quality-all blurry. I think that maybe the setting for the tripod switched itself on so the camera now has heightened sensitivity. Does anyone have a clue how to switch this off??

This is a known problem I believe due to a bad batch off CCD.s Tell Sony Technical support about it. If this camera falls into the above category it will be replaced free of charge

Every time i take a picture with my nikon d-40 the pictures are blurry. the camera is on auto focus but i can't seem to get the picture to come out clear. any suggestions?

Is your shutter speed fast enough? If not, you'll need a faster shutter speed or a tripod.

Are you using the proper focus sensor? Is the entire image blurry or just portions of it?

What happens if you focus manually? If it comes out sharp, then there's a problem either with the lens or the autofocus system on the camera. Have you tried it with a different lens?

Is the AF switch on the lens set to A?

Blurry images on camera

When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Also try to reset the camera back to factory settings as there may be a setting that is causing this issue to occur. To reset the camera - go to Menu - left arrow to reset - highlight Yes and press ok. This will reset the camera back to factory default settings. See if the blurriness still occurs. If it is still blurry you may want to send to Olympus for evaluation and repair service.

Blurry zoomed in pictures

if you take pictures on digital zoom, the picture quality may not be acceptable. Try don’t use digital zoom.
digital zoom is not really zoom, it just enlarge a portion of the image, thus 'simulating' optical zoom. That is why you lose image quality on digital zoom.

Check that you have not got Macro set accidently.
If lighting level are low and the camera is selectinging a slow speed - reset to Apeture Priority -setting 'A' and and be very gentle with the release - the slightest movement will blur an image on long exposure.
Try these thing and if still introuble come back with more detail

Blurry Image

I had that problem too. So I pushed the MENU button and got to looking to see what all was there. I moved down to where it says SCENE and clicked on it. I moved it down to portrait. On my camera that fixed my problem of no flash and it seemed to take forever to take the picture. You could try that. But I did notice though, that when I turn my camera off and then back on I have to re-do it.

Why do my Fun! Digital 320 pictures come out blurry?

Blurry images can be caused by any or all of the following: * Distance/Focus range -- the Fun! Digital 320 has a fixed focus range of 3 - 6 feet (1.8 meters) for brightly lit indoor photography, 3 ft. (1 meter) - infinity for outdoor photography. For best results, make sure that the camera is at least 3 feet away from the subject(s) when taking pictures. * Camera/Subject movement -- This is a common cause of blurriness, especially in low-light situations (see Lighting below). Hold the camera as steadily as possible while taking a photo, or use a tripod (a tripod mount is located on the bottom of the camera). Avoid subjects that are in motion. * Insufficient lighting -- the Fun! Digital 320 is designed for taking photos outdoors or in brightly lit environments. Inadequate lighting can exaggerate camera movement and contribute to blurred, "muddied," or uncrisp images. * Lens condition -- Check the lens periodically for smudges. If necessary, wipe the lens clean with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues. * Enlarging images using software -- otherwise normal digital images can appear to become blurry and/or blotchy when over-enlarged in software. To see an image's "true" appearance, use the software's Zoom In or Zoom Out feature to view it at 100%.
