Hi,i have a nikon 5000 camera,it takes stunning macro shots,the detail is amazing,yet whenever i then want to take any landscape,scenic shots or anything apart from macro,the images are all blurry!!this happens inside and outdoors,whatever the weather conditions.I know theres enough light,even added the flash to bright sunny conditions,yet it still gives very blurry pictures.I am now considering getting rid of this camera.I have tried increasing the iso,nothing works on anything.occaisionaly the normal picture is fairly ok,(macro ones are still stunning),i dont just want to use this camera for macro,this is so annoying,I have studied the user manual and tried everything,but nothing,any advice PLEASE guys??thanks

Re: nikon 5000 focus probs
Depending on how long you have had the camera - Nikon may come up with a free solution.
Contact Technical Support at Nikon.
The auto focus is not functioning as it should.
Do make sure you are not covering any 'Windows'
on the front of the camera when taking, shots.

This problems sounds like you are trying to take pictures too close to your snakes. These lenses do have a limitation and usually you need to stand at least about 6 feet away from your subjects. If you are using a Macro lens then you can be closer; but the lens must be set to macro or have this feature. If you think you maybe having some type of focusing issue then I suggest you contact Photo Tech at www.phototech.com because they are the authorized Nikon service facility.
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.
hi,let me just inform u that the macro mode is only for outdoors.So on the side of the camera u will find a sliding switch.Just slide it to the opposite direction to turn off the macro mode.Since u wanted to take pictures of jewelry pieces,turn on the flash if u have one and then take a closeup shot with good lighting conditions.If its too bright then use only the flash,if u r not satisfied with the quality then use only lights and then take a pic.Still face any prob plz get back to me.
