Why do I get blurry pictures on screen even when I'm focusing.


Go to MENU. Then TOOLS. Make sure Motion Detection is in AUTO.
If that is on AUTO then Put the camera on a hard surface (like tripod) and focus and see if image is still blurry. Lastly, it is difficult to focus in some conditions. Move the focus point, you can click on the screen to change it. Blur can be caused by: long exposures, camera motion during photograph, bad conditions unable to focus.

The focus routine in this camera gets confused often. It can be frustration. It will only be in focus when it is GREEN before you shoot and the camera is not shaking. At night it can take great night shots with a TRIPOD and Exposure set to -1 to -2.

I am havin Sony Dsc-190 camera, the problem is pictures are not clear and I cnt increase the iso level, so pls help me out.


So the problem here can be many things.
  1. Either the camera is not focusing well
  2. the lens is not clean
  3. there is condensation inside the camera
is it possible if u post an image taken with the camera itself. also try checking if the camera has a master reset just in case u have set something that caused the auto focus to get disabled. like this you will reset the camera and get the auto focus back working.
the iso level will only control the lighting in your camera, so it will enable you to take pictures in darker areas when the iso goes higher. if your camera does not let you control the iso its probably set on auto.

All the pictures are blurry the auto focus isn't working


You may have put the camera on manual focus. Two ways to do that.
1. There is a switch on the lens which allows you to select auto or manual focus. Be sure the switch is set on A or A/M. If it's on M, you are on manual focus.

2. In you menus, there might be a mode which is manual focus. Look in your manual index under Focus, manual. There might be a setting in the Focus Mode menu.

You can also try resetting your camera. This will put most things back to factory default mode, including the focus mode.

When playing around with controls, go step by step through the manual and try things out. Be sure to set the control you were playing with back to default unless you really understand that setting.

Bought a Nikon P100 to replace a basic point and shoot dital camera. With children in sports, a shot from the stands is hard to 'get.' Now, all I get is blurry messes, unless it's in auto mode. Even the...


This camera is a bridge between the Point & Shoot (P&S) types and a "full blown" dSLR camera. It is very complex when compared the P&S type.

There are many areas of the manual the discuss the focus procedure, but you might want to simply perform a "RESET ALL" on the camera. This will return all the settings to their DEFAULT factory settings, thereby clearing any custom setting that could be responsible for the problem you are having. The instructions on how to do this and the settings defaults are shown on pages 171 through 173 of the manual. You will probably want to review them quickly before initiating the process.

After the reset, try taking some pictures to verify the focus works again. Next, feel free to change any setting from the default to one of your liking. Be sure to take a picture after EACH setting change to make sure you don't find yourself in the same situation again.

I hope this helps. Please rate my reply - thanks!

The auto-focus might be bad. Set to manual focus and see if that works. If not, then the focus motor is slipping or the motor itself is bad and cannot focus the lens properly.

Digital Zoom and Auto Focus "On" settings are not kept/retained


If you shoot in the P mode setting and then go to the Menu and set the option for All Reset to OFF. The camera will retain those settings when powered off. If you are shooting in the AUTO mode the camera will always default back to the factory setting of OFF when the camera is powered off. The All Reset function is not able to be set in the AUTO mode because the camera is already using factory default settings.

My Canon Powershot SD630



What do pictures taken at night/poor light look like ?? if they are an improvment ,
your Exposure/Auto-Light/White Balance settings may be horribly configured.

Firstly I'd try Resetting the camera to default settings by using the settings menu .
>Menu >Settings >Reset default settings

This should eliminate poor settings as a suspect for the problem.

Auto Focus Problem


Way to check settings is to take the batteries out for a while, it should revert to factory default settings. I tell a lot of People to try this, it works an amazing number of times. Auto focus looks for vertical lines, what are You shooting at? Try rotating the camera 90 degrees, if it locks better,Bingo. Subjects without much contrast are hard to lock focus on
