Question about Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

At the beach & my camera is on the fritz, big problem too many photo ops here, please help!

When taking photos, the images are either blurred, whited out or there are faint stripes through the pics. I used this camera last night and the photos came out fantastsic, when I woke, they have been as decribed above. Not even salvagable. Could I have pressed a button without realizing it? When I first tried to take a pic, it was really humid out and I chalked the problem up to moisture, but as the day has gone on, the problem is still here....ahhhhh!!! There are too many kodak moments so to speak to have my camera on the fritz! Please help! KWags

If you can get the images upload to the computer or get hold of a card reader and get the images in that way. Then go online to and download PC inspector- install it and run the card through it it will retrieve and missing images. As for the camera looks like it is in its death throws. Check out customer support to see if it savagable at a sensible price

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.

I get blurred images, what seems to be the problem? please help

HI there blurry image came for 2 reason. 1. Lens not adjusting or focusing properly. 2. Sensor damage or your setting is on Macro / close up mode.
Just try this first and let me know. Set the camera as AUTO mode with flash and then take a day time photo. if that photo came blur then clean the sensor & lens external body and try again. If again the result same then you need to repair the lens settings. Thanks.

My lumix dmc-tz2 is taking photos that are blurred with a purple haze and dsometimes with white lines throught them...please help

You have to change the lens assembly, if you are lucky enough to buy the parts cheap on ebay. If it is contact resistance problem, you can just pat it in any direction to see if the image is improved.

Blurry enlargements

I suggest altering the settings a little and if that doesn't work try using a different software to enlarge images. Such as windows photo gallery. That's not too good for enlarging just good for keeping the quality up if that isn't good enough try using a free trial of photo shop.
Hope I helped Dr Red

Photo's blur alot

Blurness doesn't happens because of the number of the pixels in the cameras.
Is the picture on the computer screen blur/the cameras screen or the lens hole?

I suggest you to set the camera on Automatic station (red camera on the wheel) in day light,try to stay still see how blur the photos are when you are not playing with the parameters. it it's still blurry it could be the pulley block next to the -eyepiece. roll it until it's not blur.

Blurry black & white photos

Are you saying this problem *only* happens when you put the camera into black and white mode? If so, you could simply shoot everything in color, and then convert the images to black and white after transfering them to your computer. The free photo organizer from Preclick ( will do this for you and more.
