I have a Nikon D5000 and my daughter is a competitive cheerleader and every competition the lighting is always dark and on the stage is really bright. My problem is i can't seem to get good pictures with...

Photographing in low-light situations is always problematical. I'm going to assume you can't add more light, and go on to other things.

The blurring is caused by subject motion. Because the light level is so low, the shutter has to remain open for longer and thus a moving subject blurs.

Raise the sensitivity of your camera to light. Turn the ISO up. This will lead to digital noise, looking something like film grain. However, given the choice between a grainy picture and no picture...

Use the fastest lens you have, and open it up all the way. Switch to the Aperture-priority mode by turning the mode dial to A and turn the command dial to get the largest aperture (smallest f/number). This will give you the fastest shutter speed possible under the conditions. Unfortunately, the kit lenses usually sold with the D5000 are not very fast. If you see professional photographers at a basketball game or a night football game, you'll notice they're using big lenses. Unfortunately, such lenses cost $2000 and more.

Try to catch the action at its peak. For example, during a jump there's a brief instant when she stops going up and is yet to start going down. You may have to take dozens of pictures just to get one good one, but you're not paying for film and printing the bad ones, so take pictures. Lots of pictures.

Blurry view

The simplest thing which might have gone wrong is that you mistakenly activated the macro function. Try taking a picture of, say, a flower from a few inches: if it's sharp, you're employing the camera's macro function and need to deactivate it.

I don't recall the DSC having a manual focus setting, but check it out. If you turned it on, you need to manually adjust the focus through the zoom control in order to get sharp pictures (or turn on autofocus, of course).

Otherwise, the auto-focusing software might be at fault. There are several autofocus settings available; try cycling them all and see if the problem is reversible.

If not, either the autofocus parameters are gone awry - I'm afraid the camera'll need servicing - or maybe a dirty lens is causing the autofocus to malfunction, in which case cleaning it would solve the problem. Frankly, it's unlikely - it would take a really cleverly positioned and greasy fingerprint to fool a modern focusing engine. But you might be lucky, and it's worth a check.

Sony Cyber-shot takes lots of blurry pictures in

first thing you can do is to try reverting cam back to factory do that initialize the'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 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'll see a flashing green indicator on the screen that means cam is focusing.when the indicator stops blinking cam is ready for the shutter button all the 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:)

I can take a picture but its blurry

Set your camera to auto and try again. The setting you are using determines what your picture will look like. If you want to use other settings you should know how they work so you can get what you want. Otherwise set your camera to auto. You will find this on the small dial with the different settings indicated on it. If you do this and your picture is still blurry, then when snapping your shot, press the button slightly down (not completely at first) wait a few seconds and then press it down completely to take your shot.

View finder

Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.

My screen shows a blurry picture and it takes a blurry picture. it didnt used to. what is wrong? how do i fix it?

I have the exact same problem. When I was in NY last fall, suddenly my camera would only take blurry pictures. I hadn't changed any settings or anything. I can get halfway decent pictures in Auto mode, but any of the other settings only take blurry pictures. Apparently a lot of people have this problem, but no one knows how to solve it...

Blurry pictures

Both of these problems are caused by underexposure. There are several causes for this. If you are set in AUTO MODE check the shutter speed and lens opening in the view finder. If the speed is less than 100 and the shutter is less than 5 and you are not using flash. You will probably get blured and dark pictures.  Practice shooting with your settings outside in sunlight , inside with lamplight, inside with flash and all of the above with motion. Check the exposure after each shot and make adjustments. In a short time you will get very good at setting your camera.

Blurry pictures

First try to put the camera dial on the P mode setting and then press ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to setup tab - then right arrow to All Reset and then right arrow to make sure it is set to On. Then power the camera off and then back on. The camera should then be in factory defaulted settings. Try taking an image in P mode and seeing how it turns out. If it is still blurry you may want to call Olympus technical support to further troubleshoot your issue. Their telephone number is 888-553-4448 option 5 and then option 1.
