Question about Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera

Blurry photo in viewfinder but not on LCD screen

When I press the shutter relaese button half way the camera beeps to let me know my object is focussed but it looks blurry. The camera is actually taking a clear photo though. But it's frustating because I can't actually tell if the subject is really in focus until after I snap the shot. Please help!!!

How do I take clear pics of xmas lights so they are clear


The camera is having problems focusing. Try focusing on a bright object hold the shutter button half way down to lock the focus then frame your image and press the shutter to take the photo.
If this does not work then try manual focus.

My nikon d3100 is saying error press shutter release button again and it dont do nything.. it also has a dark blurry film when i look through the lense ?


Hey Julie,

We'll solve your problem in a moment.

Step 1,


First, I need you to look through the viewfinder, and press the shutter release button, half-way, and notice the difference. Don't let go, till you hear a beep sound. The blurriness that you see will clear automatically.

If you hear no noise, and the blurriness doesn't go, try this.


Step 2,

On the lens, there will be a tiny button. It'll have A-M on it. Switch it to 'A', if not already on it.

Once you do that, try step one again. Now, you'll be able to overcome your problem.

Toodles,

Rebel!

Hi I find my shutter speed is slow.. I take a picture of a slow moving object and by the time the photo is taken, the object has moved out of frame


You need to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) and then, when the moment is right, press the rest of the way....result....instant picture...no delay.

Olympys fe-270 takes blurry pictures


Try this. Aim the camera at the person/object you want to take a picture of. Press the shutter button "HALF WAY DOWN" wait 2 seconds then complete by pressing all the way down to take the picture. The auto focus works on the "half way down" stroke. Some cameras have a light that goes from red to green to let you know the focus was completed. Or, just wait the 2 or so seconds.

Time betwween taking picture and actual shutter actuation to slow


Push the button half-way and allow the camera to focus before pressing the rest of the way. By pre-focussing, you can wait for just the right moment before pressing the rest of the way.

Pictures are coming out blurry


On digital cameras it is always best to press the button half way down before taking the picture. This helps the camera focus, thus preventing blurry images. Always, always press the button half way down. Secondly, if you are still getting blurry pictures, there is a possiblity that the sensor in your camera is bad. I don't know how old your camera is or how long you've had it, but you would need to send it for repair, exchange it, or if it's under warranty maybe they'll send you a new one.
