SOURCE: The subject is very blury or out of the picture

If you have not tried it......use manual focus. The Owner's manual will tell you how to set it. When shooting in low light, don't overdo the shutter speed. When you increase shutter speed, you need more light. Try a shutter speed of about 1/250th, while using "shutter priority" mode. Something else to try: Frame your subject and press the shutter button down half-way. Reframe your subject and then press the button down the rest of the way.

SOURCE: Blurry photos on the Sony DSC 170

This issue often is related to lighting, subjects in the foreground, and the lack of optimal settings when using the Easy / Auto function.

First, you should look at subject matter.  If you have the camera set to Easy / Auto, it will focus for you.  This is good if the subject of the photo is the only thing (or the nearest thing) in the frame, however if there is anything else closer to the camera, it will assume that the nearest object is the one being photographed, and will adjust accordingly.  Although it may be something large such as a chair, sofa, table or even a houseplant, it may also be focusing on something as small as a child's toy.  If you must use the Easy / Auto function when photographing your children, make sure that your children are the only (or the closest) subjects in the photo, and the camera ought to set the focus on them.

The second issue is lighting.  Even when using the easiest settings on this camera, you still must make sure that the lighting and flash are optimal.  The flash, for instance, can be set to three different intensities, as not all situations require the same amount of additional light.  Make sure that if photographing indoors, you have either a decent amount of lighting, or the flash set to add the appropriate amount of additional light.  If the area photographed is too dark / bright, the camera (when set to the easiest settings, without any additional specifications from the user) will have difficulty finding (or choosing) the main subject of the photograph.  This is why you will occasionally see multiple little green squares, when it looks (to you) as though your children ought to be the primary --and only-- focus of the photo.  In simple terms, the camera is confused, and will choose what stands out as the main subject.

Remember that although this camera is technically of the point-and-click variety, one of the things that makes it stand out as a digital camera is the ability to adjust the settings as the situation dictates.  I suggest learning what each of the camera settings are used for (it seems daunting at first, but I assure you that it isn't as difficult as it first appears to be... remember, this camera is technically for those who have little-to-no experience with photogrpahy) and applying the available settings to the photos you take.  I am able to turn on my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC W170, adjust the settings to the situation, and photograph my children in less than two seconds more than it would take to turn it on and set it to Auto.  I have taken photos with this camera that have come out beautifully enough to print at the actual stated 8"x10" size (which is rare for a point-and-click), by adjusting only the ISO and flash (and nothing more) to accomodate the setting.

If you are looking for strictly a point-and-click camera that you do not need to set anything on (essentially the digital version of a quality 35mm disposable camera), there are some excellent ones on the market today.  I would reccommend the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC W170 to those who are looking for a camera that is slightly above "beginner" level (though well below "expert" level) cameras.  My husband purchased this for me as a birthday gift, to have on hand for quick photo-taking (quicker than setting up a tripod and adjusting my primary camera) while out and about with our children.  

I have been able to take some very beautiful photos with this camera (three outdoor photos were nice enough to sell), however I have only made use of the Easy / Auto settings a few times, while playing with the settings after first receiving the camera.  There are other beginner-level point-and-click cameras that, in my opinion, take far better digital photos than photos taken using the Easy / Auto functions of the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC W170.

This camera was designed for consumers who make use of the various settings, to ensure an optimal photographic experience (much like the difference between a professional photographer's 35mm camera and a basic 35mm camera).  For this reason, anyone looking for a camera that is an easy, simple point-and-click (i.e. you turn it on, take the photos, and that's it), I would suggest shopping around for a simpler camera.  There are many excellent ones that are designed to be quick and easy, and take good quality photos, without needing to adjust anything.

You need to learn the "half-press". You press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep). Then, when the moment is right, you finish pressing the rest of the way for an instant picture.

SOURCE: Nixon S8100 fairly new camera,

If everything in the picture is blurry, you are moving the camera when you press the shutter button. If only the subject is blurry and the background is clear the problem is too slow shutter speed. If this is cause by movement of the camera you must learn to SQUEESE the button while being sure you don't move the camera. It just takes a little practice. If this problem caused by a shutter speed that is too slow, it is remedied by increasing the ISO "film" speed. Even though you have no film, the camera has a "speed" setting that relates to that. The higher ISO value increases the camera's sensitivity to light and thus allows for faster shutter speed. Normally the ISO choices are 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600. Try using 400. The ISO setting is in one of your camera menus. 400 is fast enough to solve your problem in all but very fast movement of either the camera or subject. Using ISO above 400 will cause your pictures to look grainy and not as sharp. Use the highest speed only when absolutely necessary. Slower ISO numbers produce the finest grain and thus the sharpest pictures. It a trade off between ISO and shutter speed because the exposure is a combination of the ISO and shutter speed and lens opening. Each one effects the exposure by half or double.

Why are my photos blurry?


There are only three reasons photos look blurry: poor focus, shaking the cameral during the shot, or trying to take a photo of a fast-moving subject with a slow-speed camera.

You can usually see focus problems on the display before you take the picture, so that doesn't appear to be your issue. On the other hand, movement of camera or subject happens during the shot, so you'll only see that in the completed photo.

Camera movement first. Many cameras today have built-in "anti-shake" circuits that sense when you're the problem -- you're moving the camera during the shot. The best ones are very good at eliminating shakiness, but even they can't overcome large movement, as when you mash down the button to take the picture. If yours doesn't have anti-shake, or it isn't very well implemented, you'll just have to practice pushing gently on the button and holding the camera very still until it finishes the shot.

As for subject movement -- well, more sophisticated cameras offer ways to capture kids bouncing on a trampoline with a minimum of blurriness, but it's always going to be a problem.

If you don't want to switch to one of the more sophisticated cameras from a major brand, practice holding the camera steady during every shot and avoid shooting fast-moving subjects.

Pictures come out blurry if any movement


The most likely culprit is a slow shutter speed. If the subject moves while the picture is being taken, you'll see it blur. If non-moving objects show up sharp while the moving objects are blurred, then this is definitely it.

Another possibility is camera movement. Try putting the camera on a tripod or a table or other steady support, then use the self-timer to take a picture. If everything in the picture is blurry, then this is probably the reason.

The third possibility is that the camera isn't focused on the subject. Try taking a picture of the subject when it isn't moving and see what happens.

Some of my pictures are blurry using a cannon rebel 3. how can i fix this problem?


There are several possible causes for blurry pictures.
1) Camera motion. If everything is blurry, it's most likely because the camera moved while the picture was being taken. Make sure your shutter speed is fast enough if you're handholding the camera (longer lenses require faster shutter speed). Alternatively, put your camera on a stable surface, such as a tripod or a tabletop.
2) Subject motion. If the subject is blurry but the background is sharper, then the subject may have moved while the picture was being taken. Use a faster shutter speed. Raise the ISO if needed. There are limits, of course. If you're trying to photograph a fast-moving object in the dark, you probably won't be able to.
3) Improper focus. If the subject is blurry but something else in the picture is sharp, then the camera probably focused on the wrong object. Move the focus selector to the subject you want in focus. Alternatively, center the viewfinder on the subject, press the shutter button halfway to lock focus, then reframe and shoot.
Without any more specific information as to what and how your pictures are blurry, I'm afraid the above is all I can give you.

What make and model of camera do you have?

In general, you need to make sure you aren't shaking the camera or focusing on something that's too close. Also, you need to have adequate lighting or enable the flash.

If it's a new camera, make sure you have removed any protective stickers on the lens and display.

Many times people move the camera while snapping the picture. Sometimes they don't even know they're moving until later.

Put the camera on a table or other stable, stationary object.
Point the camera at some large object at least five feet away and make sure no other close objects are in view.
If the camera has a timer mode, engage the timer mode and press the button to take a picture. Otherwise, hold the camera steady on whatever it's sitting on and press the button to take a picture.

If the picture is still blurry after a few attempts, then the check the camera lens to see if it's dirty. If it's clean, the camera probably needs to be serviced. If you have a product repair/protection or warranty from a retailer, check with the retailer on how to get it serviced. If not, check the manual and manufacturer's website to see how to get it serviced or repaired.

Canon sd 550 (and sd 200) shutter speed


If you check out a review site such as www.steves digi cams. com or even the Canon site to check out the spec of the camera to discover what shutter speeds are available. When shooting fast moving subjects try panning the camera on the object as you press the release this will[to a degree] keep the primary image sharp[ish] whilst blurring the background

The subject is very blury or out of the picture


You are expecting too much for any auto mode. When shooting under low light conditions, the camera may take longer to achieve focus lock. If the subject is moving too, it will take even longer to lock focus. Try using manual focus for the conditions you described.
