Viewfinder blurry Pentax K100

The image is directed by the lens to a mirror then to a prism then to the viewfinder. The mirror flips up when you take a picture so the image can reach the film behind it. If the lens is ok it is possible that the mirror is very dirty or not returning completely to the proper position after a picture is taken. If the mirror is dirty you should have it professionally cleaned because it is a very light weight metal mirror and VERY EASILY SCRATCHED. If you have another lens then mount it and see if it is also blurry and cannot be focused.

A few cameras like certain Olympus models have a mirror lock up option which you use after focusing the image while the camera is on a tripod. This gets rid of the slight vibration caused by the mirror swinging up out of the way while taking. a picture.

If all else fails you might consider taking it to a good camera shop if you can find one.

Digital cameras are getting better and better but there are still things film cameras can do that most digitals cannot. Long exposures in "Bulb" mode and multiple exposures are among these. Also each brand of film has it's own Artistic color expression such as Afgachrome vs. Kodachrome.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...

Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

My pictures come out blurry even though the lens is clean, focused and in automatic mode.

Make sure the release button is being pressed, not punched. If you are punching the button you will be shaking the camera making the pictures blurry even if they are focused. The shutter speed should be at least 1/60th of a second, so f the room is dark and you are not using flash this will also make a similar problem. Take it to a camera store for diagnosis

All my photos are coming out blurry, I shoot with a tripod for stability, I have tryed everything that I can think of to acount for Photographer error, so I can only belive that it is a problum with my...

There are only a few things that can cause this problem.
1. the mirror is not seating all the way down.
2. the pressure plate on the back door is loose.
3. the diopter on the finder is not adjusted to your eye.
4. long exposures ( vibration ).
Check your lenses with a different camera body.
Check your negatives with a magnifier. it could be printer problems.

When i look through my lens, its blurry

Adjust the viewfinder diopter to suit your eyesight. The control is near the viewfinder; try adjusting it and see if the image clears up. Be careful not to poke yourself in the eye as you do this.

Forget how to take double pictures.

Hey xplaur,
To take a multiexposure photograph you should first expose the film, and then push the multiexposure button which is on the front of the camera on the top left when you are looking at the front of the camera. After you press this button advance the winding lever to set the shutter, and since the multiexposure button was pressed this shouldn't wind the film to the next frame. Now take your second exposure, and if you want to make another exposure on the same frame repeat the process. Keep in mind that every time you expose a single frame after the initial exposure you will be doubling the exposure on the frame. I usually under expose each exposure by one third on a double exposed frame. If you do more than two exposures I would underexpose each exposure by even more. Multi exposures are fun but tricky, and I would suggest you experiment and have fun with it. I will also say that black and white film is much more controllable and forgiving when it comes to this than color film. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
