Pictures are blurry

Pictures look like the camera was moving. Pictures are blurry.

Some pictures- only the middle of the picture is blurry.

I am hoping its something minor. If not I will have to take it in

I am using a faster speed film since its sports pictures. Any suggestions

Re: pictures are blurry

Maybe you have the camera set to a slow shutter speed. Try putting it on Program mode.

Downloding pictures

I assume this is about a digital camera, not a film camera. Also, since you neglected to specify the make and model of your camera, I'm assuming it uses a memory card of some type.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Fujifilm instax 200 camera will not spit out pictures! :(



Camera might be damaged because of the fall, suggest to consult the Authorized Dealer near you (-see above link), or send it back to the store where you purchase it as it may be still part of the warranty.

Thank you

I have a Cannon oes digital camera. Please keep in mind I am a rookie. My daughter is a gymnist and during her meets i am not permitted to use the flash. I have the setting on action with manual focusing....

The problem is that there's only so much light available indoors. Since you can't add light, there's only two things you can do to get the faster shutter speeds needed to stop the action.

One is to use a faster lens. Unfortunately, such things can cost as much as $2000, so unless _Sports Illustrated_ is paying for your pictures, this may not be a feasible alternative.

The other option is to raise the ISO setting, increasing the sensitivity of the sensor to light. Unfortunately, this will also increase noise, in effect amplifying the static.

Unfortunately, the laws of physics are a bit difficult to circumvent.

I have a Polaroid P (not digital) that I don't quite know how to

Blurry pictures are caused usually by one of two things:
1. Camera not focused correctly (ie set to wrong distance)
2. Camera shake (due to not holding the camera steady or too long a shutter speed)
Camera shake is very common and usually occurs when the light is low and/or you zoom in on a subject.

The cure is to make sure the lens is focused (this may be automatic but you should get some indication such as a green light?) and keep the camera steady by perhaps using a wall or lamppost or even a tripod. Having said all that in good daylight there should not be a problem holding the camera and if the flash is going off then you should certainly not be getting camera shake.
I am afrid I dont know the model to say how to turn the flash off but hope this is useful anyhow.

Canon Eos Rebel SLR (non-digital) takes blurry grainy indoor pictures, even with flash, even when I put a lot of lights on. I use Fujifilm 400. I have used my 300mm telephoto and my regular short lens,...

Sounds like the shutter is making long exsposure and you are actuallly getting blur- this can even happen with flash if the shutter stay open too  long.  without film, look in viewfinder and see what shutter speed the cmaer awants to use- it may be set incorrectly and is set on manual shutter speed- the shutter speed numners are actually the bottm part of a fraction, so 30 is 1/30th of a second- to prevent blur you want the numbers to be 60 or higher.

Bad Minolta Maxxum lens?

Oddly enough, the camera and lens are working just fine now - or at least they appear to be. I'll shoot some more when I have good lighting and 1-hour them tomorrow for the results.

Pictures have brown instead of color look, why

You have a bad film pack. Replacing the film pack with a new one should fix the problem. Nothing in the camera can change the color of a picture. The camera can over expose pictures (wash out the picture), under expose pictures (dark pictures), or the picture can be out of focus (blurry).
