Question about Samsung Digimax A50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Problem I was taking a photograph of my CCTV camera with infra red night vision. The screen went blurred and then blank. After a few mins the full picture returned but is now a mirror image and upside down! Do you think the infra red is the cause, or is it just coincidental? Can the problem be rectified? I've tried the reset button but nothing happens.

Re: Problem

It isnt the infra red.

on you dvr machine there should be settings or settings on the camera for mirror and flip.

these are features on better cameras and are normally on the camera body, but veiwable on the cctv monitor. they should be menu driven.

I hope this will be of help

Blurred vision on screen and photos

Sounds as if you may have inadvertently engaged Macro mode (done it myself !). Look in manual for Macro, or try to find it in on-screen menus, and reset to normal.

Night photography tips using nikon d3100

The best tip is to use a tripod or other camera support. That is, unless you want the blur from camera motion.

Other than that, it depends on what you're photographing, and what you want that photograph to say to the viewer.

Solution for blur camera nikon d5000 when take pickture at night time

It may be your exposure combination. The blur is because your shutter speed is too slow. You did not say what you are photographing at night and without that information, I can only speak in generalities. It all depends on the light source. If you are taking pictures of illuminated signs, auto exposure modes might work great, but if you are shooting incident light rather than pointing your camera at the light source, I would use a tripod and use manual exposure. Adjust your ISO to a high number. That will allow a faster shutter speed to stop motion.

There's a diopter adjustment control near the right edge of the viewfinder. Look through the viewfinder at a blank wall and adjust this until the focus marks appear sharp.

Hi im using Canon ixus 95 IS. How do i use it to take photos in the dark room or at night? Can i use it to take clear photos in the dark room?

Simple check - point any old Infra-red remote control at the camera. If you see a blue flash from the transmitting end of the remote wand, chances are you may be able to equip and use an infra-red illumination lamp. If there is a tripod mounting hole in the bottom of the camera, you may be able to find a packaged illuminator with bracket and compatible tripod screw post to make the camera an all in one, single handed device.

Many cameras are sensitive to near~ middle infra-red but incorporate a "hot filter" to mitigate the effects. Daytime exposures outdoors are FULL of infra-red background radiation that can upset the color balance of the photograph captured. Using an illuminator "saturates" the hot filter and the area in front of the camera, giving it a little help to "see" clearly in a low-light situation.

Sounds like camera shake. When you use the zoom you get more camera shake. Try taking pix without zoom and see if you still have blurred photos.

Use only optical zoom and use a tripod.
