Question about Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera

Focusing K so when I'm taking pictures, it focused on the object but then blurs out the background. At times I don't want the background to be blurred out, how do I make it to where that doesn't do that?

You'll have to set the aperture to a higher number. Set camera to Aperture Priority mode and increase the number (usually set at 2.8). The higher numbers will preserve foreground and background focus but will require more light - not a problem in outdoor daytime but at night or indoors will need flash.

How can i adjust settings for blurred pictures on Samsung ES15


That would depend on why the pictures are blurry.

If the pictures are blurred because of camera motion, you need to either use a faster shutter speed or place the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

If the pictures are blurred because the subject is moving, you need to use a faster shutter speed.

If the pictures are blurred because it's out of focus, you need to ensure that the camera is focusing on what you consider to be the subject, not what the camera chooses.

Picture comes out blurry


There are three main reasons for blurry pictures.
Pictures may come out blurry if they're not focused properly. If some objects are sharp and others are not, this may indicate focusing on the wrong subject. This is usually not a major problem with compact point&shoot cameras since they have such a wide field of focus that almost everything will be in focus anyway.
Subject motion. If moving objects blur while stationary objects remain sharp then the shutter speed is too slow to freeze the motion. Try switching to the sports mode, and/or add more light.
Camera motion. This is the most common cause. Set your camera on a table or other stable surface and use the self-timer to take a picture. Take another one while holding the camera. Compare the two on your computer.

If parts of the person's face are in focus, and others are not, it is because your depth-of-field is too shallow. This is controlled by the aperture of the lens.
Use the "A" mode on your camera, for aperture priority, and set the aperture to f/5.6 or f/8. This will make the person's face completely sharp. You will, however, lose some of the blur in the background.
Also, be careful not to move the camera after focusing.
Happy shooting!

One of a few things might be happening
1. Photos being taken at high zoom (i.e. 200mm) are susceptible to camera shake, even though the lens is focusing properly. The solution here is use a tripod, zoom out, or steady yourself.
2. Photos being taken without flash when flash should really be used will result in motion blur (which is slightly different than camera shake). This is due to the camera using a longer shutter speed to let more light in, with the side effect being that objects will move while the shutter is open, blurring the picture. The solution here is to use a flash, or take pictures in better light.
3. The camera may be focusing on something other than what you intended.
3. If you are taking photos in good light with a steady hand, and the camera is choosing the correct subject to focus on, then yes, the lens could need readjusted, though this is not a very likely scenario.
If the lens is "hunting" for focus, that could be a sign that something is amiss.
A local camera shop can verify the accuracy of focus for your lens.

When filming or not the picture becomes blurred for a few seconds every few minutes. Please can you help.


It sounds like it's simply auto-focusing. When you're filming and the camera auto-focus sensor detects a new focus object, it will attempt to refocus on the new object. In lower light situations, this may take longer for the sensor to read the new object. The only way to resolve this is to turn auto-focus off (if your camera allows it). If your subject area remains in the same plane of focus, you shouldn't have any focus issues. If it changes, however, you will have to manually refocus to the new plane, just as you would with a manual camera.

Hope this helps!

My fuzzy photos are hard to avoid. How do I take a clear picture?


There are three main reasons photos don't come out clear.
The first is focus. If your photo has something in the near foreground and something in the distant background, you may not get both in focus. This is not as much of a problem with compact point&shoot cameras simply because their field of focus is so deep.
The second cause is subject motion. If you take a photo of a moving object, that object may blur. This is the case if moving objects blur but still objects do not.
The third and main cause is camera motion. If you suspect this, try placing the camera on a table or other stable surface, use the self-timer, and take a photo. Compare this photo with one you take holding the camera.

Blurred subject in middle of photo


I own Rebel XT and Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII lens with plastic mount and noticed many pictures with missed focus, either front or back focusing. Meaning objects slight forward or below the intended subject is in focus. I've sent my body and the lens to Canon for evaluation and thet adjusted my focus sensors on the body. I still have problems and there are many threads related to focusing on this camera with 50mm f1.8 that the sensors on this camera do not do so well with fast lens and prone to missed focus.
Test your camera's focusing ability with a book or magazine where you focus on just one specific line and see if it is truly in focus when you review the picture.

Picture blurred


There can be several reasons for blurred pictures.
Are you taking the picture in enough light? Is auto focus turned on? If not, are you focusing correctly? What sort of camera are you shooting with?
