When I take a picture, it blurs at the slightest movement. What setting is wrong?


Put the main dial on the green camera logo. It is the automatic mode. Then the camera will try to pick the fastest shutter speed it can use to make a good picture. When you take pictures in one of the manual modes, like S, A or M, or in night shot mode, the shutter time can be so long you have motion blur.

I have a ViviCam X014N. Everytime I take a close up pictures, the images comes up fuzzy. What am I doing wrong? I follow Macro setting recommending 30-45 cm away, but still no luch.


Sounds like you're not using a tripod. Macro pictures have a very small area that can be in focus....the slightest movement can cause the blurry pics.

My camera takes blurry pictures it will only take clear pictures upclose


From my understanding the camera is VERY sensitive to movement and the slightest movement while the picture is being taken will blur the image considerably. This may explain why it can take decent pictures up close but not far away. The further away an object is when the shutter is open, the more exaggerated the distortion will be making it very difficult to take snapshots at a distance. The best thing to do is to simply try to stabilize the phone best as possible when the picture is being taken. It has an exceptionally powerful camera for a cell phone so it should take great pictures as long as it is held steady. Very steady.

Hello. I am having trouble with blurred pictures when there is the slightest bit of movement in the shot. I think it's because I have the 'exclamation mark, hand shaking' icon on the back screen. Can...


It would be best to consult the user guide, you can download from here for free:-

I think its page 26 you need to check out, but it seems mainly to relate to taking pictures in low light, makes it harder for the auto focus to work.............try a tripod.

If you are initiating the shutter manually, it is quite possible that the camera has become very slightly loose at the F-mount. So, when you press the shutter button, the movement though it may be extremely slight, is shaking the camera at the exact moment you are taking the picture.
Make sure that the camera is tight to the F mount and that the F mount is secure to the microscope.

If you are initiating exposure via software, it is still possible that there is still some slight movement on your desk.
Remember, the slightest movement is magnified many, many times to the camera.

Watch is new out of the box. Movement will not start. ???


mcdevito75 here, If your Wittnauer is a Quartz movement, look for a small piece of plastic, just under the crown (winder) remove this piece of plastic carefully and push the crown back down to start your watch, if it's an automatic movement, try to wind with the stem if you feel a resistance then winding will initially start yor watch by winding with 20--30 winds, if you feel no resistance when winding the simply rock your watch back and forth in your hand, you will detect something moveing inside the watch, this is the counter balance winding the watch, rock the watch back and forth for approx. 30 seconds to start an initial wind.

Sony Cyber-shot takes lots of blurry pictures in


first thing you can do is to try reverting cam back to factory settings.to do that initialize the camera.it's under menu>setup settings>main settings1>initialize. after initializing,set cam to auto adjustment mode (green camera icon in mode dial). what to avoid when taking pictures:
1.subject too close (use macro if needed)
2.insufficient light
3.subject movement
4.camera movement (that's caused by you)
5.incorrect camera setting
5.incorrect camera operation
btw, before you take a picture,press the shutter button halfway down first to give the cam ample time to focus.you'll see a flashing green indicator on the screen that means cam is focusing.when the indicator stops blinking cam is ready for the shot.press shutter button all the way.review your picture.if still blurry, you may try changing iso (for dark or fast moving subject, note:the greater value the noisier the picture gets), metering mode and focus settings by going to the shooting menu (press menu when your in P or program mode). hope this helps.tnx:)

When I put numerous SanDisk SD Cads in my 450D it does not read them. What do i do ??


Are you trying to get your camera to read cards with pictures taken on a different camera? It doesn't work that way. If you're just trying to take pictures with the cards, just format them in the camera to initialize them. This will erase them so download any pictures first using a separate card reader if necessary.
