Blurry or dark pictures in low light

When I take pictures of deer in low light, just before dark they are either very dark or blurry, sometimes looks like 2 objects instead of 1.

I love to travel and take random pictures of animals and flying birds. I recently bought a new sony a7s, it's amazing for taking pictures at low light and capturing moving objects like flying birds, running deer and so on.
It offers amazing photography in the low light situation, also provides great videography functions.

You didn't answer my question so am asking again...all my pictures are dark and blurry - help

There are two possible problems:

1. The camera is defective.
2. Operator error.

In most cases, #2 is the answer. Digital cameras are convenient, but are sensitive. They have very bright flash units and often wash out the picture that you are trying to take, especially if the item is reflective, you are close to it, and taking the shot straight on. Thus, many users turn the flash off to get the picture to look better. Now the camera has to work differently. In order to get the right amount of light to get a good picture, it will slow down the shutter response. This lets more light onto the CCD and results in a brighter picture without the flash. BUT, the slower speed means that you must be very still in order to prevent blurring, and many users cannot get the hang of it. Also, some cameras do not adjust well to lower light and thus are not only blurry, but dark as well. Try shooting different scenes, indoor as well as outdoor, short, mid and long range in different lighting conditions. If everything is dark and blurry, regardless of the situation, then as a last resort, have another person try to take a few shots. If they are no better at it, then blame the camera. Otherwise, just practice with it until you get good at it. Some cameras are more user-friendly than others.

If this is an older rear projection TV as the model number indicates, you can unplug and remove back cover.

Inside you will see three large round black lens---these are for the 3 picture tubes: Clean all the dust and dirt off of them with either a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

The lens are the light source for your picture and if dusty the picture will gradually become darker and some what blurry looking.

hope this helps you.

Sony Cyber-shot takes lots of blurry pictures in

first thing you can do is to try reverting cam back to factory do that initialize the'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 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'll see a flashing green indicator on the screen that means cam is focusing.when the indicator stops blinking cam is ready for the shutter button all the 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:)

Blurry picture

Try adjusting the focus ring around the lens. Poor quality try adjusting room lighting or you may need to upgrade to a better webcam.

When taking photos at a basketball game and with my setting on the sports setting my pictures are coming out blurry and out of focus. How might I correct this?

Does the background look blurry? I suspect what you are getting is called motion blur. You need a faster shutter speed, which is either possible by having more light in the room or a faster lens.

If you want to try to get the best shot (with your existing equipment) possible of sports under low light conditions you may have to set some controls manually.
Use the Av mode, and set the Av number to the smallest one possible.
Adjust the ISO by pushing the ISO button on the back and setting it to the highest value (note: this results in a "noisy" picture, you will sacrifice color and see some specks in dark areas)
Set your frame advance to continuous by pressing the button on the left of the circle and setting it to the one that looks like multiple pictures.
And set your focus to "AI Servo" by pressing the "AF" button to the right of the circle and choosing "AF Servo".
Then shoot away.

Let me know how that works.

Really Dark Viewfinder

That would explain the darkness if the lens is stopped down. It would seem the aperture control is faulty on the camera body. Normally, the aperture remains open until you take the picture. It is only closed down while the shutter is open.

Trying to take pictures in low light conditions inside a theater.

when you use high ISO like 800-1600 it will create big novice on image, and when you using law ISO it will be dark for sure.
so the solution is switch cam to TV mode and put into very law shutter speed and use ISO 200-400,make sure you are connected to tripod or else you will not get fine results with law shutter speed. point is when you use law shutter speed camera will take more light to censor even with law ISO your images will be perfect.
