What mode are you in? If you're not in one of the point&shoot modes the flash won't pop up automatically, and thus with a slow shutter speed you'll get blurry pictures.

I have the D40x. Only thing i can think of is the little sensor thing on the front down and to the left of the release button. If you have your finger over it, the flash don't work and the focus won't work right. "Infrared assist" in the manual. Myself, I use the sb400 strobe flash cause the popup flash uses too much power from the camera battery.

I have Nikon Coolpix S80000. It becomes blurry when I use the telephoto lense and for night photos too. What settings should I have it on to avoid this? Anne


You could raise the ISO or better yet, use a tripod. In dim light and when using telephoto, the camera uses a slower shutter speed and any movement from you results in a blurry picture.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area...


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.

The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This may not necessarily be an error.. just a setting that you have put in place in your menu.

Why are my pictures so blurry.. HELP PLEASE!!


Hi Lindsay Davi,

First, make sure you have the file size set to the highest size and highest quality. Small file size and low quality settings produce small files with pixelization.

Second, no camera performs as well in low light as it does in bright light. It sounds like you are new to photography, so you should start out by shooting in bright light - outdoors in the sun. Once you know how to take good photos in the sun, then you can try taking photos when it is overcast, or in bright shade (on a sunny day but outside of the direct sunlight). As you develop more experience in taking photos you can try more difficult lighting situations such as indoors.

Flash lighting is difficult because the light "falls off" quickly as the distance from the flash to the subject increases. The camera's flash tries to put out enough light to illuminate both the subject closest to the camera and to also try to light the background, but this is often impossible. So the subject is too bright, and the background remains dark. If your subject is further away, the lighting evens out some. If your subject is close to the background (e.g. standing in front of a light colored wall) the camera will get the flash exposure set to a better value and the photos will come out better.

It would also help to get a book on basic photography.

How to set up 50 mm lenst for wedding photos .. and flash


Sorry this is too late, perhaps it will be useful to others. I hope you used a different lens for the wedding!

You can't use the 50mm 1.8 lens on the D40x unless you focus manually. This is because the D40x only supports autofocus with AF-S and AF-I lenses. The focus motor and drive mechanism for other AF lenses was omitted to make the camera smaller, lighter and cheaper.

Blurry indoor photos C-750


Use A mode and set the biggest aperture you can set (f3.5 ?) this this will then allow the camera the fastest shutter for the availbe light. In low light conditions this still may onlt be 1/4 sec which is still to slow for hand holding a camera. Best you turn your flash on huh.
