Why do I get blurry pictures on screen even when I'm focusing.

Battery is fully charged.Used new charger and the old one, so it can't be either of them not working properly.

Adding to Steve Answer, I was told to set my camera on sports mode when action is taking place and it did the trick so depending if there is movement taking place by your subject that will help. the other point, if you are taking night pictures or in darker light with out a flash your best bet is a tripod. any type of camera movement makes the picture blurry. One more thing, and its simple, make sure your lens is clean, smudges defiantly make the picture blurry. I see this happening a lot with phone cameras, fingerprints cause picture clarity issues.

Go to MENU. Then TOOLS. Make sure Motion Detection is in AUTO.
If that is on AUTO then Put the camera on a hard surface (like tripod) and focus and see if image is still blurry. Lastly, it is difficult to focus in some conditions. Move the focus point, you can click on the screen to change it. Blur can be caused by: long exposures, camera motion during photograph, bad conditions unable to focus.

The focus routine in this camera gets confused often. It can be frustration. It will only be in focus when it is GREEN before you shoot and the camera is not shaking. At night it can take great night shots with a TRIPOD and Exposure set to -1 to -2.

Xantrex XPower PowerPack 300 will not charge even after replacing both battery and adapter. What else can I try?


Either charger has an issue or new battery is boogus. Check charger output for specs. Subject battery to a few discharge/charge cycles. If charger is definitely good and battery will not charge fully after a few cycles then you have confirmed that new battery is bogus.

Battery not charge


the battery may have developed a memory from continually recharging a partially used battery. The battery charges to this point and reads fully charged but when used it shows as flat because the charged portion is the bit that is used and not the whole battery. Replace the battery with a new one and only charge the battery when it shows as flat.

It seems to be focusing, but the pictures are blurry - lens is clean, same issue when auto focusing or manual focusing. Doesn't seem to make a difference if I hold the shutter down only halfway to give it...


Please make sure that you're using fully charged battery pack.
Remove the battery and reinsert after 1 minute.
Reset the camera by following the reset procedure from the manual of the Camera.
If the issue persists again, service is required

Well i tried to take a picture and i took it and then it turned off once i took the picture


Sounds like the batteries.

Digital cameras are noteably, very demanding power suckers.
If they don't have brand new batteries, they shut off.

They requre top brand (Energizer or Duracell) batteries, and once they are used for even a short time; they will not be enough either.
(Dont' throw them out though, other less demanding things like Remote controlls will gladly use them for years)

The best bet is to use Rechargeable batteries, or have a $100/month budget for duracells.

Statistics you will need to look for in Rechargeable batteries are:

Type; Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)

The Metal Hydride rechargeable battery is best since it charges faster and retains it charge longer, the old fashioned Nickel Cadmium battery used to be the best, but not any longer.

Rating: 900mAh; 1800mAh; 2200mAh; others not mentioned.

Unimportant note: The mAh means Milli Amphere Hours, which means how much power the battery cell will hold when fully charged. It is measured in Ampheres (Amps) per Hour, or in this case Milliamperes (1/1000 of an amp), but that's not important to know; all rechargeable batteries are rated by this number.

The number of mAh's you want are about 1000 or more,

Generally it's the more mAh's you have the more you can take pictures. Such as 900mAh will get about 50 to 250 pictures, but 1800mAh will get you twice as much.

Last note on Rechargable batteries: Only use a LiMH charger for LiMH batteries, and use a NiCd Charger for NiCd batteries.
If a charger dosn't say what type of batteiries it charges, it's the old fashioned NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) from the 1900's when that was the only type of rechageable battery.

Good luck with your Digital Camera.

Blurry out come


Hi George

It sounds like a lens issue... Try:
1. cleaning lens (carefully!)
2. Could be condensation I suppose. Unlikely but make sure its fully warmed up and dry.
3. It could be a lens element misaligned possibly due to impact damage. Needs pro repair then.
4. Just a wild thought - it's not been left permanantly in some close-up mode giving a very out of focus effect?

Hope this helps,
Regards
Martin

I have a ex-z77 it is just under 1 year old the camera does not switch on even after the battery has been on charge. when the battery is charging the charger light flashes, im sure the light used to stay...


Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer.
