Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photos taken inside are fuzzy

Hi! I think this is a setting problem, but whenever (lately) I shoot a photo inside, they come out blurry like the person was moving (maybe the case). When I shoot outside, in natural lighting, the photos are clear. Please help and thanks in advance!

I think the exposure settings have changed and set to hi if you can get the exposure setting to normal [+/-] to 0 or the shutter has been set to low or the iso has been set to low

but if u are skeptic about going to settings and changing those all important combinations then safest way is to restoring to factory defaults and from there u can keep experimenting again

if there is anything else that you would like to know u can mail me at mail2pvs@gmail.com

happy clicking

Lumix pictures blurry


I would suggest that the image stabilizer might not be working right. Could you upload a photo to Flickr or other location where I could look at the EXIF, or list it here. I would like to see what the camera is writing to the image as the settings when the photo was taken.

Does it make a difference when the image stabilizer is on or off?

Poor quality pictures when taken inside of school gymnasium


The problem you face is that shooting good photos "inside a school" is a very difficult situation due to the low light. Your eyes can adjust to the low light, but there is only so much a camera can do to get good photos in a low light situation. The IXUS doesn't have a very fast lens or high ISO, so when you get into low light it has to use a slow shutter, which often means blurry images.

First, make sure the camera is shooting with the highest ISO settings. You will find the instructions on page 64 of your manual, and can also read them online here.

Second, use a tripod to stabalize the camera to minimize blur from camera shake.

Finally, if neither of these work then you will need to use a camera with better low-light capabilities, such as the Canon Powershot SX10 IS.

Fuzzy Images


There is insufficient light indoors, so the camera is selecting a slow shutter speed, which is causing camera shake, hence the 'fuzziness'.

This sounds like a battery issue. Make sure the battery is fully charged and make sure that your charger is working.

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised


As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.

Blurry pictures


There is a well documented problem with the W1 (and its brother, the P100). If you are shooting in good light, you will have no problem. If you are shooting in low light or flash, you will encounter various degrees of blurred photos. Unlike most cameras, the W1 has only two f-stops (f2.8 and f5.2). So the camera must select one or the other (nothing in between). The firmware in the camera will try to select f5.2 as long as it can in low light. This results in a slow shutter speed. And with flash you usually end up with a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second. A slow shutter speed is the cause of the blurred photos. If you can hold the camera perfectly still under low light conditins (and flash) you will get good photos. If you use the cameras manual mode and manually select a faster shutter speed you will get good photos. It appears that Sony could fix the problem with a firmware change so that the camera made better use of the ISO settings along with the f-stop selections. However, they have not done so.
