Turn on auto focus and when you are taking a shot let Auto-Focus adjust the blurry image in the viewfinder beforeyou take a shot. If you do not know how to do it please let me know and I will give you detailed instructions.

VIEW SCREEN IS SO BLURRY I CAN'T TELL WHAT ITS SHOWING.


Is it the viewfinder (that you hold up to your eye) or the screen that's blurry?
If the viewfinder is blurry, there should be a diopter adjustment to fix it, probably right above the rubber eye cup.
If the screen is blurry, you should take some pictures and video and view them on a computer. I they are sharp on the computer but blurry on the camera screen, there may be a problem with the screen and you may need to take it in for repair.
If the pictures are blurry on the computer as well, the camera may not be focusing properly. If you can't focus manually, or the camera can't focus when auto focus is turned on, you have good light, and aren't too close to your subject, then it may need to be serviced.

How do i take a shot with the camera?


On the icons screen, click camera icon. The camera automatically gets ready for taking a shot. Now, aim the lens situated on the top right (other) side of the phone, viewing the image on the screen, tap the 'camera image' above the Home Button. The snap is taken and saved automatically in the Camera Roll folder. To view the shot, simply touch the left-down icon (containing your snapshops), all the snaps can be seen by sliding the pics.

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully...


Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and the light from the lens goes to the image sensor. So...if the mirror is dirty, the picture will be fine but the viewfinder image will be dark or out of focus.

My FM10 focus screen does not focus, but split image works


I have seen bent mirrors and mis-aligned focus screens do this. It is possible for the film plane to be in focus while the viewfinder is out. you can test this with newspaper and a tape measure. buy a cheap roll of neg film and set up your camera on a tripod at a fixed distance, say 6ft. from the paper. Ideally I'd attach the paper to a light stand or the back of a chair. so that the paper is at 6ft, the back wall is at maybe 10ft. and there's something in the foreground in case its front focusing. then set the lens at what the scale says is 6ft regardless of what the viewfinder looks like. Shoot one frame with an aperture of f/2.8 on your 50mm. Shoot a second frame at f/16. rewind the film & develop it at a drug store or 1hr lab. if both images are sharp, the problem is in the mirror/ prism. if the 2.8 is OOF it's the mounting ring. I want you to shoot the F/16 to prove that the stop down lever is functioning.

MY CAMERA TAKES PHOTOS THAT APPEARS SHARP ON THE LCD BUT BLURRED AND DISFOCUSED AFTER DOWNLOAD.....


Your LCD is only a small preview screen. I have on many occasions tested a camera and viewed on the screen. When you view the image on a computer it is enlarged to a much larger image. If your pictures appear out of focus you may have a bad lens. Set your camera to the highest mega pixel rate and retake some test images. If these are blurred you have a bad lens.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

LCD screen not sharp / focusing when taking pictures


This camera is ancient by today's standards, at least 8 years old.

Your focus problem is that the back display is very low resolution, so it will never show a sharp image. 9MP should give a decent image when you view it on a computer. If not, you probably need to part with the camera. it is not worth much these days anyway.
