Before taking pictures my lcd is blurry but my pictures are great?

If the LCD image is blurry all the time there could be an issue with the screen itself. If it only gets blurry just before you take the photo it's just doing a quick focus before the photo is taken and you're seeing that happen.

Nikon D90,,,brandnew..the LCD screen flickers when recording a movie and when playback pictures they first come up a little blurry and then when they come to sharp focus the picture shrinks


The D90 movie mode is not perfect.
Keep the camera steady when shooting movies to reduce flicker.

It sound like you are not in focus when you start recording the movie. Press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press ok to record.
If you do not want the camera to change focus in shot keep the shutter halfway down.

I hope this helps.

Pictures are appear blurry when reviewing them. I focus the camera object appears clear after I snap the picture it becomes blurry as it is being save for review.

Question : Why are my pictures out of focus (blurry)? Answer : This problem can occur for one or more reasons. Here are some common causes and suggested solutions.
  • The lens is dirty. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt. Wipe the lens gently with a soft, lint-free cloth or an untreated lens-cleaning tissue. Do not use cleaning solution unless it is designed specifically for camera lenses.
  • The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera has a recommended distance for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures.
  • The subject was not within the effective range of the flash. Each camera has an effective flash range.
  • The camera did not focus or expose the picture correctly. For the best possible pictures, press the shutter button halfway and hold. When the Ready light or framing marks turn green, press the shutter button completely down to take the picture.
  • The LCD screen Preview feature was not used to take a picture in Close-Up mode. Always use the Preview feature in Close-Up mode to confirm focus and to frame the subject properly. If the Preview feature is not used, the LCD will not display an accurate view of the subject.
  • The subject or camera moved. Hold the camera very steady when taking a picture, or place the camera on a flat, stable surface. You may want to consider using a tripod or monopod.

LCD screen is extremely blurred

It is probably not the LCD itself, but an element that is protecting the LCD is bent out of shape.

What is CCD?

A CCD is the Charged Coupling Device. It is the IC chip that scans image from the lens into binary data so that it can be stored onto your memory card. Sometimes they can have different results in light because they are photo senstive and can burn out. That is why it's very important never to shoot pictures in direct sunlight with these unless you have a filter becuase the direct sunlight can burn out the CCD unit.
