Question about Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My daughter has a Coolpix S210 and when we try to take a picture it is blurry/out of focus. I did a factory reset of settings but it didn't help. Any ideas if this can be fixed or what could have caused it?

    I put it on my desk to test it and held very still. Held the button down half way to let it focus too and they are still blurry. Tried to take quite a few pictures but all were blurry. This started afer my Daughter's trip to Florida, it was fine before the trip.

What probably happened was some sand got in the lens sockets. i have the same camera and that happened to me. so mess around with the lens like tap on the outside of the larger lens circle and twist it around. mine was a little worse than yours...i ended up using a wrench to twist the lens and then the lens worked perfectly fine! try it right when you turn it on and the lens opens up then pop the battery out and there u can mess with it. hope it works out.

Take a few pictures with the camera on a tripod or a firm surface. Are they still blurry? Are you pressing the shutter button halfway to allow the camera to lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? Have someone watch while you take a picture...do you move when pressing the shutter?

Nikon coolpix S6000 won't focus


To focus lightly press the shutter button (the one that takes pictures). Pushing it half way tells the camera to focus. When you're ready push it the rest of the way in and it should take a nice crisp photo. If not there's a problem. Take it to a repair shop, replace it, just rely on your smartphone, or learn to deal with blurry pictures. I'd personally go with the smartphone as you always need it anyway.

The picture has a delayed action


It's not possible to take a photo in a second, because the camera needs to get in focus the object you're taking picture of.

You have a square on your display that indicates where the focus will be.
With whatever function you use, you need to press the shutter button halfway and wait for the camera to focus on the object. When it's focused you will hear the click and the square will turn green.
Now your pictures shouldn't be blurry.

NIKON Coolplix S210 can't take photo in flash mode


If the flash is on and you can't take photos, it could be that the flash circuit has gone bad. Make sure the camera is focused first though, before you try to take the pictures. Many times if the camera can't focus on something, it wont take a picture.

After taking pictures it come out blurry


1) Make sure all settings are set to "Auto".
2) The picture button has 2 stages, it takes a little practice, but after a while you can feel them.

The first stage tells the camera you're about to take a photo so get to it, setup the focus and set up the exposure setting.

The second executes the photo.

3) What you have to do is pause between stages 1 and 2 to give the camera a moment to focus properly. Then continue with taking the shot.

4) The other thing which can cause blurred photo's is camera shake, try and hold it as still as you can.

Blurred focus & pictures on Nikon s210


can u try to reset the factory settings of the device....

Blurry pictures


When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Also try to reset the camera back to factory defaults as there could be a setting that is causing the images to be blurry. To reset the camera - have the camera in shooting mode - go to Menu - left arrow to reset and press ok. Highlight yes and press ok. This will reset the camera back to factory settings. See if this clears up the blurry images.
