Question about Nikon D700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

After a few thousand really sharp pics, all of a sudden the shots are coming out slightly fuzzy, hardly noticeable at normal resolution, but especially evident when enlarged. Tried several different lenses with no difference. Doesn't seem to be related to settings, as we tried several with the same result. Same difference whether raw or jpeg.

If the AF is set to release then the camera will release the shutter before focus is attained. Set it to focus only and see if it improves. Don't leave it like that, you will miss pictures.
Shoot some pictures with the center AF point only in single release and see if the focus is consistently landing in front of or behind what you wanted in focus. A penny on the sidewalk shot at a 45 degree angle in aperture priority with the lowest A number possible is a good quick one. For super fine tuning with a f2.8 or faster use a fuzzy plant branch like a tomato plant. If whats in focus is always in front of or behind what you focused on then you need too adjust the focus(back focus) in AF fine tune until it lands where it should. It's an annoying process that involves shooting, adjusting, shoot again, see if its better or worse, adjust, shoot and repeat. On zoom lenses use the middle on the zoom range because it will usually go from back to front focusing on the long and short end. The camera remembers each lens and the process must be repeated for each lens.
Last thing I can think of is the one that no one wants to hear and is most likely the problem, Camera Handling. People have a tendency to get sloppy after getting use to a camera. I have noticed that the VR lenses don't like people that stab the shutter button. It wants to remove fine vibration and a harsh stab makes it jump back to center and if the shutter opens at the same time it will put fine motion blur in the picture and looks out of focus.

Images and letters are fuzzy on my Westinghouse Monitor


Your monitor settings are not correct or you have a bad monitor cable. Wide screen settings are sometimes hard to figure when you have a wide screen Westinghouse mntr. You have tried all common resolutions? 1024 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 720? I assume your video drivers are the latest?You have tried all common resolutions? 1024 x 768, 1280 x 800, 1280 x 720?

Fuzzy screen


I have exactly the same problem with my W880i. Suddenly, one day, out of the blue it went half and half, the right side completely blank(yet still with the back light on - I think - ). And a few months later (now). It suddenly randomly went completely blank - back light definitely on -. It happened today,and I am desperately searching for a solution. If I take the battery out, put it back in, turn it on, I can feel the vibrate, and notice a slight change in colour on the screen. But it stays completely blank, and hasn't changed in hours. So ANY help would be appreciated.

check your sharpness setting, it should be very low and even in the negatives possibly on a plasma. I was told the sharpness option was for crt tube tv's anyway

My sony cyber shot dsc-p32 camera


just change the resolution
set the camera on photo mode
then press trash button, it should display the resolutions
i recomend 1.3 megapixels for normal pictures, when you need the high resolution change it to better
also if you use the options of the photo mode you can change from fine to normal picture quality

S 5i Question: What are the best settings for quick pics


Hi: Let's go by parts... :) You want to print your photos in 8 x 10 inches without bluring some areas on the picture... in Europe we talk about centimeters. It's something like 20 x 25 centimeters. If you want the picture to be with the best quality for printing, then you have to set your image resolution in, at least, 300 dpi (dots per inch) - this you have to do with software, like Adobe Photoshop CS2. For you to change the resolution of your picture to print with that size without losing any quality, you have to have a picture with, at least, 3000 x 2400 pixels. So, it's better for you to take pictures with the highest quality in your camera, 2560 x 1920, and still you loose some detail. When you have a picture with the resolution 1024 x 768 taken by any normal camera, you will get a resolution of 72 dpi (the same resolution that pictures in the Internet or monitors have. When you print it at your size, 8 x 10 inches, the computer or the printer, one of them is going to change the resolution of your pictures. That process is called "interpolation" and it means that some pixels are generated with middle colors. It's dificult for me to explain the process without showing images but I think that if your search through Google engine you will find lost of pages talking about it... maybe one day I can post in my site about that subject ;) If you have any question about what I tryed to explain just post again ;) Regards
