SOURCE: blurry pictures

switch the command dial to auto (camera icon) turn the power on and press the buttons on the camera that have green dots next to them simultaneausly until the top screen flashes. This should undo any erroneous settings you may have inadvertantly made and re-sets the camera to factory default settings.

SOURCE: the pictures come out blurry and not close up.

The problem occurs when the mode in which you are taking picture is not appropriate. You should change your mode based on surrounding conditions and not on your mode. It you are having lack of light than you should select the night option if you are not having lights or flash available. .

You didn't answer my question so am asking again...all my pictures are dark and blurry - help


There are two possible problems:

1. The camera is defective.
2. Operator error.

In most cases, #2 is the answer. Digital cameras are convenient, but are sensitive. They have very bright flash units and often wash out the picture that you are trying to take, especially if the item is reflective, you are close to it, and taking the shot straight on. Thus, many users turn the flash off to get the picture to look better. Now the camera has to work differently. In order to get the right amount of light to get a good picture, it will slow down the shutter response. This lets more light onto the CCD and results in a brighter picture without the flash. BUT, the slower speed means that you must be very still in order to prevent blurring, and many users cannot get the hang of it. Also, some cameras do not adjust well to lower light and thus are not only blurry, but dark as well. Try shooting different scenes, indoor as well as outdoor, short, mid and long range in different lighting conditions. If everything is dark and blurry, regardless of the situation, then as a last resort, have another person try to take a few shots. If they are no better at it, then blame the camera. Otherwise, just practice with it until you get good at it. Some cameras are more user-friendly than others.

While trying to take pictures of my son's Friday night football games, the pictures come out super dark when I use the flash. If I turn the flash off, the pictures are light, but all blurry. How can I fix...


The flash is only good up to 10 feet....are you that close? If not, turn off the flash and turn up the ISO to make the camera more sensitive to the lower light levels.

Of course a good ol' flash will do the trick. but if there is no flash available, you can make the ISO higher and also set the apperture lower and shutter speed slower.

What is the best setting for indoor concerts? Alot of my pictures are blurry & either too dark or too light.


No flash, right? Concert pix are some of the hardest to do. 80% recovery is pretty good.
Don't use a speed slower than 60 (1/60th second).
try us use telephoto as much as possible, leaving the dark areas out of the picture. The camera metering gets confused when you have too much audience and other areas that are not lit up like the stage.

Other "experts" may have more "solutions" for you...

Picture comes out dark


Reset you cam settings: Take the batt out for longer than 10 sec and reinsert them.

Find a link between the SCN that are dark and blurry and the ones that aren't. Is it when using flash taking pics outside or inside in certain modes etc.

Camera sucks


Hi,
Here's how to turn on the flash, which should help with the pictures being dark and blurry:
If your phone is on Android 2.1:
  1. Open the Camera application
  2. Press the menu button
  3. Touch "Flash mode"
  4. Select "Auto" (if you want it to decide when it needs to flash) or "On" (if you want it to always flash)
If your phone is on Android 2.2:
  1. Open the Camera application
  2. Touch the little lightning bolt icon on the right side (second from the bottom)
  3. Select "Auto" (if you want it to decide when it needs to flash) or "On" (if you want it to always flash)
Hope this helps!
Let us know if you have any other questions or problems.

Blurry pictures


Both of these problems are caused by underexposure. There are several causes for this. If you are set in AUTO MODE check the shutter speed and lens opening in the view finder. If the speed is less than 100 and the shutter is less than 5 and you are not using flash. You will probably get blured and dark pictures.  Practice shooting with your settings outside in sunlight , inside with lamplight, inside with flash and all of the above with motion. Check the exposure after each shot and make adjustments. In a short time you will get very good at setting your camera.

Taking pictures


Many of these digital video cameras are not very good for taking still photos. They are optimized for taking moving video pictures. There are many technical reasons for this.

If you want to take still photos, you will find that even a low cost digital still camera will be much better than most any of the video cameras.

Likewise, if you try to take moving pictures with a still camera that gives the movie option, you will find that it will not do as good as a dedicated video camera for the application. This is why manufactures go to the trouble to make both types of cameras.

If your video camera has a flash option for photos and it does not work for still pictures, consult the user guide about how to set this up. If it is properly set up, and it still does not work, then there is probably a fault in the logic control for the flash unit. This will then require factory level service.

Blurry pictures


You're both right. The pictures are blurry because the shutter speed is too slow, but it's too slow because there isn't enough light for it to be faster. Try this: Set the ISO to 800 Set the camera at shutter priority mode, and enter 1/160 for wide angle to mid-zoom, and 1/400 for full zoom. If the pictures come out too dark ( and you're too far to use the flash ), you can always brighten them on the computer. But if they're blurry, you can't really fix that.
