FinePix 5200 Blurry shots

When my camera was new I could zoom in on things and get a clear picture. Now when I zoom even halfway I get blurred pictures even in Auto mode. Could I have changed a setting or something that could cause this. I have missed alot of good shots this way.

Make sure you are shooting in a mode with the flash enabled and that should enable the anti-blur features of the camera

Shots are blurry

This issue can occur in the following circumstances:
The subject is too close to the camera lens Insufficient lighting Subject movement Camera movement Incorrect camera settings Incorrect camera operation Follow the steps below to help prevent taking pictures that appear blurry, out-of-focus or distorted.

If the camera has both an auto focus and manual focus mode, make sure it is set to auto focus. Make sure there is enough lighting to allow the camera to focus on the subject. Make sure the camera settings are set appropriately. When taking close-up or macro-type shots, ensure the subject is not closer than the minimum focus distance of the lens. Also, if the camera has a zoom option, set it to the W (wide-angle) position. If you have a fast-moving subject and the camera has a Program AE mode with a higher shutter speed (such as Sports action), make sure it is enabled. Also, if the camera has an ISO control, set it to a higher setting. If your camera has a SteadyShot/anti-blur function, ensure it is enabled. Aim the camera at the subject. Press the shutter button halfway down. NOTES:
Pressing the shutter button halfway down allows the camera to focus automatically. A flashing green indicator will be visible in the LCD or viewfinder. When the indicator stops flashing, focusing is finished and the camera is ready to take the picture. Some camera models have a Monitoring AF setting that can be selected which allows the camera to focus without the need to hold the button halfway down. Consult the instruction manual of the camera for information whether or not this is applicable for your model.

Blurred screen and photo

"...even though the screen is clear"...?

The screen is a tiny view of the picture and you cannot see all the details of the shot that way. The only way to be sure is to zoom in on the details when viewing the photo on the screen.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3 pictures never seem crisp and clear

TZ stands for Travel Zoom, which is code for Outside View shots. The TZ is supper in good light, not so much in lower light.

In side shots need to be with 8 feet of subject so the flash can reach. Use ISO and IS mode 2 settings, especially IS(Image Stabilization) on zoomed shots where ANY camera movement becomes amplified by the ZOOM.

Lastly, camera movement and/or subject movement will add blur to a shot. Squeeze off shot, don't push it off. Try to brace your camera against another object when possible, or hold you elbows against your sides when you can't. Treat taking a pic shot like you were taking a rifle shot. Stabilize yourself when possible and gradually squeeze off the shot when possible.

When low light cannot be avoided, try the night shot setting, which will keep the shutter open longer to gather more light, but will be much more venerable to camea movement at the same time.

See if there is a little key on the shots that wont download. if there is the they have been protected and may be unlocked for transfer in you camera menu. as for you focus problem make sure you are pressing the shutter down halfway to lock the focus on your subject otherwise it will focus on any part of the picture.

Blurred Pictures

1. What is the focal length of lens you are using? 2. Is the blur occurring with lens with a lower focal length than the telelens? 3. Do you still get a blur when you use the telelens with a tripod or a firm base? Regards Raman

Blurry pictures with Pentax K1000


It may be the equipment or it may be the way you are holding / taking the picture.

Here are suggestions on how to take better zoom lens pictures (this also applies to any camera) before you start diving into the equipment.

1) Use the fastest shutter speed possible. This reduces the amount of time of exposure, this limiting the amount of motion blur that can happen.
2) Don't hold the camera by hand. Either use a tri-pod or rest the camera on something stable, like a wall, rock, bench, etc. This makes it less likely that the camera will move when you are taking the picture, thus reducing motion blurr in the image.
3) If you have to hold the camera by hand, hold the zoom lens with your left hand (because it is more towards the center of gravity than the camera is) & try to slow your breathing & take the picture between heart beats.
4) Also, another thing that helps is to use a remote shutter release (such as that rubber bulb or plunger attached to the shutter release). I would also say using the self-timer would help, but the K1000 doesn't have that. This is so the camera doesn't shake from you pushing the shutter release button.
5) Make sure the lens is clean! Even get one of those lens pens from your local camera shop.

If you have tried all (or most of these) then its time to start looking at your equipment, such as . . . is your shutter getting stuck when exposing, thus lengthening the exposure and making for a blurring shot or do you need glasses? <grin -- which is why I find it really difficult to use manual focus equipement now, because my eye sight is really bad!>

Take care & Happy Imaging!
