There's something wrong with the focus of my camera. Everytime I take a picture it's blurry and it won't focus unless I zoom in. Is there a way for me to fix it?

ensure finger is not covering auto focus.

ensure camera is not in macro setting. look for icon like a flower this is only for close up shots and will cause bluring if subject is too far away.

check that camera is set in auto focus and not manual focus mode if it has this.

I hope this was helpful.

Picture focusing is all blured

you have a diopter next to the viewfinder. it's for
people who wear glasses, turn the small knob and it will focus what you see in the viewfinder. Green lines is your ccd - the sensor - the eye of the camera - see your local AUTHORIZED service center for repair of this issue

Actions shots are blured

The various solutions include:

try to set focus range (settings), to infinity or to an approximate distance to the object you need to take a photo of as sometimes the automatic setting does not always do a godd job at focusing , or look at the lens when it is on if its got grease use a wet camera lens cleaning kit (someone touched the glass of the lens ) a s grease makesa it hard for the camera to focus , hence blurrig or go into your options and lower the iso mode or take it off night node if any as the iso mode leads to high exposure time which means any light that changes would record as a smear hence blurring or use flash.

Fuzzy/out of focus pictures

This may sound kind of obvious, but have you cleaned the lens?

It's common to get finger prints or other marks on lenses, which result in blurred pics.

Blured viewfinder

Look at the viewfinder on the camera.

Now look on the LEFT side of the viewfinder; just above the swivel-screen.

You will see a little thumb wheel there.

That is the focus for the viewfinder. Move it up and down to bring the viewfinder into focus. (Don't forget to do this while you are looking through the viewfinder so you can see what you are adjusting.)

Easy fix. :)
