Photos are coming out blurry


There could be several reasons for this - pick the most likely !
If the entire image is blurry, with no sharp detail, it could be camera shake, or subject movement, especially at longer focal lengths (i.e. at the telephoto end of the zoom range). Try using a tripod or other firm support and see if that improves things.
If only parts of the image are blurry (i. e. the background is sharp but closer objects are not) then the autofocus system could be selecting the wrong area upon which to focus - try using lock focus on the subject, then re-compose.
The front element of protective filter could need cleaning - carefully!
The camera could have suffered a knock which has dislodged one or more of the internal lens elements - in which case, a visit to the repair centre is called for.

I have a Nikon 40x and whenever I zoom in to take a picture, the picture is blurry. However, when the camera is zoomed out all the way the picture is clear. How can I fix this? Or is there something wrong...


Probably because at the longer end of the zoom range you are getting camera shake. On the wide angle setting shake will not be nearly so noticeable. Use a tripod for long telephoto shots or practise squeezing the shutter release really gently-like the trigger on a gun ;-)

Pictures are appear blurry when reviewing them. I focus the camera object appears clear after I snap the picture it becomes blurry as it is being save for review.


Question : Why are my pictures out of focus (blurry)? Answer : This problem can occur for one or more reasons. Here are some common causes and suggested solutions.
  • The lens is dirty. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt. Wipe the lens gently with a soft, lint-free cloth or an untreated lens-cleaning tissue. Do not use cleaning solution unless it is designed specifically for camera lenses.
  • The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera has a recommended distance for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures.
  • The subject was not within the effective range of the flash. Each camera has an effective flash range.
  • The camera did not focus or expose the picture correctly. For the best possible pictures, press the shutter button halfway and hold. When the Ready light or framing marks turn green, press the shutter button completely down to take the picture.
  • The LCD screen Preview feature was not used to take a picture in Close-Up mode. Always use the Preview feature in Close-Up mode to confirm focus and to frame the subject properly. If the Preview feature is not used, the LCD will not display an accurate view of the subject.
  • The subject or camera moved. Hold the camera very steady when taking a picture, or place the camera on a flat, stable surface. You may want to consider using a tripod or monopod.

My pictures turn out blurry


try using a camera tripod or leaning against something sturdy, like a building or tree, especially when really zoomed in! As the light dims, the camera will choose a slower shutter speed and/or wider aperture (in automatic) to produce a picture that is not too dark. As a result, the camera may take blurry pictures, especially if the camera or subject moves. There is a setting for landscape, which uses a very small aperture, and just about everything from close to far away can be in focus. Hope this helps!

Lens problem, no zooming capabilities and blurry images


This would need to be serviced something is wrong with the auto focus and this is inside the lens housing. I would take it into a camera shop and have the examin the autofocus.

Why do my Fun! Digital 320 pictures come out blurry?


Blurry images can be caused by any or all of the following: * Distance/Focus range -- the Fun! Digital 320 has a fixed focus range of 3 - 6 feet (1.8 meters) for brightly lit indoor photography, 3 ft. (1 meter) - infinity for outdoor photography. For best results, make sure that the camera is at least 3 feet away from the subject(s) when taking pictures. * Camera/Subject movement -- This is a common cause of blurriness, especially in low-light situations (see Lighting below). Hold the camera as steadily as possible while taking a photo, or use a tripod (a tripod mount is located on the bottom of the camera). Avoid subjects that are in motion. * Insufficient lighting -- the Fun! Digital 320 is designed for taking photos outdoors or in brightly lit environments. Inadequate lighting can exaggerate camera movement and contribute to blurred, "muddied," or uncrisp images. * Lens condition -- Check the lens periodically for smudges. If necessary, wipe the lens clean with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues. * Enlarging images using software -- otherwise normal digital images can appear to become blurry and/or blotchy when over-enlarged in software. To see an image's "true" appearance, use the software's Zoom In or Zoom Out feature to view it at 100%.

Pictures have come out blurry and out of focus


The most common problems that most new users encounter are: 1. Trying to focus closer than @7 ft. when zooming at greater than 6x. The camera won't do it, and that zoom is tempting. 2. Not waiting for the lens to focus before completing the shutter press. Try holding the shutter at half-press until you see the steady green indicator, then gently press fully to take the shot while holding as steady as you can. 3. Expecting too much from OIS. If you're seeing the "jitter" icon a lot, that means that you're into the range of slower shutter speeds that OIS might not be able to compensate for.You might try switching to a higher ISO speed (or turning on more lights)-- yes there will be more noise, but it'll quicken the shutter speed, and a non-blurry pic that's noiser is better than a clean blurry one. . . and you'll learn a little about what you're camera will do under different conditions. Also, you have to really make the effort to hold the cam steady, even with OIS, especially when using slow shutter speeds.

Blurry pictures


What you are experiencing is a phenomenon called camera shake. Camera shake is caused when there isn't enough light for the camera to set a fast shutter speed. The camera's shutter opens and has to stay open for up to several seconds for enough light to hit the CCD to capture the image. Most people cannot hold a camera perfectly still for more then 1/60th of a second. In addition, when the telephoto feature is used on an Ultra Zoom camera, the field of view becomes smaller. Since a lens with a large focal length provides a small picture area, even slight imperceptible camera movement will cause a blurred picture. To reduce camera shake, try one or more of the following when applicable: Change to a fast shutter speed. Put the camera on a flat surface or use a tripod. Brace yourself against a tree or wall. Put the camera in sports mode. For situations with low light, raise the ISO. (Please note this will impede image quality)

The pictures I take with my Kodak digital camera are not clear


One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below. The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model. The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures. The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range. The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.) You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error. The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
