Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera

Blurry when using flash

Pics are blurry when using the flash. The camera seems to focus not on the group of people I'm shooting, but on the background - only when I use the flash - leaving faces blurry. This happens for anyone taking a picture, and it didn't used to occur under the same circumstances. Have had the camera not quite two years.
Thanks for your help!

Some of my pictures are blurry using a cannon rebel 3. how can i fix this problem?


There are several possible causes for blurry pictures.
1) Camera motion. If everything is blurry, it's most likely because the camera moved while the picture was being taken. Make sure your shutter speed is fast enough if you're handholding the camera (longer lenses require faster shutter speed). Alternatively, put your camera on a stable surface, such as a tripod or a tabletop.
2) Subject motion. If the subject is blurry but the background is sharper, then the subject may have moved while the picture was being taken. Use a faster shutter speed. Raise the ISO if needed. There are limits, of course. If you're trying to photograph a fast-moving object in the dark, you probably won't be able to.
3) Improper focus. If the subject is blurry but something else in the picture is sharp, then the camera probably focused on the wrong object. Move the focus selector to the subject you want in focus. Alternatively, center the viewfinder on the subject, press the shutter button halfway to lock focus, then reframe and shoot.
Without any more specific information as to what and how your pictures are blurry, I'm afraid the above is all I can give you.

Pictures are blurry.


Try pressing the shutter button half way to let it focus before you shoot. You also may want to make sure the camera is in auto mode and not set to any particular setting.

Blurry and out of focus


Hey ammarhazem,
What is most likely the cause of your blurry pictures is that the on camera flash is not powerful enough to provide light coverage to your subject and the movement of your subject is causing the blurry images. Another problem I see is that you are shooting in Program mode, because in program mode you should have no control over the aperture and if your subject is far away and you are using the on camera flash you would want as wide of an aperture as you can get. I would shoot in aperture priority where you can choose the aperture and the camera sets the shutter for you and I would also invest in a more powerful hotshoe mounted flash. In regards to your red eye problem it is probably due to the distance of your subject from the flash also. How red eye reduction works is the flash fires a # of times prior to the exposure to shrink the pupils so the flash doesn't reflect of the subjects retina which produces the red eye problem. A hotshoe mounted flash would also solve this problem because the angle of the flash would not be as parallel to the lens as the on camera flash would be. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Pics are blurry


Have you changed the settings in the camera? When are you getting this problem? Is it when you try to shoot in low light?Does it appear like the pictures are shaken or is it out of focus? If they are shaken, use a higher ISO to shoot. If it appears out of focus, first check the lens for some smears. Clean the lens with a clean dry cotton cloth.

Check if there is fungus on the lens (this appears like spider's web or crack marks). If there is fungus, or you are still getting pctures blurred, take it to an authorized service center.

I have a Casio EX 260, not the EX-S600


Try resetting camera. If that doesn't work more than likely there is a lens error. 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS lens not focusing


I have had to replace the focusing servo motor is these before. The problem of seeking without locking in may mean the same for your lens. Do check for a dirty filter on the front and look to see if the rear optic is dirty or cloudy first. I'm assuming other lenses work fine on your camera.
