Check and make sure you do not have the soft focus turned on. that will make the pictures "soft" in focus or seem out of focus.

My Canon Rebel XS will not auto focus correctly. It sounds like it is trying to focus, but only flashes and will not focus or take the picture.


Those quick fast flashes usually mean the camera is trying to find contrast to take the photo but it can't. The scene might be to dark and the camera can not set it's focus and there for cannot take a picture. Move the camera slightly from left to right on the subject and see if it can manage to set focus. It's normal for the camera to give out these quick flashes as it is trying to find some sort of contrast in the subject, turning on a room light might help this?

Now when you manually focus, then the camera does not have to use it's built in auto focus sensor and will let you take a photo when you manually focus on the subject.

Blurry pictures


You did not say which lens or lenses you are using, but most auto-focus lenses have a switch for selecting manual or auto-focus. First, check your camera's menu settings to make sure auto-focus is enabled and then your lens to make sure you did not accidently leave it in the manual focus position? If it is in the auto-focus position and still not taking sharp pictures, switch it to manual and see if you can get it to focus correctly. It is also possible that your auto-focus alignment is out because your camera was bumped, jolted or dropped. If realignment is necessary, you can send the camera and lens to Nikon for repair or find a knowledgeable camera repairman.

Why are all of my photos blurry? I have a Canon Rebel T2i


You have the focus set to manual. Either turn the focus ring yourself, or find the little switch on the lens that turns it on (MF = manual focus, AF = auto focus).

2 problems. I have the Coolpix L100. Sometimes my photos are blurry and also. there is a delay when I snap a photo which isnt good when trying to get action photos.


With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

If you take lots of action pictures, you will have to work on a technique of partially pressing the shutter to get focus in anticipation of the shot (perhaps focussing on where the action will occur), then holding it part-pressed until the moment you want to capture. This is really no more of a problem than setting an anticipatory focus on a manual focussing film camera use to be. Some more complex digital cameras will allow you to turn off auto focus and focus manually.

I have a Nikon D40x digital camera. The problem began when the screen began showing some type of diagram over the picture I had just taken. The camera then started having difficulty with auto focus. ...


Seems possible that the servo control /main processor control is faulty and will need help from Nikon service , It will be better to get a evaluation for the fault and so we can have a consenses on the fault.
get estimate and decide.

This is a great camera! Are you using the focus guide to focus on your main subject. Move the camera until your main subject is in the bos ten depress the shutter button 1/2 way down to focus the subject. Leave you finger there at the focus point-You can then move the camera to take in more objects or people and gently push the shutter all the way down. Generally, the causes of out of focus photos are:

the camera in the wrong mode-just start with the general mode-usually a little camera symbol

do not change any settings-if you have go to the menu button and settings and go back to default settings

the focus feature of the camera 9explained above is not being used

You are too close to the subject (use the zoom instead)

You are experiencing camera movement by pressing on the shutter too hard or moving your hands. A tripod always works best.


You can go to www.panasonic.com and obtain a manual for your camera if you do not have it.

If your camera still gives you blurry photos, please get back to me with any info that might help- have you dropped it or gotten it wet or anything like that?

Thank you for using Fix YA and please don't forget to rate me!
