I have a nikon d500 my pictures are not sharp and out of focus

    What camera do you have? You posted the question under the N65 film camera but mentioned a D500, which doesn't exist. Perhaps a D50 or D5000?

    The three main reasons for unsharp pictures are focus, subject motion, and camera motion.

    Do you have autofocus turned on? What lens(es) are you using? Do you get different results with manual focus?

    Are you sure the problem is with focus? Try putting the camera on a tripod (or a tabletop) and use the self-timer to take a picture of something stationary (and not too close to the camera). Use both autofocus and manual focus and look at the results.

Long lens won't focus when zoomed out


I trust you are looking at something with sharp contrast, like a light pole. Lens can't focus without something crisp to see. If other lens work fine, than this lens need a trip to a lens repair shop. I use KEH Photo. Honest, reliable and cheaper and faster than Nikon. A visit to your local camera store might be in order, but if they send it in for repair for you, it will cost more.

Nikon l120 focus is off


I don't know what your perception of proper focusing is.
If there is enough light and enough contrast in the subject you want sharp (in focus) on your picture, you only have to point the camera to the point you want in focus on. Then you press the shutter release button half and wait till the camera is in focus. This is indicated by the focus point on top of the screen. as long as you keep the button half way down, you can move the camera and the focus will not be changed. So you can make changes to the composition. Then when you press the button down complete the picture should be sharp, where you focused on.
Don't try to make a picture, by pressing the button complete. as quick as you can, because the camera won't react as fast as a DSRL.

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.

There's a diopter adjustment control near the right edge of the viewfinder. Look through the viewfinder at a blank wall and adjust this until the focus marks appear sharp.

I got a Nikon D5000 and 18-55mm lens. When I take pictures using focal between 18-24 mm the deep of field is not sharp especially for landscape pictures. I made at list 200 pictures (the same image) test...


We need to understand Depth of Field first. Depth of field increase in two ways, one with the Aperture setting and one with the distance the lens is focused on. Example, at F22 focused at 10 feet the Depth of Field will be (assume for the example) from 7ft to 20 ft. You need to use the camera in aperture mode, set it to a "Slow" aperture, the larger the number the slower the aperture. Example F2.8 is "fast or Open, F22 is slow or "closed". The problem is not in your lens or camera. To get maximum Depth of fuield you need to shoot in Aperture Mode, set the f-stop to F11 or slower, F16, F22. The use manual focus to focus the lens. Using auto focus is "ok" for many scenes but to get MAX Depth of field you cannot let the camera select the object to focus on. Here is the BEST way to do it. Setup your camera in Aperture mode, set F-stops as suggested above. Focus on the subject that you want and shoot. Dont forget, the camera will be using slow shutter speeds like this so camera shake will create blurr that can be confused with out of focus. Shooting slow at F11 to F22 usually required a good tripod. Also, another thing to know, Field of focus is deeper "behind" the spot you are focusing on than in "Frint" of the point you are focused on. Good luck, Worm1855

Nikon D90,,,brandnew..the LCD screen flickers when recording a movie and when playback pictures they first come up a little blurry and then when they come to sharp focus the picture shrinks slightly....do...


Hello,

The D90 movie mode is not perfect.
Keep the camera steady when shooting movies to reduce flicker.

It sound like you are not in focus when you start recording the movie. Press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press ok to record.
If you do not want the camera to change focus in shot keep the shutter halfway down.

I hope this helps.

Nikon D40 vertical focus problem


Make sure the camera is using the appropriate focus sensor.

Does the problem occur when you focus manually?

Are you handholding the camera? Many people don't hold the camera as steady when holding it vertically. Try putting the camera on a tripod or other steady surface and see what happens.

Every time i take a picture with my nikon d-40 the pictures are blurry. the camera is on auto focus but i can't seem to get the picture to come out clear. any suggestions?


Is your shutter speed fast enough? If not, you'll need a faster shutter speed or a tripod.

Are you using the proper focus sensor? Is the entire image blurry or just portions of it?

What happens if you focus manually? If it comes out sharp, then there's a problem either with the lens or the autofocus system on the camera. Have you tried it with a different lens?

Is the AF switch on the lens set to A?
