Many of these digital video cameras are not very good for taking still photos. They are optimized for taking moving video pictures. There are many technical reasons for this.

If you want to take still photos, you will find that even a low cost digital still camera will be much better than most any of the video cameras.

Likewise, if you try to take moving pictures with a still camera that gives the movie option, you will find that it will not do as good as a dedicated video camera for the application. This is why manufactures go to the trouble to make both types of cameras.

If your video camera has a flash option for photos and it does not work for still pictures, consult the user guide about how to set this up. If it is properly set up, and it still does not work, then there is probably a fault in the logic control for the flash unit. This will then require factory level service.

Vivitar 850w. Picture very dark , how do I turn on flash light?


The flash instructions begin on page 25 of the manual. Keep in mind that the flash is for still photos, not for videos.

Picture is very blurry on screen what can i do to stop this please


Ah, my best guess would be that you have the auto-focus setting turned off. You'll have to go into the menu options (not sure exactly which ones) and look for either "Focus" or "Auto Focus" and set it from manual, to auto. Play around with the settings, get used to what they do, check in the owners manual if there's something you're not sure of, and if this doesn't fix the problem post again and I'll see what I can find out.

My problem is blurry photos. Problem occurs when taking pictures over a few feet away. I have tried manual focus, with no improvement. The pictures are blurry but I don't think it's a focus problem. No...


You haven't switched the camera to "macro" mode by any chance? Flash should eliminate camera shake as the source of the problem. If it isn't macro mode, then it sounds like a fault requiring the repair shop.

My photo's are not sharp and clear. What am I doing wrong?


you could be doing nothing wrong, These cameras have auto focus and when there pas there prime, you need to get them fixed basically.

If the output is out of focus more then likely the auto focus is your issue.

Hope this does help, would be considerate if you do leave a rating or feedback before you go, Thanks

Picture still blurred on record mode


Your problem sounds like a focus problem. Could be that it's on manual focus and you're hitting the sweet spot only in full zoom? From the manual: 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button.  M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus.  Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again. Hope it works out, let us know!
