Question about Samsung S1050 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Taking close ups

Whenever i get close to an object to shoot it, it is blurry, but the background is sharp. is it possible on the samsung s1050 to change it so that this is reversed (the object i am closely shooting is sharp and the background is blurry). i know this can be done on other cameras, i have seen it so many times before in photographs, but i cant figure out how to change it on this camera.

You have to put the camera in macro mode. that camera has 3 different macro settings. auto macro, macro, and super macro. here is a link to the manual if you dont have it. macro stuff is on page 24

When recording a video zoomed in how do you get the camera to focus on the object ?


Focusing is one of the most difficult parts for every digital camera. Special on the end of the moon, and if the lights are low. Every camera needs sharp contrasting backgrounds and no distracting other high contrast objects in the foreground.
Be aware when you soon in to the end of the zoom range, you can't focus on close objects. Minimum focus distance can be a few meters.
It could be you switched to silence the focus noise, what can be bad for focusing.
See what the manual is telling you about zoom and focus:

Read the manual again, and check what settings would be the best for you while shooting video with a long zoom setting.
Here is the manual:

Close-ups of jewellery


Are you handholding the camera? For macro photography you almost have to have the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

Is everything blurry? That probably indicates camera motion since I assume the jewelry isn't moving. If part of the picture is sharp, probably in the center, then it's a depth of field issue. The camera focuses a certain distance away, and anything not at that distance (closer or farther away) tends to blur. Unfortunately there's not much you can do to control depth of field with a point&shoot camera. See http://www.fixya.com/support/r9564373-controlling_depth_field.

Picture comes out blurry


There are three main reasons for blurry pictures.
Pictures may come out blurry if they're not focused properly. If some objects are sharp and others are not, this may indicate focusing on the wrong subject. This is usually not a major problem with compact point&shoot cameras since they have such a wide field of focus that almost everything will be in focus anyway.
Subject motion. If moving objects blur while stationary objects remain sharp then the shutter speed is too slow to freeze the motion. Try switching to the sports mode, and/or add more light.
Camera motion. This is the most common cause. Set your camera on a table or other stable surface and use the self-timer to take a picture. Take another one while holding the camera. Compare the two on your computer.

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.

Our Canon Power shot A95 is used to take close up photos of jewellery ,with a white background.We have been useing the TV mode with the MF to focus.Howerev the pictures are over enposed, what can we do to...


Instead of shutter priority "Tv" mode, try setting to program "P" mode instead. Also, turn off the flash, and set to macro if shooting close-in (press downward on the little flower icon on the back disk). If pictures come out blurry, try using a tripod to hold the camera steady, or set the camera down on an object so it doesn't move while taking the shot. Try using the timer to activate the shutter to allow the camera to remain even steadier for the shot.

Lack of definition, blurriness.


Experiment with lowering the "exposure compensation" setting until you get the desired results. Also, don't forget to use a tripod.

Canon sd 550 (and sd 200) shutter speed


If you check out a review site such as www.steves digi cams. com or even the Canon site to check out the spec of the camera to discover what shutter speeds are available. When shooting fast moving subjects try panning the camera on the object as you press the release this will[to a degree] keep the primary image sharp[ish] whilst blurring the background

Picture blurry or out of focus.


Make sure your subject is within the camera's range. You should be at least 31 inches away to take a picture without the flash, and 31 inches to 8 feet away to take a picture with the flash. You can take a picture as close as 8 inches in macro mode. When you take macro close- ups, make sure you have adequate lighting (with the flash disabled). Using a tripod will help you capture sharp pictures. Make sure you hold the camera steady after you press the shutter button (until the red light starts to flash), and your subject isn't moving. If you are shaking the camera when you lock the focus, a warning icon appears in the right corner of the LCD. If you want to photograph a moving subject, you can change the shutter speed while the camera is connected to your computer. Try increasing the shutter speed. For more information, see Chapter 6. Make sure your flash is not set to flash off. When you focus on a nearby object, your picture's background may appear blurry. Try changing your focus.
