The simplest thing which might have gone wrong is that you mistakenly activated the macro function. Try taking a picture of, say, a flower from a few inches: if it's sharp, you're employing the camera's macro function and need to deactivate it.

I don't recall the DSC having a manual focus setting, but check it out. If you turned it on, you need to manually adjust the focus through the zoom control in order to get sharp pictures (or turn on autofocus, of course).

Otherwise, the auto-focusing software might be at fault. There are several autofocus settings available; try cycling them all and see if the problem is reversible.

If not, either the autofocus parameters are gone awry - I'm afraid the camera'll need servicing - or maybe a dirty lens is causing the autofocus to malfunction, in which case cleaning it would solve the problem. Frankly, it's unlikely - it would take a really cleverly positioned and greasy fingerprint to fool a modern focusing engine. But you might be lucky, and it's worth a check.

When I look through the viewfinder on my Nikon D40x it is blurry and looks out of focus, but when but after I take the picture it is clear on the lcd screen. Is there a setting I can change or is something...


Adjust view finder focus as you will see setting there, to view correct focus in view finder itself.
Camera is just fine because it is taking good focus pictures.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

All of a sudden everything is out of focus and very blurry, pictures and even through the view finder. we took a few pics tht turned out normal, set the camera down picked it up about 5-10 minutes later...


If the viewfinder is also blurry, it might be as simple as a smudge on the lens. Is the blur uniform and consistent on the pictures and in the viewfinder? Was there a curious dog nearby when you set the camera down?:)

View finder


Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.

Blurry pictures


First try to put the camera dial on the P mode setting and then press ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to setup tab - then right arrow to All Reset and then right arrow to make sure it is set to On. Then power the camera off and then back on. The camera should then be in factory defaulted settings. Try taking an image in P mode and seeing how it turns out. If it is still blurry you may want to call Olympus technical support to further troubleshoot your issue. Their telephone number is 888-553-4448 option 5 and then option 1.

My camera is blurry..and it takes blurry pictures..How can i fix this?


Gently clean the lens or get it cleaned at a camera store. I suspect fingerprints on the glass. If this isn't it, the camera's infrared sensor may be malfuntioning or dirty, or the lens assembly is not functioning properly (warranty).
