Lock in the focus first by pressing the shutter button half-way until you hear the "beep" and then press the rest of the way for an instantaneous shot.

THE LCD PICTURE IS CLEAR AND WHEN I PUSH THE BUTTON TO SHOT, IT STARTED TO BLURD THE PICTURE AT LCD AND PICTURE RESULT ALSO IS BLURD.


Hi chicbenzon_1 ,

The LCD picture is clear indicates that the lens is clear enough to capture the image, if there would be any disturbance on the lens you would come to know on the LCD itself.


When you push the button to shoot , it could be that you are pressing the button just half way which is a function used to focus on the object before full press of the button or actual shot of the image.

I would recommend you to half press the button till you focus on your image and then when your hands are steady and there is no shake on the camera , go ahead and press the button full which would result in the image being taken.

Hope this helps ...:)

Pictures are blurry unless I push the picture switch down very slow


Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Regards

When i push the button to take a picture, the camera delays for about 3 or 4 seconds before it actually take the pic. Why does it delay?


Hi,

There could be several problems like:

1)The focus.
2)Self timer set to 2sec or 10sec.
3)very slow shutter speed set.
Make it as a 10 or 20 second delay on the self timer .Your problem here could be that the settings are not right. Go to the menus and reset all to original or default. Then set menus the way you like. You may have a slow memory card, try changing to a faster card, and test it.


Thank you!

Time betwween taking picture and actual shutter actuation to slow


Push the button half-way and allow the camera to focus before pressing the rest of the way. By pre-focussing, you can wait for just the right moment before pressing the rest of the way.

Which buttons to push


1 You have to push the button to take the picture 2 Some of the cameras are auto loading. In that case once you take the picture it will move the film automatically. 3 If it is not auto loading then you have to move the lever to load film for the next shot

Nikon D80... push button down, it clicks but does not record photo.


Are you sure it did not take a picture? It is possible your picture review function is turned off so you do not see a preview of the picture immediately after clicking on the shutter. You also need to push the button down long and hard in order to ensure that a shot is taken

Sony DSC H-5 Camera slow response time


There is a diaphram between the shutter button and the shutter that does the focus. Pushing the button half way down pre-focuses and then the picture is instantanious. If the diaphram is broken it take a while before the shutter takes the picture. One of the AA batteries may be defective so try another set and see if that is better. There is also a slight possibility that the secondary battery (hidden within the camera) has gone bad.

Missing shots


your camera works fine, but they made it like this, so you should push the button all the way down, not half way, because when you push half way, the camera focus on the target, and the little lasers flash, but that is no shoot... on the other hand, if you push half way the button, the camera focus on the target, then you push it more, then you shoot the picture and it is saved. Try to be more careful about what means all way down and half way down.
Hope it was helpful

There is a long delay taking pictures


Check to see if the self-timer is on. You can set the timer to 0, 2, or 10 sec. A 2 sec. delay will help to prevent blurry pictures. But setting the self-timer to 0 will take the picture as soon as you push the button.

Take pic button sticking


If you have just taken one or more pictures it might be that you have a very slow memory card and the camera's memory has to digest those first before it can process more. It might be a weak or going bad battery. Can't help you on the pressing hard part...
