Hi
Change the mode to 'One Shot'. Press the AF-WB and turn the top dial to 'One Shot'.

2. Increase your depth of field. When shooting in Av try using f11. This should help with te out of focus people on the ends. Check your shutter speed as well. Good rule of thumb is to keep the shutter speed higher than the focal length of the lens. i.e. 100mm lens should have a shuter speed of 100+ for hand held shots. You may need to change the ISO speed to get the shutter speed in low light. Lternative is to use a tripod.

Hope this helps.

Bad indoor pictures. When I take indoor pictures and it says to use the flash I do but then my pictures turn out dark/grey. Then I try it without the flash and they are brighter but then blury. I even...


The flash has a range of up to around 10 feet at the wide end of the zoom, down to 6.5 feet at the tele end. Maybe you are using it on to big a distance or at to low ISO? Try setting the ISO to 800 and see if it helps. images get a bit more grainy at 800 ISO but are also less prone to camera shake, if you use it without the flash. The camera goes as high as 1600 ISO, but images get very grainy at that setting.

Blury pictures


When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Group Picture out of focus


For group photo happiness:

* Use the widest angle available on your zoom lens for group shots. Longer focal lengths make the depth-of-field problem worse. Step closer to the group to fill the frame.

* Use a moderate aperture, somewhere between f/5.6 and f/11. f-stops beyond f/11 can make more things appear to have the same amount of focus, but actual resolution drops due to diffraction.

* Arrange the group so that all the faces are at or near the same plane, and your camera is perpendicular to that plane. So, if P is a person, C is your camera, and - is just space,

* Using fill-in flash can improve the look of outdoor portraits.

Blury and flash problems


Hello Chad,
As you told the condition of the are blurry,This problem is not related to the setting or master reset.This cause is due to malfunctioning of zoom optical motor and sensor who focus the object.Therefore, the solution of it is, You have to change its optical lens assembly.
I often deal these sort of cases in routine in said Model Although it's a very fine camera but dusty and moisturized conditions cause this problem.

Thanks & don't forget to rate.

Blury Display on FE140


It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.

The subject is very blury or out of the picture


You are expecting too much for any auto mode. When shooting under low light conditions, the camera may take longer to achieve focus lock. If the subject is moving too, it will take even longer to lock focus. Try using manual focus for the conditions you described.
