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.

My color focus is all outta wack. maybe its the a convergence problem?


depends on exact model number but a kit (someone like TV parts .com) sell a kit for this---individual parts are usually cheaper but some real soldering etc is involved as set uses two chips if it is a older rear projection set and does NOT use a lamp but has 3 picture tubes.

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.

Wheel bearing


the rear bearing is pressed into the hub so take the hubs off and take to a engineering shop to have the new one pressed in ,now the front ones are similar in as much as they need pressing in and out ,DO NOT TRY TO DO IT WITH A BIG HAMMER ,its dangerous ,remove the wheel trim and slacken the big nut in the middle ,think its a 32mm then jack vehicle up remove the wheel ,undo the brake caliper by the 2 bolts that hold it to the stub axle ,slacken bolt on track rod end but do not remove fully and then wack the end of the stub axle where the track rod end goes through .One good wack with a 1kg hammer will do it on the end of the steering /stub axle shaft without damaging anything because you have left the nut on loose.then remove the bottom track control arm pinch bolt it has a star head and a 17 mm nut on the other end ,use a lengh of scaffold pole or a big crow bar to pull the track control arm down so the ball joint come apart ,take the stub axle off and in the back is a big circlip but leave it alone and just take it to the engineering shop ,its very dangerous to try to remove the bearing with a big hammer and drift because it can and will chip and hit you in the face trust me on this

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.

Mitsubishi big screen blury


In all probability the picture is fuzzy too, its just harder to notice. This can be as simple as an adjustment in the back of the set. Carefully remove the back and look for the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out of the top). The should be 1 or 2 controls on it. One should be marked focus. Adjust that to get sharper focus.

Let me kow if that fails to resolve the problem.

Thanks,
Dan

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,

----C----


and not

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

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.
