Seems as if the autofocus is not working properly. Best thing would be to take it back to the store and get it replaced.

My pictures are coming out blur


With digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower.

My cam Canon SD40 just get a little blurred, how can i fix the resolution of this cam? is it in settings only?


This is not a problem with the camera's resolution.

Blurring can be caused by moving the camera during a shot, by poor focus, or by muck on the lens surface. Moving the camera is the most common.

Poor focus shouldn't happen with an autofocus digital camera, unless you are trying to take distance shots with the camera in macro mode. The lens would have to have grease or goo on it to affect focus, not just dust. You can check these things easily.

Try putting the camera on a tripod and see if shots taken that way are still blurred. If that fixes the problem, then you are not holding the camera still enough when shooting. Remember that digital cameras often have a slight delay between pressing the button and the picture being snapped, so train yourself to hold the camera still even after you press the shutter.

My photos are blurred 60% of the time. I think it takes too long when I push the button to take the photo...


Make sure that you have short enough exposure. I have taken steady shots with 1/8s and with some support (wall, table or similar) even 1/2s. Normally slower than 1/30s makes pictures blurred.
When shooting, don't **** the camera, but squeeze the trigger - your shots will improve. Trust me.

Very blurry pictures on a Cannon Xti 400D


If u had took photo in very low light, pictures will appear blur. Or if you use tele zoom, u need to use tripod to stablize. In normal conditions, you can turn on image stablizer.

Blurry photos that are really frustrating!


Evening & Indoors? The kit lens is really going to struggle here. Your only immediate solution is to use ISO 1600 which makes the shutter faster but adds a little noise to the pictures.

You really want to get a better lens for indoor work. If you need cheap, try the 50mm f1.8, it's a prime not a zoom, so you will need to use your feet to "zoom" but it's incredibly good for indoor / low light work.

I upgraded to a 17-55mm f2.8 IS, it was rather expensive but I have never had a blurry indoor shot since - I do also use an external Speedlite flash with it though, which also helps tremendously.

It's an expensive hobby!!

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.
