Remove moisture inside Olympus digital camera


Place it in a sealed container covered in rice for a few days. The rice will absorb the moisture. Works on cell phone dropped on water too.

I set my camera to Manual setting but it takes blur photos. I am beginner and I don't know how to properly set the camera good for Manual setting. Any good setting for Manual? I will set that on m


The first number is the shutter speed and the second is the aperture. The two factors control the exposure.

The shutter speed (in this case 1.3 seconds) is how long the shutter is open to allow light to pass through the lens and strike the image sensor. The longer it's open the more light passes through. If there's not much light, like indoors or at night, the shutter needs to be open longer. A fast shutter speed can "freeze" motion, useful for things like sports. A slow shutter speed allows the subject to blur, useful for things like running water.

The aperture (in this case f/4.5) is a measure of how wide the lens opening is. The wider the opening the more light comes through. A smaller opening produces more depth of field.

The two work in tandem to achieve proper exposure. An oft-seen analogy is filling a bucket with water. You can turn the tap on all the way and fill it quickly, or just crack it open and let it take a long time filling drop by drop. Either way the bucket eventually fills up, but the two pictures may look very different.

I suggest you visit your local library and take a look at some introductory photography books. They will discuss the impact of shutter speed and aperture in much more detail than I can give here.

My camera doesnt allow me to take photos, the lens doesnt work.


Most of the lens issues due to mechanical problem. some of the causes are dropping the camera.
Hard shake like keeping the Camera in the hand and jump through steps, Moisture condensation, Insufficient battery.. etc If If you feel that the issue is not with the above reason, try initializing the Camera. To initialize the Camera, please use the Initialize option under the setup 1 Menu.
If the issue persists, perform a power reset of the Camera.
Performing a manual power reset Turn off the camera. Remove the battery pack. Remove the button-sized lithium battery. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery. Reinsert the battery pack. Turn on the camera. If the issue persist, service is required.

Hi, my camera got splashed with muddy water and now have mud on the inside of the lens. How do I fix the problem. Thanks Dave


The only way is to have the camera serviced. They may have to replace the lens. This could be very expensive.

Blur viewfinder


hi,

are the photos also blurred when they come out? if adjusting the diopter doesnt fix the issue, you might need to have your camera and lens calibrated. why the lens? its because the issue may be isolated to the lens calibration otherwise the technician will only calibrate the body.

Casio Exilim ex-z700 - lens wont open


Chances are you are not going to succeed. Water dissolves Coke but Kills cameras. Dropping them does the lens drive mechanism no good at all. Well now you are in a rock and a hard place. 1st thing to do is to go and buy the next camera. Then remove batteries and memory card from the existing camera and wet a tissue and wrap it around the lens barrel and let it stand face down for a couple of hours. Then find a poly bog. and in it put some salt or uncooked rice wrapped in a cloth[hanky?] Put hanky and camera in the bag close tight shut for a day. The idea is to draw out the moisture But I reckon you will need that new camera. As for a repair -forget it - these things don't get repaired
