Check that the auto focus and auto exposure is turned on. Check that the camera is not in the macro mode for normal picture taking.

It is possible that there is a defect that is not allowing proper focus. In this case your camera will require service.

How can i adjust settings for blurred pictures on Samsung ES15


That would depend on why the pictures are blurry.

If the pictures are blurred because of camera motion, you need to either use a faster shutter speed or place the camera on a tripod or other stable support.

If the pictures are blurred because the subject is moving, you need to use a faster shutter speed.

If the pictures are blurred because it's out of focus, you need to ensure that the camera is focusing on what you consider to be the subject, not what the camera chooses.

Pictures come out blurry if any movement


The most likely culprit is a slow shutter speed. If the subject moves while the picture is being taken, you'll see it blur. If non-moving objects show up sharp while the moving objects are blurred, then this is definitely it.

Another possibility is camera movement. Try putting the camera on a tripod or a table or other steady support, then use the self-timer to take a picture. If everything in the picture is blurry, then this is probably the reason.

The third possibility is that the camera isn't focused on the subject. Try taking a picture of the subject when it isn't moving and see what happens.

I have a ViviCam X014N. Everytime I take a close up pictures, the images comes up fuzzy. What am I doing wrong? I follow Macro setting recommending 30-45 cm away, but still no luch.


Sounds like you're not using a tripod. Macro pictures have a very small area that can be in focus....the slightest movement can cause the blurry pics.

Picture comes out blurry and there appears a hand that appears to be shaking in the top left hand corner of the picture screen


Hand shake means shutter speed is too low to avoid blurred picture(due to low light)
Either increase lighting or
Use flash and turn it on or use higher ISO setting or
Use lowest aperture number.
Last when there is nothing moving in the frame you can use tripod at any P.A.S settings in any lighting

LCD screen is extremely blurred


It is probably not the LCD itself, but an element that is protecting the LCD is bent out of shape.

DSC-T7 Blurriness


Try this test: Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness. If the picture is still blurred then there might be a problem with the AF but if it isn't blurred then the problem is either camera shake OR subject movement (or both).
