Black Smudges on Photos

What could be causing these? I've examined and cleaned the lens and don't see anything externally that would be causing this. It's more exaggerated when zoomed (airplane) but is now showing up in wide-angle as well.

Nice examples of foreign material (dust/hair/etc) on ccd sensor. Camera needs professional cleaning to properly remove this. Shop here charges $45 for digital slr, but point-n-shoot might cost a little more because camera has to be disassembled to get to ccd.

Blurry Photos


Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Regards

My webcam is blury, and I dont know why. It hasnt got the protective thing on it anymore as i took it off. Ive had a look through the settings and i cant find anything to fix it. I dont know whether its my...


Try taking a cotton swab and gently wiping the lens, using a small amount of rubbing alcohol. The alcohol will clean any dirt or smudges off of the webcam and will not damage the lens. Make sure the swab you use won't leave any fuzz behind.

I don't know what else would work at this point, seeing as I've never heard of a setting/program that blurred the webcam (not saying it doesn't exist), but I wish you luck!

What causes my copier pages to have black smudges on them.


Black smudges are usually caused by a defective or worn out drum. When the drum gets a fingerpirnt, any kind of oil, or anything else that causes the static charge to not hold the toner to the paper, the toner will not go where it is supposed to in order to create the image on the paper and it will cause smudges, streaks or lines.

My camera has recently not been focusing, so all the photos are blurred even on Auto, i don't think it has been dropped.


Hi,

I have come across this problem personally.
All I had to do is clean the lens with a microfibre cloth to remove all dust and smudges from the lens.
The smudges caused the lens to be unable to focus on the right object.

Hope this easy fix will work for you as well.

Dirt on the inside of the front lense


Hello, I very much doubt that a small piece of dirt on the lens is a problem. It is more likely that your sensor needs to be cleaned. Sensor dirt is more visible at small (f11 to f32) apertures. I expect that you are shooting bright snow with a small aperture & this is why you are seeing the problem. To check, try the following.
Set camera to Av, ISO 100.
take some photos of the sky, a blank wall, or some other featureless surface, as follows:
1 - Set aperture to highest possible f - number.
2 - set aperture to lowest f-number.
3 - repeat 1 with a different lens
4 - repeat 2 with a different lens.

I expect that you will see photo 1 and photo 3 will have identical smudges of dirt on them. Photos 2 and 4 should have no smudges. If this is the case, your problem is dirt on the camera sensor. The only way to fix it is to clean your sensor.

In my Photoshop photos of people, even proofs of a wedding, some people have dark blue blotches on their eyes or mouth, please help.


Have you cleaned your camera lens lately? I would suggest taking a photo of a clear blue sky, to see if anything shows up in the photo from dirt or smudges on the lens(es). If it is an SLR, you may need to take it to a professional to have it cleaned if anything does show up.
