Blurred picturew when using the flash

Hi, it used to be OK, but I've obviuosly changed some setting (bit of a novice here!) and now all photos which need a flash (automatically selected) are blurry - especially people's faces regardless if they are close or some metres away. Phots wehere there is enough natural light to not set off the flash are jsut fine.

Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem and tried moving the setting controls, it is blurred on every setting. I've had my camera for a while, could it just be old age?

Blurred edges


blurring occurs not depending on ISO, i think the lens is the problem. try to clean the lens glass carefully, is there some grease stick on the lens? if not it might be dislocated one of the lens structure.
have you try another lens?

Hi, the photos i take are getting blurred and the image is not at all clear no matter how shot the distance may be i click the image.the only new icon i see on the screen is vibration warning symbol along...


If you are shooting in Auto mode with flash, this should solve your problem. Make sure you are not dictating any of the settings, i.e. choosing a longer shutter speed, a very small aperture setting, or a very low ISO (sensitivity) setting.

Typically the vibration warning icon will appear when the camera is trying to use a long shutter speed without flash in order to get the right exposure for a darker scene. Your outdoor (bright light) photos are probably OK.

In dim light with a point and shoot camera, you can have your choice between 1. blurry (using a relatively slow shutter speed), 2. dark (using a shorter shutter speed but no flash), or 3. a good photo with flash (which uses a medium shutter speed and added light from the flash)

Blurred images


Any number of things. 
Low ISO. No Flash. No tripod. Too little light. No "shake" correction on the camera. 
Depending on the goal of the photo, you may wish to use a tripod. Or use the flash. Or use a higher ISO (400+). Or any combination of these. 
The easiest thing to do would be to make sure you use a flash. If you're trying to take a photo of something without the flash, you'll have to use a tripod. And even then, if something is moving fast through the frame, it'll likely be blurry. You simply need more light.
If you're new to digital cameras, I recommend the automatic settings. There's an "action" mode which usually has a man running as an icon. Or someone in motion. Some cameras even have settings for use at night or in darker rooms. Try those. 
If you feel comfortable, you could manually bump the ISO up to 400 and try again. Your photo may be a little "grainer" and will probably look a bit ugly blown up much over a 5x7, but for 4x6 or anything online, it should be fine.

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.

Try playing with the background or lighting - ex: take pics during the day versus nite... use a white/light colored background versus something dark.

Make sure you have the flash set to "auto" or try the "red eye" setting.. I've had good luck with both of those.

Also make use of the zoom. Stand farther back and zoom in - versus being close up and NOT using the zoom.

Hope this helps :)

Blurry pictures


There is a well documented problem with the W1 (and its brother, the P100). If you are shooting in good light, you will have no problem. If you are shooting in low light or flash, you will encounter various degrees of blurred photos. Unlike most cameras, the W1 has only two f-stops (f2.8 and f5.2). So the camera must select one or the other (nothing in between). The firmware in the camera will try to select f5.2 as long as it can in low light. This results in a slow shutter speed. And with flash you usually end up with a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second. A slow shutter speed is the cause of the blurred photos. If you can hold the camera perfectly still under low light conditins (and flash) you will get good photos. If you use the cameras manual mode and manually select a faster shutter speed you will get good photos. It appears that Sony could fix the problem with a firmware change so that the camera made better use of the ISO settings along with the f-stop selections. However, they have not done so.
