Many laptop computers come equipped with a small web camera assembly mounted above the LCD screen. Like any other camera, these webcams use a lens to take pictures. Over time, it is possible for this lens to become dirty, especially if you have touched it a few times. You can quickly clean the lens and get the unit back to taking crisp pictures.
1.Take a microfiber cloth and gently press it to the lens of your laptop's web camera.
2.Gently rub the lens of the web camera with the microfiber cloth. Be sure that you cover the entire surface of the web camera's lens.
3.Open your web camera program when you are finished and take a picture to test the quality of the webcam. If it is still blurry, close the program and repeat steps 1 and 2 until the web camera is no longer blurry.
This issue can occur in the following circumstances:
The subject is too close to the camera lens
Incorrect camera settings
Incorrect camera operation
Follow the steps below to help prevent taking pictures that appear blurry, out-of-focus or distorted.
If the camera has both an auto focus and manual focus mode, make sure it is set to auto focus.
Make sure there is enough lighting to allow the camera to focus on the subject.
Make sure the camera settings are set appropriately.
When taking close-up or macro-type shots, ensure the subject is not closer than the minimum focus distance of the lens. Also, if the camera has a zoom option, set it to the W (wide-angle) position.
If you have a fast-moving subject and the camera has a Program AE mode with a higher shutter speed (such as Sports action), make sure it is enabled. Also, if the camera has an ISO control, set it to a higher setting.
If your camera has a SteadyShot/anti-blur function, ensure it is enabled.
Aim the camera at the subject.
Press the shutter button halfway down.
Pressing the shutter button halfway down allows the camera to focus automatically. A flashing green indicator will be visible in the LCD or viewfinder. When the indicator stops flashing, focusing is finished and the camera is ready to take the picture.
Some camera models have a Monitoring AF setting that can be selected which allows the camera to focus without the need to hold the button halfway down. Consult the instruction manual of the camera for information whether or not this is applicable for your model.
Why are my pictures out of focus (blurry)?
This problem can occur for one or more reasons. Here are some common causes and suggested solutions.
The lens is dirty. Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt. Wipe the lens gently with a soft, lint-free cloth or an untreated lens-cleaning tissue. Do not use cleaning solution unless it is designed specifically for camera lenses.
The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera has a recommended distance for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures.
The subject was not within the effective range of the flash. Each camera has an effective flash range.
The camera did not focus or expose the picture correctly. For the best possible pictures, press the shutter button halfway and hold. When the Ready light or framing marks turn green, press the shutter button completely down to take the picture.
The LCD screen Preview feature was not used to take a picture in Close-Up mode. Always use the Preview feature in Close-Up mode to confirm focus and to frame the subject properly. If the Preview feature is not used, the LCD will not display an accurate view of the subject.
The subject or camera moved. Hold the camera very steady when taking a picture, or place the camera on a flat, stable surface. You may want to consider using a tripod or monopod.
It's lens problem. If you can, disassemble your camera and fix your lens. If you finish and the camera saw the same error..change your lens. It same with sony camera that message "Turn The Power Off and On again"
the lens open halfway, the picture on the LCD is blurry and one second
after the lens close and an error appears of the screen saying "D: 5f08
5e02". what does this mean??? can you help me fixed this one??
One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below.
The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model.
The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures.
The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range.
The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.)
You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error.
The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
