With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower. Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.

Why are my photos blurry?


There are only three reasons photos look blurry: poor focus, shaking the cameral during the shot, or trying to take a photo of a fast-moving subject with a slow-speed camera.

You can usually see focus problems on the display before you take the picture, so that doesn't appear to be your issue. On the other hand, movement of camera or subject happens during the shot, so you'll only see that in the completed photo.

Camera movement first. Many cameras today have built-in "anti-shake" circuits that sense when you're the problem -- you're moving the camera during the shot. The best ones are very good at eliminating shakiness, but even they can't overcome large movement, as when you mash down the button to take the picture. If yours doesn't have anti-shake, or it isn't very well implemented, you'll just have to practice pushing gently on the button and holding the camera very still until it finishes the shot.

As for subject movement -- well, more sophisticated cameras offer ways to capture kids bouncing on a trampoline with a minimum of blurriness, but it's always going to be a problem.

If you don't want to switch to one of the more sophisticated cameras from a major brand, practice holding the camera steady during every shot and avoid shooting fast-moving subjects.

I dropped my konica minolta dimage a200 and now when i turn it on the screen shakes and anti-shake does not work


The tracking servo motors and associated gears are damaged or misaligned. The purpose of these servos are to automatically adjust the lens positioning so that it seems the camera is almost stationary. When the anti shake is enabled, the lens locks onto a target and if the target moves, the servos move the lens to compensate for the offset. If you are experiencing screen shaking it means that the lens is trying to adjust but cannot because the servo system is damaged. It's quite possible that only one servo motor is functioning and the other is loose. It will require in shop repair.

Photos have a black corner. Sometimes upper right, sometimes lower right. The black corner covers approximately 5% of the width and height of the image. Can I fix this myself?


This might also come from a problem with a dealignment of one of he servo-motors (horizontal or vertical) which center the lens during anti-shake adjustment.
If your camera vibraets at start or shows a vibrating image on display then this is the problem.
Then the lens is often out of axis and black corners appear on the display and of course on the picture...
I have not found the solution but have posted a request !
It may only be some disconnected part near the lens but unfortunately nobody shows pictures of HOW to dismantle the Z5 ! and WHERE are these 'bloddy' servo-motors or alignment devices ?...

Hi I am trying to find out how to stop my


First check your lens and make sure it is clean. Second, try taking a photo outside in daylight using your timer, with your camera sitting on a solid stable surface. If the photos are still blurry, try setting your camera options to factory default and redo the same test. If the photos are still blurry, I would suspect the camera is defective.

Shutter is delayed and pictures are blurry


Check the anti-shake setting and turn it off to see if that is a problem. Batteries can affect that mode as well.
