Fuzzy/ not very sharp pictures

Pictures are not as clear as they used to be. I've played around with the settings and not sure if I've got them off of the original ones that were on there when I bought it

    blurry pics

  • aliciarivera Dec 15, 2008

    My camera started to display pics fuzzy and then sharpen up in a second (this is on screen). When I download to my pc or to print the image downloads only the initial fuzzy pic. I checked every setting I could and can't find anything wrong. I hate to buy a new camera over something that could be easily fixed... does anyone have any ideas?



    Thanks!

If the photos look pixellated, perhaps you've turned down the resolution/quality setting? Check the manual for how to correct this.

If your photos seem generally hazy, your lens could need cleaning. Use a lint free cloth such as one for cleaning spectacles.

If all your photos have a smooth, out of focus appearance, it could be a camera fault. However, if you've recently been taking photos in poor light without flash, it could also be "camera shake". You can distinguish this from out of focus because the blur is slightly directional rather than being smooth in all directions. Points of light become lines not blurry discs.

How do I set the resolution on my Canon SD850?


The instructions for changing the resolution are on page 30 of the manual.
If the pictures are fuzzy, increasing the resolution won't help. The most likely causes of fuzzy pictures are as follows
1) Focus. Check to make sure the focus is on the subject. If something else in the picture is sharp while others are not, then the camera may have focused on the wrong subject.
2) Subject motion. If moving objects are fuzzier than stationary objects then you need to use a faster shutter speed (or flash).
3) Camera motion. Just because the camera is on a tripod doesn't mean it doesn't move. One philosophy says that if a tripod is light enough to be carried then it's not sturdy enough. For a compact camera like the SD850 that likely isn't the problem. However, you can still shake the camera when you press the shutter release button. Try setting the self-timer. This allows time for the vibrations to die down before snapping the picture.
In your particular case, I think we can assume that the subject isn't moving, so #2 doesn't apply. To assure proper focus, make sure the painting is flat and perpendicular to the lens axis. If the painting is tilted relative to the camera, then different parts of it will be at different distances and the camera won't be able to keep all of it in focus.
Also, make sure the front of the lens is clean.

Lack of definition, blurriness.


Experiment with lowering the "exposure compensation" setting until you get the desired results. Also, don't forget to use a tripod.

Canon Powershot SLR takes fuzzy photos


Guys,
you need additional flash or brighter light to click in low lighting condition. In order to compensate for low light conditions, the shutter goes slow and therefore you get fuzzy pictures.

Another way is to click on movie(video) mode and then atleast you can see them moving around as well as while editing, you could take out some pictures from the video( though on lmuch ower resolution).

My pictures turn out fuzzy all the time and i can't figure out how to turn on my flash. Please Help! Casio Exilim EX-Z70


Flash should turn on by pressing the "Set" button and then the down arrow until you get to the flash menu. Choose the setting that looks like a lightning bolt.

If that doesn't work press the "Menu" button and then press the "right arrow" until you are on the far right tab. Press the "up arrow" until you come to "Reset." Press the "Right arrow." The camera will ask you if you want to reset it. Tell it "Yes." This will take it back to factory settings and clear any mode that turns the flash off.

Are the pictures fuzzy because the flash isn't working? Are outdoor pictures in daylight fuzzy or OK? If they are fuzzy all the time you may have a lens problem. If they are only fuzzy when the flash is needed, fixing your flash should cure the problem.

You will probably need to use a tripod in close up mode. Especially if the light levels are low. Flash may help but often gives pictures with overbright parts and reflections. Cheap table tripods are easy to get hold of and if used with the self timer can give very good results.

Fuzzy, cloudy pictures


As basic as it sounds, is the lens dirty? The tiny surfaces of digital cameras' lenses really affect image quality. Also check the image quality setting to ensure you're shooting at a high quality setting.

Fuzzy Pictures


When you resize an image (especially if the original image is quite large), you need to sharpen it before uploading.

Besides that, there's many other parameters that affect the image quality. The picture you uploaded here is too small to be properly examined. Make sure, in any case, that:

1) The camera has focused properly. Especially in items like the one shown (with multiple reflective surfaces), a camera can be easily fooled and focus on something other than what you intended
2) Make sure the camera settings are appropriate (ISO should not be too high, shutter speed should not be too slow)
3) Use a tripod for maximum stability
