I have my Olympus FE-160,the problem is whan I take pics,it came out all blurry and the color changes...am not sure whats going on?is there any way that can be fix?


HERE'S THE ANSWER TO YOUR PROBLEM:

The three possible culprits of your camera are the following:

1. Long Focal Length

2. Slow Shutter Speed

3. Wide Apertures


Here's what you've got to do:

1. Increase your shutter speed so that it is greater or equal to 1 over the focal length.

2. Attach the camera to a tripod to avoid camera shakes.

3. Keep your shutter speed to 1 / 60 - 1 / 125 when holding the camera in your hands.

4. Keep your aperture around f8.0, especially with along focal length.

5. In case, you buy another camera model, see to it that the camera is featured with image stabilization (IS) technology.


Thank you. Your problem is solved...

Cannot find memory card fo Olympus didital camera D-460 ZOOM


You can purchase Smartmedia 3.3 memory cards at Nextag.com, Amazon.com and eBay.com amongst others. Make sure you buy Olympus or make sure you format any other purchased card in the camera. BTW, you can purchase 128MB cards as well, not only 16 and 32MB.

C-350 zoom keeps showing low battery and beeping when opened to take pic, but in menu mood shows full, 2 new batteries


I have the same problem but not as grave.
The set can click two to three pics before low batt.

Seems to be a problem with the flash capacitor.
Try with flash turned off the thing should improve.

I cannot turn my olympus 770sw on. I've tried everything i can think of. what can i do? some background, i left the camera connected to the computer and the battery died while it was connected, since then...


this is probably due to the fact that your battery died while it was connected because normally i think it is supposed to charge while it is connected but maybe the battery's life span is dead

My olympus sp-550uz will not take a picture on Auto, but does take video and will take pics on the "My" setting. Also some pics have green tint to them now. This happened after changing batteries


I don't think the battery caused this problem.
Try a known fresh set of batteries, then go into the camera settings and do a "restore to factory default"
option. And, re-format the memory. If you are using a memory card take it out. Take out or put in AFTER camera has been turned off by the way. Hope that helps.

Recharchable battery will not charge olympus 850sw


You can download a manual at this site.

It sounds like your battery is dead. How long have you had this camera? If the battery is not charged properly it will cause the life time to be cut in half or more. When charging these batteries you have to let them die completely before charging. This could be a major problem if your in the middle of taking pictures. I have two batteries for all my cameras that way I always have one on stand by. Hope this works. Let me know if I can help you with anything else.

Camera does not take pics


I have had trouble with this and what I found is I was pushing on the white balance button at the time I was taking the photo. Try making sure your finger is not touching anything else.

Battery life expectancy


The D-535Z uses two AA batteries, and Olympus includes alkalines in the box. Unfortunately those won't last long and will end up in the trash. So I recommend buying a four pack of NiMH rechargeables (plus a charger), which gives you a set for the camera plus a spare. Unfortunately Olympus doesn't publish any battery life statistics for the D-535, so I can't give you any exact numbers. It depends a lot on how much you use the flash and LCD screen. Don't leave the screen on all the time, use it sparingly and you should find an increase in shot numbers. BMW

Battery life expectancy


The battery life on alkaline batteries vary according to manufacturer and power rating. Alkaline Batteries can provide up to 100 shots with typical usage. The Olympus CR-V3 long-life lithium batteries (LB-01) will provide approximately 500 shots. The Olympus Ni-MH batteries (B-01 4PE) would provide approximately 250 shots per charge and they can be recharged 300 to 500 times.
