If it is clear in your camera LCD but looks out of focus once you download it to a computer, check if you have enabled close up shots, the one which looks like a flower near the menu button, you have to disable it. Pleare refer to the manual or closely watch the panel buttons. Once you disable close up shots then the pictures you take after that will be good.

If this is not the case we have to check on the autofocus options.

Blurry pictures


I don't know how much experienced you are with a digital camera. Don't even know you have any experience with any camera. But the modern camera's are capable of taking sharp pictures, is used right.
But to let the camera do its work correct it should be setup correct and used correct.
Let me explain.
Most camera's have a possibility to make pictures in automatic. (dail on the green camera symbol) But still there is more to do.
Every camera has a point (or more points, that are used to focus the picture. You can use to put that point where you want the picture be in focus. Most of the time that would be the centre of the frame. But the camera can't focus in theoretical a blink of an eye. It needs some time, to find the focus by differences in contrast, or patterns. A DSLR sometimes can focus in less then a tenth of a second. Compact camera's could need up to one second, before they are in focus.

So try to setup the camera to automatic. Place the focus marks (as described on page 6 of the manual. Then press the shutter realise button half and look if the camera can focus. If it can't, release the button and try again. When the pictures is in focus, then you can press the button fully.
On page 33 of the manual, there are different modes of focus. be sure you use the mode you chose in the correct way.

link to the manual I refer to.

My pics on my Canon rebel eos looked clear on my camera but when downloaded to the computer they are bluury. Lanscape photos are fine but wildlife is blurred.


First of all this is a digital camera, not a 35mm film camera, but it is the same fix... You need to use a faster shutter speed for your wildlife pictures. Or use a tripod, or both. The small screen on the camera is not big enough to tell if a photo is really sharp. Also check the way you have your autofocus set up, or focus manually to test a few closer shots. It may be that the auto focus is set to focus on a part of the picture which is not the bit you are interested in. There should be some indicators in the viewfinder to tell you where in the frame the camera is picking out to auto focus onto. Blurry can only be either out of focus or shake. (It could be both of course!)

My Nikon D200 digital camera will not focus when I depress the shutter butteon half way and will not take picture when shutter is completely depressed. this all started after I downloaded my pictures to my...


Hard to pinpoint the exact problem...
What lens do you have attached? Does it have a switch for M/A and M (auto focus/manual focus)? If it does ensure the switch is in the M/A or Auto Focus position.

On the left side of the camera on the face there are 3 positions, C, S, and M. Ensure it is not on "M" for manual.

Do you have your camera setup to only allow the shutter to operate when it is in focus?

I put in my pictures into my laptop when my pictures no focus in my laptop screen? how to adjust?


If your picures are not in focus on your laptop, it can only be because they were not in focus when you shot them.You may be able to make some correction if you have a photo editing programme that came with your camera software, but basically, it is a camera problem. Not your laptop.If you want to prove it, you can download to a friends computer and make a comparison.

The camera's firmware will need to be updated. You can sometimes get lucky enough to find a free download on the web. Others have to send in their camera's to the manufacture and they will repair it for $50

Digitil camera out of focus


The motor that controls the focus of the lense may be bad. Here is a link to the manual, and you many need to have the camera serviced at a local shop or by Vivatar.
Go here to download the manual for future reference:

Taking pictures


This could be due to a jammed lens element preventing the camera from focusing properly. When you push the button the camera attempts to focus the image before it takes the picture. If the focus component in the lens is not moving properly it cannot focus and thus will not take the picture. Do you see the camera attempt to focus the image when you press down the button? If it does not make any noises when you push the button, and the camera does not attempt to focus the image then it is most likely a jammed or malfunctioning focus motor. This would require professional repair.

Can't take picture with monitor off?


When the LCD display is "off" the focus mode is automatically switched to "Single AF" mode (since there is no way for the user to confirm that the proper subject is focused) and unless focus is locked the camera cannot fire. When the camera is in "Continuous AF" Focus mode the camera will take a picture whenever the shutter release button is pressed, wether or not the subject is in focus. You can take a photo with the monitor off, but the camera will have to lock focus before it can fire and will not respond as quickly as with the monitor on.
