I would suggest using the Kids & Pets option, but you have to use a flash for that to work. I have been trying to figure out a way to take clear action photos without a flash, but I think it's impossible.

I have a vivitar vivicam f314 camera and 90% of the photos i take are blurry.there was no manual with the camera so i was wondering if you could help me with the settings so that my photos are good?thank...


ok try changing the pic size your saving your photos as. 4 x 6 is standard. also the more you use the digital zoom the more blurry its going to get. also the subject matter your trying to take pics of may be the problem. try changing your menu functions to sports or action. i am not sure if this helps any but this seems to be the main faults to blurry images other than dirty lenses or film over the lens.

Tracking a subject is one thing but, taking an action picture is something else altogether. You will need to set the ISO to a higher number to force the shutter to set a faster speed stop the action.

Camera takes pictures very slowly thus they always come out blurry. I have the megapixel settings on their lowest and even with action settings on they are still blurry is there anything I can do?


You're supposed to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to focus (it will beep) then press the rest of the way. Do you do that? Do you unconsciously move when snapping the picture? You should not set your camera to the lowest megapixel rating...the picture quality will suffer. Try setting your ISO to a faster speed.

Blurry action pictures


The sport setting uses a faster shutter speed to stop motion. However, if you have the ISO set to a low number and try to take action shots in dim light, they will be blurry. Either use auto ISO or use a higher number such as 400 or 800.

Canon rebel xsi, using 75-300 lens, taking photos of basketball game, pictures are blurry, especially the ones in "action" using the sports mode. also tried my 18-55 IS lens, same thing happening, using...


That's a big lens and for sports photography you are going to need a lot of light to ensure you can use a fast shutter speed to capture the action. Sports mode may do too much for you and you might want to try switching to a more manual mode. Try switching to Tv mode which gives shutter speed priority. Set the shutter speed to something around 1/150 or higher (1/200) which should be fast enough to freeze the action. Make sure the ISO is set to 200 or 400 for best results and see how you get on. This should stop any action based blur which would leave you with focus problems if the pictures are still blurry.

The right setting should be one that says for moving objects or some definitions like that in your camara.

Take care

Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this.
