Perhaps you have had the camera in a very humid environment and now there is condensation inside? Perhaps try putting it somewhere warm and dry (not hot) for several days. Switch it on and off (and zoom in and out a bit) a few times during this period to change the air inside the lens. This will help expel the moisture.

I assume that it isn't just finger marks on the front of the lense? If it is, you can use a cleaning cloth (for eye glasses or from a camera shop) to clean it.

Images are blurry, fuzzy

Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.


The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Pictures fuzzy when you look through the viewer.

The viewfinder and the picture lens are totally separate. If it looks fuzzy, and then comes out fuzzy, the capture screen inside needs cleaned. The main lens and viewfinder lenses should be cleaned too.
Get estimates before you say yes to the work. It might be cheaper to buy another camera, unless you can do the work yourself.

It could be the focusing, did you check the focus every time? A slow shutter speed also causes blurry pictures. I know you do use your tripod, but if you don't use the self-timer function or a shutter cable then you are not using the tripod properly. Also, check the front piece of glass in the lens, clean it if it has stains or whatever on it.

Blurry picture

If you know where the fly back is, ok open the casing and see at the back of the fly back, there are two knobs, one for the focus and the other is for the brightness. Try twist both and see which one is for the focus. Ok, from the focus knob try adjusting until the fuzzy sight disappears. Try this, I usually do it to screens with blurry appearances.

Its hard to say without seeing the camera myself, but it's either dust inside the lens or it could be a small amount of condensation that has dried up and left a small amount of dirt behind.

What you will need to do (or have somebody do) is open up the camera, tear apart the lens and see if there is any dirt on the CCD. You can also look inside the lens from the front and see if you see any dirt trapped inside.

If you see dirt trapped inside the lens.... The only solution I know of is to replace the lens. If it's on the CCD (behind the lens) it's easy to clean off. Just make sure you don't leave fingerprints on the CCD when you're cleaning it.

If you need somebody to do it for you, we are a digital camera repair business (Google Darntoothysam) and would be happy to help. I think we have a CCD cleaning listed for about $35 including return shipping of the camera, but please note as I said above if its inside the lens elements and not on the CCD we can't clean it off.

Hopefully this advice helps, and if you need to ask further questions please feel free to contact me.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Fuzzy images

Hey jjbeanwink,
This is a very nice lens, and is unlikely that your blurry images are caused by the lens. The most common cause of blurry pictures is that the shutter speed is set to low. A general rule would be your shutter speed should be at least 1/60th of a second while handholding the camera. The bigger the lens, and the higher the magnification of the subject you are using the faster the shutter speed you should use. If camera shake is the cause of your blurry pictures you could also try using a tripod. Another common cause of blurry images is subject movement, and one solution would also be setting a faster shutter speed. Another solution is using the flash to stop the action instead of the shutter speed. Of course manufacturers do occasionally make a bad product and that is why there are manufacturers’ warranties. If you just purchased this lens you could have an authorized service technician look at the lens and see if there is anything wrong with it. I these suggestions help!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
