This is a great camera! Are you using the focus guide to focus on your main subject. Move the camera until your main subject is in the bos ten depress the shutter button 1/2 way down to focus the subject. Leave you finger there at the focus point-You can then move the camera to take in more objects or people and gently push the shutter all the way down. Generally, the causes of out of focus photos are:

the camera in the wrong mode-just start with the general mode-usually a little camera symbol

do not change any settings-if you have go to the menu button and settings and go back to default settings

the focus feature of the camera 9explained above is not being used

You are too close to the subject (use the zoom instead)

You are experiencing camera movement by pressing on the shutter too hard or moving your hands. A tripod always works best.


You can go to www.panasonic.com and obtain a manual for your camera if you do not have it.

If your camera still gives you blurry photos, please get back to me with any info that might help- have you dropped it or gotten it wet or anything like that?

Thank you for using Fix YA and please don't forget to rate me!

Clean the lens if it's dirty, try to turn on auto focus (or set up manually if you know the distance to an object you're shooting), get good light while taking pictures, stabilize the camera (try not to shake it), press the shooter button only half way down and wait a second until you see or hear the signal that the camera has focused the image, and then press the button all the way down to take the picture. Best pictures are usually taken during daylight, when the sun is behind the camera, and your camera is on a stand. Try not to take the pictures with camera pointed towards the sun.

Why are my photos blurry?


There are only three reasons photos look blurry: poor focus, shaking the cameral during the shot, or trying to take a photo of a fast-moving subject with a slow-speed camera.

You can usually see focus problems on the display before you take the picture, so that doesn't appear to be your issue. On the other hand, movement of camera or subject happens during the shot, so you'll only see that in the completed photo.

Camera movement first. Many cameras today have built-in "anti-shake" circuits that sense when you're the problem -- you're moving the camera during the shot. The best ones are very good at eliminating shakiness, but even they can't overcome large movement, as when you mash down the button to take the picture. If yours doesn't have anti-shake, or it isn't very well implemented, you'll just have to practice pushing gently on the button and holding the camera very still until it finishes the shot.

As for subject movement -- well, more sophisticated cameras offer ways to capture kids bouncing on a trampoline with a minimum of blurriness, but it's always going to be a problem.

If you don't want to switch to one of the more sophisticated cameras from a major brand, practice holding the camera steady during every shot and avoid shooting fast-moving subjects.

I have a Olympus C-750 UltraZoom. I was taking pictures and everything was normal, but then I noticed the viewfinder was blurry. I was walking through a tunnel under a river and I thought the temperature...


Hi Steve, I inform you that the problem only is moisture. Please follow this.
1. Put the camera in sunlight for few hours. After that use it & if you face same problem then
2. You need to visit camera repair shop and they open the camera completely and clean all the inside part of the camera. because you need to clean the moisture inside of lens, viewfinder & sensor too.
So only hope in sunlight. If its solve then fine.

Objects displayed in both the lcd and viewfinder are blurry resulting in blurry pictures...how do I correct this?


Have you cleaned the lens lately? If not you may want to go to a local store and pickup some glass cleaner and a chamois cloth and wipe it.
Is there any cracks in the lens housing? If so there may be dust getting in between the lenses causing the blurriness, and to fix this you may want to take it to a camera technician.

All of my pictures are coming out blurry - this has happened with two different Casio Exilim EXZ75 cameras that I've owned... is this a setting that was accidentally turned on or something? HELP!


Blurriness usually has to do with the lens, not always, but more than likely.
Make sure no dirt or other kinds of stuff may be on the surface of the lens. It is rare happening that the ccd can become dirty from either dust or other debris or other kinds of things such as moisture.
Any digital camera is subject to damage from dirt, moisture, smoke may cause problems, and any kind of impact can damage the track of the lens, or the lens as well. A slight drop can cause problems or future problems. Some may be able to be fixed, others cannot.
Blurriness may be caused by internal circuit problems, because the focus is controlled by a processor. If this is the case, the camera needs repair at a repairman or someone who knows the camera, such as the Casio repair department, and can adjust it's electronics on a computer with special software specifically for that use.

Why do my Fun! Digital 320 pictures come out blurry?


Blurry images can be caused by any or all of the following: * Distance/Focus range -- the Fun! Digital 320 has a fixed focus range of 3 - 6 feet (1.8 meters) for brightly lit indoor photography, 3 ft. (1 meter) - infinity for outdoor photography. For best results, make sure that the camera is at least 3 feet away from the subject(s) when taking pictures. * Camera/Subject movement -- This is a common cause of blurriness, especially in low-light situations (see Lighting below). Hold the camera as steadily as possible while taking a photo, or use a tripod (a tripod mount is located on the bottom of the camera). Avoid subjects that are in motion. * Insufficient lighting -- the Fun! Digital 320 is designed for taking photos outdoors or in brightly lit environments. Inadequate lighting can exaggerate camera movement and contribute to blurred, "muddied," or uncrisp images. * Lens condition -- Check the lens periodically for smudges. If necessary, wipe the lens clean with a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues. * Enlarging images using software -- otherwise normal digital images can appear to become blurry and/or blotchy when over-enlarged in software. To see an image's "true" appearance, use the software's Zoom In or Zoom Out feature to view it at 100%.

DSC-T7 Blurriness


Try this test: Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness. If the picture is still blurred then there might be a problem with the AF but if it isn't blurred then the problem is either camera shake OR subject movement (or both).
