Re: Major blurring/sharpness problem with Pentax Optio...

Thanks for posting the photos.....they tell a lot. You need to return that camera and get a refund. The camera is defective. The first two photos were taken under good lighting conditions and you should have gotten good shots. The last two were taken at low light and the camera was using 1/30th of a second shutter speeds which could account for some blurring due to camera movement. The last one appeared to be a flash shot and it selected 1/30th second. Not a good thing for the camera to do. But all photos have the appearance that you are shooting through a fog. And all photos were shot with an ISO setting of 200. There is something wrong with this camera for that to happen on the first two shots. I checked the EXIF data that is embedded in the photos. That gives you the shutter speed, aperture setting and focal length, ISO settings, and other information. I have not seen a review of the Pentax Optio 50. But the older S50 did not get good reviews. If I were you, I would look for a different brand of camera. For a few dollars more you can get a Nikon 5600.

My Pentax Optio 50 digital camera almost immediatelly shows that even brand new batteries are empty (red sign) and practicly not possible to make one photo.


Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Driver


Windows XP uses its own built-in drivers for digital cameras like your Optio 50. There is not driver for you to download.

With XP you should be able to simply open up the "My Computer" icon on your desktop.
Under "My Computer" you should see a "Removable Disk".
Double Click on it, and then your should see "DCIM", double click on that and then you will see "100PENTX".
Double click on "100PENTX" and you will see all your pictures.
You can then copy those pictures to anywhere on your computer.

If this does not work for you, you can always use a card reader to download your pictures. Many later model computers have built-in SD card readers. If your computer does not have a slot for an SD card you can purchase a card reader, usually for under $20, at most major computer/electronics equipment retailers.

My Pentax Optio E40 Camera


The built-in memory only has about 8 pictures or so. You have to buy a memory card to insert in the same section where the batteries are inserted.

Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera Lens Error


Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.
