It is possible you have the Flash Mode set to one of the Slow Sync modes (lighting bolt with the word Slow). Slow synchronization flash sets a slow shutter speed for the background exposure and fires the flash for the subject exposure. Since the shutter speed is slow, your subject should be still and the camera should be on a tripod otherwise blur can result. Since this mode should only be used when the above conditions can be met, you should use the FILL-IN FLASH (single lighting bolt symbol) mode for most situations that require a flash for correct exposure. Repeatedly pressing the FLASH MODE button will cycle through the various flash mode settings.

Sanyo Xacti CA6EX shows just steaky, blurry image


Sounds tasty! ;)

Just kidding. What kind of stReaky images is it recording? Is the problem that you are using it in bad light (eg indoors at night)? It could just be camera shake.

Make sure that your camera is in auto mode and try again - if it was in a slow shutter speed mode, then this could be more of a problem. Also try using flash, if you camera has one.

Blurred images


This is mainly due to the slow shutter speed selected by your CAM. in low light situations the cam chooses a slow shutter speed to expose the image adequately. Any shakes that may have caused during the shutter operation will cause the funny images.

use tripod or other kind of support to your camera while shootiing in low light (indoors) without flash.

Which lens


Hey caturner7,
If you have a large family and you are having a difficult time fitting everyone in the frame then a wide angle lens might be exactly what you need, but this will probably not make your images any sharper. The most common cause of blurry images is the camera is moving during exposure. Even the slightest camera shake can cause blurry images. There are multiple solutions to this, first make sure the shutter speed is high enough, then make sure the ISO is set to about 400, and then make sure the flash is on. Another cause of this could be that the camera is not achieving focus so make sure you are pressing the shutter button down halfway so the camera can achieve focus before you take the picture. A slightly telephoto lens usually produces the most pleasing portraits. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Canon s200 digital elph will take the pic but it is all blurry, was working fine previously


Hey ednjoey2007,
The most common cause of blurry images is the camera moved during exposure so make sure to hold the camera as steady as possible. Another common cause of blurry images is caused by not holding the shutter button halfway down to achieve focus, and then press the button all the way down to take the picture. Another cause of blurry images on this camera is the AF assist beam is either blocked or set to off, and lastly if your subject is too close to the camera (closer than 1.9ft) your image will come out blurred. I hope this helps!

Blurry


Hey abbyr,
The most common cause of blurry images is called camera shake which is the slight movement of the camera caused by hand holding the camera during exposure. This cause can be solved by setting the camera to shutter priority and shooting with a faster shutter speed (1/60th of a second or faster). If you are using flash this is most likely not the problem since the shutter speed with flash is irrelevant since the duration of the flash determines the exposure. Another cause of blurry pictures is caused by not prefocusing on your subject prior to taking the image by holding the shutter button half way down so the camera can achieve proper focus before taking the picture. If none of this helps I would bring your camera to a local camera store and have an expert look at it and make sure you have it set up properly, and if you do I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

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!

Sincerely,
Allan

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%.

Indoor flash images are blurry


It is possible you have the Flash Mode set to one of the Slow Sync modes (lighting bolt with the word Slow). Slow synchronization flash sets a slow shutter speed for the background exposure and fires the flash for the subject exposure. Since the shutter speed is slow, your subject should be still and the camera should be on a tripod otherwise blur can result. Since this mode should only be used when the above conditions can be met, you should use the FILL-IN FLASH (single lighting bolt symbol) mode for most situations that require a flash for correct exposure. Repeatedly pressing the FLASH MODE button will cycle through the various flash mode settings.
