Question about Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Blury I just bought the Olumpus C 765. It is a really good camera. I am very happy with it. But when I try to take a picture indoor of a moving subject, between the focus time and the flash working the subject is very blury or out of the picture. Is there a way to fix that? Is it normal? Should I use some of the manual setting for that?

If you have not tried it......use manual focus. The Owner's manual will tell you how to set it. When shooting in low light, don't overdo the shutter speed. When you increase shutter speed, you need more light. Try a shutter speed of about 1/250th, while using "shutter priority" mode. Something else to try: Frame your subject and press the shutter button down half-way. Reframe your subject and then press the button down the rest of the way.

You are expecting too much for any auto mode. When shooting under low light conditions, the camera may take longer to achieve focus lock. If the subject is moving too, it will take even longer to lock focus. Try using manual focus for the conditions you described.

Why! when i take a picture with my Olumpus sp-600uz camera and try to see picture it comes up with a picture error message


I had a similar problem. I had to clear all of the pics from the storage memory. All is good now. You need to move the pics to a folder and then delete them from the storage memory, not just delete the pics. There are still pics stored on the internal memory. If you need more info, I can tell you how to get rid of them.

I get blury pictures


Possible that the CCD is a suspect. Try and allow the camera to be switched on for a long time, keep free from moisture or near a lamp to dry.
If not best is to take a referral for consensus without tampering without proper jig, spares and tools.

I have a nikon camera and indoor pictures come out blury


The most likely cause is a slow shutter speed, leading to image motion and camera motion.
There's generally less light indoors than outdoors under the sun. This means that the camera needs more time to gather enough light to form the image. If the camera moves during this time then the picture blurs. No matter how carefully you hold the camera, you can't hold it still for more than a small fraction of a second. Try putting the camera on a tripod or a tabletop and see what happens.
Also, the longer time allows for subjects (such as people) to move. Again with the camera on a tripod or tabletop, see whether people blur while the furniture comes out sharp.
Another way to combat the blur is to add more light. If all the subjects are more or less the same distance from the camera and not too far away, you can use the flash.

Bad indoor pictures. When I take indoor pictures and it says to use the flash I do but then my pictures turn out dark/grey. Then I try it without the flash and they are brighter but then blury. I even...


The flash has a range of up to around 10 feet at the wide end of the zoom, down to 6.5 feet at the tele end. Maybe you are using it on to big a distance or at to low ISO? Try setting the ISO to 800 and see if it helps. images get a bit more grainy at 800 ISO but are also less prone to camera shake, if you use it without the flash. The camera goes as high as 1600 ISO, but images get very grainy at that setting.

No good pictures


The symbols you are seeing are the blur warning indicators.

The yellow hand warns you that the picture may not be quite sharp enough for a standard 6" x 4" print - however you may be happy with it.

The red hand warns you that the picture is most likely to be poor quality, and won't produce a good 6" x 4" printed photo.

The reason you're getting these indoors, is that there's not enough light for the camera to take a good picture. As it tries to do so, it opens the shutter for longer to let more light in - however on doing so, if the camera isn't absolutely still, then the warning symbols will come on.

To remedy the above I'd have the following suggestion - if possible and practical, when shooting indoors, try and rest the camera on something solid when taking a photo. If this is not possible - try leaning against a wall to stabilise yourself. Even though you think you are holding the camera still - it's moving quite a lot.

Try one hand held photo - and one photo with the camera resting on something solid like a table and see what the difference is.

On my c-765 slow shutter speed


When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Blureness


try to put the camera when taking pictures on 'A' and putting it on the 3rd option of flash from the bottom and the 2nd from the top. Try not to move the camera too much or have the people in the picture move too much.
