Question about Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

The subject is very blury or out of the picture

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?

Re: The subject is very blury or out of the picture

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.

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.

Olympus C-765 - won't take photos anymore. Memory card is fine and camera has worked perfectly for the past two years. Does anybody have a solution? The camera seems to function as normal, but when I press...


Reset the menus to default or factory settings.
Then test the camera again.
Make sure that the battery is fully charged or new.
You might consider to buy a new battery (Ebay is a good place) for this camera. Then test.
Problems like this can show up when the battery is weak or not fully charged.
You may try to remove the battery for 24 hours and then after try it again.

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.

Autofocus blury


If you would like to reduce the blurring, please check the following before taking a picture:

1 Distance
- When the distance between the camera and the subject is too close, the strength of the light can cause the picture to overexposed and be blurred. On the contrary, if the distance is too far, the beam is too weak to shed enough light on the subject. Allow yourself enough space between you and your subject.

2 Shutter
- If you press the shutter before the flash is fully charged,
the flash will not be able to emit enough light and therefore
the image can be blurred.

3 Surrounding Light
- Use the fill-in flash mode to create a balanced shot when
the surrounding light is very bright.

4 Backlight
- Use the backlight control feature when the background
is brighter than the subject.

5 Cleaning
- Clean the lenses with a smooth piece of cloth.

6 ASR (Advanced Shake Reduction)
- Put in ASR mode to prevent any blur

7 Power Reset
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Try to do the MASTER RESET.
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved

Turn off camera after the settings
have been changed to refresh the camera.

If it still does not work, try calling the Manufacturer so they could assist you on where to send it in for SVC.

D50, blury pics


Blur can occur if the shutter speed is too low relative to the degree of movement of your subject(s). While the 'sports' mode favors shutter speed and adjusts the focus for moving subjects, you may still need to increase the ISO (I'm not sure the camera does that automatically), or use flash, if feasible.
Alternatively, try panning the camera with your moving subject. This should blur the background, but keep the subject from blurring.
Finally, keep in mind that in sports photography, blur is sometimes a desired outcome that produces a sense of motion in an otherwise static photo.

Hope that helps.

Won't focus when zooming into the subject


It seems that the lense element which mooves while zooming the camera is stucked. normally this happens when the camera suffers a heavy jery, may be by dropping the camera. Resulting into disalingment of the lense assambly. You will need the help of repair shop to solve the problem.

Purpose of the Histogram feature


When taking a picture, the camera analyzes the brightness and contrast of your subject and displays it on the LCD monitor so that you can evaluate and adjust the exposure properly.
