Question about Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I am not getting good close-up pictures!!

I recently purchased an Olympus C765 and am mostly pleased with the camera except I am having problems getting good close-up pictures. I set it to the close-up tab and when I take the picture it looks great in the viewing window but the picture comes out too bright and I have tried several taking several pictures and they all come out the same. With mode set on auto the pictures comes out great, I just can't get the hang of close-ups. Does anyone have any suggestions for setting my Olympus C765 so it will take good close-ups?

I wish you have explained more about what you mean by close-ups. If you are talking about portraits: ...avoid flash - use some type of dim portable lamps ...use the optical zoom set to about 2X .....move back and reframe the subject ...set the camera to "aperture priority" and .....select f2.8 (to blur the background) If you are talking about table top photography: ...avoid flash - use some type of bright .....portable lamps ...use a tripod ...set the camera to shutter priority and select a .....slow shutter speed (to increase depth of field) ...focus on the exact spot you want to be sharpest

My olympus digital 800 have a blank screen when im taking picture how can i fix it....


I recently experienced a similar problem with my Stylus Digital 800 where I got a black screen everytime I took a photo. The shutter could have been stuck in the closed position. This problem developed five years after I purchased the camera. I replaced the lens assembly (p/n VJ 946700) with a new one from Olympus Parts and this solved the problem.

Olympus C-765 does not focus


Dear Benjamin,

I also own an olympus c765 and was wondering how to use the manual focus option when I came across your post. Actually I have been wondering whether manual focus is of any use in an olympus c765 because the manual does not talk anything about it.
However, I just found out that there is a way of activating/deactivating manual focus. Here it goes:
1. Turn the camera on
2. Switch to any mode - portrait/landscape etc
3. Press and hold the 'OK' button on the centre for a second until you see a MF/AF option on the screen
4. Switch to MF and focus on any subject by pressing the up/down keys.

Most likely, your camera has been turned to Manual Focus option, which is why it is not focussing any more. Follow the steps above and turn it back to Auto Focus option and let me know if your problem gets solved.

Regards

C765 takes a swim


Try to sell it as a sparepart. Some components may have survived. I think of the Display or the keyboard on the back cover.

White balance problem


My experience is that in geneeral terms white balance of the C765 is almost perfect. The earlier C740 did have a purple color in the white areas. The pictures need most a light push on trigger to first set up all correct. If you do so it should be nice colored. Olympus own xD card is required to make panorama pictures. Several pictures can then be set together within the PC software Cameras
