Question about Olympus Camedia C-3030 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blurred image

Has anyone experienced a blurred image in the view finder of the 3030Z? I have adjusted the diopter knob on the side and the autofocus marks are sharp but the image I want to photograph is NEVER sharp. I compared it to my Nikon 6006 view finder image thinking there was possibly something wrong with my eyes but the Nikon's view finder was perfectly sharp. Are there any other adjustments I can make or is this the nature of the beast? I expect the image to be perfectly sharp just like my Nikon. Am I expecting too much from a digital camera compared to film? I've had the camera for two days and I'm extremely disappointed in this aspect of it and am thinking of returning it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Re: Blurred image

The viewfinder image should look sharp & clear, as long as the camera is turned ON. If the camera is OFF, the viewfinder image will blur. At least this is how it works on my C2000z. If your viewfinder is always blurry, I would return the camera for exchange.

Canon 1d mark 4 camera viewfinder problem


Adjust the viewfinder diopter to match your eye. Remove the rubber eyecup by grasping both sides and sliding it up. Turn the little knob to the left of the viewfinder until the focus points or center metering circle appear sharp. Replace the eyecup.

Try adjusting the diopter. There's a knob near the upper-right corner of the viewfinder. Turn the knob while looking at the viewfinder.

See the "Diopter adjustment" section on page 39 of the manual.

I have a Cannon EOS Rebel xsi SLR camera. When I look through the viewfinder the image is blurred. IT worked fine the last time I used it, but this time it is blurred and I haven;t been able to correct...


Two possible situations. It might be that the lens focusing system isn't working. Try focusing by hand (turn the lens manually) If the image moves through a point of sharp focus, then you have a lens or focus motor problem.
More likely, you have improperly adjusted the diopter. There is a small, circular wheel on the right side of the viewfinder, toward the top corner. It is sometimes covered by the rubber viewfinder hood so you might not notice it. This adjusts the diopter correction in the viewfinder and if it's set wrong, nothing will ever look in focus. The pictures would be fine, but since the diopter is a correction for your eyesight, the viewfinder will be out of focus.

When i look through the view finder it appears to be blurred I have cleaned outside of the lenses with the kit they supply There is no problem with the photograph quality


There's a diopter adjustment dial just to the left of the viewfinder. Turn that while looking through the viewfinder until the focus grid and the info at the bottom of the screen come into focus.

Focus problem


It sounds like the eyepiece focus adjustment knob may just need to be set for your eyesight. There should be a small knob or dial with a + & - sign around it. This is the "diopter" which doesn't affect the camera's focusing, only how you see the image.

Picture on viewfinder is blurred Everything in my viewfinder is blurred, even the numbers and stuff in there. The picture I take isn't blurred.


I think your camera has a diopter adjustment. If it does, it'll be located on the right side of the eyepiece. It's a small wheel with a + and -. Adjust that until the image is clear.
-or-
It's possible that it is in need of cleaning. If you plan to remove the focusing screen, be exceptionally careful not to scratch it. Has it been subjected to extreme moisture conditions?

View finder in samsung VP- W90 very blurred. Focus not the problem.


If the focus is blurred on the view finder, assuming you are talking about the eye piece and not the lcd, then it is a out of focus issue. Even though when you view it it's ok. Some cameras still have a focus knob somewhere to focus the eye piece.
