DSC-S75 focusing problems...

It seems lately my DSC-S75 have trouble focusing in low light. A lot of pictures I have taken just seem to lack sharpness. They aren't out of focus, but just very soft and blurry. Tonight I took some and some didn't come out that well. I have the Sony F1000 flash with a custom diffuser. Any thoughts to why this may be?

Re: DSC-S75 focusing problems...

Without seeing a photo, here are a few possibilities. 1) Shutter speed too low (camera shake). 2) Camera is focusing on something in the foreground. 3) Focus not locked, low light, low contrast scene. Items 2 and 3 can be corrected by manual focus. Set the focus to 1 click below infinity, depth of field will insure everything is in focus. For item 1 remember that the shutter speed must be 1/125 sec or faster at full zoom to avoid camera shake.

The LCD-screen seems to work normal. But when we take a picture (camera-mode normal and record-mode normal) the result is overlighted and misty and full of horizontal lines. In video mode the camera works...


Try to use a different setting like a bright light setting to see if the apeture is closed down further and brings back focus.
the problem is the auto focus which can be going stray and is not setting right.So take time to shoot with the shutter button down to half to allow it to focus and then once the indication of the focus has confirmed to click.
If not contact Sony service for help.

My pictures have a blue tint...I have a DSC-S75


If you took the pictures in fluorescent lighting they will have a blue cast. To correct that, you need to set the white balance option in your camera. Pictures of a snow landscape and others will also have a blue cast at times, unless you set the white balance correctly. There are many places online that discuss these settings for phtography in general.

Shutter speed very slow and has trouble focusing. When I press the the shutter button it takes several seconds before it takes a picture if at all. It seems as though it is having trouble focusing and when...


There is a diaphragm between the shutter button and the shutter switch that causes the camera to focus before the shutter is pressed all the way down. It is likely that the diaphragm is punctured and needs to be replaced. There is also a small possibility that the hidden secondary battery inside the camera is going bad.

My camera will not immediately take a picture.


The beep and no shutter action is usually because the auto focus is not focused. If you are using a zoom lens try backing up or unzooming a little.

Digital SLR will not focus


check the contacts on the lens... since it is copper and would develop copper rust... clean with iso alcohol and let air dry for an hour... clean the contacts on the camera too.

reset the camera back to factory defaults by mode dial to p, press menu, and custom reset back to factory defaults

also certain camera settings such as focus points and iso will help in low light

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised


As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.

Can the DSC-S75 shoot in B & W?


Scenes modes are for when you aren't sure about the settings yourself and just want the camera to try to figure it out. They can work pretty well, but they are more for the point-n-shooter. With the manual capabilities, those are where I'd focus my attention. Still, the scenes modes are adequate for the types of situations that most people will need: • Twilight (low light shots, long exposures) • Landscape (focus locked to infinity, small apertures, flash cancel) • Portrait (large apertures) Beyond that, and you're likely to use either Auto or the Full Manual Mode. Of course, you can shoot in B & W. This is a very basic function for most digicams, and a walk in the park for advanced cameras like the S75. I'd also bet that a S75 B&W shot with the Sharpness turned down to -2 would make for a very interesting and moody shot. You can add a zoom lense. In my opinion, the best tele lens for the advanced-class Cyber-shot family members (S75, S70, and F505V) is the Olympus B-300. You'll have to do a search of your own to find it. It's rare now, because it seems everyone has sort of "discovered" its capabilities --- Sony users, Canon users, Olympus users. Get one if you can.

505V owners please help me! 505V noise?


I don't know if it's considered "normal" or not, but my F505V does the same thing. The original in the msg above was only 2 seconds -- take a look at it and see how it compares to yours.
