Why is the image in the view finder blurry


There could be several reasons.

The camera isn't focused. Adjust the focus.

The diopter is not set properly. Some cameras have a viewfinder diopter adjustment. This is similar to putting eyeglasses on the camera. Just as things will look blurry to you if you look through someone else's glasses, the viewfinder will be blurry if the diopter is not set properly for your vision. I wish I could tell you how to adjust this (or even whether your camera has it) but since you didn't bother to specify the model of your Olympus camera...

By adjusting the diopter on your camera effect the image quality? I guess what I'm trying to say is, will the diopter setting effect how your camera adjusts the focus in auto or manual?


Diopter is for your eye only and does not effect the focus of the camera. By using the 1/2 down method, by pressing the photo taking button half way down, you can set the cameras focus. on some cameras this is shown where it will focus by a red square. If you change the diopter this is like adding by focal lenses for reading a book. and setting the distance your particular eye needs for eye relief. On binoculars this is done with screwing the eyepiece closer or farther away from the other lens. check out online http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyeglass_prescription this will give you more details of what a diopter is or does. Always know what setting your shooting at as well. for instance if you are on a flower setting or Macro then this is for up close work. But up close doesn't mean too close. Most cameras on Macro need to be 6 inches to 12 inches away. But if you are say 24 inches away it won't focus right so don't try to zoom in, use your optical instead of digital and simply move closer or change the settings on the camera to a different setting or it may be blurry.

When I look through the lens at the top everything appears blurry but when I open the lens door everything appears clear. Why?


On the left of the viewfinder, there is a little wheel. That is the diopter adjustment, which must be adjusted for your eyes. Rotate the wheel until things look in focus when you look through the viewfinder. The diopter wheel on the SX10 IS is prone to move when you take your camera in and out of the case, so it may need readjustment regularly.

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.

Can't see symbols in viewfinder of a Pentax ist dl.They are completely blurry and unreadable


There's a diopter adjustment lever just above the viewfinder. Adjust it while peering through the viewfinder. This may be easier if you remove the rubber eyecup.

For further details see the "Adjusting the Viewfinder Diopter" section on page 39 of the manual.

When you have a diopter adjustment dial, try looking through your viewfinder and move the diopter one way or the other until it appears to be in focus for you.

Blur viewfinder


hi,

are the photos also blurred when they come out? if adjusting the diopter doesnt fix the issue, you might need to have your camera and lens calibrated. why the lens? its because the issue may be isolated to the lens calibration otherwise the technician will only calibrate the body.

Canon digital camera will not focus


Check your diopter adjustment. It should be a small wheel on the upper right of the viewfinder. It is designed so that people who normally wear eyeglasses can use the viewfinder without their glasses, but it can occasionally get bumped. If the diopter adjustment is way off, it is like looking through someone else's eyeglasses!

Epson 850Z diopter adjustment


I did the same thing with the diopter, but no damage seems to have come of it. It does feel very stiff and 'clicky' anyway, but it does work. You will only be able to notice any adjustment to the diopter when the camera is on.
