Question about Ricoh Caplio R4 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blurred image after switching on camera (takes blurred pictures ). Only cure is to slide the sound/film/camera button up and down until I see a clear image in the viewfinder screen. Often unsuccessful because can't see the screen clearly in bright light anyway.Also battery retaining catch has broken off - any suggestions?

The four main causes of blurry photos are:

  1. Out Of Focus
  2. The subject moves while the shutter is open
  3. The camera moves while the shutter is open
  4. Depth Of Field is too shallow
About the battery catch, visit some technicia shop to solve it.

BLURRED IMAGES


This is usually because it is hard to keep the camera absolutely still when taking the picture. It also happens when the subject is moving.

You could test that these are the problems by taking a picture of a still subject with the camera sitting steadily on a table. If the image is not blurred it means the camera itself is not faulty, and that it is not causing the problem.

The tendency to blurring depends upon how bright the light is. The sensor of digital cameras, or film on 35mm cameras, requires a certain amount of light to be able to record a good image, and the time needed to gather this amount of light is called the 'exposure' (e.g. 1/100 or 1/8 sec.).

If the light is poor the exposure will be longer and the image will be more likely to be blurred if the camera is not still, or if the subject moves.

The ISO setting (ASA for the film of 35mm cameras) determines the sensitivity of the sensor the higher settings, say ISO 800, being more sensitive. The disadvantage is that for each camera the image becomes too blotchy to be any use at a certain high ISO.

At higher ISO the sensor requires a lower exposure, and the Fnumber, which is the degree of light the lens lets in, has a similar influence: e.g. a lower Fnumber, say F2, allows a shorter exposure than F5.6.

With experience and practice, cameras which have a 'stabiliser' (O.I.S) can produce good pictures with exposure down to 1/4 sec but the limit is more likely to be 1/15 sec to 1/8 sec at best.

Untill you know how to use the manual settings it is best to use automatic settings and an ISO of 200 to 400 at most.

The photos from my Ricoh Caplio R4 are no longer sharp (they are blurred if anything). Lens is clean & undamaged, I have tried factory reset, new SD card, spare battery (just in case). Thanks in...


you seem to have a similar problem to the one I posted a couple of days ago John. Is your viewfinder image clear before you take your photo? Mine only takes clear shots if I move the sound/movie/camera button up and down a few times and actually see a clear image in the viewfinder before I take a shot. How you cure that is why I posted my query.

Blurred Images with Olympus E520


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.

My brand new just put batteries in it powershot is displaying NO IMAGE. the lens won't even pop out! what the hell?


LOL, sounds like you're in "picture review" mode. Except that you haven't taken any pictures yet, so there's "NO IMAGE" on your card just yet. To take a picture, you need to put your camera in "camera" mode. Slide that tiny slide switch in the upper right all the way up until it's next to that little red camera. Now take a picture.

Rewinding the film


The film will not rewind on its own. If you turn the camera over you will see a small slide switch with a small button next to it. Push the button in and slide the switch at the same time, the film should then rewind. Also the camera must be in the on mode.

JVC camcorder with blurred images


It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment: 1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. 2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you. 3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused. Hope this helps. NewMediaMan

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display


It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
