Grainy pics The thing isn't focusing well -- the view is off, and when pics are taken they are quite grainy and even impossible to decipher. problem on all settings. New batteries did not correct the problem.

    Actually, the problem seems to be a CCD image sensor. In for repairs (Canon covering even though out of warranty).

Yikes. Nah, its not battery related. Usually those cameras require that you push part way down on the shutter release so the camera focuses. As for the grainy prob, you might change the cameras setting to its highest resolution. The setting's buried in your menu & will be listed as fine or best - under image quality. Another reason for grain results from shooting in low light.

I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it...

Take a flashlight with you and shine it on what you want to focus. Press the shutter half-way, shut off the flashlight and press the rest of the way.

I have a new polaroid I735 camera and the pics are very grainy and blurry even when viewed through lcd screen. Any ideas?

maybe you zoom in a lot and then it would be normal and if the pictures come out fine, i wouldn't worry about it but if the print pics come out grainy and blurry i would take it back if you have warranty

LCD screen not sharp / focusing when taking pictures

This camera is ancient by today's standards, at least 8 years old.

Your focus problem is that the back display is very low resolution, so it will never show a sharp image. 9MP should give a decent image when you view it on a computer. If not, you probably need to part with the camera. it is not worth much these days anyway.

Out of focus pictures

Thanks for responding but will contact Fuji support to find an answer. I didn't realize that the support with FixYa incurs charges.

Pic focus & convergence

Before you replace the ICs, try resoldering the connections on them. Also check the area for other poor solder connections. Resolder any that appear tobe grainy or have rings. Update this with your results and report if the symptoms change.

Thanks,
Dan

CANNON S50IS

Guest is quite right - use the macro button on left hand side of lens (holding camera pointing at subject) Press once for "macro" which focuses from 10cm away. If you hold this button in for about 2 seconds, it puts your camera into "supermacro" mode, which gives focus from right up against the lens! (need backlighting for this close!) Supermacro will not work in Auto and Sport mode. Best is to use "AV" or "TV"

As far as viewing your pics goes - rotate the mode lever (You turn this anti-clockwise to turn ON) clockwise and you will see the most recent pic on your LCD screen. Use the left and right direction on the omni selector to naviagate through your pics.

Its a good idea to download the advanced manual onto your pc from the dic supplied. Its an adobe document and very user-friendly.

I hope this helps you.... :)

Spider-man 3-in-1 digital camera model #94044

Had same problem -- after removing and re-installing both the software and camera (multiple times), I found that I could get the pics via Picasa -- in Picasa, the camera shows up 2 different times for me, as a "dual mode camera"; the 2nd entry works, letting me import the pics. Terrible pics, btw, very blurry and grainy, even when taken in bright light (get what you pay for, right?).

I hate booting back to Windows, though -- I use Linux -- but even gphoto2 (which can handle just about ANY camera that Linux won't handle natively as a USB storage device) can't handle the proprietary encoding format Sakar uses. Oh well.
