I realize that participants are sincerely trying to help others, but I find that most solutions provided do not resolve the problem. That's because the solution does not go far enough. For example, "Reset the camera to factory settings", but, how is that done?

Check to make sure you have not inadvertently set the camera into manual focus mode. Many cameras have 2 modes: auto focus and manual focus.

I like to get up close pics of objects especially plants and scenery. The problem is when I zoom in the picture is always blurry and cannot focus on objects that are not far away. Is there anyway setting...


most cameras come with an option called macro,this setting is for close up shots.on your camera it needs to set at wide angle.when choosing the shooting mode move left or right and choose the icon of a flower.if you adjust the zoom, a zoom bar will appear at the top of the lcd.if you try to use a zoom not intended for macro shots the flower icon will gray out and the bar will appear yellow,if you take a picture with the yellow bar it will be blurry.if you zoom out a little until it stops you should be ok. if you use a flash in macro mode the images edges usually will darken.hope this helps.

I have a Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z80 Digital Camera. And my promblem is that once i zoom out everything is blurry. The whole picture is blurry but once I zoom out it is a bit better but not as much. I need...


Try cleaning the lens gently with a lens cloth or maybe a damp paper towel? Other than that - you may have something stuck in your lens that is making everything blurry when you zooom in...or the lens may need to be replaced to be fully functional. Do you notice any blurry spots when you zoom out that get bigger when you zoom in? If so something may be stuck in your lens. Good luck!

Every picture i take is not a good quality either it's blurry or the color is horrible - kind of yellowish - what kind of adjustment do i have to make


Well the blurry is caused by poor focus. Try not to zoom too much. Better to get closer to the subject if possible. Study your manual and adjust your diopter which loosely means adjust the viewfinder in and out whilst looking at a subject without using any zoom until the picture is clear. Then take you'll find it easier to focus when you do actually zoom. Sometimes there's a small sliding piece of plastic sticking out of the side of the lens. Otherwise it's a matter of turning the eyepiece to get the clarity. That's why I said check the manual. That will explain which method to use.

The yellowish colour is unusual. I would say check you have the White balance switch set to auto but lack of white balance is not usually a yellow picture. But check the white balance switch anyway and make sure it's in auto mode.

Ordinary light bulbs or some street lighting can give a yellow caste so check you have the inside outside button switched to the correct position, depending on where you are at the time of shooting.

Did you buy the camera used or new. Often people who have faulty cameras will sell them off cheap and run. Leaving the owner with the problems.

So to sum up. get closer to your subject rather than use zoom if you can. If you use a lot of zoom either use a tripod or place the camera on a firm surface or even hold the camera whilst you stop yourself from moving by leaning against a wall or tree etc.

Next remeber where you are and switch the indoor/outdoor switch accordingly

Problem with my Olympus FE-230


When I turn my camera on, the lens goes in and out a few times. Once it's finally on and I look at the screen, everything is blurry. When I take the picture, it's blurry too. If I try to use the zoom to adjust, the lens starts going in and out all crazy and won't adjust right.

That particular model has Easy Focus; ensures crystal clear videos - just turn focus ring to adjust range from 10 cm infinite. I do believe if you turn it to the left it will zoom in, and to the right is zoom out. Could be the reverse of that tho. The focus ring is around the lense.

It happened to my camera just recently too. I guess it's a zoom fault error. Anyway, I wentto the camera repair store to get it fixed and they called up Sony who then proceeded to destroy my hopes of fixing my camera...cost of repair? $298.95

Focus on zoom


it is not the ccd problem .
the lens adjustment and ccd have no relation.actually when optical unit was replaced ,it is not fixed properly and due to internal lens de-adjustment.you would find blurry images on zooming.
it must be re-adjusted.
