The background blurs when the aperture number is low (like 2.8 or so) one needs to either set the aperture priority such - and let the camera select the iso and the shutter speed - or go manual and set this yourself, considering the meter readings to get a balanced image.

SOURCE: have a fujifilm finepix s1000fd and when I use

Your cameras focus lens is probably stuck.
It operates via a long metal rod, a pin which follows a track in the side wall of the lens and a tensioned spring. one or more of these has probably jammed causing the focus lens not to move when you zoom.
Unfortunately for this camera, if you cannot free it by switching on/off, tapping the lens etc, you will have to strip the camera down to get at the lens unit. you will have to discharge the flash capacitor before desoldering the control board from the main board before removing to access the lens.
Recommend you find someone who knows about this or send to Fuji.

SOURCE: Fujifil FinePix S6500fd: How to focus

What you are asking about is called depth of field. Boiled down, it means that there is a certain amount of area in an image that is in focus, given the focal length of the lens, the aperture (size of the shutter opening) and some other factors. There's a lot of theory behind it, but you just want to know how to accomplish that creative blur behind the subject, right?

If your camera has the capability to choose the aperture, known as the f-stop, either with a manual mode or an aperture-priority mode, then this is pretty easy. The larger the aperture (size of shutter opening) the smaller the depth of field, which means only a small area is in focus. The aperture, or f-stop, is denoted with numbers like F/2.8 or F/8, etc. The lower the number, the bigger the aperture and the more background blur you will get. There is an inverse relation ship between shutter opening and speed, too. A big opening like F2.8 means a faster shutter speed, versus a small opening like F/22. Every lens is different, so your aperture options will vary.

If your camera does not allow you to choose the aperture, it may still have a "scene" setting you can use. A "portrait" or "night" setting usually has a bigger aperture than, say, a "landscape" setting.

Other factors also contribute to creating background blur. All else being equal, the blur increases as you move closer to the subject or as you zoom in on the subject with a zoom lens. Also, having greater space between the background and your subject increases blur.

So, to maximize background blur and create a shallow depth of field, you want to pick the largest aperture possible (smallest f-stop number), you want to get close to the subject and extend your zoom as much as you can, and you want to maximize the distance between the subject and the start of any background objects. Your success will depend in part on your camera and lenses.

If all else fails, you can also artificially create the background blur in software after the image is taken, but that's another story!

To blur the background, you need a shallow depth of field, which requires a small aperture.

Select Aperture priority by moving the mode select dial to A
Press the +/- button, the shutter speed and aperture are displayed
press the selector up/down to select the aperture
press the +/- button to exit shooting mode

IF the selected aperture is outside the shooting range of the camera, shutter speed will show ---

How to blur background in fuljifilm finepix s2980??? Plz tell me as i want to click pictures urgently .


Background blur is a consequence of a shallow depth of field, meaning that the distance where things are in focus is a small area in front of you. Closer, it's blured. Further and is blured too.

Backbround blur can be obtained with:

  1. using a big aperture - you can't change the aperture on the Finepix, as it hasn't a diaphragma, but a ND filter.
  2. using a long lens - that means you have to use the biggest zoom you can with your camera
  3. close subject and distant background - when you use a longer lens, the depth of field get shallow, so you have to garantee that the background is out of the zone where everything is on focus.

Hi. I have a Fujifilm Finepix 1000s. The screen is displaying a yellow image of a camera with an exclamation mark. Does anyone know what's it means please.


The camera is warning you that the shutter speed may be too slow for you to handhold the camera steady enough to prevent camera motion from blurring your photo.
For full details refer to the "Warning Messages and Displays" section of the manual (page 113)

How do you remove the blur warning icon from the camera screen. Thanks


Welcome To FixYa.

Blur warning ussually appears in Suppressed flash mode. In this mode the flash does not fire even when the subjects is poorly lit. Blur warning will appear in the monitor at slow shutter speeds to warn that pictures may be blurred. Use of a tripod is recommended.

To view or hide other indicators on the screen/monitor you just have to click the DISP/BACK button.

I hope this information will help you on your issues regarding your camera.
Feel free to send us comments and suggestion if this information is helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa.
