My E 620 shutter does not work when using viewfinder, but works when using screen


While using the viewfinder, does any warning come in the viewfinder?
Not sure, but if you are shooting in a different mode, it could be there is not enough light, or the camera can't focus.
Using the viewfinder the camera will use a different way to focus as when using the display.
Perhaps the autofocus, does not work correct. Looking through he viewfinder, wait till the AF confirmation mark lights up. (bottom left)
If it won't light up, something is wrong with the AF.

Nikon d5100 Blurry photos When I take photos of a party, at night, my photos are very blurry. How can I fix..


Use autofocus if you have a AF lens on it.

Usually you get a kit 18-55 AF lens that has a A/M switch on the side. The switch should be facing the A side so it's set on autofocus. Then you have 9 points on your viewfinder, those are the autofocus points. It should usually be set to center, because you usually want the object in center of your photo to not be blurry.
Remember to press the shutter button halfway and give some time for the autofocus to focus. Then you can press it all the way, you should have your photos nice and clear.

If you happen to have a manual focus lens, you should be watching through the viewfinder and turning the focus ring on the lens and determine if your object is in focus. It's hard at night, but get some practice at home when you have some more light so you get more familiar with the focus.

Nikon D60 does not work in autofocus


Do you have access to another camera? If you do, try the lens on that camera. If you get the same results, it's the lens. If no, then it's the camera body. Once you isolate the problem you'll know if you need to get the lens fixed or if you need to get the camera fixed.

Lumix DMC- FZ30 - screen is black when camera is turned on


Check if you have activated the Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). Press the EVF/LCD button to switch to the LCD screen. If this fails to solve the problem, change the mode dial to Auto (the red camera icon) or 'P' and try again. If even this does not work, check with the nearest authorized service center.

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down


Hello,
It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.

Fuzzy pictures from my Panasonic DMC-FZ5


Fuzzie picture -meaning out of focus? Check that you have not got 1- macro setting on [setting symbol looks like a tiny plant] or that you have a low light setting which menas it is taking long exposures. Aslso the Auto foxus may not be function as it should - one possibility is that the way you hold the camera covers the 'window' make sure your fingers are aware from any of the front top panel 'windows' When you depress the shutter part way down- does the lens 'motor' to focus Or indeed are you doing part way or are snapping off shot and giving the camera time to focus? Lots of thing for you to check out, before we start getting worried. The difficult ones are if the camera has taken a knock and the lens mount has become dislodged But do all the check first and do consult the manual

Shutter lag


I don't know what your measurement conditions were, but there's no way the shutter lag after focus is 1/2 second. I don't have a quantitative number at my finger tips, but it surely falls into the "instantaneous" category, as far as I can tell. I've taken plenty of action shots and candids, including shots of flying birds, that will back that up
