Question about Olympus Camedia C-700 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blurry pictures

When I take this camera out to the motocross track to take pictures they come in blurry as hell you cant see anything. My dad the self proclaimed camera expert says this is because there isnt enough light out there. But if that is the case why is it the camera can do videos with no problem? They dont come up blurry at all. Actually the video are pretty nice. I would guess it is the shudder speed is too slow and I need to make it faster??? Is that a good guess? Or could it be the digital zoom? I know this can take pictures of dirt bikes jumping they are not going that fast maybe 20-30mph at most.

You're both right. The pictures are blurry because the shutter speed is too slow, but it's too slow because there isn't enough light for it to be faster. Try this: Set the ISO to 800 Set the camera at shutter priority mode, and enter 1/160 for wide angle to mid-zoom, and 1/400 for full zoom. If the pictures come out too dark ( and you're too far to use the flash ), you can always brighten them on the computer. But if they're blurry, you can't really fix that.

Tracking a subject is one thing but, taking an action picture is something else altogether. You will need to set the ISO to a higher number to force the shutter to set a faster speed stop the action.

Nikon D60x Blurry night pictures

Try switching to Shutter Prority (S) with a fast shutter speed.If the light is not so good, up the iso to 800 to gain that faster shutter speed..

You do not say the lens in use ? if VR, make sure its switched on or use a tripod.

Hope this helps

My screen shows a blurry picture and it takes a blurry picture. it didnt used to. what is wrong? how do i fix it?

I have the exact same problem. When I was in NY last fall, suddenly my camera would only take blurry pictures. I hadn't changed any settings or anything. I can get halfway decent pictures in Auto mode, but any of the other settings only take blurry pictures. Apparently a lot of people have this problem, but no one knows how to solve it...
