Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Blurry pictures in a Canon powershot SD400


\015 I've had this camera since Jan of 2006, it has worked great for me and I have taken a lot of pictures with it. Lately when I take a picture I notice that it is very blurry and has a white look to it... I have tried resetting all of my settings and nothing seems to be helping it. Do you think maybe I need a new battery since I have gotten so much use out of mine (it is the rechargeable one that came with the camera) or what could my problem be? I hate to buy a new battery and that not even fix my issue! thanks!\015

Answers :

The quality of photos has absolutely nothing to do with batteries and chargers, and very rarely with memory cards. If a salesperson tries to sell you one of the above, they're taking advantage of you!

First of all, make sure that the settings are appropriate for the lighting conditions of a given shot. Having a long exposure (e.g. 2 seconds) in daylight will produce blurry images that are overexposed (i.e. very white and washed out).

If you are positive that the settings are ok, and the problem persists even after changing modes (from auto to manual, etc), then try to use another memory card, or even the same, after formatting it and cleaning the contacts (with a dry fabric).

If the problem persists even then, you'd better send it for service

Blurry pictures My canon Powershot A95 digital camera is taking very blurry shots. At first i thought it was the LCD but the old pics taken are viewing fine, the ones I take now are all blurred. I think maybe it has something to do with the lense.


Wipe off the lense with a clothe or something, that might be the problem. Or if you move the cam too much when you are trying to take a pic, that also mighht be the problem. If not, I have no idea. ... Canon IXUS V2 Digital Camera

I am a freelance writer. I have a Canon PowerShot A1000IS that I use to take photos to go along with articles I write for the local paper. Recently almost all the pictures I take are blurry on the top 1/3 of the photo. It hasn't always been this way and it doesn't happen all the time so it makes me think that possibly I have somehow gotten some of the settings off. The bottom 1/3 is sometimes a little blurry too but not as much as the top. Can anyone tell me what would cause this and what I can
