View through viewfinder is blurred - Digital Cameras


Answers :

Most of the time you can clean the lens with a soft cloth. Look on both sides of the viewfinder and clean each side. Another reason could be the focus is not right. Look on the side of the viewfinder and see if there is a dial you can move up and down. If there is, that's the focus knob. If the lens can be turned by hand, then twish the lens and that will also clear it up. It's hard to be exact because you didn't list a make or model.

Lost Pictures Our company has the Sony MVC-CD500 digital camera. I recently used this camera to take several pictures while on a job site. Back at the office, I could view the pictures in the camera's viewfinder, but was unable to download to my PC. The camera was unable to finalize, so my IT person used some software to try to read the disk and was unable. The mini-CD does have something on it as we were able to detect the change in color on the CD. Is there any way to recover these pictures? T

When turned on, my Olympus 700 Stylus digital camera shows a thin green vertical line on the right side of the viewfinder--7/16 of an inch to the left of the right edge of the viewing area. Part of this line from the bottom up appears on the images downloaded into my computer. However, when the intensity of the light is increased, the visibility of the line in the viewfinder and downloaded image is decreased. What is the problem and can it be corrected?

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.

I had my D5000 for a month now, recently i noticed something with my camera. looking though the viewfinder only, whenever i focus (half pressing the shutter button), the view from the viewfinder moves up, and without making the shot and letting go the half-pressed shutter button, the view from the viewfinder then moves down to its original position. These movements are noticeable just through the viewfinder with the VR on. But without the VR, the view from the viewfinder makes no movement. i don

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.

What are the optimal settings for my digital camera? I have a brand new Canon PowerShot 12.1-Megapixel Digital ELPH camera, but I've been really disappointed in the quality of pictures it takes. For example, sometimes there are these smallish blurred white circles on the pictures. Can you recommend optimal settings that I should be using? I use my camera indoors and occasionally outdoors, so whatever settings best cover all different conditions would be ideal.


Small white circles usually means dust on the lens.  Remove the dust with a blowerbrush - not a tissue.\012You are asking for a "1 size fits all" solution for your settings, and indoor and outdoor use really means different settings.   ...
