Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a nikon camera and indoor pictures come out blury


Answers :

The most likely cause is a slow shutter speed, leading to image motion and camera motion.
There's generally less light indoors than outdoors under the sun. This means that the camera needs more time to gather enough light to form the image. If the camera moves during this time then the picture blurs. No matter how carefully you hold the camera, you can't hold it still for more than a small fraction of a second. Try putting the camera on a tripod or a tabletop and see what happens.
Also, the longer time allows for subjects (such as people) to move. Again with the camera on a tripod or tabletop, see whether people blur while the furniture comes out sharp.
Another way to combat the blur is to add more light. If all the subjects are more or less the same distance from the camera and not too far away, you can use the flash.

Most likely the problem is "Camera shake". This just means that being in the dark, the camera shutter speed is long enough that the natural shake of your hands make the picture blurry. \015\012\015\012You've got a couple options. The e ... Nikon Coolpix 4800 Digital Camera

Dust Orbs I am having serious problems with "Dust Orbs" appearing in pictures. Mostly indoor pictures. These things are ruining my pictures. Are they caused by the Infrared Beam that the camera uses to focus? Or is something else wrong with my camera? Do ALL digital cameras have this problem with dust? Do DSLR have same problem? How come these dust orbs only appear with Digital Cameras, and not film? I need a digital camera that works indoors. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance....


Many digital cameras have this problem, though it has nothing to do with the camera being digital. It is small specks of dust in the air being illuminated. You will never see this problem without a flash.\015\012\015\012The reason you see it on digit ... Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

Animal Eyes When I take a picture of our pets with my camera their eyes come out white when they are supposed to be dark. All of the pictures have been indoors with the flash and the camera set to auto. I'm illiterate when it comes to cameras so could someone help me out! Thanks.

This is to inform that I am having Casio Digital Camera Exilim EX-Z500 for last few years. The same was giving very good pictures, but last week, it suddenly started malfunctioning. Whenever, we took indoor pictures, they were coming out well as per attached pictures (CIM2831 & CIM2826) but when the camera was taken outside in the day light, though the picture was very clear on the LCD screen but after clicking, the picture is overshadowed with white light (as per other attached pictures).


Some things to try:\0121. Go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.\0122. Check the ISO setting....you may have it set too high for outdoor pictures.\0123. Check the "exposure compensation"...it should be at "0". ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

Camera problems Every time i try to turn on my camera it will sometimes turn off byitself and i cannot zoom in or erase pictures and when i take the picture it will not takeits time to tak the picture it will just take it and always come out blury

I have a Nikon CoolPix 4300 that is about 5 years old. I mostly use it in the Macro mode for close-up photos of the sewing thimbles I sell on eBay. The last two times I've used the camera, I can take only a few pictures (2 or 3) before the camera shuts itself off. It will come back on by itself, after a while, but I have to totally reset it to take only a few pictures, then it shuts off again. I have set the auto shut off to 30 minutes, but that didn't help.

Blury I just bought the Olumpus C 765. It is a really good camera. I am very happy with it. But when I try to take a picture indoor of a moving subject, between the focus time and the flash working the subject is very blury or out of the picture. Is there a way to fix that? Is it normal? Should I use some of the manual setting for that?


If you have not tried it......use manual focus.\015\012The Owner's manual will tell you how to set it.\015\012\015\012When shooting in low light, don't overdo the shutter speed. When you increase shutter speed, you need more light. Try a shutter spee ... Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

I bought a used canon xs from craigslist. I think a hard lesson learned already. Anyway the camera appears to be in great condition. The problem is whenever I take a picture it does not come out right. The colors are way off. Some colors look fine, blue will come out beige, gray or green. This is with the flash indoors or outdoors with just normal light and the camera on full auto. I called canon and they said it sounds like the sensor is going bad. Just wondering if anyone has any advic

Focus problems Hi, my camera is not focusing clearly.

I am a photographer and I got this camera for when I want to take pictures of family and not having to get out my Nikon everytime and MISS a perfect shot.

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.


It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras
