The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's

Fiji Finepix F401 - I have had great success with the above camera but it has suddenly developed what I think is a sensor problem. The viewfinder displays a badly blurred and distorted picture which is green and purple in colour. The camera will no longer take any still or video pictures. To make matters worse, I recommended this particular camera to my father and his has now developed the same problem. Both cameras are out of guarantee.

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.


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Blurred images My camera takes pictures fine with the flash on. However without the flash it makes a funny almost grinding noise when it takes the picture and then the picture is slightly blurred. What could be causing this and how can I fix it?


This is mainly due to the slow shutter speed selected by your CAM. in low light situations the cam chooses a slow shutter speed to expose the image adequately. Any shakes that may have caused during the shutter operation will cause the funny images. ... Olympus Stylus 760 Digital Camera
