Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Blurred pictures on action shots

\015 I have an EOS 350D that I use with a 75-300mm lens for my kids sports. For the last two years I have had no problem getting fairly crisp and clear action shots. About three weeks ago however, all the action shots started to come up blurry and out of focus. Still shots are fine but anything moving is a problem. Its possible that my wife or kids inadvertently changed a setting but I can't figure out the problem or how to fix it. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.\015

Answers :

For daytime, make sure the ISO is kept low, say 100, or 200 if a little dull. For nighttime or indoor, you may need to increase the ISO up to the max of 1600.
\015\012Check also the AV+/- setting isn't set too high - are the shots brighter than normal? If so, hold the AV+/- button and use the scroll wheel to bring the setting back down.
\015\012One other thing to check is your CF card - have you changed cards recently? I have two 2Gb UltraII cards from Sandisk - one is really fast, about 1-2 pictures per second, the other is really slow, about 3-4 seconds per picture. They should be the same but are not.
\015\012Also try shooting in AV mode to keep the lens wide open and get the fastest shot possible.
\015\012Hope this helps!

All action shots with S5000 are a complete blur...


I have the S5000 and have found that the shutter lag does present some problem with action shots. You do have to focus on the subject, & then hit the shutter just as it comes into the frame. As to the blur, have you tried shutter priority? I recently ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

Blurry pictures My camera has two settings on the front. One is to take still pictures, such as flowers, the other setting is for action shots. My camera will not switch back to the action setting. There is a switch on the front of the camera. I have switched it to the right position, and it won't work. I have also taken the batteries out of the camera and switched it again. No dice. This sucks because I am missing a lot of good pictures of my kids. please help.

Blurred edges My Canon Rebel XTi took awesome photos when I first bought it. I let a family member use it and I think the settings must have been changed or something, because now all my photos are blurred on the edges, esp. on the left side of the photo. I always use AF and the blurring occurs no matter what ISO I use. Also, my action shots used to be crisp and clear with no blurring whatsoever. Now they are blurred, doesn't matter if it's night or daylight and no matter what ISO. Is there

Shutter Speed Why is it that when I take a picture, if Im shaking or shivering just a bit, the picture comes out really blurred. Even when I change the shutter speed to 1/2000, the picture takes forever to snap. I think the shutter speed is so slow. I cant take ant action pictures without the person looking deformed... HELP!!

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

I've owned my Sony DSC-T100 for a couple of years now. I really have enjoyed the camera but off and on it starts to vibrate, it has a humming sound as well. the pictures comes out fuzzy and blurred. Doesn't do this all the time but seems to get worse over the course of time when I use it more frequently. used to get better after I would take one picture, then it would settle down and do one ok shot, the next one vibrates, next one ok. Right now no vibration. What is going on?

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.
