The night setting results in blurry pictures

\015 1. The night setting results in blurry pictures. The auto setting results in grainy pictures.\015

Answers :

The grain is from underxexposure and the blur is from hand shake caused by low shutter speed. Try using a tripod. Also, change from auto settings and shoot in manual mode with a high ISO and low aperture setting. Good luck!
Night setting produces quite long shutter times which means it is very difficult to get a sharp photo without using a tripod or keeping the camera dead still.

The auto setting will be setting the ISO up high, which does result in more grainier images, however, it also makes the sensor more sensitive to light, and hence result in a faster shutter speed, which does reduce blur, but the down side is grainier images.

It all sounds quite normal to me.

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

Adobe photoshop might help. ... Casio Exilim EX-S600 Digital Camera

I was at a basketball game last night and taking pictures with the d80 and the 55-200 lens. All of the pictures I took in auto focus were blurry. I changed it to the S mode with shutter speed at 4000 and those pictures came out completely dark with nothing in the picture. I changed the setting to the sports mode and the shutter speed is not fast enough because I have the same issue with blurring or out of focus.

I have a digital canon rebel xt with several lenses. I just purchase a tamron 70-200 1:2.8 lens and want to know the correct setting to take footbal pictures at night from the sidelines. I get perfect daytime photos but still blurry at night HELP

An f2.8 lens is pretty good lens speed, which means that the size opening the lens can make to let light thru it. Try this out:\012Set you camera to at least ASA 1000 sensitivity then set your camera to 'A' or Aperature mode. Walk down to the ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

You probably got some condensation on the lens from going in and outside. You should be able to go to a Wolf Camera or similar store and have it cleaned. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Blurry pictures I've had this camera for almost a year and everytime I want good pictures (vacation, birthdays, xmas) I'm disappointed with the quality of my pictures.

What settings should I use for my Nikon d60 with a 70-300mm lens to take picures of a night time football game? When the sun goes down, my camera slows and the pictures get blurry.

All indoor pictures look grainy or blurry. There are a lot of noise in my photos, and it really seems to have difficulty capturing moving people as the intelligent auto often chooses the night portrait scene for indoor people shots. In the manual it recommends using a tripod and having the subject stand still. I am trying to photograph active toddlers (18 months and 3 years old). I have found switching to sports helps sometimes.
