Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera ?

Blurry pictures I have had this camera for almost a year and the pictures it takes are blurry. It started that they were just blurry if i took pictures at night, like out in a bar and now every picture i take is blurry. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?


Answers :

Check to see what the setting is for Image Size (I have sony cybershot DSC-w50). On the camera itself, it is the button on the bottom. My camera was on the 8"x10" size and I was getting blurry shots (especially with people in them). I switched it to the 4x6 print size and it seems to be much clearer.

Nikon Coolpix L110 - blurry photos/ dying batteries/\012ISO Settings... etc.



I was\012considering getting a new digital camera... but after looking on the internet\012for a solution, I've noticed this is a widespread problem throughout many\012different cameras and brands.
\012\012


\012\012

I was using\012the AA Alkaline batteries but even brand new batteries kept dying on me after\012taking only a few pictures with the Nikon Coolpix L110... so, I bought the\012Energizer NiMH rechargeable batteries with a re-charger. With the new NiMH\012batteries, the dead battery problem was resolved (I haven't recharged the\012batteries since I bought them and have taken about 30 pictures thus far) but\012the downside is... and I'm not sure this has anything to do with the batteries,\012nor am I saying it does,... but my camera is still taking blurry shots.
\012\012


\012\012

I'm\012wondering if there is a difference between the Nikon batteries and other brands...\012such as the Energizer brand that I'm now using.
\012\012


\012\012

I've been\012adjusting the ISO sensitivity/shutter speed, and this helps, but it takes a\012while to adjust it just right as to not get blurred photos which gets annoying\012to me and to the people in my shots, not to mention, I can only take posed\012shots as opposed to taking candid photos.
\012\012


\012\012

When blurred\012photos first began happening I thought it was because I was using the wrong\012batteries (I was using regular AA Alkaline batteries as opposed to using the\012Ni-MH batteries) and the shutter speed problem was due to low/exhausted\012batteries. I bought and am now using the Energizer Ni-MH rechargeable batteries,\012but I'm still having the slow shutter speed problem.
\012\012


\012\012

I reset the\012camera to default settings thinking perhaps I had changed something, but I still\012had the problem. I have made some progress by adjusting the ISO\012sensitivity/shutter speed depending upon the amount of lighting\012(day/night/indoor/outdoor); a highly lit shot requires a lower ISO sensitivity\012setting, while lower lighting requires a higher ISO sensitivity setting.
\012\012


\012\012

But it\012seems that changing the ISO range only works while in Auto scene mode (as\012opposed to sport continuous, smart portrait, portrait, and easy auto mode)\012however I've only played with the settings in low light at night time. I plan\012to try the other scene settings tomorrow... in the daylight, to see if any of\012them work properly and under what ISO setting.
\012\012


\012\012

I'm\012wondering what the connection is... why so many people are having this problem\012with their digital cameras and if there is a link in the type of batteries\012used, settings, etc. I'm just now trying to figure that one out and haven't\012found any useful information on this yet...
\012\012

It seems to\012me that once the camera was set back to default settings, it would be working\012properly.
\012\012


\012\012

I also read\012that the image size has a lot to do with the amount of light needed... so I tried\012each of the image sizes as well as using different ISO and scene settings, but\012there's still no difference; I'm still getting blurred photos.
\012\012

I'm still\012trying to figure out the problem... but as far as batteries go... I do recommend\012getting the NiMH or Lithium as opposed to the alkaline batteries. I'm just not\012sure what brand, and I'm beginning to wonder if I should have bought the\012Coolpix NiMH batteries.
\012\012


\012\012

Any knowledge\012on the subject or advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!
