Having problems with your Vivitar ViviCam 5386 Digital Camera ?

Blurred pictures When taking pictures in optical zoom, all pictures come out blurry. Can you suggest any resolutions to this problem?



Answers :

If you are at maximum zoom ther likelyhood is that the shutter speed it long and you have camera shape coming in with will be amplified at high magnification.
Try shorter Zoom and non zoom pix they are Ok - then it is the camera shake thing.
A Tripod or a place to hold the camera steady is the remedy.

Blurry pictures Hello: Wondering if anyone has any problems with taking blurry pictures. It doesn't matter what I do, i.e., adjust the setting, exposure, etc., 9 out of 10 pictures come out all blurry. Is it just not a good camera, or is there any other suggestions from people out there that may be of help to me. Thank you for all that respond.


YES to the lens focus ring ... check it often.\015\012Also, low light is a no-no unless close up with the flash (like 10 ft. max). Try test photos on the tripod with focus ring set to the little mountain outside to verify camers is OK.\0 ... Jazz DV-179 Digital Camera

Hello! I actually have a TZ3 and have been having problems with the quality of the pictures without using the zoom (grainy) as well as problems with the quality of the picture when using the zoom (blurry). the camera is 3 & 1/2 years old and i am not sure what the problem is. can someone make some suggestions? thanks! jennifer


Hello, yes a few suggestions "grainy" could be from an auto ISO setting the sensor speed high as in possibly ISO 400 even 800 or higher you get the pictures but it's grainy. On pocket point and shooters this is most often the case in full automatic m ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera

Even I'm facing the same problem "I have a Nikon Coolpix s70 camera that I just recently received for Christmas. I cannot seem to figure out the best setting to put it on to take good pictures. They come out blurry and somewhat grainy. Any suggestions?" Can i know the reason for that and evn when i set to "auto" they come out very blurry and grainy. So I need a clear cut solution for this problem.


First of all i wanna ask one question, does your camera fell from your hand? usually this comes when your optical zoom motor is not responding to signals receiving from cameras processor. better service it with nearest service centre. ... Nikon COOLPIX S70 Digital Camera

I love my Canon S5is...however, whenever I send my digital pictures online to be developed they always turn out fuzzy or blurry. When I upload the pictures to the site, it says the resolution is not suitable for any of the sizes I choose to print (4x6 or 5x7). I purchased my camera on amazon.com and it did not come with a manual in English (only in Spanish). Can you help me with this problem? Thanks, Sonya

My IXUS V2 has suddenly developed a serious fault. When I switch on, the digital display shows a confusing array of lines and colours, with the actual picture barely discernable. If I take a picture, it comes out as a confused image of colours and lines. The view through the optical viewfinder is fine so I imagine I have a serious electronic problem. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

My zoom feature on my Sony cyber shot DSC-T10 is stuck on blurry.(The W T button in the upper right hand corner of the camera.)  It won't zoom in and focus so I can take a picture.  I have had the camera for a couple years with no problems. Any suggestions as I have misplaced the book that came with this camera?


I would slap the camera face down in the palm of my hand and see if the lense becomes unstuck. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

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

My pictures are very blurry.. We have reset to the default settings but the pictures are still coming out blurry... This was not a problem before as we have had clear pictures. What do you think the problem is and/or how do you fix it? Thank you.


The auto-focus might be bad. Set to manual focus and see if that works. If not, then the focus motor is slipping or the motor itself is bad and cannot focus the lens properly. ... Polaroid i835 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

Canon sd900 I seldom use my canon sd900 and I usually take pictures without using the flash. But I recently noticed that my hands should be very very steady, just a slight movement will cause the picture to be blurry or unclear. I usually don?t use the flash because it gives a darker background with your face too white from the flash. And my problem arises when I would request other people to take my picture because 90% don?t have a steady hand thus giving me a blurry picture.


Try a higher ISO speed (suggest 400). Look in your camera's instruction book to find out how to do this. ... Digital Cameras

My daughter have the Viv itar Vivicam 8690 camera and the both are have the problem that when they take a picture with any movement, like a car going by, the picture is blurry. Even the slightest move causes the picture to be blurry. What do they need to do to get a clear picture?


Welcome to the world of digital photography. the problem with a digital camera is that it takes time for the sensor to adjust to movement in what you are trying to take a picture of. the camera has to be very still at least in my experience. the h ... Digital Cameras

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose

Viewfinder/lens problems hey there, i have a canon powershot a430, and am having a ton of battery problems as well as this strange problem with the viewfinder + lens. i'm going to try out the suggestions i've found here to see about the battery issues, but i havent found anyone yet with a similar viewfinder/lens problem. this is what happens: when i try taking pictures from the viewfinder (having turned the screen off to save on batteries), the picture that ends up being taken isn't what i was s

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is.... I'm taking pictures at my sons wrestling events and I can't get it to take clear pictures. If i put it on sports it's one of the worst with blurriness. I don't know a good setting for this? The next problem I'm having at the same events is red eye and or white eye. I know how to change the red eye option however it doesn't stop it from happening and even if I


I imagine your son's wrestling events are held in school gyms with lighting that is less than ideal. If you are taking pictures without a flash then the blurriness you describe could well be due to a slow shutter speed. Your camera is using a slowe ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However, now when I take pictures the images seem to have horizonal lines through them if I don't use the flash. Also, if I am taking a picture outside or in a lot of light, the image ends up being extremely light. Have any suggestions?


Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about i ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

Blurry viewfinder While the viewfinder has always been a little blurry, I've had a recent problem with it being so blurry you couldn't even use it take a picture. Then after swtiching to the LCD viewfinder to shoot from, I see a large yellowish black line on the left side of it, doesn't seem to affect the pictures as I can view them afterwards ....am I going to have a major repair>


As mentioned, might be a defective CCD imager. You may be in luck. Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. Please check the following two links for more info:\015\012http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/ca ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Blurry pics The last time I used this camera, most of the pictures came out very blurry. I had to try to hold the camera completely still to keep them reasonably clear. These were just pictures of people, no sports, etc. It was on the usual auto setting. Even the ones that weren't too blurry were very grainy. It has worked fine in the past and I have never dropped it or gotten it more than rained-on wet. What could be the problem?


Go into the setup menu and scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. Sometimes that will restore your camera to original specs. ... Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera

Blurry Pictures I have a Fuji Finepix A120 that's about 4 years old. The last 2 years pictures are ALWAYS blurry, I have no idea how to fix it, I change batteries often but it never fixes the problem. Besides that, it has never been able to take more than 6 pictures. I hate this camera!!!! Yvette


The only thing i can say is try changinf settings when taking pictures. ... Fuji FinePix A120 Digital Camera

DSC-T7 Blurriness Last week I purchased a DSC-T7 and I am having several problems with picture quality. Mainly, any white or light object in the picture (whether it be a t-shirt or a blanket etc.) has a extremely blurry edge, almost like a halo. Other areas of the picture then would be rather dark. I don't think it is an autofocus issue. I have set the EV to -1.0, the WB to Auto, the contrast, sharpness, and I everything else to normal. Can the camera be adjusted to fix this? thanks


Try this test:\015\012Mount the camera on a tripod or set it on a secure base and use the self timer to trip the shutter. Doing this will totally eliminate any possibility of camera shake causing blurriness.\015\012\015\012If the picture is still blu ... Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera

How do I fix this problem?? HELP


Although your eyes can adapt to see well in low light, the camera needs a lot more light to take good photos than your eye needs to see in low light. Taking photos of a play or other indoor performance is a very difficult situation. 1) ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
