Blurred Photo's

  Umbrella 19:45 04 Apr 2004

After taking photo's with my digital camera they have come out blurred.
I have tried a number of pc photo editors but cannot get a clear picture with any of them.
Can anybody advise please.

Try taking the pics at a higher resolution / without the digital zoom on and see what happens.

Is the lens clean?
Camera shake? Try taking a few shots with the camera fixed or resting a table say.
Have they been taken on a high zoom setting?

shaky hands cause this.there is only so much software can correct.

try taking shots looking through the view finder instead of using the lcd screen.

brace the camera against your head.

condensation on the lens maybe?

There is nothing that can be done. Sahrpening programme tend not to be very successful and are only useful woth SLIGHT blur. Have you tried using the camera on a tripod or self-timer to ensure that it is not at fault rather than human error?

Just a suggestion - have you got the camera set on 'close-up' (usually shows an icon of a little flower on the lcd screen) I shot a dozen or so pics before noticing this on my camera...

paranomia is right. I was looking for software that could correct it rather than myself with the camera.

Try running the pics through this nice little prog, Kneson Imagener click here it is a good enlarger and you might find you can enhance some of the details too.

You don`t say what your camera is, but it sounds to me that if ALL pictures are blurred then something is wrong. The two most likely things are;

1) you may jerk the camera when taking the shots. To determine this, try taking a shot with the camera on a tripod, or some firm support, with minimum zoom, and use autotimer.

2) the auto-focusing may be faulty.

True, lens condensation could cause this, but to have condensation of all your shots is unlikely. Of course, look at the lens and ensure it is clean.

In the meantime have a look at Focus magic.
