My shots are blurry
Posted 05 August 2002 - 09:42 PM
Problem: many of my shots turn out fuzzy. I have good bouyance control for the shots...but few are turning out. Additionally, moving subjects creat a significant problem. I have the camera set on autofocus (spot) with the illuminator off. Others with MUCH OLDER 1.3 megapixel camera are getting better images. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Be kind to Honu's!

As for the moving objects causing a few problems, that's always going to be a problem until you get used to following fish etc with the camera even after hitting the shutter to allow for the lag
good luck with th photos!

I am not familiar with that camera, but don't you have some sort of focus confirmation signal? Are you land shots coming out in focus?
If not I would agree that you are probably moving in closer than your focus limit.
The only other thing I could think would be if you are using a dome port without a close-up diopter to correct the curvature of the dome.

I think you've misunderstood my post, I'm not having ANY problems with my focussing! it's all fine for me. it was the other guy who started this thread I was replying to! The minimum focal length for the Olympus camera underwater is about 30 cm, so anything closer will not be in focus, but I've got a macro lense for that kind of thing..
