    Blurry film camera pictures

    Agreed, I really thought I nailed the focus on all my pictures, that’s why I was disappointed. I spent at least 15-20 sec on each of the pictures I posted above to turn the ring very slowly one way and back to make sure I had the best focus possible. And I’m usually pretty good with manual...

    Blurry film camera pictures

    I just bought a roll of 400 so I’m going to try that over the weekend and have it developed somewhere else. I am pretty sure most of my pictures were taken at 1/125 which should prevent shaking. I’m going to experiment as you said but I’m afraid the lens is just not functioning properly (on my...

    @wfooshee thanks for all the info and great picture of the lightning! It does look like the lab did a pretty bad job at scanning. Fortunately, there is another one close to me who does a pretty good job (but for 2x the price); Do you know any good negative scanner? @jcdeboever thanks for the...

    This is why I suspected the scan initially, but after taking a closer look at the pictures, I'm thinking it's more a focus problem. Because even if the scan is not great, the picture should not appear out of focus, right? I don't have a tripod, unfortunately. I tried the DoF calculator and for...

    @vintagesnaps So for the city I remember shooting with at least f/8 or f/11, so I'm a little surprised the picture does not look more in focus. Most of the pictures I shot were outside or had good lighting conditions, as I wanted to avoid motion blur... I'm thinking that the camera or the lens...

    Blurry film camera pictures

    Hi everyone, Thanks a lot for the replies. Based on what you said, I think I'm probably going to ask another lab to scan my negatives and see how it turns out. @vantagepoint : I'll try and close down a little on aperture, maybe 2.8 instead of f/2 especially when I'm a little further away from...

    Blurry film camera pictures

    Hello everyone, I'm 29 and have been taking pictures (digital) for about 15 years. I recently purchased from eBay a Nikon FE and a Nikon AI 50mm f/2. I just received my scans from my first roll (Kodak GOLD 200) and i'm pretty disappointed in the output. Most of the picture are blurry / out of...
