Question

Why do moving videos go out of focus so easily?

My Coolpix S8200 has mostly been easy to use, and has mostly produced great still frames. However, I have been nothing but disappointed with the moving videos that this camera produces. I keep the video resolution set to the highest resolution of HD Widescreen available, and before hitting the record button, I try to set up the still frame settings for the scene I intend to capture. I even go as far as taking one or two still frames to make sure the settings are correct. However, when I press the record button after that, the video immediately goes out of focus in about 50 percent of the cases. Is there something wrong with my focus drive mechanism, or the algorithm used to control it? I was hoping there would be a firmware update to address this problem, but this S8200 model has no firmware updates available.

The reason to use AF-S (single point) is to prevent the camera from focusing on objects behind what you want to video. While point and shoot cameras can take quality photos they do lack in video mode. They have small sensors and generally autofocus is a little sluggish, and the S8200 is not noted for fast auto focus.

To JoeR:

The information in those pages is interesting ... but not very useful.

Those pages spell out situations that the autofocus algorithm has trouble handling, but do not say what to do about it, except in the case of still photos (focus lock, which I already knew about).

Are they (or you) implying that when AF-S mode is selected for video recording (page 59), pressing the shutter button halfway down will cause the camera to refocus on the fly during *video* recording? If so, they should state that explicitly.

In the meantime, I'll experiment to see if that approach works, and see how it compares with AF-F mode, which is probably what I really want anyway.

One big difference is the 8200 has VR in the lens and the 9100 has it on the sensor. This lets the 8200 use VR in movie mode.

The cameras are in the local site from here but I don't find them in registered resellers by site. I have visited several shops and unfortunately I can't find them to buy even in Duty Free. Now we're starting to find the Coolpix S6200 and support here reported that only began to receive in June.
Suggestion: create a specialized shop for selling Nikon here in Brazil-São Paulo, because here we find only Sony for everything is place.

Hi
If you move the camera, or if the subject moves in low light you will get blurrrr...
try photos where there is no movement and see if they are crisp and clear,
you can sit camera on something and set self timer so you do not touch the camera at all and see if subject is clear n crisp, ...
if blurry after holding camera still and or the subject not moving, then I would say you have a problem with the camera, at that point contact "Service and Support" in the above main menu bar...

It means that the ambient temperature is not suited to charging. Charge the
battery indoors with an ambient temperature of 5 °C to 35 °C
(41 °F to 95 °F).
Or the USB cable or Charging AC Adapter is not properly
connected, or there is a problem with the battery. Disconnect the
USB cable or unplug the Charging AC Adapter and correctly
connect it again, or Purchase a New Battery.

Why do my pictures keep coming up blurry?

I have taken pictures on all settings, including auto focus and find that at least 1/3 of my photos come out blurry. I thought this camera was supposed to be easy to use! Product came w/a "quick start guide" not a manual, so no trouble shooting info on what to do. This has been very disappointing!

All digital cameras must be taken with a half press on the shutter to quick focus before taking a photo. Don't simply press the shutter button fast or it will not focus right before taking a photo. Common pittfalls here. Hope this helps.
