Blurred images with canon 55-250 IS - suggest remedy

Hello,

I use a canon 55-250 Is lens but when i zoom it to the full extent, the result is a blurry image. Though I do not shake the camera at all or at times use a tripod, still the result is blurry. I shoot in M mode with canon 1100. Please suggest which mode/setting should I use while shooting distant objects.

If it properly focus Image will good. You can try auto-focus and see how results.

Is the WHOLE image blurry/out of focus? Or just parts of it? And, if it's just parts it could be that the glass elements are out of alignment . . . ? And, I'm assuming that your lens is clean . . . any filter on it, clean . . . ?

The most common cause of blurry image at long focal length is slow shutter speed. At 250 mm for hand holding shutter speed should be 400 or higher keeping in consideration the crop factor of your body. Mind you that is ONLY one possible cause.... Many other factors may contribute as well including the ones mentioned above

Please try to click in A (Auto) and P (Program) mode.

If you are getting blurry picture even after that then you need to get the lens checked for correctness of its alignment.

1. If you're shooting in Manual mode, IS will not support that. Shoot (canon equiv of) Priority / Auto modes to get the benefit.

2. The IS should be turned off if you're using a tripod otherwise you'll get a blurred image. That's the instruction for Nikon VR lenses. I assume canon IS can also be turned off similarly.

Was always thinking IS is a lens feature and has nothing to do with Shooting Modes. Are you sure?

IS (Image Stabilization) is an optical or digital system built in to a lens for removing or reducing camera movement. It is most effective with telephoto or telephoto zoom lenses.

Images get blurred if the camera shakes even due to movement in lens.

IS / VR as in canon /nikon is implemented in individual lenses. Whereas Olympus or Sony uses in body stabilization which lends stability to any lens you use.
Anyway it works in a way that while on tripod or at shutter higher speed like more than 500, which various lens to lens, IS should be disengaged.

Apparently not.
