I posted this in GD also,

I have a few pics from a trail cam, but the "deer" in the pics are blurry from movement.

Anyone or any way to make them clearer?

they are black and white pics, taken at night time.

Garbage in, Garbage out.

You can't really improve a bad image, you have to take a good image. Improved lighting is a big help. Check to make sure the IR flash is unobstructed. Do you have a way to control when the pic is taken? 10 seconds after detected movement?

New picture editing software coming out will have feature to sharpen pics of this nature according to Kim Kammando show two-three weeks ago. Look on her site. I can't remember which program she was talking about. Photo Shop of Photo Editor maybe.

It has about a 5 to 10 sec delay after movement is detected. Then 15 sec til the next pic unless there is no movement.

Nothing obstructing the IR flash, the pics are great when there is no movement, or when it is in daytime. Just at night and there is movement the pics are blurry.

It is not the best of the trail cams, just wondering about fixin the blurr.

You need to get some focusing fluid and put that on it.


J/K old Photography joke.


Like others stated , not much you can do, but there is software that should help. Might not be cheap or worthwhile.

If you can figure out (reasonably guess) the amount of movement and the direction it is in, Focus Magic can do a pretty good job.

As a real world example, see this thread:
