I agree with Everyone here. This image is just too badly blurred. I have tried everything to prove them wrong but I can’t.
It was a lot of work to get the attached image and is really not that much of an improvement. A reshoot is the only answer. (and a new photographer. The camera is Not the problem)
It doesnt look like a shutter problem to me, it looks like the focussing is just way off, I cant imagine what shutter problems would cause that kind of blurring - theres no trail or shake on the foreground, it just looks like the focal point is wrong. It appears to be on the window/metal strut rather than on the girls. If he was using auto-focus that might explain some of the problem, autofocus is very difficult dark settings. It does seem more like the photographer is at fault, rather than the camera.
As to only taking 1 camera to a shoot. Somewhere like a nightclub, I definately wouldnt want to be lugging around multiple cameras and lenses, nor risk getting all my kit trashed.
When I shoot gigs I take my lightest, cheapest camera unless the venue has specific press passes and photo areas.
it can be possible, but is it worth ?
of course, it is possible to refocus the defocused (blurred) photo.
Such computations are realized for scientific, military and criminological purposes.
Algorithms are not simply. They are very time- and memory-absorbing, with high CPU
Better results are possible on B&W pictures than on color versions (problem of color shifts,
color spots introduced by noise , "ringing effect" introduced by edges etc).
As example we can see result of one run in Gimp of plugin "Iterative Refocus"
Filters -> Enhance -> Iterative Refocus
the results can be better, if we are able to find/guess a blur radius of blurred feature.
In attached example I used mentioned filter with settings : blur - 5,20 px,
iterations - 100 and smoothness 80.
Result is not miracle but first step in right direction, I think.
Of course, better results are on architecture or documents' photos than on portraits,
and the next question is to implement proper techniques to process to improve refocused pictures.
yeah, that is not a shutter issue, that is focus problems...i think your photographer should second guess his profession...for starters to send files to you that he knows were problematic, is wrong and unprofessional, second...he lied, he blamed it on a camera problem, when it is pretty evident that its user error.
People and their digital cameras today...everyone is a pro photographer. this looks like a case of the photgrapher thinking the camera does all the work so why should he worry....shoot him and hire a new one....pictures are gone
