Olympus SP-550 UZ won't focus properly most of the time. Focus point should be infinity since my subjects are seascapes, sunsets and clouds. I've tried all 3 AF focus modes but none work consistently. I can get it to focus sometimes if point the camera at the ocean first. I've even tried manual focus but it won't focus to infinity. This camera is practically new, has never been dropped. Is this a known problem with this camera? Is it a settings problem (I've reset the camera to factory settings

Hi--I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FP8, which I bought in May 2010. The camera is great for outdoor landscapes, etc. but I've had problems with low lighting and red eye. The camera has trouble focusing on the subjects, and there are often white spots all over the picture (even though I've cleaned the lens and checked to see if there were scratches or dirt on it). In addition to this, I have the red eye setting on, but I still get really awful red eye in all of my pictures. The camera is still new

Focus problem I have had my nikon d-60 for one year. I have always had problems with the focus. At first I thought it was user error but after a few prof. photographers have used it, they have come to the same conclusions. I will want to focus on people and it will focus on the tree behind them. I have tried focus locking on my subject and slightly moving the camera, I have tried not moving the camera focusing the camera, I have tried multiple settings. I have not been able to resolve this on my

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.
I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!

When i turn the camera on, the F (aperature) button blinks, not allowing the camera to focus, even in auto mode. when this happens, i can't even customize my setting on A or S priority. I am frustrated because i can't get my camera to take a picture until the camera decides to focus itself!
This is usually because the lens is not compatible with the camera body. It will work fine with 'M', but light metering, autofocus or distance information are not transferred to the camera.Since I believe you have had this combination for ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens
Focusing problem I have a canon Rebel XTi and in all the autofocus settings the camera won't take a picture, it seems to not be able to focus. When i set the camera into manual focus the focusing ring doesn't move, or seems to be locked. How do i fix this?

I have 2 pentax optio m20 cameras purchased at the same time. Both have developed the same problem: hit the on button and it tries to come on, but makes a funny sound, lens moves in and out trying to focus (screen is lit showing focus changing and green mode icon), then the camera shuts off and never gets into picture taking mode. I fixed one of the cameras once by pushing buttons after connecting and disconnecting from the computer (and the camera worked okay for several months), but repeate

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary object (let's say, a person speaking at a podium a meter or so away) and the video will be in focus. However, even though the person in the video isn't moving except for subtle hand gestures, the camera seems to start to try to focus on something else deeper in the background or closer in the foreg

Autofocus problem I dont really know how to explain my problem.. I got a Nikon D40 for Christmas last year and last week we went on vacation. The camera was working fine. but suddenly the camera wouldn't auto focus. Everything is set on auto.. I only have the lens that came with the camera. The battery is charged.. it doesnt even make a noise like its trying to focus. the wiewfinder bracket thingy lights up red but nothing after that. I am new to photography so I know I probably sound like

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.
You probably got some condensation on the lens from going in and outside. You should be able to go to a Wolf Camera or similar store and have it cleaned. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
When i go to shoot an action photo like something that is moving the camera always delays. i focus on the moving target but when the button is pressed the subject moves out of the view and then the shot is missed. my old olympus stylus from a few years ago used to take great moving shots. i could capture the kids doing just about anything like sports and stuff that you need to have the camera fire right away and not lose the moment because of the delay of the camera shutter. what kind of setting

Focusing problems Hello, I have been trying to take close-up pictures (between 4-12 inches away from subject) but when I press the shutter button halfway, on the screen I see the image come into focus, come out of focus, come into focus,.. on and on for several moments until it settles on the out of focus image. I've tried setting the camera to the macro and super macro settings, and that doesn't help at all. I know it can focus, because I see it on the screen but for some reason it chooses the

Shutter release I just purchased this camera and while I was taking a photo indoors I pressed the upflash button and eversince then every single button I press on the camera (including the off switch) sets off the shutter release. In addition to this problem I can no longer see though the view finder unless I am pressing the shutter release button and then I can momentarily see through the viewfinder. I have noticed that if I press the shutter release button, it does not allow autofocus and it a

Hi i have a canon G9 and all of a sudden it won't turn on. it's not a battery problem since i changed the battery and it still won't turn on. it's dead. doesn't do anything when i press the on/off button. any ideas as what it could be? Same damn problem. I wason the caribbean island of St. John for a wedding and the evening before the wedding, the camera would not come on.

Focus problem My grandson just received a new Nikon camera for Christmas. He assembled the wide angle lens prior to doing any other set up. Now he can't focus it without the wide angle lens in place. The camera has auto-focus. Can you advise a fix? We tried the Reset button on the side ,but this didn't fix it. Thanks
The factory presets would not have been affected by your grandson doing as you describe. Depending on what other lenses he might be trying to use, many have a separate switch located on the barrel of the lens to turn auto focus on or off. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
Camera information I traded for a largan chameleon, not knowing the value of the camera, and I have no instruction manuel or any connection to my computer.

I had my D5000 for a month now, recently i noticed something with my camera. looking though the viewfinder only, whenever i focus (half pressing the shutter button), the view from the viewfinder moves up, and without making the shot and letting go the half-pressed shutter button, the view from the viewfinder then moves down to its original position. These movements are noticeable just through the viewfinder with the VR on. But without the VR, the view from the viewfinder makes no movement. i don

Battery Problem My 18-month-old Canon A70 is giving "change the battery pack" message and turning off constantly, even though I have fully charged three different sets of new rechargeable batteries and rotate them as soon as the message comes on. Sometimes with this message I pull out one charged set and put the same back in, and it works fine for quite awhile, then repeats later. I imagine this is a problem in the camera battery power circuit or something. Never happens when plugged into the co

I have a Olympus X-560WP & when I turned it on, the screen appears with a P in the left corner, a red flash symbol in the right corner & it says on the bottom +1.0 1/30 F3.7.
