My wife has a nikon d70 with a quantary 28-200 zoom lens. F2.8-F5.6. It takes great picutres during the day. At low light and nightime the longer range pictures will not stay in focus. She set the focus and when she releases the shutter the lens automatically moves back and forth. Only happens at night.
The camera is unable to focus properly in low light at long focal lengths. You might have to throw some light on the subject with a flashlight until the camera locks in the focus or resort to focussing manually. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera
My 55-200 automatic lens will not auto focus on the lower focal lengths, but will on the longer ones. It hasn't been dropped or mishandled and the standard lens works fine. Nikon D40
From the sounds of things it sounds like a part is worn in the lense, my advise is to contact Nikon and send away to be repaired, they have a great service department. I have used them and they are quite inexpensive to. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue. However now it seems that the aperture is stuck, and not enough light gets through to the viewfinder. How can I fix this?
Thanks for the extra info, it's just a question of whether your problem is with the lens or the body.Do you get the same problem with other lenses? If so the body is faulty and if not it's that one particular lens.Aperture con ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
Automatic focus I have a canon 30 D, and use a 1 - 400 lens,canon of course, when I put my canon extender ef 1.4x11 will the camera automatic focus or do I need to do this manuelly?
I still don't have a digital SLR camera, but on the old Cannon film SLRs, the focusing motor is within the lense itself. The extender should have contacts to transmit the signals from the body to the lense. Visually inspect the extender, otherwise yo ... Digital Cameras
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 ...

When I attach my lense the automatic focus will not focus. This is not a problem with my other lens. I have tried changing the settings, taking off lense and putting it back on - nothing seems to work. I can take a picture with it on autofocus but may not be in focus.

Auto focus no longer works. Every time I turn the camera on, I get the ''Please turn camera off and then on again message''. When I do that, it can focus in the default lens position, but as soon as I move the lens, it is not able to focus. Battery is fully charged. All settings were reset to default. Formatted SD, and upgraded to V1.2 software. Still no help.

When I change my focus from manual to automatic the camera doesn't take pictures. It will attempt to focus but then it will focus and it will be blurry and it won't take the picture, then it repeats. But the manual setting works fine :/
Auto mode is the point-and-shoot mode. It is not the camera problem. It is a common problem amongst nikkor kit lenses. Get your lens checked to the dealer, or any Nikon customer care. If its under warranty, it'll be replaced. ... Nikon D3000 Digital Camera
Auto focus I have only had my camera for a short period of time and it worked great when I got it but now I can't focus in a picture. I have messed around with all of the settings but nothing is working. The automatic focus is not working at all. I can't even zoom in or out because the pics are still blurry.
Make sure the macro funcion is off sometimes I forget to turn it off and when I try to take a normal picture it has a bad time focusing. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7 Digital Camera
Camera takes photos without actually "focusing" on the object. Seems their is no "prefocus" with the button. As soon as you touch the focus button, the camera automatically takes the photo. When the camera was working correctly, you'd push the focus button half way down and then it would do it's job. Now it just takes the shot if you barely even touch the button. Not good...........

My camera was working just fine, then the on off switch no longer works. I couldn't power the camera off. The automatic shutoff turned it off, but of course I can no longer turn it on.
Well, obviously the slide switch is no longer making contact inside the camera. There's nothing you can do...this requires a service tech...not necessarily a panasonic tech but a camera service center would do nicely and probably cheaper. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Digital Camera
My Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI will not automatically focus. The little AF points don't show red to signify it is focusing. The camera just takes a blurry picture. It was working perfectly one minute and the next it wasn't. I tried taking the battery out and the points would turn red a few times then they would quit working again. Please give me an idea what might be wrong. Thanks,

Sony DSC-W100 I own a sony dsc w100 and it has been taking great photos. Unfortunatly I switched it on today and it no longer seems to be a ble to focus. I have cleaned the lens and the little circular piece of glass (think this bit measures distance for focus) but my photos are still blurred. The camera seems to permenantly have a little icon saying 'saf' in the bottom left corner of the screen. I wonder if this icon is the key to the problem and what it means? Is it a safe mode and if so how d

I also have the problem of pictures not in focus. I have made a point to lock in first by pushing halfway down before snapping the picture. It's ridiculous that a picture of an inanimate object is not in focus when I'm making a conscious effort to hold my hands steady, lock in the object and then snap, and I'm in the automatic mode. This problem seriously makes me sorry I bought this camera.
Set the camera on a firm surface or a tripod and take a few test shots...are they better? If so, that means that you are moving when pressing the shutter. ... Nikon COOLPIX L100 Digital Camera
I can't get my camera to automatically focus on upclose objects. It always used to work but it now doesn't. A small frame used to come on the screen to give me a chance to auto focus without the zoom.

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?

Focus problems Hello, I just got the new A95 after enjoying the A80 for a few months. I'm experiencing two major problems, occurring especially when shooting in low-light conditions: a. The image displayed on the LCD screen is very dark, while in the A80 it would automatically become lighter after pressing half way. b. The auto focus won't work lower indicator blinks yellow). I have experienced these problems so intensely with my A80. What might be the problem?
There are settings in the menu to turn on the AIAF did you buy it used? maybe the settings need to be reset. If you have the manual there is a sequence you have to do to reset the camera to default settings.\015\012\015\012One thing to note this may ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
I am shooting with a 10mm - 22mm lens - however that should not matter. Frequently my camera cannot find a focal point and therefore i cannot active the shutter release. I am forced to switch to either Manual focus or A (Automatic. I generally have the camera set to either AV or P for standard shooting. I have an EOS Reblel (6.4 pxls) that i've used with the same (10 -22) lens and i have never run into this focusing issue. Also, I am framing pretty standard subjects like doorways etc....N
