Having problems with your Canon EOS-20D Body only Digital Camera ?
Images are blurry through my view finder, my mirror, lense and view window are clean. whats going on?
There is a small knob or lever to adjust the viewfinder lens dioptric focus to suit your eye. It probably got turned by mistake to a setting unsuitable for your vision. If you wear contacts make sure you have them on before you do the adjustment. Glasses usually block the view but it is up to you whether you wish to make the viewfinder adjustment with them on or off. See page 38 here:

My wife has a Canon 60D DSLR camera. When she looks through the view finder, it looks like the lens has a speck of dust on it as she can see it in the viewfinder. She has swapped lenses and the spec is still there. She used the auto clean function for the sensor, but the spec hasn't moved, This is almost a brand new camera. Should we clean the sensor by hand? If so, how do you do it?
Take a couple of pictures, over a dark background, if you can see the spec of dust on them, the problem might be in the mirror. Now, if the dust does not appear on the pictures, it's either on the viewfinder, or somewhere else out of the way of the s ... Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera

I have a Caonon 40D. I thought I was having a lens problem at first. However after using 2 other lenses I have found out it is my Camera. No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

When I turn the camera on and look into the view finder the sceen is wavy and does not show the images I want to record. The tape is VHS and appears to be moving but is not recording any images. The battery is new and is charged. I have tired to use the focus ring on the view finder but that does not make the wavy pattern go away or help focus on images.

Lumix DMC-FZ7 While keeping my camera out of view on the floor of my car on the drivers side I failed to remember it was there and moved the electric seat forward and heard this CRUNCH !

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

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.

Corrupted Pictures? There are times when I'll take a "long" photo (1200X1600 dimensions). The camera will take the picture. I will be able to view it on the camera.

However, when I double click the thumbnail to view the full image the picture won't open. I've noticed this only happening on "long" photos. I've often t
