Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera ?

The focus on my cannon powershot A540

\015 The focus is not clear at all especially when I zoom in.\015

Answers :

Do you focus and then push the shutter button half way down to lock in that focus? Then all the way to take the picture?
\015\012
\015\012Do you support the camera on a tripod or kneel down and support your arms on one knee or lean against some object to keep the camera steady> You can even press your arms tightly against your body before you focus and shoot. And be sure to press the shutter button very gently when you shoot so the camera will not shake or move.

\015\012Do you have the camera on the right mode for the photo you are attempting to take? Such as night/macro/action/ etc. Try taking photos on just the automatic mode to see if you can get focused shots. Make absolutely sure your camera is not in Macro mode ( a picture of a little flower on the screen) unless you are doing extreme closeup shooting.
\015\012
\015\012Go to your menu>then setting> then set your camera back to default settings if you can. Or if you are unsure how the camera is set. If you do not have your manual you can go to the Canon website at www.canon.com and click on support or downloads and find the manual for your camera and download it. That may give you the answer you need as well.

I have a Canon 20D camera that I use with two lenses. The lens that I have most of my problems with is the 28-70 f2.8 red ring lens. When focusing It always seems to focus on what is behind the subject. No matter how much I concentrate on the focusing sensor to focus on the subject -AND it looks like it focuses on the subject-UNITL I load my photos and look at them in disgust that it focused behind it!! What is going on?? I use the same lens on my friend's cannon 5D and NEVER have this problem.

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem. Any suggestions


You still have a bad lens the internal focus gear is out of alignment. or is offset. a repaired or new lens is required. Sorry :( ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
