Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera ?

Canon Ixus 75 Auto Focus fails. It appears to be trying to focus and the small box appears on the screen showing where it it trying to focus. I think it's always focussing very close up. Macro is not set. Thanks for any help.


Answers :

This usually happens when there's not enough contrast between the subject and the background or the subject itself is too 'flat'.

Also if there's not enough light in 'flash off'-mode you cannot focus. Try using the focusing assist light.

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

Hello. I bought my Powershot SX1 IS in April 2010, and have never felt I could get good photos with it. The 'noise' seems bad, when I playback and zoom in just one notch, definately worse, the more I zoom. The color is often poor, and the focus on close-ups is not sharp. Would you say this is the best this camera can do, or would you say there is something wrong with this particular one. (I always have it set at highest resolution , often 100 ISO, try the set of three exposures to get diffe

Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar?

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 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.

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?

I just found my husbands old Minolta maxxum 5 AF Zoom lens camera. I don't know how to zoom in.

It's not the fault of the camera itself, it's a lens issue. Zoom lenses can only get so close before the min focus is obtained. Unless you have a macro lens (not suited for portraits, which can focus down to mere inches. Most zooms aren't really desi ... Digital Cameras

We adjusted the settings to fast shutter speeds and now get a "systen error - focus" and cannot take pictures and the motor is not pulling the lense back in when we switch it off. We can hear the motor turning but it does not appear to work. Also the front protection shutter does not close properly.

My Canon 28-135mm IS lens seems to have broken internally. If I try to turn the lens (as in, to manually focus it), it jams before setting to the largest aperture. Moreover, there appears to be a metal object-- a hinge, perhaps?-- stuck inside of it. What do I do?


This lens is a very popular focal length and still a "current" lens it's worth getting an estimate from a repair facility. It sounds as if the aperture blades have come apart, possible just worn out but I find that hard to believe after the more then ... Digital Cameras

I have a Canon zoom lens EF-5 18-55mm for my Canon EOS 450D. I am having trouble with my AF. If I set it on AF it will not focus automatically, but if I manually turn the lens for a close up it will then take the picture. Then and only then will the AF for long distance shot come into operation! After taking that shot it reverts back to not focussing. What can I do, if anything, to rectify this malfunction?
