Hello,

Thank you for posting a photo showing the problem you are having.

If you take your camera into a dimly lit room and press the shutter button half way down you should see a light emit from the camera and lightup the surface area in front of you. Your lens ring will move right and left to set the focus. If you see no light emitted or your lens ring does not move or sounds unusual, you are having an AutoFocus issue. If you turn AutoFocus off and focus manually and the picture comes out just as bad if may be the digital stabilizer or is definetly the chip used to capture the image in the camera that is bad.

When you have AutoFocus on and Digital Stabilization on and Auto WhiteBalance on, which I'm sure you do, then according to Canon your camera's issue cannot be resolved without repair service.

To request repair service from the company via an online form go to this page.

If you want to find a repair location and feel you are probably near one, go to this location online.

If you would rather talk this over with someone over the phone call Canon's technical support team at 1-800-OK-CANON

If you have purchased your camera within the last 30 days, and have a receipt, go to the location you purchased this camera from and request a replacement.

Sorry we can't be of further assistance than this. I hope you find this information Helpful or has fixed your dilemma and has put you on your way to getting it repaired or replaced.

Hi. I have had a Samsung S1050 camera for just under 3 years, and have had satisfaction in using the camera and with the picture quality for most of that time, however just within the last few weeks, the quality of photographs taken has gone rapidly downhill, with white-out when using the flash and poor light levels, and when zooming in on any picture that has recently been taken, there are noticeable horizontal lines across it through the entire photo, much like an old 70's tv.

Poor focus I am using the Nikon d80 with a Sigma 24-70 mm lens. I am not satisfied with the crispness of the photos. I have tried shutter speeds of 1/500 and higher, using a tripod, and using shutter delay to get better clarity and sharp focus, but none has worked. The quality is not as good as my 2 meg Sony! Is this to be expected from the 10 meg cameras? thanks! [email protected]
