All the pictures are blurry the auto focus isn't working


You may have put the camera on manual focus. Two ways to do that.
1. There is a switch on the lens which allows you to select auto or manual focus. Be sure the switch is set on A or A/M. If it's on M, you are on manual focus.

2. In you menus, there might be a mode which is manual focus. Look in your manual index under Focus, manual. There might be a setting in the Focus Mode menu.

You can also try resetting your camera. This will put most things back to factory default mode, including the focus mode.

When playing around with controls, go step by step through the manual and try things out. Be sure to set the control you were playing with back to default unless you really understand that setting.

The manual focus ring on my camera doesn't work. The ring turns but does not seem to adjust the focus. Automated focusing still works. How to fix it?


Two methods:-

1. Use the slider switch on the left of the camera to set it to MF (manual focus). The focus ring is an electronic one rather than a physical control like the zoom ring, so the response can seem slow.

2 Go into the camera menu and enable DMF (Direct Manual Focus). This allows you to override the autofocus simply by adjusting the focus control, but it does not work if the slider switch is set to the AF C setting (continuous autofocus), it only work in the AF-S (AF only activates once when the shutter is half pressed).

I have a Nikon D40x digital camera. The problem began when the screen began showing some type of diagram over the picture I had just taken. The camera then started having difficulty with auto focus. ...


Seems possible that the servo control /main processor control is faulty and will need help from Nikon service , It will be better to get a evaluation for the fault and so we can have a consenses on the fault.
get estimate and decide.

How do I get a nikon d80 to use a manual lens


If you mean a manual-focus lens, just focus the lens using the focus ring on it.

If you mean a non-electronic lens, then you need to set the camera to Manual exposure mode. Control the shutter speed by turning the command dial. Control the aperture by turning the aperture ring on the lens. You will get no metering assistance from the camera: you can use another light meter (this includes using a different lens on your camera just to get an exposure reading) or just take pictures and look at the results on the LCD.

Manual focus points 40D


Try checking C.Fn III, 3: AF point selection method. Yours might still be on option 2.

0: Normal - Works by pressing the AF Point button and then the Multi-controller.

1: Multi-controller direct - Press the multi-controller to directly select an AF point (without first having to press the AF Point button). Pressing the AF button reinstates all AF points for auto AF point selection.

2: Quick Control Dial direct - turn the Quick Control Dial to select AF points. In this mode, AF points will not be displayed on the LCD panel.

Lens


If this is a manual focus lens, you will need to do two things (and an optional third thing.)

1) On the side of the camera, you have to switch the focus mode switch from "AF" (Autofocus) to "MF" (Manual focus) . . . Yeah. I know, you probably already did that. <grin>

2) When you press Menu, go to the Custom Setting and change the Allow aperture setting to on, so that the Pentax K100D will then work with manual control of the aperture ring. You need to do this or the K100D will not work with manual exposure lenses (M lenses) or even autoexposure lenses (KA, KA2, FA, etc.) when you move the aperture ring from the "A" position to one of the manual aperture settings!

3) This is optional, but in the Custom Setting you can also turn on the Fl in manual focus mode, so that even though you don't have autofocus capability, you will get a beep indicator when you have successfully managed to manually focus your lens.

I have a few nice manual focus lenses that I have a lot of fun playing with on my K100D.

Take care & Happing Imaging!

Focus Problem


Low light focus lock can be a problem with this camera. But in normal or bright light there should be no problem with auto focus lock. If this is a new problem, you should check to see if a setting has been changed. With so many options, it is easy to accidently set something that causes unusual results (been there, done that). First ... Go to the Setup Menu and see that the "All Reset" option is selected. This will cause everything to be reset to factory default each time you power-on the camera. Turn the camera off and then turn the camera on. Then take some test photos to see if your auto-focus-lock is improved. If that works, there is no need to check the items below. If that does not work, here are some control changes to try. Remember if you turn off the camera everything gets reset. That camera uses contrast detection for auto focus and it is normally set to "Multi-Area Auto Focus". Try changing it to "Spot Auto Focus" and do some tests, including with the camera set to one of the programs or manual mode. There is another setting called "Autofocus Area", you should investigate. Check your manual to determine what you can do with this control. There is another control called something like "continuous auto focus". Check the manual for further information. If none of the above help, it is time to see about some camera repairs.
