Re: Is the focus area switchable?

The focus area can be set for Wide Focus Area, or Spot Focus Point. When using the Spot Focus Point, the DiMAGE 7i offers "Flex Focus Point (FFP) " for controlling the position of the Spot Focus Point. This is a powerful tool for off-center subjects.

Digital camera won't focus


I see your camera has a focus area. If you have a subject with enough contrasting parts in this area, the focusing should work fine.
You must know that not every subject can be focused on as quick or as good as you would like. If there are little contrasting lines in the subject, or when it is getting dark or there are dark and light parts in the focus area, that don't belong together, every camera can have problems to focus correct. Changing the ISO settings won't change anything for the auto focus.
But special when you try to shoot in almost dark places, you camera will have lots of work to focus and in most cases it won't work at all.

You could try to place an object with light and dark lines, on the same distance as the object you want to picture. Then by pressing the shutter half, when focusing on the object with much contrast, you can look if the camera can focus. If it is in focus, keep the shutter pressed half way down, while moving to the object you want to shoot a picture of. Once you have every thing in the frame as you want it, press the shutter complete.

When switching on camera. pictures turn pink. why


ia mode or not?

is it out of warranty? I noticed that the manual was from 2005.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMWAC5.PDF

The manual doesn't mention any pink area of focus.

I do not know why the area in focus is pink. That's the first time I heard someone complain about that on any digital camera.

Good luck on this repair.

Wrong icon when selecting dynamic area


The D40 Dynamic area focus starts on the centre AF area then moves the focus to follow the subject.
The camera has followed something to the right and selected the right focus area.
This is normal.

You could select Single Area in the menu and move the area back to the middle using the rear AF Sensor Selector.

Pictures are blur


Hi,

Your pictures are blurry because the camera did not focus properly on the subject.

First, turn on the camera in any picture taking mode (or video mode), then look at the screen or viewfinder. There should be four white corners in the center of the camera display. This is your targeting area.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Aim the camera at your subject so this center area is directly on it.

2. Press the shutter button lightly, not all the way down. Wait for a second or two WITHOUT RELEASING YOUR FINGER. If the white corners turn green, keep the finger on the button and press it all the way.

(Once the screen flashes black, a picture is taken and you can release the finger).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the targeting area turns red and blinks, then the camera has not focused. You can to try to focus again by following step 1 and 2. If a picture is taken when the targeting area is red, then the picture will be blurry.

If there is no targeting area, then you can still focus by aiming the camera at your subject. Now follow step 2. A green box will appear on the subject, then a sharp picture can be taken.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The red arrow that flashes means that the pictures or videos are being written onto the memory card.

Also, try to be steady when taking pictures, because slight hand movement can cause blurry images too.

Page 25 in the DMC-FZ7's english manual will also explain how to focus.

Flashing red square area in viewfinder.


No, I don't think so, there could be differences between the Auto and the P setting. But the red flashing is where your camera is currently focusing on. It's possible that the black was indicating the focus box, but it was not latched on to something with complete focus, which then is indicated by the red flashing. Check this link to read up further on this. I may not have pinpointed it exactly, because I have a D70s, but that's what I found so far. You'll maybe have to reset everything and see if it's still there, otherwise, it's a setting. =)

Focus malfunction


THere is a little switch on the back of the camera, just under the area selection Dpad. Make sure it is not in the 'L' setting. This locks the selected autofocus area.
