    You may find that you can brighten the AF points in the Custom Functions

    Have you tried reseting the camera to factory defaults?


    a continuous beep should confirm the camera's continual focus, is there no audible beep.

    if resetting does not help then i think you will have to go for a warranty claim...

    thank you

    AF points are arrayed in a diamond pattern, which Canon says helps improve subject tracking

    With everything set, now half-press the shutter and the Rebel XTi tells you which AF points it's selected. If you don't like the selection, you can
    press again, and it will very often choose another set of points.

My Cannon Rebel XSi when pictures are taken are blurry


Try using manual focus. Make sure your auto focus points are correctly set. Look for button that looks like matrix. Press it then use/press joy stick type button to select auto focus point.

I can't find object in dark. Though the camera should identify (may be red ray focus) the object to take snap. In manually I set up all the possible way but in vain. Could you pls. give me a set up...


Yes, the camera does attempt to illuminate the area to allow autofocus, but the darker it is, the harder it is for autofocus to work. This is a problem even with high-end SLRs.
Usually the center focus point is the strongest and focusing works best when there is a strong vertical line.

There isn't a complete solution, but you there are a couple of work-arounds If you have a camera with manual focus, then use manual focus Point the center focus point on an edge, depress the shutter button 1/2 way to focus, then re-frame the picture.

Intermittantly does not auto focus properly sometimes focuses when the picture is taken and sometimes remains blurred Nikon coolpix 3200 12.0 megapixel


Hi,

Your Nikon Coolpix 3200 Digital Camera is equipped with a AF assist illuminator which makes focus easier when shooting in darker situations.

In spite of that, on occasion, it is quite possible that the camera will fail to achieve sharp auto-focus.

Point and Shoot cameras use a contrast-based focusing system: this works only when the contrast in the composition is high.

When you press the shutter halfway down the camera attempts to focus, but if it shows red brackets it implies that the focus has not been achieved.
Please take care to note this indication, and if you do not see the Green "Focus Lock" indicator, please attempt to recompose the shot.

Release the shutter, press halfway through again and wait for a focus lock.

The sensor on a P&S camera is very small (about 8-9x smaller in surface area compared to DSLRs)
In low light conditions achieving focus can be a challenge for P&S cameras.
These are technical limitations which are not specific to your camera but common to all cameras in the same segment across various camera manufacturers.

Hi, I have a issue with the quality of the pictures I've taken recently on my Z2, the pictures a blurry around the edges. The centre of the photo is sharp. Do you have any suggestions please of what to do,...


This is due to settings change
Please switch the focus mode to multi point focus or any other
current setting will be center focus or spot focus that is why only the center is focused and the rest is blurry
Please refer to your fuji manual for instructions on how to change the focus mode

Thanx and i hope this solves your problem

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.

Focus points


you cannot see all 51 AF points in the viewfinder. The purpose for this is not to block your view of the actual view. But the AF points are there. Just press the multi selector button to move the AF points around

AF Illuminator


The AF illuminator allows the auto focus system to focus on dark subjects. When the shutter button is pressed half way, the AF illuminator will light up the subject. The default setting is “ON.”
