Re: a345 auto focus

Check the silver crome ring on the larger of the two lenses is not loose. The glue frequently gives out and it stops the lens opening to its correct position.

I have a canon powershot sx20..looking through the view finder looks blurry,but after takingt the picture and looking on the screen the picture does NOT look blurry...It's only blurry when looking through...

Your camera is equipped with a optical diopter that will allow you to adjust the optics in the viewfinder to your eye. meaning bringing everything into focus as it should. The way I use this (set it) is to let the camera auto focus on a subject and then turn the diopter until I see the subject clearly.
It really helps if the subject is about 12 feet away (get it real sharp) and the camera is mounted on a tripod. Once set I put a little dot of paper white out on the diopter adjustment knob so if it gets turned I know and can quickly return it to the correct spot. I'm including a diagram where this adjustment knob is on your camera, have fun.

Sometimes when taking photos the photos are fine and sometimes they are really blurry. Why is this haening?

this may not be the camera but the lighting situation of the photo. or how the camera is held this also happens on film cameras.
if the subject is not well lit or the flash fails to go off or is blocked by a finger then the shutter stays open longer to get enough light to see the image. if the auto focus apature is blocked it will not focus on the subject and will come out out of focus
if the camera moves in the time that the shot is taken it will blur.

if the blufing is from left to right or up and down it means the camer moved during the shot.
if the whole picture is blured all over this looks like being out of focus and not due to movement.

check your IOS speed setting for your camera if it is set low then the camera will needs a lot of light or show shutter speed to capture an image. set it to auto or higher than 100 is best for most situation

if the camera is set to manual an not automatic the camera will only shoot at the set shutter speed and this can cause bluring.

try some test shots on a table or a tripod and take several shots in automatic mode with auto focus on take them one after the other they should all be the same but if one is blurred then there is a problem with the metering of your camera if they are all fine they it is due to camera shake when the picture was taken.

a few tips.

hold the camera to the eye with the elbows against the side of the body.
in dark lit places try to use a tripod or some other support or external light source or flash.
ensure the fingers are away from the auto focus apature the lens and the flash light.

i hope this was helpful

My cable release is not working. It triggers the auto focus but will not take a picture.

Try setting the camera to M manual focus and manually focusing on the subject. Some combination of focus size and focus type may not focus unless the sensor sees a subject and is in focus. So if the sensor cannot see and know it is in focus it will not fire. If you subject is not moving then focusing in manual will ensure the subject is in focus and the camera can shoot.

Appears in focus in viewfinder, but isn't

Change your focusing setting to spot focus. Then, focus on your main subject, keep the button half-way pressed while you re-compose the shot and then press it the rest of the way. Does that improve the shot?

In auto focus mode the lese seems to "hunt" and won't focus

When this happens with my D70s, I know of two options. 1) use manual focus or 2) autofocus on another object about the same distance away from my subject (holding the shutter release half way) and then move the camera back to my subject composition. This seems to happen when there is little contrast in the scene, i.e., a field of same colored flowers. Hope this helps.

Have you tried switching the mode dial to a flower icon?

The mode with the flower icon is the macro mode, you can shoot up to 5 cm from the subject.

Also, if you are very close to the subject, then the auto-focus may not function properly if the targeting area is not centered on the subject.

When I shoot macro with my FZ7K, I use manual focus, the auto-focus generally has trouble focusing up close.

I would suggest trying manual focus.

On a digicam, autofocus works by looking for areas of contrast in the image you are framing. So if you are taking a picture of people (who usually have little contrast) and there is something in the frame (such as a building in the background) with more contrast or sharper definition, the autofocus may focus on that item and not your subject. Knowing this, your job is to work with your camera's modus operandi to get the shot you want. One way is to zoom in, lock the focus on your subject (by pressing the shutter button halfway down) and, while still half-pressing (or switching to manual focus if you have that option), zoom out to recompose. Sometimes you can change perspective or backgrounds to give your subject better contrast. Also, aim for areas of high contrast, such as edges.

Blurry picture

I have this same problem. If I shut the camera off then on again it clears up. Someone from Fuji said that this is because the Auto-Focus is stuck on. They advised to half push the shutter button to release the auto-focus.

The camera uses a precise auto focus mechanism, but under the conditions and with the subjects described below the auto focus function may not work well. Subjects moving at high speed Very shiny subjects such as a mirror or car body Extremely low contrast subjects (such as subjects dressed in the same color as the background, etc.) When there are objects in front of or behind the subject (such as an animal in a cage or a person in front of a tree) Subjects with little reflection, such as hair or fur Subjects with no solidity, such as smoke or flames Subjects viewed through glass In addition, the focus is set on the center of the frame, so if the subject is not at the center (when shooting two people standing side by side, for example), the focus is adjusted on the background and the desired subject (the two people) may be out of focus. In such cases, do the following: Point the camera so that one of the persons is at the center of the viewfinder. Half-press the shutter button. (The focus is locked on the person.) Holding the shutter button in the half-pressed position, reposition the camera to achieve the desired composition. Take the photo. If the focus cannot be adjusted, it is locked to infinity (1.5 meters when using the flash).
