My camera has been taking great pictures but having got it out if the case yesterday, when turning it on, the screen is out of focus and no matter what I do to Optical or Digital Zooms, it will not focus. Could this be due to getting sand in the camera as I had it on thebeach on Saturday?
Any help much appreciated
For some reasons, the same happened to my camera its casio-EX-Z600.. it went out of focus for no reason. Reading the above comment, I decided to try and tapped the lense with a pencil..whoala, it worked!! I am no expert but tapping the lense softly seems to solve the problem.
Obviously it is happened due to sand getting in the camera and i also hope that water not getting in the camera.
i suppose lens drive that is very delicate get jamming due to sand or it may be short circuit due to water. i think that's why your picture is out. so go to casio shop.

Go to MENU. Then TOOLS. Make sure Motion Detection is in AUTO.
If that is on AUTO then Put the camera on a hard surface (like tripod) and focus and see if image is still blurry. Lastly, it is difficult to focus in some conditions. Move the focus point, you can click on the screen to change it. Blur can be caused by: long exposures, camera motion during photograph, bad conditions unable to focus.
The focus routine in this camera gets confused often. It can be frustration. It will only be in focus when it is GREEN before you shoot and the camera is not shaking. At night it can take great night shots with a TRIPOD and Exposure set to -1 to -2.
Check your settings - try taking sots with the different focus settings and compare. If all photos show some identical signs, you need a fix on your camera. If, for one photo taken with the auto focus settings, look different, you need more practice with your camera.
Do you mean the viewfinder or the lcd-screen?
The Nikon D80 does not have a 'live-view' mode to watch the picture you're about to take on the LCD-screen. It's a semi-professional camera not to be used like a standard 'point-and-shoot' digital camera.
If it is the viewfinder that's out of focus, try adjusting the dial to the right of the viewfinder. It might also be that your internal mirror doesn't get powered (in this case you're unable to see the focus areas). In the last case you will have to get the camera serviced by Nikon.
Your camera's Focus mode may be set on Macro Selectable in which case the Auto Focus Range will be "wide: 0.07–0.7 m, tele: 0.4–0.7 m (macro AF)" as quoted in the specifications from www.kodak.com web page for the EasyShare M1033. While this setting is great for a close-up of a flower, anything more than a meter (about one yard) away will be blurred unless you reset your Auto Focus mode back to "normal AF" or "landscape mode"
Had "FOCUS ERROR" appear on my Finepix S9500. The lens seemed to be stuck at the extremity of focus range. I resorted to hitting the camera on a table while turning it off (because this is when it sounded as though the focus motor was trying to move the lens back). Guess what? It worked!!!!!
DSLR camera was not made to be used as a point and shoot camera and you cant preview the shot before taking a picture. You are to use the eye piece to focus right. Also before taking a picture, push the exposure button just a little to let the camera focus right.
When you depress the picture button you should both hear the camera making motor noises and see the image focus changing as it seeks the proper focus for the image.
If no focus movement takes place and you hear nothing then the focus motor is either completely jammed or malfunctioning.
Alternatively focus movement may take place but it never finds the right focus point. Or you may hear a buzzing or clicking sound when it should be focusing.
These symptoms can be caused by impact or, more commonly, sand or other contaminants making their way into the delicate system which moves the focus element.
The camera will require professional repair in either of these cases.
