Re: Focussing

Two possible solutions. The camera may be set to Macro. The lens may have failed. If the camera is not set to macro then the lens has to be replaced and the camera reprogrammed.

I have a canon xsi that I have been using successfully for a year and a half. All of a sudden the focus preview is not working. It doesn't matter what lens I am using. I shoot in manual mode. What I...

When you depress the shutter button halfway, you are (in fact) activating the focus mechanism.
If in AF mode, you should hear the 'beep' when focus is achieved.
However, bear in mind that the XSi has three focussing modes: Quick mode, Live View, and Manual. There is a difference in how focussing is achieved between the Quick and Live View modes. (see page 102 onwards of the user manual "using AF to focus").
Also, the barrel of the lens will move during the focus operation.
If this does not happen, then there is a definate problem.
Having images in focus despite having no movement on the lens, simply means that the aperture settings are probably small enough to give sufficient depth of field to include your subject.

2 problems. I have the Coolpix L100. Sometimes my photos are blurry and also. there is a delay when I snap a photo which isnt good when trying to get action photos.

With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

If you take lots of action pictures, you will have to work on a technique of partially pressing the shutter to get focus in anticipation of the shot (perhaps focussing on where the action will occur), then holding it part-pressed until the moment you want to capture. This is really no more of a problem than setting an anticipatory focus on a manual focussing film camera use to be. Some more complex digital cameras will allow you to turn off auto focus and focus manually.

I cannot get the camera to focus any image except

You're apparently in either Macro or SuperMacro mode. Press the Macro button (left on the four-way controller, marked with a blooming flower) repeatedly to cycle through the modes.

I have an Olympus X785 which is having problems focussing on shots in the dark or dim light. Any help appreciated

Some cameras have a low light focussing light built in. If yours doesn't, then you will experience problems in low light.

Auto focussing problem with nikon d90

This is most likely a problem with the lens. Do you have the switch on the side of the lens at 'A'? Are you able to focus manually? It is a common fault that can occur if the lens has receive a knock or the camera has been dropped. Also, grit or sand in the lens mechanism could cause this. It is recommended that you send this camera to a qualified service centre.

Green focus box

It might be because u r working in macro/supermacro mode (u can see a little flower on top of the viewfinder/lcd display) and focusing on a distant object or u try focussing a subject placed very near the cam while working with non macro mode. If changing these doesnt solve ur prblm, plz provide full details of what mode u use, what u r focussing on, what is the lighting conditions u used, etc..
