Z10 - autofocus broken

Hi,

I've got a cute little Z10, but the autofocus is broken - just tries real hard and makes everything more blurry.

Help!

DoI need to trash it (please no) or can it be saved? I've tried resettingit, switching it off, changing the settings. Occasionally it will worka bit, either when I first open the camera or after zooming fully outand in again, but it's not a happy bunny.

LOUISE,
SORRY NO ONE HAS ANSWERED THIS. I JUST FOUND IT. OK, REPAIR IS OUT OF THE QUESTION. REASON? THEY WOULD CHARGE YOU MORE THAN THE COST OF THE CAMERA. YES, AFRAID SO. THAT'S USUALLY THE CASE WITH REPAIR. IT'S NOT WORTH IT, UNLESS THE CAMERA IS REALLY EXPENSIVE! BEST BET, LIMP ALONG, IF IT WILL WORK AT ALL UNTIL IT JUST DIES A SLOW DEATH AND THEN REPLACE IT WITH MAYBE A LITTLE BETTER CAMERA. I THINK YOU WILL HAVE BETTER LUCK, IF YOU SPEND JUST ALITTLE MORE ON A CAMERA. SORRY I COULDN'T PROVIDE A MAJIC CURE, BUT THERE JUST ISN'T MUCH FIXING TO THESE WHEN THEY DIE. IF I CAN HELP, REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.

Nikon d5100 Blurry photos When I take photos of a party, at night, my photos are very blurry. How can I fix..


Use autofocus if you have a AF lens on it.

Usually you get a kit 18-55 AF lens that has a A/M switch on the side. The switch should be facing the A side so it's set on autofocus. Then you have 9 points on your viewfinder, those are the autofocus points. It should usually be set to center, because you usually want the object in center of your photo to not be blurry.
Remember to press the shutter button halfway and give some time for the autofocus to focus. Then you can press it all the way, you should have your photos nice and clear.

If you happen to have a manual focus lens, you should be watching through the viewfinder and turning the focus ring on the lens and determine if your object is in focus. It's hard at night, but get some practice at home when you have some more light so you get more familiar with the focus.

My camera is taking blurry pictures and its blurry when u look at the screen


Have you checked the autofocus? You may need to clean the front sensor. Hold shutter down half way to see if camera will autofocus, try this in several modes. Hold shutter half way down and look at screen, picture should come into focus. Make sure you do not have "Macro" selected

VEIWFINDER IS BLURRY CANNOT SE OBJECTS CLEARLY


At the bottom of the eye piece there is a little slider than you can move up and down to adjust the focus. That should fix your problem if not then you are not looking into the eye piece close enough make sure your eye is pressed up against the little rubber pad and then adjust the focus.

Unable to Use Card


My Z6 does the same thing every now and then.

The only way I can get the message to stop (and that annoying warning chime) is to pop the card in and out real fast with the camera turned on.

It seems as though these Konicas are REALLY picky with the cards, and this is a well known issue. Also, make sure the little "lock" tab is in the "unlock" position.

You can also try taking the batteries out, and holding the on/off button for 1 minute. That resets it back to factory defaults, and clears out any "bugs". Sometimes it helps.

Sometimes using a card reader and manually formatting the card works too.

Slow taking pic, flash flashes multiple times while lenses acts like it is trying to focus


The evolt cameras use the flash bursts as a "autofocus help". Try to find points with high contrast or edges to point one of the three autofocus points at (you see these points while looking through the viewfinder and they flash red as soon as the camera is focused).

So, flash bursts basically mean "too low light" some other situation which is hard for the camera to focus. In such situations, try to switch to MF mode (manual focus). Or you could buy an external flash (e.g. Olympus FL-36) which has a red light for autofocus assistance instead of flash bursts.
