Dear friend, take your lens off, turn your camera to M for manual, rotate the main comand dial till you see the word BULB, press down the shutter button and keep holding it down, use a hand puffer, not canned air and gently puff some air into the camera. Very important, the lens opening must be facing down so any little debris will fall directly out. Let go of the shutter button when finished and replace the lens, repete if needed. You can buy those little hand blowers or puffers at any camera store. Hope that helps, Barry fossils@rapidnet.com

All my photos are slightly out of focus-no matter what setting i'm on.


One possibility that you can correct:
The eyepiece (viewfiender) diopter is out of adjustment for your eyesight.
Look at the viewfinder and locate the "slider".
Now look through the eyepiece (viewfinder) while in auto-focus mode.
Adjust the slider, left or right, until the image looks sharp to you.
If you wear corrective glasses, you can adjust the diopter whether you use your glasses or not.

This solution assumes that you are shooting in auto-focus; however, this also works in manual mode.
If you require more info, please post a comment for me, or view other expert advice.

Cleaned inside of viewfinder, now AF focus lights gone


Then you learn, when everything works fine, dont mess with it! Have a look at the gold pins that rely the body to the lens. Also check that your lens manual switch focus is engaged... Try a friend lens to see if its your cam or the lens...

Picture on viewfinder is blurred Everything in my viewfinder is blurred, even the numbers and stuff in there. The picture I take isn't blurred.


I think your camera has a diopter adjustment. If it does, it'll be located on the right side of the eyepiece. It's a small wheel with a + and -. Adjust that until the image is clear.
-or-
It's possible that it is in need of cleaning. If you plan to remove the focusing screen, be exceptionally careful not to scratch it. Has it been subjected to extreme moisture conditions?

You can only use the viewfinder. If you want to use the LCD, you need to buy an SLR with "live view." However, you'll soon get used to using the viewfinder, it's the best way to shoot unless you're holding the camera somewhere you can't get your eye to the viewfinder.

How do I clean the camera lens?


The best way to clean a lens is to use a piece of lint free lens cleaning tissue and a small amount of lens cleaning solution. Place a drop or two of cleaner on the tissue (never directly onto the lens) and then wipe the lens in a circular motion, removing any marks or smear. Additionally a smaller blower brush can be used to simply blow off or brush away loose dust. If the above supplies are not available a clean, dry, soft, lint free cloth can be used to clean the lens. The same method can be used to clean the viewfinder eyepiece of Nikon cameras.
