Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
Hi! I recently purchased the Sony W70 because my Canon Powershot G5 was getting a little out of date! I also own the Canon 10D. I can use a camera, but with the Sony W70 - I'm having problems. I'd say about 75% of my photos are out of focus, and that's just a ridiculous statistic! Either I am doing something wrong (all of these photos are in automatic mode and in several different lighting situations) or something is wrong with my camera. Do you have any suggestions? I've never had a problem like this before . . . I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
Hello. There are some possible reasons for this. First one could be that the lens assembly isn't focusing corectly because the lens aren't aligned properly. This is a common problem with digital cameras and is happening due to some shocks received by the camera. Sometimes it can happen without any obvious reason because of some small parts in the lens mechanism that get out of position and jams other components preventing them to move the lens properly. In your case, there could be a more minor defect because if the lens assembly fails the camera will display error messages or "turn off then back on" kind of messages. I've seen cameras that take blurry pictures because of temperature variations that happen quickly resulting in moisture or condensation over the lens. Altrought this probably isn't your case, be carefull with any camera, not to expose it to hight temperature variations (from cold to hot places especially). If your camera is still in warranty contact an authorised service to have the camera checked out. Problems can range from lens assembly damage, firmware corruption, processor to ccd sensor imperfect contacts and so on. They will run a special diagnostic mode on the camera and tell you for shure. Sorry for my bad english as I am from a non-english speaking country.
