Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Open Question

Sony cyber-shot dsc-500, unable to focus.

I am unable to focus this camera at any distance. The screen is out of focus at any distance and then when I push the button 1/2 way down it becomes more out of focus. I can seen the screen attempting to focus, and can hear the motor, but it appears to go from one extreme to the other passing thru a point where you can see it does focus on its way to worse. This camera has never been dropped and use to take very nice pictures. Is this a setting problem? Can I do something to make it default to original settings?

SOURCE: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Can you print photos with time/date stamp on them?

Yes and no... When printing the photos yourself, you can add the date via software. You can also download software that will allow you to add the date (and save it) before printing your images (http://www.avpsoft.com/products/timetophoto/).
As far as commercial printing kiosks (Walgreens, Walmart ect.) you have already found out that it isn't possible; however, I have found a local Camera Retailer (Mom and Pop shop) with some high end kiosks that read the stored date and ask if you want it included with the picture. The only thing is that it puts the date on the back of the photo, my wife would prefer it on the front.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC- W55 takes blurry pictures


Hi!
The focus doesn't move as it should - it was stuck before you tapped it. Could be sand or something in it. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. You can contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, I can offer you a very good price. My e-mail is toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Hope this helps!

if it has changed it's possible you changed the mode to where it takes longer to focus.

for one, this camera has a "constant focus" function that will continuously monitor distance to target and keep the camera in focus, for fastest focusing, switch to this mode. also, are you pre-focusing your images?

Many novices don't know that you are supposed to 'prime' the camera by lightly pressing down the shutter and then when it lights green on the LED light and on the screen, you depress the shutter fully to take the picture. I experience fast picutures this way and I prefer not to even use constant-focus mode. give that a try.

if you don't 'prime' it, the camera basically doesnt know its about to take a picture, so when you hit the button it has to effectively say "OH CRAP picture time!", focus itself, and then snap the pic.

best of luck.
