Poor focus at close range


What do you mean by close range?
All lenses have range within which objects can be focussed. Objects within the "closest focussing distance" cannot be focussed. The maximum is usually infinity. Yours lens specification should tell you what the "closest focussing distance" is.

I can't figure out how to make my sony dsc-T700 take clear close up pictures.


Many sources (reviews) of this specific model suggest that the camera has focussing issues, not just at close range. It does seem to be subject dependant though. Many cameras need a good degree of contrast around a centre point of the subject to focus properly. Bear in mind that this model was released in 2008, and technology (i.e. later models) has improved since then.

Just one example that states what most other sites also state, can be found here: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/T700/T700A.HTM

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.

What is macro used for


It's used for extreme close up shots. The setting allows the autofocus to focus closer than it normally can, but may prevent it from focussing on distant objects.

My Sony H1 has stopped focussing.. It does not auto focus and cannot be manually focussed either


HI, you can just get the focus option back on your device by just resetting the Camera to the default settings.

Follow the steps below to reset your device..

Go to Setup-1 Menu
select Initialize
Select Reset the camera to defaults
Select OK or YES when it prompts.

this gets the focus option back on. .

My camera will not focus. I have a 50mm lens and 200mm and neither will focus


Which exact lenses are you trying to use? The N2000 (aka F301) is a manual focus camera so if you're trying to use autofocus lenses you have to focus them manually. Sorry if this seems an insulting suggestion, but you did state "my camera will not focus" and I've learned that on FixYa it's best not to assume any prior level of knowledge with regard to those who post questions.

The next thing to check is whether the viewfinder has an eyecup attached, if so slide it upwards to remove it as sometimes they have a corrective lens fitted if the previous user needed corrective optics. If your vision is fine (with glasses/contact lenses if necessary) then a corrective lens on the viewfinder may make things look blurry.

Other than that, the only other possible cause (other than a pair of broken lenses) is if the focussing screen has become dislodged downwards (or somehow fitted upside-down) then the viewfinder image will be unsharp. Officially the F301/N2000 had a fixed focussing screen but it could be replaced with one of three designed for the higher specified F501 (which does have autofocus), and if not seated correctly you'd get the focussing issue you describe.

You can test if the focussing screen is the problem in one of two ways:-
1. A visual inspection (you may need to get a more experienced photographer to take a look at it);

2. Set the lens to focus at infinity and at the widest possible aperture and take a photograph of a distant object (ignoring the blurred viewfinder). process the film and inspect the photo. If it's sharp then you have a focussing screen problem. If not, then it's a lens problem.

If the problem is a poorly fitted focussing screen then it may just need reseating or to be removed and refitted. It's vital to do this in a dust free environment and to avoid getting fingerprints on the screen. Some screens sit in a hinged frame which then clips into place when pushed up, others push into a pair of clips towards the top rear and then the front is held in place by a spring clip: it's been a long while since I worked on the F501 or F301 so I don't recall which system is used.

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.

This camera should still be under warranty, so if it's not focussing correctly then let Sony fix it. Before doing so, check that you haven't accidentally left the camera set to macro (close-up focussing) mode.
