    Check the firmware. I tried updating the firmware yesterday, but disconnected in the middle and now i'm having the same problems. I had the problem with another camera and sent it in to be fixed. If continues you might want to do the same. Also try another lens to see if it works on the camera's body.

    Make sure when you hold the camera, that you don't block the sensor on the front.

How can I focus it other than using the focus knob


The focus knob is the way you focus overhead projectors. Perhaps you simply haven't turned the knob far enough? How far is the projector from the screen? If it's quite close, you need to turn the knob to raise the lens. If far away, turn it to lower the lens.

How do I focus the camera


Usually you can't
The circle if you select that mode either controls where the focus point is (the object that you are focusing on) or the exposure setting (or equivalent for a CCD). Hence if you are taking a picture of a person's face, the circle should appear over their face, and not over the far corner of the room (if you select that mode)
Some devices have the option to hold the focus while you move the aiming point away from it - having done this you may point the camera at the far corner of the room and the person's face will still be in focus but not in the centre of the picture.
This only applies if you are far enough away from the object. In general it not possible to take close up pictures (less than about 100 cm)
You need to read the instruction manual very carefully.

I have a ViviCam X014N. Everytime I take a close up pictures, the images comes up fuzzy. What am I doing wrong? I follow Macro setting recommending 30-45 cm away, but still no luch.


Sounds like you're not using a tripod. Macro pictures have a very small area that can be in focus....the slightest movement can cause the blurry pics.

There's something wrong with the focus of my camera. Everytime I take a picture it's blurry and it won't focus unless I zoom in. Is there a way for me to fix it?


ensure finger is not covering auto focus.

ensure camera is not in macro setting. look for icon like a flower this is only for close up shots and will cause bluring if subject is too far away.

check that camera is set in auto focus and not manual focus mode if it has this.


I hope this was helpful.

Nikon S210 pictures always out of focus


Is the lens clean? Are you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera a chance to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way? Do you actually move while pressing the button? Try taking a few pics while the camera is on a tripod or a firm surface to eliminate movement.

My VistaQuest VQ DV800HD camcorder's close up pictures are blury.


What's your definition of "close up"?
Sorry to say its a very cheap camera. It will not focus on anything under 3 feet. It's called a fixed focal camera. Anything beyond 3 feet should be fine.

Z740 cannot focus on long-distance indoor shots


Have you tried changing the mode? ie portrait, closeup, macro etc?

Focus,


When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

Set up for canon 30D EOS for intraoral pictures, to ger everything in focus.


still not sure what introral is???...but your depth of field.... ( how much of image is in focus)..is dependent on aperture setting ..the higher the number..(smaller the aperture) the more of the image will be in focus at once (front to back).... so set camera to Tv setting for aperture priority..set that number to f8 or above... f11- f16 f22 preferably and shoot away knowing you will get things in focus from close to far away
