Will not auto focus

I have had this S7000 for some years now and this is the first problem it has given me. It's like the auto focus is turned off. Is that possible, could I have hit a button and done that???? I'm still looking through the user guide, but could use a little help.

    had my camera for some years, occasionally hit the button on the side and got blur, lately I get blur even though the button is in the right position. Sometimes I can shoot 2-3 pics before the problem occurs and after it gets worse and worse.

Hi again, took my camera to a shop and they figure it is really sick and needs repair/change the autofocusdevise. They called the Fuji company that claimed they did not no of this problem, so no extended guarantee:( Would appreciate if you guys who have the same problem can clarify whether the advice about the switch helped you or not. Thanx a lot.

There is a switch on the top of the camera that has your focus modes. switch to C-AF for Continuous auto focus. If you have it set to MF - Manual Focus that would explain this easily.

My camera's view screen is shaking and my photos are out of focus

It appears that you have an auto focus issue. Yes, it is repairable but at what cost? The part son those cameras are proprietary and cost a small fortune not to talk about the heavy labor involved in making the repair.

Does the manual focus work?

Auto focus is to slow

Try pressing the button down all the way quickly. If that doesn't work just play with your settings until it works.

Shutter lag on fuji finepix s7000 - is there a solution ?

2 things - you could do 1 or both, depending on the photographic situation:
1) If you can choose manual focusing, select manual focussing & prefocus on subject. This eliminates the need to refocus. I do this lots with the S9500 model.
2) If you can shoot in manual mode, use auto exposure to see what shutter speed & aperture the camera selects when the camera is pointed at the ground (or other suitably lit spot). Change to manual exposure & set the aperture & shutter speed indicated by the camera in AUTO mode.

Once you do either or both of these you will get instantaneous shutter release.

Practise on unimportant subjects first and see how you go.

My Fuji S7000 wont focus when I use a wide angle lens adapter.

I've since found out (via a Fuji forum) that the camera MUST be set to Super Forced Macro for the lens to focus ..... which it now does!

Zoom error

Just fixed the same problem on mine. This is what I did:
Unscrew 6 small screws around the lens casing and remove the casing (two layers ((rings)). Jiggle the inner most lens casing while you turn power on. The lens moving (i.e., auto focus) mechanism becomes unstuck. Voila.
The problem in my case was caused by the dust that accumulated inside the casing and caused the auto focus mechanism not to move freely.
Good luck.

Using my camera

IMHO ---- A lot depends on the lighting available for shot, outdoor and bright is best. Use AP setting (dial on top), Aperture Priority, and set desired F number (using thumb wheel, top right edge) as high an F as you dare, taking speed used into account, by watching it change in viewfinder (do not want a shaky slow speed!). The depth of field, hopefully with higher F, will be deep enough to catch back and front rows, in focus. A half press on shutter should trigger auto focus and give chance to preview in viewfinder. Good luck hope the weather behaves. Less light = less flexibility.....

Camera will only focus in macro mode

Check house not inadvertently set it to macro. If it has manual focusing try to reset the focus collar - check the manual for something you may have overlooked Failing all that look up the Fuji Tech Support team in the website
