Maje sure you lens it not set to manual focus and that the lens is mounted correctly. Also - FWIW - shoot with a fast shutter speed (1/250 or better) to avoid blur.

Digital camera won't focus


I see your camera has a focus area. If you have a subject with enough contrasting parts in this area, the focusing should work fine.
You must know that not every subject can be focused on as quick or as good as you would like. If there are little contrasting lines in the subject, or when it is getting dark or there are dark and light parts in the focus area, that don't belong together, every camera can have problems to focus correct. Changing the ISO settings won't change anything for the auto focus.
But special when you try to shoot in almost dark places, you camera will have lots of work to focus and in most cases it won't work at all.

You could try to place an object with light and dark lines, on the same distance as the object you want to picture. Then by pressing the shutter half, when focusing on the object with much contrast, you can look if the camera can focus. If it is in focus, keep the shutter pressed half way down, while moving to the object you want to shoot a picture of. Once you have every thing in the frame as you want it, press the shutter complete.

My fujifilm fine pix av 190 camera does not shoot when pressing shoot button....i have to press hard to shoot...


That camera could have two things causing it, 1 the soft press is the auto focus. Most cameras have a half press or soft press to turn on the auto focus and the hard press or press to take the picture. That could just be the camera. Some cameras that can be turned off in the menu. If that is not the case and it does not auto focus when you press it, then it is the button. We used to see that a lot with cameras. The button gives sometimes.

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.


I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

I have a brand new nikon coolpix s3000. it's on full-time auto focus. Any ideas?


You can change this in the menu while in shooting mode. This is from page 48 of the manual:

Choose how the camera focuses.

A (auto) M d (Shooting menu) M I Autofocus mode

A Single AF (default setting)

The camera focuses when the shutter-release button is pressed halfway.

B Full-time AF

The camera focuses continuously until the shutter-release button is pressed down

halfway. Use with moving subjects. The sound of lens drive movement will be heard

while the camera focuses.

Why do some pic's I take blurr and I'm not moving the camera.


Hello. I have the same camera as well as the z712 and the P880. They are all top notch cameras. If your setting is auto focus be sure to hold the shutter button HALF WAY down till you get "a green'' signal then shoot. If you don't get a green shoot signal your zoom may be too high. It's very hard to shoot at high zoom at close range without a tripod.My best results have been put it on auto and shoot like crazy with low zoom till you know what your camera can do . Just take pictures,lots of them. Best wishes. superg

Focus


This camera has TTl auto focus so it can't be switched to manual so that idea is quickly stomped on. A silly question, are you half pushing the shoot button down first to activate the auto focus. If you don't and just hit the shoot button you'll definitely get out of focus shots. Have you sat down and read the manual on how to correctly focus. A number of things can crop up which can fool the autofocus into a wrong setting. Have you dropped the camera or has someone else done so? The lens assembly could be damaged. Try pointing the camera at something about three feet away whilst half pushing the shoot button then still holding the button half way point the camera at something a long way off. Can you hear the mechanism trying to focus and does the picture in the LCD change. If it's all quiet and the picture doesn't change then it could be a damaged focus motor or a connection to it is broken. Are you sure the camera isn't switched to Macro. A lot of people get caught with that one. You'll never shoot a focussed picture in macro unless it's less than a foot or so away. BMW

Auto Focus Problem


Way to check settings is to take the batteries out for a while, it should revert to factory default settings. I tell a lot of People to try this, it works an amazing number of times. Auto focus looks for vertical lines, what are You shooting at? Try rotating the camera 90 degrees, if it locks better,Bingo. Subjects without much contrast are hard to lock focus on

Sequential shooting modes


There are four sequential modes: Sequential shooting, High-speed Sequential shooting, AF Sequential shooting and Auto Bracketing. Sequential shooting modes can be selected from the CAMERA menu: Sequential shooting: A maximum of 11 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 1.7 fps in HQ mode. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. High-speed Sequential shooting: A maximum of 4 frames can be shot sequentially at approximately 3.3 fps. Focus, Brightness (exposure) and White Balance are locked at the first frame. AF Sequential shooting: Focus is individually locked for each frame. The AF Sequential shooting speed is slower than for normal sequential shooting. Auto Bracketing: When Auto bracketing is set, exposure is changed automatically for each frame when you start shooting. The exposure differential can be selected in the menus. Focus and white balance are locked at the first frame.
