Focus The split ring focus does not go all the way to sharp alignment at infinite distance. I haven't taken any pictures yet with this camera. Is this something that can be fixed? Thank you.

Re: focus

Your problem could be caused by one of several things. The lens may be out of adjustment or have a loose mount. The camera also had problems with the mirror hinges. Look into the mirror area with the lens off to see if the mirror is square within the mount ring.

Is it possible to manually control the focus on this camera? (Konica Minolta Maxxum 400si SLR 35mm Film Camera) I need to be able to manually control the focus, apeture, and shutter speed for a film...

The description of the manual focus is available in part 2 of the manual, page 40. The manual is available as a PDF here: . It is the seventh camera in the SI series in the list.

To manually focus the lens, press the focus-mode button on the front of the camera (bottom left when you are behind the camera) until M. focus appears in the data panel. If you have an AF lens, turn the focusing ring until the subject appears sharp. If you have an xi-Series or AF Power Zoom lens, pull and turn the lens control ring.

The focus indicator will light when the subject is in focus. To return to autofocus mode, press the focus-mode button again. The camera will also return to the autofocus mode if you press the program reset button.

I hope this helps.

(in manual focus, you can take a picture even if the subject in the focus frame is not in focus. Often it means you need to take multiple pictures to get a good shot of the subject. The advantage is that you can get some interesting shots.)

My pics on my Canon rebel eos looked clear on my camera but when downloaded to the computer they are bluury. Lanscape photos are fine but wildlife is blurred.

First of all this is a digital camera, not a 35mm film camera, but it is the same fix... You need to use a faster shutter speed for your wildlife pictures. Or use a tripod, or both. The small screen on the camera is not big enough to tell if a photo is really sharp. Also check the way you have your autofocus set up, or focus manually to test a few closer shots. It may be that the auto focus is set to focus on a part of the picture which is not the bit you are interested in. There should be some indicators in the viewfinder to tell you where in the frame the camera is picking out to auto focus onto. Blurry can only be either out of focus or shake. (It could be both of course!)

How to focus with vivitar v3800

Turn the focusing ring on whatever lens you're using. You can use either the split-prism in the center or the the microprism collar and matte screen around it. For the split-prism, turn the focus ring until the two segments of the image divided by the horizontal line in the center line up. For the microprism collar and matte screen, turn the focus ring until the image appears sharp.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...

Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

My FM10 focus screen does not focus, but split image works

I have seen bent mirrors and mis-aligned focus screens do this. It is possible for the film plane to be in focus while the viewfinder is out. you can test this with newspaper and a tape measure. buy a cheap roll of neg film and set up your camera on a tripod at a fixed distance, say 6ft. from the paper. Ideally I'd attach the paper to a light stand or the back of a chair. so that the paper is at 6ft, the back wall is at maybe 10ft. and there's something in the foreground in case its front focusing. then set the lens at what the scale says is 6ft regardless of what the viewfinder looks like. Shoot one frame with an aperture of f/2.8 on your 50mm. Shoot a second frame at f/16. rewind the film & develop it at a drug store or 1hr lab. if both images are sharp, the problem is in the mirror/ prism. if the 2.8 is OOF it's the mounting ring. I want you to shoot the F/16 to prove that the stop down lever is functioning.

Can you focus closer than 1m for close up work on a Fuji GA64Zi?

According to Fuji, the minimum focusing distance on this camera is 1m, so no. Its one of the camera's limitations

put simply the ISO number is how sensitive the film is to light, the higher the number the more sensitive the film. The ISO on the camera sets the exposure system to give the proper exposure for that film (the f/n80 usually sets the ISO automaticly). Also the higher the ISO the more grainy the picture, I would recommend using ISO 200 film for the pictures you describe. I would set the camera to the P setting it is a good all-around setting.

Auto Focus Nikon N65

I have been finding a lot of these concerns while looking back at unsolved SLR issues, it shoots at the ceiling or the sky because there is just enough light the camera detects. Check the lens ring for a white dot and the ring for the aperture rotate the ring so the red f-stop (usually in red and f-22 or somewhere near that number) align, now the lens will open enough to allow the light that the camera has determined that it needs, now it will allow the shutter to open. I just joined the fixya in December, so I hope to hear from you if this helped and if you have any other questions about the N65.
