Focus on Ricoh R6

Could be that the electrical connector on the autofocus has come off. This is a job for a repairer.

My CASIO EXILIM camera wont forcus or keep the right exposure!

The focus frame does not appear on the monitor screen while following conditions.
• In the Auto mode, while the following settings are configured.
- Face Detection : ON
- Effect : Make-UP
- Auto Shutter : Detect Smile
• "MF" or "∞" selected for the focus setting.
• BEST SHOT scenes that use the above settings.
Example: "4 Portrait" BEST SHOT scene

* Changing the above settings will cause the focus frame to reappear.

If your camera wont keep the memory settigns after turn off the camera, its possible that you have some problem with the internal battery and need to be replaced.

Shots are blurry

This issue can occur in the following circumstances:
The subject is too close to the camera lens Insufficient lighting Subject movement Camera movement Incorrect camera settings Incorrect camera operation Follow the steps below to help prevent taking pictures that appear blurry, out-of-focus or distorted.

If the camera has both an auto focus and manual focus mode, make sure it is set to auto focus. Make sure there is enough lighting to allow the camera to focus on the subject. Make sure the camera settings are set appropriately. When taking close-up or macro-type shots, ensure the subject is not closer than the minimum focus distance of the lens. Also, if the camera has a zoom option, set it to the W (wide-angle) position. If you have a fast-moving subject and the camera has a Program AE mode with a higher shutter speed (such as Sports action), make sure it is enabled. Also, if the camera has an ISO control, set it to a higher setting. If your camera has a SteadyShot/anti-blur function, ensure it is enabled. Aim the camera at the subject. Press the shutter button halfway down. NOTES:
Pressing the shutter button halfway down allows the camera to focus automatically. A flashing green indicator will be visible in the LCD or viewfinder. When the indicator stops flashing, focusing is finished and the camera is ready to take the picture. Some camera models have a Monitoring AF setting that can be selected which allows the camera to focus without the need to hold the button halfway down. Consult the instruction manual of the camera for information whether or not this is applicable for your model.

I have Nikon coolpix L110 and when there is any movement it is blurry

Unfortunately I have seen this happen on the newer models of Nikon compared to the older ones when pictures were crisp. Set the camera to a higher shutter speed , try not to use auto. If you are using auto then press down and let the focus come to stay before you click on. I think there is a delay for the focus to come on which makes it a little out of focus. So hold button midway let the green come on in the screen to pressit to click.
Your pictures will come corrrect now.

My lens focuses only intermittenly

If you have the settings on AUTO the camera will automatically adjust to what it thinks will make the best picture.
Try and use the SCN.
You can also switch the flash on and off as you wish.

Blurry picture


Some low-end digital cameras tend to take blurry pictures when the camera isn't perfectly steady and/or there's no much light. The built-in flash is normally weak and one has to find the perfect distance by trial and error. If you're too close, the picture comes washed out. If you're too far, it comes too dark.
Try the following:
  1. Try to get enough light, by turning lights on if indoors.
  2. Hold the camera with both hands, elbows on your sides on a relaxed posture.
  3. If taking portraits ask people to stay reasonably still.
  4. If taking pictures of fast-moving objects, see if your camera has a sports mode and select it.
  5. Pre-focus. Most cameras shutter button has a distinguishable mid-point. If you press it a little bit, the camera pre-focuses but it doesn't take the picture just yet. It does when you press all the way down. By pre-focusing you minimize drastically the time that the camera needs to register the image and you have many more chances to take a good shot.
  6. You may want to use a tripod, a monopod or the built-in timer to minimize the shaking and see if that makes any difference.
If the camera takes blurry pictures consistently even after following the advice above, you may want to consider getting a better one. It could be the camera is defective, but most likely it is due to its low tolerance to shaking and low quality overall.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I need advice on how to take Ice-hockey action pics...

Pictures get blurred because of several reasons:

Low shutter speed - occurs in low lightning conditions.
Auto focus not focused - occurs when pressing the shutter button all the way without waiting for the auto focus ready signal (green box)

To speed up the shutter do the following:
In Camera menu-Quality- Set ISO 100 for outdoor, ISO 400 indoor.

To avert focus problems, set camera menu-Rec- Focus-Infinity, Rec-Quick shutter-On

Hope that helps.
