It appears your camera is in "macro" or "close-up" mode. The obvious solution is to take it out of that and back into normal mode. Since you didn't specify the make and model of your camera, I can't give you detailed instructions on how to do that.

All auto focus cameras use contrast to focus so if you are attempting to focus on glass, chrome, blank sky, large body of water, painted wall, mirror, or any other low contrast subject the auto focus will fail. Another place auto focus will fail is when you are to close to your subject you my not be physically to close but have used the zoom to give a closer shot.

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.

Does the fuji fine pix camera have a focus button? where is it?I want to be able to zoom in on a subject without losing focus.


No, your camera does not have a manual focus button.
Even if it did, you wouldn't be able to keep focus while zooming.
Only very expensive lenses maintain focus regardless of focal lenght.
The correct procedure is to zoom and then focus.

Use spot metering & focus when taking pictures of an object.
Set your camera to highest Megapixel setting, Only use max. optical zoom on the subject (do not use digital zoom) .U dont need to get close to object as you can edit/zoom/crop the picture using any photo software program afterwards .

Close up shots won't auto focus.the lens trys to adjust but the final setting is out of focus. the camera works fine on subjects at least 2 feet away


try using the little throttle that is located just below your on/off switch. if you push that either up/down, it should help you manually focus your subject. It is actually a really fun feature to play around with.

Cannot focus on a particular subject


If the camera is having a difficult time auto-focusing, you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance from you and then move the camera back to the intended subject and take the picture without losing focus. First, turn the camera on and locate the Autofocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away as the subject the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While holding the shutter button halfway down, aim the camera at the original subject and press the shutter button all the way down.

Shooting in Macro Mode


The MACRO MODE focus range of the D-630 is .4 inches to 26 inches. This means the camera must be between 0.4 inches and 26 inches from the subject for the picture to be in focus.

Focus on a particular subject?


If the camera is having trouble doing an auto focus you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance away from you, and then move the camera back to your original subject and take your picture without losing that focus. First turn the camera on and locate the AutoFocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away from you as the subject that the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, move the camera back to include the subject you originally wanted in the image, then press the shutter fully. (Please see page 42 in the D-535 Zoom Reference Manual in Section 3, under the heading titled “If Correct Focus Cannot Be Obtained”, for a more detailed explanation.)

Shooting in macro mode?


The Macro Mode operating range of the D-535 Zoom camera is 8 inches to 20 inches. This means the camera must be between 8 inches and 20 inches away from the subject for a picture to be in focus.
