Question about Cameras

2 Answers

I cannot get my camera to focus on anything further than about 20metres either on auto focus, infinity or manual focus. Focus seems to be ok on closer distances. For a period of time today I had a Lense Error message onthe monitor screen, this message has now disappeared. Any suggestions will be much appreciated. Regards James Kirk jaskirk@talktalk.net

    My Nikon Digital camera E88oo does not seem to focus on anything further than about 60feet.
    Either on auto-focus or manual.
    Also it makes no difference what setting the zoom lens is in.
    Also for about 3 hours yesterday an Error message came up on the lcd saying "lens error".

    Any relevant suggestions will be most welcome.

    Regards

I am unable to take a long (bulb) exposure at night. ISO set to 1600, F 5.6 (as fast as my lens gets) The Camera tries to focus but the shutter will not open


Set the focus to manual and then infinity. If you have the camera on auto focus at night there is not enough light contrast for the camera focus system to lock onto.

Taking a close up of an item 6" long is not


According to the manual, the C310 has a fixed-focus lens with a working range of 0.85 m (about 33 inches) to infinity. So, anything only ten inches from the camera will be out of focus.

Lens will not auto focus any more.


Hi there!

I experienced the exact same problem with my 100-300mm lens and I was never able to get it to work correctly again. In fact, attempting to use it further seemed to exacerbate the problem.

The further you zoom, the wider the aperture opens allowing more light for the camera to focus properly. If the aperture mechanism is damaged, the auto-focus process may not work as it should; which would explain why the auto-focus feature works only when at 18mm.

Regardless, I strongly recommend you discontinue use of the lens until a professional technician can examine the lens and figure out what's going on. I'm sure you can contact the manufacturer to open a support case or you can find a camera store that offers repair services.

I hope this helps!

Unsure of how to use the extra functionality


That is the focusing ring. I'm guessing your camera is set to focus automatically (Little switch on the side of the lens should have settings for either AF or MF, or something similar.)

If its on AF, you don't need to adjust the focus ring.
However, if you have problems with the AF (sometimes it has trouble, especially in low light) you can switch it to MF, and focus manually by changing the ring.

As a general guideline, the more you twist to towards macro, it focuses closer and closer, and infinity futher away (if you're taking a shot of the moon, you want it on infinity)

Powershot S1 Digital Camera: Flash won't fire


Make sure the camera is not in Document mode . Document takes a picture with added contrast so text stands out. Make sure the camera is not set to Infinity focus . When you select Infinity Focus, the camera automatically turns off the flash and auto focus so you get sharp, clear pictures. Make sure the camera is set to Fill, Auto, or Red Eye flash. See your camera manual for details about setting the flash.

Switching from auto to manual focus


AF/MF (Auto Focus/Manual Focus) * The AF/MF function works in CAMERA, M.REC mode only. * In most situations, it is better to use the automatic focus feature, as it enables you to concentrate on the creative side of your recording. * Manual focusing may be necessary under certain conditions that make automatic focusing difficult and/or unreliable. Auto Focusing * If you are inexperienced in the use of camcorders, we recommend that you make use of Auto Focus. Manual Focusing In the following situations, you may obtain better results by adjusting the focus manually: * A picture containing several objects, some close to the camcorder, others further away. * A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow. * Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car. * People or objects moving constantly or quickly like an athlete or a crowd. Follow These Simple Steps To Set The Manual Focus 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button. M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus. Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again.

Landscape picture


You don't normally want to focus on infinity for landscape shots. Auto focus on mid distance between you and infinity [horizon or most distant object] while half holding down shutter button re compose your pic and shoot. Depth of field will help to ensure that everything is in focus larger F stop more depth of field. f2.8 minimum depth of field. This is digital, film is cheap :-) Using the same focus spot, take one shot at each aperture and decide which aperture gives the desired results in terms of sharpness, I think you will find that will be around f4. Then try different focusing spot [closer or further away] to adjust how much between you and infinity is in focus depending on the results YOU wish to achieve.
