Won't focus properly on auto focus.


Depending on your lens, you may have an AF/MF switch. Make sure it's set to AF for Auto Focus. Try increasing your light levels. Does focus work in a good light setting?

You should have a button that looks like a matrix. Press this button to set your focus point. Use the joy-stick like wheel to select the focus point. Press it to select Auto Focus points.

My pl1 camera has blurred pictures but when lens taken out, its ok.


Are you using an auto-focus m4/3 lens? I have about 20 lenses for this camera and only 1 of them is an auto-focus m4/3 lens. I have an adapter so I can use my 4/3 lenses on it in auto-focus mode along with other various mounts (including cctv) that do not support auto-focus. So if you are using a non-auto-focus lens, you will need to manually focus the pictures.
If you are certain it is an auto-focus lens, are you sure you have it set to auto-focus?
What settings do you have your camera set to (aperature mostly is what I'd like to know)? Try adjusting your aperature to be small (to increase your DOF).
Also what lens are you using and what is your focal distance? It could be your lens has a larger or shallower focal distance than what you are trying to achieve (like a macro lens doesn't work that great for landscape photography or a telephoto lens doesn't work great for macro photography).
Last thought: is your lens or sensor dirty? A dirty lens can cause focusing issues if it is REALLY dirty and a dirty sensor can too (sensor is a bigger pain to clean. I strongly recommend taking it to the pros as they scratch really easily). Dirty lenses can be cleaned with a blower and a lint free cloth and rubbing alcohol if those 2 things don't clear it out.

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.

MY CAMERA (CANON 1000D) TAKES BEAUTIFUL DAYTIME PHOTO'S BUT CAN'T SEEM TO FOCUS ON A SUBJECT IN LOW LIGHT & AS A RESULT WONT TAKE THE SHOT. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO TAKE LOW LIGHT / NIGHT TIME SHOTS ?...


Focusing in low light can be difficult for the autofocus system and sometimes you will need to use the manual focus, you can select the magnified image and see if that helps
See the online manual - page98 refers to how to magnify the image - using the magnify button - changes between 5X 10X and full screen
To help the camera autofocus there is an assist beam - this takes the form of flashes from flash to help the AF system focus - make sure it is ON - there is a custom function full details on Page 157 C.Fn III: Auto focus/Drive 6 AF-assist beam firing

Sounds like you may not be in "Auto" mode. Press the "Func/Set" button, then press Right or Left to select the "Auto" mode.

The auto focus and the manual focus are not


I have a similar problem. The focusing joystick has just stopped working. Been trawling the net for weeks trying to find a solution (out of warranty, typically). Have you had any luck solving your problem?

Nikon auto focus lens not working, only in manual


What camera body? This lens doesn't have an internal focusing motor and thus will not autofocus on the D40/D40x/D60/D5000/D3000.

Auto Focus not working


It depends on how long you have owned the camera, but I find it doubtful that it would be waring out. Sometimes after messing with the auto focus buttons my camera no longer focuses on its own, I then reset the settings and re-select auto focus. This always fixes my problem. I hope you find a solution. God bless...
