Re: focus with nikon cool pix 4500

You can find these steps on page 119 of the manual here.

To do this follow these steps:

  • Choose a program2.gif mode
  • Press the Menu button
  • Goto the bottom of the menu list to choose Reset All
  • Select it and reset all settings
This might have to be done for each program mode.

There's a diopter adjustment control near the right edge of the viewfinder. Look through the viewfinder at a blank wall and adjust this until the focus marks appear sharp.

It may be as simple as a wrong selection in your menu, check that it's not on 'Macro' as this will not focus normal distance. good luck

Every time i take a picture with my nikon d-40 the pictures are blurry. the camera is on auto focus but i can't seem to get the picture to come out clear. any suggestions?

Is your shutter speed fast enough? If not, you'll need a faster shutter speed or a tripod.

Are you using the proper focus sensor? Is the entire image blurry or just portions of it?

What happens if you focus manually? If it comes out sharp, then there's a problem either with the lens or the autofocus system on the camera. Have you tried it with a different lens?

Is the AF switch on the lens set to A?

40 DX - blurry pics

The lens is out of focus or the shutter speed is too slow, to determine if this is a defect or failure, mount the camera on a tripod and use the self timer or remote cable (if you have the remote cable) to take exposures while autofocusing on a neutral colored object such as a beige item,

if they're still blurry then manually focus the camera and try again.

If they are still blurry and your Nikon has a diopter focus adjuster (this is typically in the rear next to the viewfinder where you focus your eye), set the diopter to neutral and manually focus again.

If they are still blurry, remove the lens and using a cloth dampened with high percentage or denatured alcohol, clean off contact rings since this is where the lens and the camera body communicate and transfer focus data.

If they are still blurry, then use the same cleaning method for the contact ring of the camera body.

If they are still blurry use a different lens and repeat the first two steps.

If they are still blurry then you may have a smudged and dirty sensor, this is the part which actually registers the image and should be cleaned by a professional.

If you are so brave to, you can use the cameras feature to lock the mirror and expose the sensor, this is typically only done to perform a dust cleaning using light blasts of clean air and using solvents on the sensor is dangerous.

If you choose to do so anyway, use a bright flashlight and look for anything that appears to be smudging, if it isn't apparent then your camera or lenses are likely in bad need of maintenance.
