Blurry pictures


You did not say which lens or lenses you are using, but most auto-focus lenses have a switch for selecting manual or auto-focus. First, check your camera's menu settings to make sure auto-focus is enabled and then your lens to make sure you did not accidently leave it in the manual focus position? If it is in the auto-focus position and still not taking sharp pictures, switch it to manual and see if you can get it to focus correctly. It is also possible that your auto-focus alignment is out because your camera was bumped, jolted or dropped. If realignment is necessary, you can send the camera and lens to Nikon for repair or find a knowledgeable camera repairman.

Getting Better Pictures From Your Nikon D90


I'm a professional PGA Photographer out here on the West Coast. I've been photographing for over 40 years. A few years ago, I bought a Nikon D90, after over 50,000 photos, I've came up with the conclusion that Manual Focus and Manual Shooting is the best. Program, A, S, Landscape, are all good, but, they are not consistence all the time. The same with Auto Focus, I can not tell you how many times I'd line up a photo of a Pro Golfer and my Auto Focus moves in and out of focus, and I miss the shot. So, now I use the Auto Focus to start and as soon as it's sharp, I reach over and turn my lever back to Manual for the shot and any refinement focus as well. Manual exposure is needed as well, as the Program modes will not be consistence from shot to shot. I meter the subject, take a test shot and change my setting manually. That way the exposure is the same. Hope this helps

What is aif on the canon 9g one shot camer


It is one of the autofocus schemes Canon uses. If you did get the manual, P121 discusses how to set the size.

They do not officially define it other than as one of the auto focus modes between "face detect" and "Center" focus. Center focus is just that- a single focus beam down the center of the lens. The AiAF is a larger target area, and essntially each of the 9 blocks you see when you set your camera is a location where a focus beam will be.

It is a part of the fuzzy logic of the camera that uses the light metering strategies as the framework for the focusing strategies for lack of a better description. So maybe a better pnemonic would be "Activity in Auto Focus."

I own a Nikon D5000 and am experiencing issues with the 55x200 lens. When trying to take a picture (on auto mode) of an item that is too close, I am hearing a squeaky noise (like the noise made my a VCR...


The 55-200mm lens does not focus closer than 1.1 meters (3.6 feet). If the subject is too close, then the autofocus tries and fails to focus or keeps trying (and squeaking). Either way, you won't be able to take a picture. In manual focus, you can take a picture but it will be out of focus and blurry.

Every lens has a minimum focus distance, closer than which it will not focus. Some lenses focus closer than others. It's a matter of design; making lenses focus closer makes them larger, heavier, and more expensive.

If you want to take close-ups, you have several options. You can buy close-up adapters that fit onto the front of a lens. You can buy a special close-up lens ("macro" or "micro" lens). You can buy extension tubes to fit between the camera and a lens.

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.

I've seen that before and in my experience it's usually due to the autofocus motor going. Your best bet would be to contact the Canon Imaging in your country and see what they suggest you do.

I have the same problem. I can make it temporarily work by manually turning the focus ring until it is out fully. Then it will auto focus and take photos until I turn the camera off or it times out. Then I have to repeat the process. It's annoying, but at least it works for me. Try it and post to let me know if it works for you

Canon Digital Rebel XT auto focus


Auto Focus does not determine exposure. Only sharpness. "Wrong" exposure could be due to the metering mode being set in Spot Metering. Set it back to Evaluative Metering which may improve the overall even exposure of your shots. Test your shots in full auto or P mode. M (Manual) mode will require you to check the exposure setting manually (you can see the indicator in the viewfinder when you half-press the trigger)

I suppose you really can't do much when camera is set to Auto Focus? All you do is aim and shoot? Everything is set up for you. Not so sure about limitations on manual focus. Don't you have different setting when shooting indoors? Good luck.

Konica Minolta Dimage 7 delay in start up and shot down procedure Hi, I have a Minolta Dimage 7 Digital Camera SN91202050. I'm very keen in electronics and I have its service manual (45 pages). Few months ago, I upgraded the firmware to ver 2.01e. (I read the full compatebility notice before installing). The camera worked so fine. I've got about 2000 jpgs And the last day I took about 200 jpgs in a very short period of time. So I was enforced to exchange the batteries during the snapshots. I'm using 2500mAh MiMH Kodak batteries. I noticed that the grey front right hand part of the camera is a little bit overheated. The next day, and after the camera returned to its normal temperature, I tried turning the Main Switch/ Mode Dial from OFF to Recording Mode, after putting a completely charged batteries. Unfortunately, I heard a small sound "Tick" then nothing happened else, the Data panel stayed dim(unlit) and with no data, and no red indicator had seen, also the monitor LCD didn't start. I didn't hear the noises which the camera should give in normal conditions. I left the switch as is, few minutes later, the camera continued the startup procedure, as I heard the noises and the Data panel lit in green and it displayed the normal status. I made several snapshots and everything were going well. I turned the **** to playback mode, I have seen the entire snapshots I did. Which mean tha the CF card is working well. Also all the other knobs were working properly. Then I decided to turn the camera OFF. Again, the LCD monitor turned OFF directly, but the upper Data Panel was left ON!!! And I heard "tick" Few minutes later, it turned OFF automatically. And I heard the same noises in the normal manner. 1-Does that mean the main board had a cold welding point? Or, the board was affected in the earlier overheating. I tried to use the transformer instead of the internal batteries, and I found this same situation. Delay in the turn on and turn off. And also the delay period is the same. 2-Does that mean that some chemical capacitors were damaged? ( wich capacitor should I replace?). 3- Does that mean there is a cold welding in some points beyond the processor in the MAIN PCB ASSY(0402) due to the frequent humidity and overheating? N.B I tested the internal backup battery, and it gave 3.24V (it's ok) Kind Regards, Soubhi Sabbagh Email: s.sabagh@aloola.sy
