Out of focus

New camera suddenly went out of focus. The image and viewfinder are out of focus. This happened while my son was using it in our car so it wasn't dropped or damaged in anyway.

    I have the same problem with my camera - Samsung S1030. It won't auto-focus on any of the modes. If you turn it on and off a few times it may auto focus again for a while but then will go back to a blurry image.

    Out of focus seems to stretch the picture,color seems to be just light and dark,It's hard to make out some of the objects in the picture.

    I would like to give a big "Thank You" to Scargo with the dioptic tip. It is Xmas day and when I grabbed the camera everything with blurry in the viewfinder no matter what I seemed to do. Google sent me to this chain and his suggestion to the original problem listed was right on target for me!



    Thank you for keeping my holiday merry and forever captured in focus!

    My display is blurry and the pictures come out VERY pixely/blurry. Have tried all settings. Camera was only used a couple of months.

If there is a diopter adjustment, for the viewfinder (to take into account a person wearing glasses) then that may have been changed and images just appear out of focus(in the viewfinder) when in reality, they may not be, if the camera is in autofocus mode.
Check these settings. Since I do not know what kind of camera this is I cannot be sure whether this diagnosis is valid.
What do the images look like when you download them?

The electronic viewfinder will not focus. Photo results, however, are properly focused. LCD properly focuses, but I prefer to frame my pics using viewfinder. What's the fix?


There's a diopter adjustment control near the viewfinder. Adjust it while peering through the viewfinder until the image suits your eyes.

Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully...


Check the mirror. The image you see in the viewfinder comes through the lens, and is reflected by the mirror. If it's dirty, it will affect the image you see. When you take the picture, the mirror lifts up, the viewfinder image is interrupted, and the light from the lens goes to the image sensor. So...if the mirror is dirty, the picture will be fine but the viewfinder image will be dark or out of focus.

Unable to focus image in viewfinder


There is a little wheel nest to the viewfinder on the camera. It is called something like dioptric focus (forgive me I am going off of what I heard pronounced) and it allows you to manually set the focus to your eyesight. Just adjust the wheel while looking through the viewfinder and you should be set.

My d40 has a image in viewfinder, will not take picture


It sounds to me that you are using an incompatible lens or a broken one. Does this happen with the lens that came with the camera?

LCD monitor does not show image you are focusing on....


The camera is a Single Lens Reflex. It is not possible to use the LCD as a viewfinder. Canon answers that question here: CanonUSA

Blured viewfinder


Look at the viewfinder on the camera.

Now look on the LEFT side of the viewfinder; just above the swivel-screen.

You will see a little thumb wheel there.

That is the focus for the viewfinder. Move it up and down to bring the viewfinder into focus. (Don't forget to do this while you are looking through the viewfinder so you can see what you are adjusting.)

Easy fix. :)

D50 After autofocusing stops it still isn't quite in focus.


Your diopter may not be adjusted ( adjustment for sharpness of image in viewfinder on the side of the eye-piece ) so set that first and then try again. If this is correct then your camera is focusing accurately ( on the sensor ) but only the image in viewfinder looks unsharp.

Viewfinder


There's a little scrolling wheel to the left of the viewfinder; move it up or down until the image is clearest.
