Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

Canon Ixus 75 Auto Focus fails. It appears to be trying to focus and the small box appears on the screen showing where it it trying to focus. I think it's always focussing very close up. Macro is not set. Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for getting back to me on this. Unfortunately the problem is happening for all types of shots. It's not focussing in cases where it previously would have.
    The Auto Focus Assist Beam is set to ON.

This usually happens when there's not enough contrast between the subject and the background or the subject itself is too 'flat'.

Also if there's not enough light in 'flash off'-mode you cannot focus. Try using the focusing assist light.

Hi there, I don't know if it's a problem or not (I can live with it :) ). I just got a Canon EF 50mm f1.8 II lens, and I really love it. But: When I'm using the eye-level viewfinder (and not...


You may just have the left auto focus points selected. You don't say which camera model you have. If on the back of your camera you can see a button with an icon showing 5 small white blocks in a plus sign in a white box press this to select the auto focus points. It should show the available auto focus points and then use the left/right (wheel) button to change the selection

How to do a close up shot?


  • If you mean you want to know how to zoom (bring distant things closer): on the back of your camera (on the screen's side), near the top, there will be a couple of buttons marked "T" (meaning Teli: brings closer) and "W" (meaning Wide: covers a wider range) pressing the "T" will bring far images closer.
  • If you are referring to taking pictures of objects very close to the lens: Find the option called "macro focus" (commonly accessed by pressing the "left" key while in normal photo mode) this will let your camera focus at very small distances (about 5cm from the lens)

My Canon EOS 450D shows busy while trying to click on AF auto mode and it does not click at all.


There are several contributing factors to this problem and I'll try to list a few that may be the cause.
All Canon EOS camera auto focus modes us contrast to focus this means simply that no contrast there is no focus. There is a small green dot in the lower right corner of the viewfinder that will come on and stay on solid when auto focus as been achieved. By default the shutter will not operate "click" if auto focus has not been made.

Here are a few examples of where auto focus will ether search (focus back and forth) or fail completely.

A solid painted wall, glass between the camera and subject, mirror, chrome, any large body of water, clear sky. Another place you wouldn't expect is clear skin in your subjects face or body.

Cameras with multiple focus points and set to other then the middle will have a problem if the photographer is still attempting to use the center focus point.

Look for the green dot in the lower right corner of the viewfinder that's your focus confirmation.

Rectangle in led screen green/ or yellow with exclamation


The camera doesn't have anything to focus on - especially if you're shooting the sky. The auto focus needs something with fairly defined edges to work. Try to focus on the edge of a well defined cloud, or focus on a tree or similar, half depress the shutter to lock the focus, then move re-frame your shot. Alternatively you can use manual focus. Hope that helps

Canon 75-300mm USM III, was initially working fine


Hi
you seemed to have a problem with the camera (auto-focus) mode. I suggest you try shooting in manual focus only but consider taking it to a canon service outlet for proper checks and service as a long-term solution.

Camera won't shoot with lens on Auto Focus


Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.

1. Make sure you are holding the camera very steady when you take the photo.
2. Try increasing the number of pixels resolution to super fine. If this uses too much memory, invest in a larger capacity memory chip. (The one supplied with the camera has a fairly small capacity.)
3. According to the manual, the "portrait" mode softens faces, but there are other modes you can use.
4. Depth of field is pretty much WYSIWYG . Move back and forth and try with and without optical zoom until it looks right.
