The flower signifies close up shots (making close shots focused). There is a flower button on the back of the camera (on the square button along with the flash and self timer). Push the flower to turn off this property.

The lens cover (protection) dont open. The camera turns on, but turns off rigth a way becose the metal protection dont open....


I have this problem also, I opened the front facia and unscrewed the cover and it worked fine initially but when I checked the other day it refuses to focus and switches itself off.. it is intermittant(?!) but only loads the menus when the focus becomes available (which is rare) and only lasts for maybe 2 shots if I'm quick. It's four years old so I guess it's something more deep seated at this point but worked fine up till now with no problems. I'm charging the battery to full to see if it's power.
I've tried http://www.fixya.com/support/t5272312-fe_4010_zoom_locked but no luck yet. I might try disassembling when I have time as I don't think it's worth paying to repair at this point.
Any other suggestions welcome.

Will Nikon D300 focus with the 11 point AF11 setting?


You may want to consider fine tuning the lenses. I understand that you want the shallow depth of field, but the lens is sharpest at the middle f stops. What is the comparison between a stationary object like an apple or grape (something with a circular shape). I understand you have a higher shutter speed, but the small movements of a person could cause variances in a single focus mode. Are you using the half-shutter press for focus or the AF-E button? Tripod? Remote shutter release?

I asked about the distance relative to the lens length because the DOF can really change based on this. I have found this recently with my macro work so I wanted to find out if you have experimented with this or fired a bunch of shots at a single setup.

Optio S6 does not focus


Hello everyone,

My english isn't great but i'll try anyway.
My camera is making strange noises too at start up
Like there is sand in the machinery that focuses the lense.
This wasn't a problem until a few day's ago when it wouldn't focus anymore.
Now, my entire family is using the camera so somehow the settings must have been changed.
The stupid thing is I don't know what I did but somehow I solved the problem by adjusting someting in the menu.
So it was/is a menu probem instead of a lense problem and it's working fine now.
Good luck and don't give up because it's a wonderfull camera.

Canon 40D focussing problem


Yes, I do have the same experience but it happens to be solved using the AI focus mode instead the single shot one. We also have to know that the AA of this camera is stronger than the previous generations of XXD cameras.
For the ones saying about not being as sharp as the point an shot, take into account that you can set the sharpening to be as strong as you want with a limit of 7 degrees of sharpening in camera. (but it only works with jpegs)

It appears you have accidently activated the macro mode. On the command dial, press & release the flower symbol (camera turned on and in shooting mode) until the flower disappears from the display. That oughta do it.

Canon 300d autofocus problem


Have you choose a correct "Focusing Point" by pressing the right outmost button on the rear of the body, just above the CF card compartment door?

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months...


I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:
**************************

Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which only takes effect in the creative modes (Manual, Av, Tv, P, etc)

There should be a button on your camera that has a grid like pattern above it, like
-
- - - - -
-

or so. press that, look through the viewfinder, and move the shutter or rear wheel, you should see the different AF points like up in red, and as you turn different ones will light up, and eventually all of them. also, you can look on the screen on top (or back, if its a rebel) and it will show you which ones are selected while in that mode, instead of looking through the viewfinder.

"it no longer takes pictures" i'll need a bit more information from you but for now my first suggestion would be to (if the camera still powers up) try testing the shutter by finding the "sensor clean" option in your menu. (i don't have mine in front of me at the moment, but it's usually one of the last options) first remove the lens and select the sensor clean option. if the shutter opens, then the camera body itslef should be fine. the camera will instruct you how to close the shutter after. be extremely careful when the image sensor is exposed like this, make sure not to touch it and be sure to be in a clean area (dust on your sensor will frustrate you beyond belief) now i've had problem after problem with this standard 18-55mm lens. if the lens can't find a focal point, it won't fire. try switching to manual focus and see if it fires. if while focusing manually there is any resistence or grinding, chances are your lens is shot perhaps from being dropped or there is debris preventing auto focus mode to find a focal point. "i've had my camera for about a year" if you bought it new and have had it under a year, it should still be covered by warrenty and canon will take it back and make repairs (they gave me a new lens when this happened to me)
