Check your diopter adjustment. It should be a small wheel on the upper right of the viewfinder. It is designed so that people who normally wear eyeglasses can use the viewfinder without their glasses, but it can occasionally get bumped. If the diopter adjustment is way off, it is like looking through someone else's eyeglasses!

How do you shut off auto focus on camera?


The focus mode selector switch is on the front of the camera, just below the lens release button. Switch it to the "M" position for manual focus, "AF" for autofocus.

My canon eos 300d will not lock onto autofocus, no matter which lens I use. Consequently, cannot take fotos using "A/F". (Works ok on Manual Focus) Help!


Clean the contacts on the camera body (and the lens, too) where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Will polaroid 52mm lens filters fit my panasonic fz45 camera


Your FZ45 accepts 52mm filters. You can use any 52mm filters you wish on this lens.

There are two types of polarizing filters: linear and circular. The linear polarizing filters are for film cameras and *some* digital cameras. Circular polarizing filters are needed by many digital cameras because the linear polarizing filter types interfere with the autofocus programs. If you shoot in manual focus modes only, it won't matter which you buy. If you do use autofocus, you ought to try the linear before buying - otherwise, purchase the circular polarizer.

I hope this helps! If it did, please rate my reply "4 thumbs up". Thanks!

I have a nikon d-40 is there a seeting on it that well let the cameras lens focus when you push the button half way down. I took picture but I had to manual focus I don't know if it the lens or this camera...


Any of the autofocus settings will attempt to focus when the shutter is pressed halfway. What lens are you using? If it doesn't have an internal focus meter, then the D40 won't autofocus with it no matter what. If it does have an internal motor, then check to make sure the lens is set on autofocus.

Check Custom Setting 12. If it's set on AF-On then the shutter button won't focus.

If this doesn't fix it, specify the lens and any other details.

Cannot take picture


Check the switch on the side of the lens, it should be in "AF" not "M". The switch turns the motor in the lens on and off. If the switch is set to "M" the automatic mode on the camera will not work.

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down


Hello,
It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.

Autofocus off


Is this when you are trying to focus on something close up? If so you want to go into Portrait mode (turn dial to little head) then hit down arrow on the wheel once to MF mode (manual focus), then use the left and right arrow to focus specific inches or cm.
