There is a little dial to the left of the viewfinder that you can turn to adjust the focus of the viewfinder. This should solve your problem quite easily.

Canon Powershot SX20 IS camera...only 4 months old. The LCD display no longer works so I have to use the viewfinder. I bought the black tie protection warranty from Best Buy but they say I have to send...


I'd send an email to Canon, directly. Or call. You may be surprised to find that it could be covered by them, not Best Buy. I have three Canon cameras and I find that they have superior customer service. Quick and inexpensive - and sometimes at no cost. . Give it a try.

I have a canon powershot sx20..looking through the view finder looks blurry,but after takingt the picture and looking on the screen the picture does NOT look blurry...It's only blurry when looking through...


Your camera is equipped with a optical diopter that will allow you to adjust the optics in the viewfinder to your eye. meaning bringing everything into focus as it should. The way I use this (set it) is to let the camera auto focus on a subject and then turn the diopter until I see the subject clearly.
It really helps if the subject is about 12 feet away (get it real sharp) and the camera is mounted on a tripod. Once set I put a little dot of paper white out on the diopter adjustment knob so if it gets turned I know and can quickly return it to the correct spot. I'm including a diagram where this adjustment knob is on your camera, have fun.

When I look through the eye hole of the Canon Rebel t1i, the view and numbers of the eye hole are blurry even though everything is auto focused, and when I take the picture, it's clear. Why is the eye hole...


There's a diopter adjustment knob just to the right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder at a blank wall until the numbers in the viewfinder appear sharp. This knob allows the camera to adjust for individual eyesight.
