I hope you can help me resolve this. Seems that sometimes when ever I turn the camera on, the image on the LCD screen is out of focus & will remain that way until I either power cycle a few times or remove the batteries for about 5-10 seconds & then turn it on. It can't be the batteries because I have the same problem with new batteries installed. Any idea what may be causing this.

Considering your camera is in good working order go to the menu and look fot the option to turn on sounds if they aren't already on.
With your camera set to auto, aim it at your subject and partially press the shutter button. At this point you may see the image on your screen change from blurry to clear as the camera auto focuses. Usually a green light will appear on the screen and sometimes a sound will signal you that the camera is focused and ready to shoot.
You must wait for the camera to focus and give you a signal before pressing the shutter button fully. Give it a try and practice with different situations and backgrounds as focus time will vary between sceens.
you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera time to
lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? If not, the good
pictures were just luck.
The overall image is out of focus If Pan focus is being used, the image may be out of focus; use Auto Focus Mode. Pan focus uses a focus range of several feet, so the image might be blurry but will be captured faster. This could occur in the EX-Z30, EX-Z40, EX-Z50, EX-Z55 and EX-Z57. If digital zoom was chosen and the image becomes unclear, only use optical zoom, and move closer.
Did you check the firmware version? If it's not v. 1.02, then get it at the Kodak support site and flash that firmware to your camera. If it is 1.02, then you may try to reflash that same firmware. Sometimes this helps strait'n out things.
I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.
Canon will resolve this problem free of cost as per announced Canon CCD Advisory. Your
Canon A95 has problem with CCD Imager and this part will be replaced by
Canon Support free of cost. Click above said web link to get details. Have a nice day.
you may find that manual focus gives you the best result - you can also use the focus bracketing (it takes 3 pics - one either side of what you have selected) will give you sharper images. dont forget that the best resilts will come when the camera is supported!
You can use the LCD and just zoom in loads until you can see minute details and you can then see if you have a good focus....
Defective ccd imager!! company will replace this ccd imager free of charge. Year 2002 up to 2005 released unit has a factry defect ccd imager. the company recalled these unit and replaced with a stronger version of ccd imager( they are still doing it). check it out.
What mode is the camera in? is it in "Auto" at the top there is a dial switch it to auto and press button halfway (shutter button) when you press the button halfway the camera will beep and display a square box on the LCD. If the camera beeps once and the box is orange it could not focus and you need to retry pressing halfway again. When it is in focus it will beep 2 times and it will show a GREEN box. This is the indication it could focus on the subject correctly. Its a machine and sometimes it takes it a bit for it to figure out what your wanting it to do. Its the nature of the unit
Yup, the Oly C5050 MF leaves a lot to be desired... What I did was to use the AF to get a focus lock then while still holding the shutter half way I would change focusing mode to MF - it will keep the distance value of the AF... Hope this helps...
