Hi Ref: Digital Camera - Pentax K200 model It keeps auto focusing when in manual mode. Regards Chris


Putting the camera in manual mode still doesn't change the focus routine. If you want manual focus, there is a switch near the lens on the left allowing AF (auto focus) and MF(manual focus).

Hi I bought my canon 1000d on september 2009 and a year later the autofocus doesnt want to work. In the viewfinder on the far right a number 9 has a green dot flashing next to it. Please help!! Ruthven...


The 9 you see is the maximum "burst" which is (pictures made in rapid succession) and is not an issue with your problem at this time the flashing green dot is the in focus confirmation light and it's good that you are seeing this as we will use it to remedy the problem.

Manual focus switch

What I want you to do is put the AF-MF switch in the manual mode if it's already in manual mode then that was your problem switch to AF and go take some pictures. If it's in AF mode switch to MF make sure teh camera is on and look through the viewfinder at a subject say 15 feet (4.5 meters) away something that has contrast then turn the manual focus ring on the camera slowly until it appears to your ey that it's coming into focus when it's in focus the green light will come on solid, now you know what you are looking for focus an several different objects at different distances and focus manually. Now switch the lens over to AF (auto focus) and focus on the same thing but let the camera do the focusing What auto focus will not focus on in something with little or no contrast like water clear blue sky a painted wall mirror chrome glass and a few other things.
Here is another diagram to check make sure you are in the correct mode.

Now for the focus point in the viewfinder make sure it's in the center position.

To adjust the focus point do this

Once you have the camera set to the center focus point and the correct AF mode (one shot) auto focus should return to your camera. Have fun Robert from London Ontario Canada

THE AF AND MF ON THE LENS MEANS WHAT


AF=Auto Focus. With an autofusu capable body, the camera will automatically focus for you using preset focusing zone. Move the Switch to:
MF and it becomes a manual focus lens, where the photographer has to manually focus on his subject.

There is a [MF - AF] switch on the camera body where the lens attaches to it.
Move the switch to the AF selection.

AF = AutoFocus
MF=ManualFocus

My 18-55mm lense will no longer auto focus. Possible sand issue? How can I get it cleaned/repaired???


The D40 has a AF / MF switch next to the lens.. It may have been moved to the MF (Manual Focus) position or in-between the two settings.
Move the switch back and forth to both settings a couple of times and then set it to AF (Automatic Focus).

Not sure if you have other lenses, but this is the solution if you only have this lens or it's the only one you cheched.

Hope this helps!

Manual Focus won't work


Which camera are you using? If the body has AF/MF switch, put that also to MF.If this fails to help, take out the lens and try to change it to MF.

Auto focus not working


Your Sigma 28-300mm doesn't have a HSM-motor as far as i know. When you switch it from MF to AF, you also have to disengage the manual focusing ring by pulling it towards the camera, or pushing it away from the camera. Using the AF without unlocking the manual focusing ring may damage the AF motor. 
I hope this helps,

Switching from auto to manual focus


AF/MF (Auto Focus/Manual Focus) * The AF/MF function works in CAMERA, M.REC mode only. * In most situations, it is better to use the automatic focus feature, as it enables you to concentrate on the creative side of your recording. * Manual focusing may be necessary under certain conditions that make automatic focusing difficult and/or unreliable. Auto Focusing * If you are inexperienced in the use of camcorders, we recommend that you make use of Auto Focus. Manual Focusing In the following situations, you may obtain better results by adjusting the focus manually: * A picture containing several objects, some close to the camcorder, others further away. * A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow. * Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car. * People or objects moving constantly or quickly like an athlete or a crowd. Follow These Simple Steps To Set The Manual Focus 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button. M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus. Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again.

Focus modes


There are four focus modes: S-AF (Single auto focus), C-AF (Continuous auto focus), MF (Manual Focus), and S-AF/MF (Simultaneous mode). (SINGLE Auto Focus): Focusing is performed once when the shutter button is pressed halfway. C-AF (CONTINUOUS Auto Focus): The camera repeats focusing while the shutter button is pressed halfway. (MANUAL FOCUS): The function allows you to manually focus on any subject while looking through the viewfinder. SIMULTANEOUS USE of S-AF mode and MF mode: You can fine-adjust focus manually by turning the focus ring after AF is performed in the S-AF mode.
