I want to move my picture to the right. About 1/4 of a person or writing is not viewable on the left side of the picture


If the photo has already been taken, and the area to the left has not been recorded, then there is no way that the missing part of the image can be restored. If, however, you notice the area is not in the viewfinder prior to taking the photograph, the solution is simple - re-frame the image, so that all of the subject appears in the viewfinder. If necessary, step back a pace or two (being mindful of any obstructions or other dangers behind you) until the viewfinder shows all that you wish to record. It is better to leave an area surrounding the subject, which can be removed in pp exercise, than to crop detail at the taking stage.
If the problem occurs when you are printing images, ensure that your image-editing software is set up to display the entire image, and that you are not inadvertently cropping it.

Th e Viewfinder image flips upside down erratically. Meaning as I rotate the viewfinder it is suppose to flip upside down as it rotates towards the subject being shot. But lately it'; s started...


There is a switch in the LCD hinge mechanism that controls the image flip. It appears to be failing and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Appears in focus in viewfinder, but isn't


Change your focusing setting to spot focus. Then, focus on your main subject, keep the button half-way pressed while you re-compose the shot and then press it the rest of the way. Does that improve the shot?

Pictures are blur


Hi,

Your pictures are blurry because the camera did not focus properly on the subject.

First, turn on the camera in any picture taking mode (or video mode), then look at the screen or viewfinder. There should be four white corners in the center of the camera display. This is your targeting area.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Aim the camera at your subject so this center area is directly on it.

2. Press the shutter button lightly, not all the way down. Wait for a second or two WITHOUT RELEASING YOUR FINGER. If the white corners turn green, keep the finger on the button and press it all the way.

(Once the screen flashes black, a picture is taken and you can release the finger).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If the targeting area turns red and blinks, then the camera has not focused. You can to try to focus again by following step 1 and 2. If a picture is taken when the targeting area is red, then the picture will be blurry.

If there is no targeting area, then you can still focus by aiming the camera at your subject. Now follow step 2. A green box will appear on the subject, then a sharp picture can be taken.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The red arrow that flashes means that the pictures or videos are being written onto the memory card.

Also, try to be steady when taking pictures, because slight hand movement can cause blurry images too.

Page 25 in the DMC-FZ7's english manual will also explain how to focus.

Diopter adjustment and viewfinder problem


Hi
I would not attempt to open the camera for any sort of fix. It has weather seals in place and would recommend sending it in to Canon. If you have any warranties left it would void these. Lastly this is a high proformance bit of kit and you want to get is seen to by an Authourised Canon Dealer.

As for the diopter adustment. To be able to see through the view finder and see your subject clearly, take of the lens cap aim the camera and turn the little dial until the screen inside the viewfinder is clear it should not be fuzzy. You are only looking at the screen/gring and not the image beyond. This does not affect your image but does effect how clearly you see your subject through the viewfinder.

Hope this helps

Regards

A Question


What you are seeing is normal behavior for a rangefinder camera. The problem is called parallax error and it occurs with any camera in which the viewfinder is physically offset from the image sensor. As you may have noticed, the problem becomes worse as the camera is brought closer to the subject. You can either learn how to compensate for this, by rotating the camera upward slightly, or by using the LCD display to frame the image when you are closer than approximately 10 feet from the subject. The markings in the viewfinder may help you to judge how much compensation is necessary.

Pictures look further away than they seemed through the viewfinder


Like all point and shoot cameras, PhotoPC's viewfinder is not 100 percent accurate and will slightly magnify the subject. The actual picture will always appear to have been taken further away than what the user views through the viewfinder.

Metering modes


There are three metering modes: Digital ESP, Center Weighted Averaging and Spot. DIGITAL ESP - The camera meters and calculates the light levels or light level differences in the center and other areas of the image separately. CENTER WEIGHTED AVERAGING - The metering mode provides the average metering between the subject and the background lighting, placing more weight on the subject at the center. SPOT - The camera meters a very small area around the center of the subject, defined by the spot metering area mark in the viewfinder.

Viewfinder


Since the viewfinder sees the subject different than the picture taking lens, we recommend using the LCD monitor screen for taking macro pictures. The image previewed on the LCD monitor will be the exact image that is taken.
