Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

Autofocus off How do I adjust the autofocus feature on the device. I can see when the lens moves, it passes through the focus point. I could lay out a tape measure to see where it is in focus if necessary.

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.

Why does autofocus keeps moving in and out on some slides


The autofocus system isn't really "autofocus". It is a measuring system - you manually focus the first slide, which sets the distance from the front of the slide in the gate to the back of the projection lens. By the focus motor moving the projection lens, subsequent slides will maintain that same distance. Continuous focus adjustment suggests that:
1> The curvature of the slide is changing because of the varying heat absorption rate of the transparency.
2> The autofocus system is out of calibration.
3> The autofocus system has a bind (it is being restricted from free operation).
About the only thing a user can do is to make sure ALL slides are oriented the same way in the tray. Beyond that, you will need a service manual and 2 or 3 specialized tools. Parts and tools can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com

Nikon d5100 Blurry photos When I take photos of a party, at night, my photos are very blurry. How can I fix..


Use autofocus if you have a AF lens on it.

Usually you get a kit 18-55 AF lens that has a A/M switch on the side. The switch should be facing the A side so it's set on autofocus. Then you have 9 points on your viewfinder, those are the autofocus points. It should usually be set to center, because you usually want the object in center of your photo to not be blurry.
Remember to press the shutter button halfway and give some time for the autofocus to focus. Then you can press it all the way, you should have your photos nice and clear.

If you happen to have a manual focus lens, you should be watching through the viewfinder and turning the focus ring on the lens and determine if your object is in focus. It's hard at night, but get some practice at home when you have some more light so you get more familiar with the focus.

Why wont my Nikon af nikkor 70-300mm G lens autofocus its self with my D5000 camera


The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens to have one. The old 70-300mm G lens does not have a focus motor, relying on the camera to have one. Thus, this combination will not autofocus.
The newer 70-300mm AF-S G lens, as well as the even newer 70-300mm VR AF-S lens, do have the autofocus motor and thus will autofocus on the D5000.

Bought a Sigma DG 70-300mm 1:4-5.6 autofocus for my Nikon D40. When the lens is attached the settings get locked on MF. Is there anything I need to adjust to fix this problem? Charles


The Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG will not autofocus with the D40 since the lens does not feature an internal focusing motor (HSM). The D40 does not have an AF motor in the body and hence it can autofocus only with lenses featuring an integrated motor (eg. Nikon AF-S lenses, Sigma HSM lenses, Tokina DX II series etc). Unfortunately you can use the said lens only in MF mode.

Nikon D300 - Auto focus point won't move. Autofocus doesn't work.


The lock that's around the 4-way button that moves the AF point will stop it from moving. The AF switch (says C,S,M) on the body below the lens release button gets knocked to manual and turns off the AF

Autofocus on my Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 EF IS fails


Hello. First, check the contacts on the lens mount--you're looking for bent pins, oxidized(odd-colored) metal, damaged contact points, etc. The camera must communicate reliably with the internal circuitry of the lens unit. If there is any dirt, moisture, intermittent contact going on, the sensitive focusing electronics will be effectively blinded. If all is fine with the contacts, then the problem lies with the circuits in the lens that provide critical focusing data to the camera. Movement of certain parts causes electrical changes to occur at a calibrated rate--if the camera loses connection, it can't tell if the lens is actually adjusting. You'll have to send the lens in for repair--http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportIndexAct. This address should get you started.--Hope I helped!---Rick

Will not operate in the autofocus mode


kmarcum,
Take the camera off auto focus,if the shutter fires and you can manually focus, then the lens must be repaired. Take the lens to a camera repair shop and get an estimate.

Canon 400d constant backfocus


Backfocus problems will be magnified when using wide aperture lens with shallow depth of field, nice lens btw. Camera's adjustments for manual and autofocus are inside mirror cage behind mirror, and you dont want to risk getting dust on sensor or damaging sensor. Qualified camera repair shop or sending to canon for adjustment would be my suggestion.

Canon 300d autofocus problem


Have you choose a correct "Focusing Point" by pressing the right outmost button on the rear of the body, just above the CF card compartment door?

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months...


I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:
**************************

Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which only takes effect in the creative modes (Manual, Av, Tv, P, etc)

There should be a button on your camera that has a grid like pattern above it, like
-
- - - - -
-

or so. press that, look through the viewfinder, and move the shutter or rear wheel, you should see the different AF points like up in red, and as you turn different ones will light up, and eventually all of them. also, you can look on the screen on top (or back, if its a rebel) and it will show you which ones are selected while in that mode, instead of looking through the viewfinder.
