Are you sure you did not activate "Manual Focus"?
Near the shutter button, there's a "Focus" button. maybe you pressed it accidentally and now you're in "Manual Focus" mode.

If so, press it once more to get "Multipoint" mode back to life...

And read the camera manual. It's a goot place to look for this kind of answers.

How do I set my sl620 to selective focus.


Your camera is a point and shoot. This means the camera does auto focus when you want to make a picture. The focus point is in the square in he middle of the screen. The only thing you can change is when you want to make macro pictures. The camera will try to find a focus point within 2 or 3 feet.
Ion some scenes, the focus will differ just a little, like in sports, it will try to be automatic.
The trick every professional photographer uses, is place the focus point on the part, you want to have in focus in your picture. Then press the shutter release button half and wait till the camera is in focus. Then reframe the picture as you want it to be. Then press the button fully. Just as described on page 31 of the manual.

How auto focus


Most camera's, and the Olympus to work the same with auto focus. You place the AF target o the place you want to focus on. (the part that should be in focus in your picture) then press the shutter release button half and wait tip the AF conformation mark lighter up on the view finder. (the little round in on the bottom left) Then frame the picture as you want it shot and press the button complete.
I'm not sure your lens has a AF / MF switch, but that should be on AF all the time.
When you use non AF lenses, your cmarea can't focus automatically.
It should work fine with the kit lens. (lens that was originally delivered with the body)

Why won't my fugi finepix s4500 won't focus sharply ?


No good working auto focus can have many causes.
Like the camera is in Macro mode, or manual focus. The best thing to try, is to switch your camera to the auto mode. The camera logo on your mode dial. And then shoot some pictures. There should be enough light and contrast in the frame, on the place you want the camera to focus on. Sometimes you have to chose an object, with enough details and contrast, on the same distance as the object you want to take a picture of. Then press the shutter half way, till the camera is in focus. the indicator lamp next to the mode dial glows green. Then frame the picture like you want it taken end only than press the shutter completely.
If the camera does focus correct in the auto mode, then you can check, why it did not focus before.
Check page 19 of the manual, to see how to use the shutter release button, for correct focus.

My Vivitar takes blurry pictures. Kindly show me what to do to sharpen the focus. Thanks.


To focus on your subject, lightly push the shutter button (the button you use to take pictures) only half way down. When you push the shutter button half way down, this auto-focuses the camera and you can then fully press the shutter button to take your picture.

Auto focus problem


Well, if all the software is ok, maybe the button is damaged and not able to give the two modes any more. If the camera has done it´s fair share of pictures, maybe it needs some repairs... since you´re the first that I personaly have heard is in this situation.
Mechanical things get broken more easily than we want, I guess. I´d recommend a repair shop for your camera and let us know how you ended up, please.

Auto focus problem


If you set the camera on "manual", it assumes you focused manually and allows you to press the shutter without having to stop half-way. Check your settings.

Be sure you are on auto. Pressing the shutter release down half way causes the camera to focus. This needs to happen to get a clear picture. Be sure you have adequite light or the auto focus will not work. You might need to set your flash to auto as well . Them by pressing the shutter release the rest of the way down, you will get a picture. But gain, you need to allow it to focus first, then take the photo.

I can't get my Pentax Z50P film camera to automatically focus.


Remove the lens and clean the contacts between the body and the lens with a pencil eraser. Make sure the camera is on Autofocus mode. If these don't solve the problem, take it to an authorized service center.

Focus Problem


I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject may look in focus in the viewfinder, but is not. When you fully depress the shutter in one motion (rather than pressing half way first), the camera will attempt to focus before it takes the shot. If you are not careful about camera movement, you may inadvertently be focusing on something other than what you intended. My camera (and it seems all digicams) has trouble focusing in low light, so you definitely want to use the half press in such situations. Even then, I don't always get the focus correct. Thank the digital Gods for instant feedback! Personally, I almost always use the half press method. To get the 740 in manual focus, you hold the "OK" button down until you see the viewfinder display a focusing scale. It takes a second or so. You should also see "MF" and "AF" designations in the lower left corner of the viewfinder when the scale displays. Use the left and right arrows to select the focus mode you want (i.e. MF or AF), then use the up and down arrows to adjust the focus distance. You'll notice that the area you are focusing on is enlarged when you use the up and down arrows.
