When i press the button down half way, the camera doesn't want to focus and will zoom in and out and not allow an image to be taken. What is wrong and is there anyway i can solve this issue?


The camera is trying to focus, but can't. If you're trying to shoot something very close you may need to back away from the object. Try focusing on something in the distance to see if you can get the camera to focus and shoot.

I'm suddenly having an issue w/ my new D3000. When shooting, the image doesn't show on the screen. It does appear after shooting for review, but when taking the photo, the screen is black/grey. I haven't...


If you've really been seeing the image before taking the shot, then there was something seriously wrong with your camera which now appears to have fixed itself. The D3000 doesn't have the LiveView feature. The screen is for the menu and reviewing images you've already taken.

Blurred picture. Is worse when zoomed. Is not


Has the camera been dropped or hit on something? If so the lens could be out of line. Take it to a repair shop or start searching for a new one. I had a older model Kodak that a kid knocked it off a table and it never was the same. Forget trying to realign yourself, it takes an expert for that.

Canon S5 IS. I am having problems with Macro shooting. As I look through view finder, object seems in focus, but when I press focus lock button (halfway) the image jumps out of focus.


Dear Stefan:

Barring a malfunction with your len's autofocusing mechanism, the problem that you're experiencing is likely due to the limitations of the camera's focusing / zoom range in Macro mode.

You didn't say what ranges you were shooting from but basically, in order to get proper focus, you must first make sure you're within the proper lens to subject distance for the macro mode that you've chosen.

There are two macro modeson the S5, Macro and Super Macro. Macro shooting is done only within the ranges of 3.9 inches to 1.6 feet from your subject. SuperMacro mode (which is entered into by simply pressing the Macro button for one second) will only focus within the ranges of 0 inches to 3.9 inches. So if you are in either of these modes and stray from their focusing ranges, your camera won't focus properly.

Another issue that you may be dealing with is the very limited zoom range in Macro/Super Macro Modes. The zoom is basically meant to be set toward the maximum wide angle end of the zoom range. There is a yellow indicator bar below the Zoom Bar in the viewfinder that indicates the Out-Of-Zoom range in which the zoom basically can't be used. As you may see, only the first 10% or so of the zoom range is useable.

It might be that you could possibly be wavering in and out of the two macro mode focusing ranges and/or zooming into the Out-Of-Range zone during your session. Either can cause a similar effect such as you are describing. It's hard to say without actually being there.

To test this out I would simply set my camera on a tripod or other stand at a known fixed distance from the subject, set the camera to the macro mode indicated by that distance (either MACRO or SUPERMACRO), zoom out to the widest focal length and take the shot to see if it is clear or not.

If so, your camera probably has no problem. If it is still not focusing properly you might want to send it into the service center for a diagnostic. There is no charge to diagnose a problem with your camera and if nothing is found to be wrong you will only be out of the shipping charges spent to send the camera in to the service center. If a repair is needed, it can be done at that time.

Hope this helps you.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

The markings on the lens barrel are for macro mode purposes. When the zoom ring is set for 300mm that is the distance you are shooting at. It will zoom the barrel all the way out to 300mm if it needs to to help to obtain focus on the subject.

Hope this clears things up for you.

Taking pictures


You may have turned off the viewing screen mode. I've turned my off just to save the battery. There should be a setting/mode so that can at least scroll thru to view the images you've shot. As for the Busy Message my best guess is the memory cards full. My camera (a kodak) has the option to save images to a very small, useless internal memory or another card. Perhaps yours offers same - so switch to large memory. As for zooming in as close as you can, you may want to visit a state that's closer. Yea as you can see the zooms on the Point & Shoot cameras are very limited. Its only good for zooming into things that are just a very short distance away.

The minimum focusing distance


Shooting can be performed at a minimum focusing distance of 3cm. An approximate 2.1 cm x 2.8 cm subject can be captured on the monitor.

Shooting modes


The shooting modes are described as follows: PROGRAM AUTO (Factory default setting) Program Auto mode is used for regular photography. The camera automatically makes the settings for natural color balance. Other functions, such as the flash mode and metering, can be adjusted manually. Portrait Portrait mode is suitable for taking a portrait-style picture of a person. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Landscape Landscape mode is suitable for taking pictures of landscapes and other outdoor scenes. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. Night scene Night scene mode is suitable for shooting pictures in the evening or at night. The camera sets a slower shutter speed than is used in normal shooting. If you take a picture of a street at night in any other mode, the lack of brightness will result in a dark picture with only dots of light showing. In this mode, the true appearance of the street is captured. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. If you use the flash, you can take pictures of both your subject and the night background. Self-portrait Self-portrait mode enables you to take a picture of yourself while holding the camera. Point the lens towards yourself, and the focus will be locked on you. The camera automatically sets the optimal shooting conditions. The zoom is fixed in the wide position and cannot be changed. QuickTime Movie QuickTime Movie mode lets you record movies. The focus and zoom are locked. If the distance to the subject changes, the focus may be compromised.
