    i have a similar issue, I cannot get the little green numbers inside the eyepiece to be in focus. The look like green blobs. Moving the adjuster to the right of the eyepiece doesn't seem to help. My pictures are fine, but since I am new and learning, I'd like to know what those green blobs say :)

    I started experiencing the same thing. When I look through the eye piece it's blurry, yet my pictures seems to come out ok (if I use auto focus). Any ideas?

Use the diopter adjustment to refocus the viewfinder to your eye.

Point the camera at a sign or something with writing on and half press the shutter button to focus then move the little adjuster at the top right of the viewfinder until the image in the veiwfinder is in focus

My 18x50 IS binoculars are broken; the right eye piece won't focus and I hear a clunk inside when I turn it over; the left focuses just fine. What can I do and where; here in las vegas?


Sounds like you've dislodged one of the prisms inside. A service center can look it over for you, but from personal experience, it's cheaper to replace them than pay to ship them to/from the service folks plus the estimation fee just to find out that they'll have to be replaced, anyway. Sorry.

I am having a problem with my new Pentax DA 50-135mm 2.8 lens not focusing


Hi Ally,

It sounds like you may have commanded the camera to use one of the other 10 focus points in the viewfinder. There are 11, total with one in the very center, and the rest around it. It looks like this:



1_31_2012_10_59_28_pm.gif

Page 130 of the manual begins a discussion of Auto Focus. Page 133 details how to change the focus point. If you like to center the subject in your veiw finder & pictures, you should select the center focus point if it is set to one of the others. You may still have dark or soft pictures if the shutter needs to stay open too long. You can reduce the exposure time by bumping up the ISO to a value of 400 or 800 or more - as limited by you liking. The higher your ISO goes, the less time required - but the more grainy the image is.

Good luck!

When I look through the view finder window. Everything that I see is out of focus...even the little numbers at the bottom. The pictures come out fine in Auto focus, but in any other mode, I can not tell...


Okay looking at the back of the camera where the viewfinder eye piece is right side upper corner you will see a small wheel partially covered by the rubber rim of the viewfinder by the side of it you will see a small line with a + and - that is a diopter that actually tunes the camera viewfinder to your shooting eye. Pretty fancy eh? Anyway what I do is set the camera in auto focus and focus on an object in a brightly lit room and when the little green light come on in the lower right corner of the viewfinder which is the auto focus confirmation light start turning this wheel one way and another until the image you see come into sharp focus. I don't know about you but I need about three clicks to the + side before everything looks sharp.

I have dorpped my 18-200 lens and now the O.S. system motor very noisy and eye finder view shows picture jumping can this be repaired ? if so how much will it cost, auto focus works fine


The only solution is to locate a repair shop and have them determine if there is anything that can be repaired. You don't say what manufacturer the lens is from so I cannot direct you to a shop or manufacturerer's site for repair information.

If the lens is not an expensive model, you may be better off replacing instead of repairing it. These lenses are complicated, rather delicate pieces of gear. There are many plastic parts inside and they really do not respond will to being dropped.

Sorry . . .

My gs500s colors are bright pink and i tried changing white balance and nothing works


Try going into "reset" master mode. otherwise you need to make sure your camera is shooting on the right setting for the light you are using. For example, when shooting in daylight with interior light setting (approx. 3200k) your photos will look off color and yellow or pink because sunlight is 5600k approx.,. . . contrary while shooting indoors with incandescant lighting if the camera is set for sunlight exposure (5600k) the picture will look blue. Make sure you read the manual on how to white balace, but first take the camera out of AutoExposure settings to do all the settings manually. Auto focus and auto exposure are for rookies and these types of errors will happen. Always try to do manual iris and manual focus for best results zoom in and get your focus on the subjects eyes then zoom out and frame up your shot.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

View finder in samsung VP- W90 very blurred. Focus not the problem.


If the focus is blurred on the view finder, assuming you are talking about the eye piece and not the lcd, then it is a out of focus issue. Even though when you view it it's ok. Some cameras still have a focus knob somewhere to focus the eye piece.
