I have a canon xsi that I have been using successfully for a year and a half. All of a sudden the focus preview is not working. It doesn't matter what lens I am using. I shoot in manual mode. What I...


When you depress the shutter button halfway, you are (in fact) activating the focus mechanism.
If in AF mode, you should hear the 'beep' when focus is achieved.
However, bear in mind that the XSi has three focussing modes: Quick mode, Live View, and Manual. There is a difference in how focussing is achieved between the Quick and Live View modes. (see page 102 onwards of the user manual "using AF to focus").
Also, the barrel of the lens will move during the focus operation.
If this does not happen, then there is a definate problem.
Having images in focus despite having no movement on the lens, simply means that the aperture settings are probably small enough to give sufficient depth of field to include your subject.

You push the button and it will not take a picture. I put new batteries in it and it still will not take a picture.


My HTsi Plus never seems to be able to Auto Focus on a subject, so when you push the shutter button half-way, it just flashes the focus indicator (telling you it is unable to focus). Try switching over to the "Manual Focus" mode. On the front of the camera there is a button labeled "AF/M". Push that button to switch to manual focus. If the camera is in manual focus, the external LCD screen will say "M.Focus". Now try to snap a shot. If that still does not work, there may be something wrong with the camera or the lens. So, try using a different lens in manual focus mode. If it still does not work, then I would say the problem is with the camera itself.

The focus is very poor. Repeated pushing shutter


I believe you must had experienced this in Auto mode. This can happen when camera is too close to the object or coz of other problems. Didn't you try manual modes like AV or TV modes ?

I cant seem to get the manual focus to work on my vx2000


Are you sliding the switch from "Auto" to "Man" first? The focus switch is located at about the mid-point of the camera, just forward of the flip out LCD. The focus ring is the larger of the two lens rings, the one farthest towards the front of the camera. The smaller ring behind that one is the zoom ring. Also, make sure something isn't inadvertently pressing down the "Push Auto" button immediately below the focus switch - that can force the camera to autofocus even if in "Man" (manual) focus mode. Hope that helps!

Focus


Switch it on auto (or easy) first and see if focus works that way. If your on manual (or P) You have to use the joystick on the display to control the focus. All you do is push the center button on the joystick, move the joystick down to focus, press the center on the joystick and adjust it left or right. Press the center on the joystick when corrected.

Problem in Manual Focus of Canon Powershot A510


Some how it seems the auto focus- which in macro mode is looking at something else[because of parallax]is over riding your manual focus attempts. Check the manual carefully to see if there is a mention here for special things to do for close work or contact the Canon Technical Support

Camcorder won't focus


I hope I can offer a simple solution. If it doesn't work, then I'll I have to ask a few more questions. I know the GL has many buttons and settings and it can be confusing to keep an eye on all of them. Perhaps the camera was changed accidentally to manual focus? Can you check to see it is set to auto focus. If that isn't the case. When you say you can't focus, do you mean when you try to manually focus it, nothing happens?

Switching from auto to manual focus


AF/MF (Auto Focus/Manual Focus) * The AF/MF function works in CAMERA, M.REC mode only. * In most situations, it is better to use the automatic focus feature, as it enables you to concentrate on the creative side of your recording. * Manual focusing may be necessary under certain conditions that make automatic focusing difficult and/or unreliable. Auto Focusing * If you are inexperienced in the use of camcorders, we recommend that you make use of Auto Focus. Manual Focusing In the following situations, you may obtain better results by adjusting the focus manually: * A picture containing several objects, some close to the camcorder, others further away. * A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow. * Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car. * People or objects moving constantly or quickly like an athlete or a crowd. Follow These Simple Steps To Set The Manual Focus 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button. M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus. Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again.
