There is a little knob to the left of the viewfinder called the diopter adjustment. Turn that.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

When using the viewfinder the image is blurry, however, the image is crisp when using the LCD monitor.


If the image is clear on the LCD and you can take sharp pictures, then your main optics and electronics are good. Your camera has an adjustable viewfinder. Check the manual to see how to adjust for your vision.

There is a small knob to adjust the image through the view finder.

Refer to the manual if you cannot find it.

View finder


Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.

Image through view finder is blury


Hey DarsCanonFix,
This camera does have a diopter adjustment on the viewfinder to correct for bad eyesight. I would try adjusting this since it could have been accidentally set incorrectly. If this doesn't work the camera might just need a good cleaning by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Whats wrong with my viewfinder?


I don't have my camera with me, so I may be off on the exact placement, and I hope I'm not telling you something you already know and the problem is worse, but on the left side of the viewfinder itself is a tiny dial that adjusts the focus. Just look the the viewfinder and play with the dial to adjust to your eyesight.
