Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera
The focus is not clear at all especially when I zoom in.
Do you focus and then push the shutter button half way down to lock in that focus? Then all the way to take the picture?
Do you support the camera on a tripod or kneel down and support your arms on one knee or lean against some object to keep the camera steady> You can even press your arms tightly against your body before you focus and shoot. And be sure to press the shutter button very gently when you shoot so the camera will not shake or move.
Do you have the camera on the right mode for the photo you are attempting to take? Such as night/macro/action/ etc. Try taking photos on just the automatic mode to see if you can get focused shots. Make absolutely sure your camera is not in Macro mode ( a picture of a little flower on the screen) unless you are doing extreme closeup shooting.
Go to your menu>then setting> then set your camera back to default settings if you can. Or if you are unsure how the camera is set. If you do not have your manual you can go to the Canon website at www.canon.com and click on support or downloads and find the manual for your camera and download it. That may give you the answer you need as well.
Please get back to me if you do not have any luck and send along more info such as camera age.
