Question about Olympus Camedia D-425 / C-170 Digital Camera
What should I do if I cannot focus on a particular subject?
Posted by Anonymous on
If the camera is having trouble doing an auto focus you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance away from you, and then move the camera back to your original subject and take your picture without losing that focus. First turn the camera on and locate the AutoFocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away from you as the subject that the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, move the camera back to include the subject you originally wanted in the image, then press the shutter fully. (Please see page 20 in the D-425 Advanced Manual in Section 2, under the heading titled “If Correct Focus Cannot Be Obtained”, for a more detailed explanation. This Advanced Manual is provided on a separate CD, in Adobe PDF format.)
