Occasionally it is necessary to have the ability to manually focus a digital camera. A good example is shooting through the windows of a tour bus on a rainy day. The camera may choose to focus on the raindrops on the window rather than the actual subject. To enable the MANUAL FOCUS function hold down the OK/MENU button for a second or longer. In the lower left corner of the LCD screen you will see MF (MANUAL FOCUS) and AF (AUTOFOCUS) with AF highlighted in green. Use the left arrow key to select MF. You will now be able to use the up and down arrow keys to manually focus the camera. An added feature of the C-5500 is that when you are using the MANUAL FOCUS Mode you will see a magnified portion of the image in the center of the LCD screen. To get out of MANUAL FOCUS Mode, simply use the right arrow key to reset the camera to AF. Then press the OK/MENU button to return to the default functions.

I have a haninex 800 dlsinstdual 8 I can load it but do not know the controls to zoom,focus,etc

If this has a motorized zoom and focus then it will be on the remote listed as zoom and focus or on the hard buttons on the projector itself. If you don't have this feature then you must focus and zoom manually on the lens itself. There will be two tabs or rollers that you make these adjustments with this.

Is it possible to manually control the focus on this camera? (Konica Minolta Maxxum 400si SLR 35mm Film Camera) I need to be able to manually control the focus, apeture, and shutter speed for a film...

The description of the manual focus is available in part 2 of the manual, page 40. The manual is available as a PDF here: . It is the seventh camera in the SI series in the list.

To manually focus the lens, press the focus-mode button on the front of the camera (bottom left when you are behind the camera) until M. focus appears in the data panel. If you have an AF lens, turn the focusing ring until the subject appears sharp. If you have an xi-Series or AF Power Zoom lens, pull and turn the lens control ring.

The focus indicator will light when the subject is in focus. To return to autofocus mode, press the focus-mode button again. The camera will also return to the autofocus mode if you press the program reset button.

I hope this helps.

(in manual focus, you can take a picture even if the subject in the focus frame is not in focus. Often it means you need to take multiple pictures to get a good shot of the subject. The advantage is that you can get some interesting shots.)

My wide zoom lens for my D200 will not auto focus..

Mine occasionally does this as well, but only when trying to focus on the left side of my viewfinder. I found there is a piece of dust on the sensor in just the right quadrant that prevents it from focusing. Try setting your focus settings so that you can press the left or right buttons to select the focusing quadrant (left, middle, or right). If that fails, you can always manually focus.

Auto focus at full zoom not responding Nikon D80 with 18-200mm VR

Hi - I own this lens and it manually focuses at all focal lengths (hard to see at 18mm unless your subject is extremly close). You may need to get the lens checked. BTW - Mine was set as follows when I checked for you:
  • D80 was "on"
  • M/A
  • VR = Off
  • Normal (not Active)
Hope this helps!

Losing focus

Usually this is a back focus problem; also called a flange back adjustment.  If the back focus adjustment is possible on this camera, zoom out wide - open iris all the way - and adjust focus and lock position.

Can I manually control the zoom and focus?

Yes. Zoom can be controlled either by a variable speed rocker control, or a zoom ring on the lens. Focus is either automatic or manual via a focus ring.
