Re: IESP auto focus
IESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-8080 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-8080 Wide Zoom, the AF target mark automatically moves to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.

Auto focus for an for digital cameras have a nasty habit of that, do what I do, and my Auto Focus works too, but I use Manuel focus all the time, and I shoot professional golf....I never auto focus nothing....my eye is faster and better than the lens.
Not sure of you camera model, but the flash will fire momentarily when you try to focus indoors as there is not enough light for the auto focus to work. This is so the camera can determine a distance from the subject to the camera. This is called focus assist (ref to your manual). It will work outdoors as there is enough light and contrast for the focus to work.
Kit lenses included with the camera are notoriously known not to focus well in dark conditions.
It depends on how long you have owned the camera, but I find it doubtful that it would be waring out. Sometimes after messing with the auto focus buttons my camera no longer focuses on its own, I then reset the settings and re-select auto focus. This always fixes my problem. I hope you find a solution. God bless...
I had the same problem. My issue was with all my lenses. I solved it by going to the menu and selecting the custom setting menu (pencil icon). Then from the right menu select the AE-L/AF-L and press OK. Then make sure it is set on AE/AF Lock. Presto...all my lenses worked on auto-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.
* If you are inexperienced in the use of camcorders, we recommend that you make use of Auto Focus.
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.
