Why can't my brand new Meade Polaris 127 telescope not even show me stuff in broad daylight or night. No matter the lens, eye piece, eye, object near or far. I only see eyelashes sometimes if I try.


I suspect that what you have is a combination of two problems:
1. you are very far out of focus,
and
2. you have too much magnification.

Here's what I would do.

Point your scopt at some distant trees. Use your lowest power eyepiece, and run the focus all the way from one end to the other. At some point, you should see the tree leaves....

My NikonD3100 is no longer focusing, my battery is charged and I am at a loss


Make sure you're using a lens that worked before on this camera.. many consumer bodies lack the built in focus motor, so you must purchase lenses that have the motor built into the lens. If it lacks a motor - no auto focus will be possible.

Remove and re-seat the lens.

Make sure that any Aperture ring on the lens barrel is set to the smallest (largest number f22) possible.

Make sure any and all Auto / Manual Focus switches are set to A or Auto.

Try taking a picture in broad daylight - or other well lit area - if the subject is very dark, the auto focus will struggle or "hunt".

Let me know if these suggestions solve your problem - good luck!

My a930 polaroid does not focus well at all what can I do??


This could very well just be the nature of the camera-- are you attempting to take pictures in low light? This can cause difficulty for the camera to focus. If the camera is having trouble focusing in broad daylight, then there is likely some problem with the autofocus system that would need to be examined by a camera repair shop. The repair on a point and shoot camera like this one would likely exceed the value of the camera.

New out of the box Cannon 550 with a 18-55mm 3.5 - 5.6 lens and I can only focus in the wide angle shot. The zoom to 55mm is out of focus even when set to AF and an automatic setting. Am I doing...


In automatic mode and automatic focus - The camera should focus onto the subject given that there's enough contrast between your subject and the background. If it not focusing at all even in broad day light conditions - You lens is faulty.
Also - Do you or your friend have another lens to test if the camera is faulty?

My 300D wont lock on a point in its AF setting


If you are unable to focus in broad daylight and it just hunts through the whole focus range without locking, then it sounds like a problem with sub-mirror pin (also called the second mirror pin). My 300D just had this problem and I had to send to service to get fixed. I sent to http://www.keh.com/ as they were at least $50 cheaper than going straight to Canon. Just got it backed and it works like a charm again.

DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?


I don't own a T7,but I have the P150 and S40. All these small Sony digicams have something in common;Sony uses 1/40 as the default flash shutter speed in low light conditions,while other makers use 1/60.You are more likely to get a blurry picture compared to other digicams you have previously used,unless you hold the camera steady (two hands). The other thing about these cameras is their lack of weight, coming in at a mere 134 g/4.7 oz. Light weight means you must hold the camera steady (two hands) or risk camera movement when you press the shutter. Again, the tendency with a small,light weight camera is to hold it with one hand while you take a picture,this leads to blurry pictures. The review for this camera is positive; a "Dave's Pick." - Just remember the flash range is only 5ft / 1.6m. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/T7/T7A.HTM

Photoes are not sharp


Hi, I have never had focus problems with my FX7. I suggest you set the AF mode to 1-area-focusing. This mode is quicker than the 9-area-focusing. To eliminate any possibility that the blurry photos are caused by camera shake, I also suggest placing the camera on a tripod (or setting it down on a flat surface) and using the self-timer to release the shutter. At this point you can also turn off the image stabiliser. A well lit outdoor subject is probably preferable for this test, as low contrast scenes sometimes cause the auto focus problems. If the photos under these conditions are still blurry, then you probably have a defective autofocus. Otherwise...
