Optio 30 Focus Problem

I have a problem with the focus not working on this camera. We are on our second camera and both have had the focus stop working. This camera has taken great pictures so far, but if it is going to be problem prone then I need to find something else.

I cannot get a clear pic...FOCUS on a ring. Have Pentax optio 60 camera and the top setting is on "S".

Switch to macro mode. Press cursor-up (marked with a flower) then select Macro (the flower icon). This mode is used for close-up photography. For full details, see "Setting Focus" on page 28 of this manual.

My Pentax Optio W10 camera takes some out of focus photos. What do I do to solve this problem?

Your camera has the option for manual focus. This option allows you to focus the camera to capture what you want, rather than the auto-focus feature.

This will be indicated by a MF in the top center of your camera screen. You should be able to change this by finding record mode and changing your AF settings. Change your MF to the [ ] option and you should be on auto-focus settings.

Hope this helps.

Focus not working

Set your camera to factory default settings and try it again. Make sure it is not on Macro setting.

Optio S6 does not focus

Hello everyone,

My english isn't great but i'll try anyway.
My camera is making strange noises too at start up
Like there is sand in the machinery that focuses the lense.
This wasn't a problem until a few day's ago when it wouldn't focus anymore.
Now, my entire family is using the camera so somehow the settings must have been changed.
The stupid thing is I don't know what I did but somehow I solved the problem by adjusting someting in the menu.
So it was/is a menu probem instead of a lense problem and it's working fine now.
Good luck and don't give up because it's a wonderfull camera.

E10 can't focus in dark places

The focus mechanizm does nee to 'see' what it is looking at. Check you manual see if there is a setting for fixing the focus so thatr the camara can shoot from near- about 2m to infinity without the focus operating.

Optio S - low light autofocus problem

Using "spot" focusing area insted of "multiple" works best in low light (and I guess it gives you the best results in any situation).
