I recently bought an optio555, and I'm a little dissapointed with the quality of the focus. Especially pictures at range infinity seem slightly out of focus; objects at a smaller distance (< 5 meters) are usually OK. Apart from that, objects at the left of a picture are much 'less sharp' than objects in the middle.
As I'm not sure what the 555 is capable of, I was wondering if I have a defective camera, or too high expectations

Re: Focus problem with optio555
I think you have a defective camera. I have the 555 and none of my pictures ever look out of focus like that. Especially since those are outside with lots of light. They should be crystal clear. The colors don't look too goood either. Have you just taken it in P mode and let the camera choose all the settings? Have you possibly set some settings that have changed what the camera came with?Something is not right.

This is due to settings change Please switch the focus mode to multi point focus or any other current setting will be center focus or spot focus that is why only the center is focused and the rest is blurry Please refer to your fuji manual for instructions on how to change the focus mode
Thanx and i hope this solves your problem Please dont forget to rate this information
You are dealing with "depth of field", or simply put (?), the range from near to far of an image that appears in focus. To increase the depth of focus, the camera must be set to a smaller aperture (higher numbered). Using a wider angle lens helps also. Focusing on the mid-point (near to far range) will also increase the apparent focus range. This is one of the most complicated photographic issues, and much has been written about it. Google "depth of field" for about 4 million explanations.
This set has 3 CRT's (picture tubes)
Remove the back bottom cover
Clean the CRT's with windex and a soft cloth.
(Find the Screen/Focus block)----Remove front grill cover and panel which covers the Screen/focus block.
Cover 2 crt's and adjust the focus control for remaining crt---(using the convergence pattern in the menu for the set)
adjust for the best focus.
cover that crt and move on to the next crt using the same procedure.
After setting the focus on all 3 tube's you will have the best focus possible for this set. If picture is still bad, you have bad crt's and the set is junk.
Cost to replace the CRT's is enormous!
I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.
The little white ring on around the lense, that is the focus on the camera. Now the other issue with picture quality is the camera itself. I believe this camera only 1.3 mega pixels to get a less blurry higher quality pic u should use a higher mega pixel camera
That is the focusing ring. I'm guessing your camera is set to focus automatically (Little switch on the side of the lens should have settings for either AF or MF, or something similar.)
If its on AF, you don't need to adjust the focus ring. However, if you have problems with the AF (sometimes it has trouble, especially in low light) you can switch it to MF, and focus manually by changing the ring.
As a general guideline, the more you twist to towards macro, it focuses closer and closer, and infinity futher away (if you're taking a shot of the moon, you want it on infinity)
I read in another Toshiba forum where some users were putting a small piece of electriacal (black) tape over the flash sensor, and their indoor photos with flash turned out spectacular, since it allows the camera to apply more light . Actually fools the camera but it works. You might want to experiment with it..
