DSC D700 Focus Problem

Some reviews found that the optical viewfinder of DSC D700 has problem. We cannot check if the view is in focus or not. Can we use the dipotic adjustment dial to solve the problem?

Re: DSC D700 Focus Problem

The dioptic is for the vision-impaired operator, and does not affect the photo's focus in any way. Adjust the Dioptor so that the green numbers in the view finder are in focus. With this adjusted I have not seen any problems with the view finder.

Yes, many people can use the diopter control to fix the manual focus set-up. Others have had to send the camera back to Sony for internal adjustments.

VIEW SCREEN IS SO BLURRY I CAN'T TELL WHAT ITS SHOWING.


Is it the viewfinder (that you hold up to your eye) or the screen that's blurry?
If the viewfinder is blurry, there should be a diopter adjustment to fix it, probably right above the rubber eye cup.
If the screen is blurry, you should take some pictures and video and view them on a computer. I they are sharp on the computer but blurry on the camera screen, there may be a problem with the screen and you may need to take it in for repair.
If the pictures are blurry on the computer as well, the camera may not be focusing properly. If you can't focus manually, or the camera can't focus when auto focus is turned on, you have good light, and aren't too close to your subject, then it may need to be serviced.

Unable to focus image in viewfinder


There is a little wheel nest to the viewfinder on the camera. It is called something like dioptric focus (forgive me I am going off of what I heard pronounced) and it allows you to manually set the focus to your eyesight. Just adjust the wheel while looking through the viewfinder and you should be set.

View finder


Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.

Sony DSC-V1 optical viewfinder has a horizontal line in it


It shouldn't be there, but as the optical viewfinder is completely separate from the photographic light path it's nothing to worry about either.

Normally it's caused by either a hair or fibre which has somehow entered the viewfinder (rare) or more commonly by a fine scratch across the front window to the viewfinder. Also check the rear viewfinder viewing lens as the same damage could occur there but as that lens is relatively protected it's unlikely.

Any further fixing involves dismantling the DSC-V1 and possibly sourcing spares made of purest unobtanium so if the camera works perfectly well then leave the screwdrivers safely in the toolbox for now.

No image on lcd


This is not a problem. This is how the camera is designed to work. It is an SLR and you must view the picture you are taking through the small viewfinder not the LCD. It simply reflects the camera settings,etc. I too was thinking it was a "viewfinder" and a bit disappointed that it wasn't. Oh well.

View finder focus


Is there a little black wheel or anything beside the optical viewfinder that turns? If there is, turn it until the image comes into focus.

DSC-T7 Magnify Mode


Hello, Don't mix magnifier mode and expanded focus mode. Magnifier mode is simply a short AF range operating mode, like a kinda super-macro. Whether you selected mag/macro/normal, the camera operates always same except that the focussing range limits are changed accordingly by the S/W. The lens itself is capable of focussing from 1cm to infinity anyway. Expanded focus is used on some still and video cameras to assit manual focus because the LCD's resolution is lower than the CCD's. It can be seen as a workaround for the lack of optical reflex viewfinder (Sony cams ar not dSLRs, including HDR-FX1!). So the center area of the pic is "digitally zoomed" to make sure you can adjust a sharp focus of the point of interest in your frame. However it has nothing to do with macro shooting, and works at any distance within the lenses focussing range. Hope having helped
