Re: Does the camera have parallax correction?

The Epson R-D1 uses automatic parallax correction. Just set the frame selector lever to match the focal length of the lens being used to automatically correct parallax.

When i take a picture although i centralise an object in the centre if the screen, when the shot is taken it moves downwards and off centre? why is this?


I presume that you're using the optical viewfinder and taking close-up photos.

If so, then your camera is fine but you are making a simple mistake. What's happening is called "parallax error". The viewfinder lens does not see exactly the same view as the camera lens because it's slightly higher and off to one side. For most subjects greater than a few feet away the error is insignificant, but for close ups it becomes a problem. Many optical viewfinders of your type will include framing lines. These show the approximate image which will be taken at distances of more than a few feet, and may have a second set of stubby lines to show where the image will be cut off during close-ups.

Your fix is to simply be aware of parallax error and allow for it when composing your images.

I hope that this has answered your question; if so then please take a moment to rate my reply. If it hasn't then please add a comment with any additional detail you think will help and I'll try again when I'm next online.

My sony a230 pictures are not centered its the middle target is more to the left, how can i fix this?


I had the same issue. I believe that our cat knocked the camera off of our coffee table, a distance of only 16 inches or so. I searched the Internet for any possible solutions but found nothing specific. I did see some comments on parallax issues. I tried everything I could think of and finally resorted to sending it to Sony for repair. I am still waiting to get it back from Sony but the repair only cost $108.00 including return shipping. Sony called me last night and informed me of the progress. It was a little hard to understand the gentleman but he said it was something to do with a "shooter" part. My recommendation is to send it to them for repair.

Zoom pictures lower than what see in viewfinder


That's normal...it's called parallax error because the view finder is not in the same plane as the lens. Why don't you use the LCD screen to compose your shots?

Auto focus


If you were doing close up- did you switch to Macro? do bare in mind that in close too situations, the focus sensor it looking at something different to the viewfinder[Parallax syndrome]

Problem in Manual Focus of Canon Powershot A510


Some how it seems the auto focus- which in macro mode is looking at something else[because of parallax]is over riding your manual focus attempts. Check the manual carefully to see if there is a mention here for special things to do for close work or contact the Canon Technical Support

Blurry pictures


Try differential focus That is point to something near the distance you want- half depress the button -turn to subject complete the press down Bear in mind that if the subject is really close to the view finder is not looking where the focus window is-Parallax- learn to shift you frame slightly to allow for this.

A Question


What you are seeing is normal behavior for a rangefinder camera. The problem is called parallax error and it occurs with any camera in which the viewfinder is physically offset from the image sensor. As you may have noticed, the problem becomes worse as the camera is brought closer to the subject. You can either learn how to compensate for this, by rotating the camera upward slightly, or by using the LCD display to frame the image when you are closer than approximately 10 feet from the subject. The markings in the viewfinder may help you to judge how much compensation is necessary.

The pictures I take with my Kodak digital camera are not clear


One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below. The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model. The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures. The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range. The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.) You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error. The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
