Question about Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom Digital Camera
I did not realize the serious problem with manual focus on this camera until this weekend when I tried to take some shots of myself with my friends. Please don't tell me to look at the instruction manual - I did and I followed the instruction. I set the focus mode on MF and used "up" and "down" buttons to adjust the focus distance. The LCD screen gave no indication of the focus status at all. It did pop up an enlarged image showing (supposely) how well the image is focused but I changed the setting from infinity all the way to close up position with no clear showing of the differnce. Do any of you have the same problem? Is this just the way it functions? Is the design this crappy?

Yup, the Oly C5050 MF leaves a lot to be desired... What I did was to use the AF to get a focus lock then while still holding the shutter half way I would change focusing mode to MF - it will keep the distance value of the AF... Hope this helps...
