Epson 850Z diopter adjustment

When I tried to change the viewfinder diopter control, it seemed very stiff and ineffective. After reading more in the manual I saw the warning not to attempt this adjustment with the power off. The camera must me powered up before changing the diopter adjustment. Now, after turning on the camera, the diopter control seems just as bad. I suspect I may have damaged it. The lack of a diopter control does not bother me, but it may be connected with some more important mechanism. Any opinions?

Re: Epson 850Z diopter adjustment

I did the same thing with the diopter, but no damage seems to have come of it. It does feel very stiff and 'clicky' anyway, but it does work. You will only be able to notice any adjustment to the diopter when the camera is on.

Why is the image in the view finder blurry


There could be several reasons.

The camera isn't focused. Adjust the focus.

The diopter is not set properly. Some cameras have a viewfinder diopter adjustment. This is similar to putting eyeglasses on the camera. Just as things will look blurry to you if you look through someone else's glasses, the viewfinder will be blurry if the diopter is not set properly for your vision. I wish I could tell you how to adjust this (or even whether your camera has it) but since you didn't bother to specify the model of your Olympus camera...

There's a diopter control near the viewfinder to adjust the viewfinder to your eye. Try adjusting that while peering into the viewfinder and try to get the focus brackets and the data at the bottom of the viewfinder into focus.

U have a Canon dos rebel cd, and the light meter and everything in the viewfinder is blurry, has anyone else had this problem, and how did you fix it


There should be a diopter adjustment control near the viewfinder. Try adjusting that while looking into the viewfinder.

If that doesn't do it, please feel free to reply to this post, specifying the exact model of your Canon Rebel.

I have a Cannon EOS Rebel xsi SLR camera. When I look through the viewfinder the image is blurred. IT worked fine the last time I used it, but this time it is blurred and I haven;t been able to correct...


Two possible situations. It might be that the lens focusing system isn't working. Try focusing by hand (turn the lens manually) If the image moves through a point of sharp focus, then you have a lens or focus motor problem.
More likely, you have improperly adjusted the diopter. There is a small, circular wheel on the right side of the viewfinder, toward the top corner. It is sometimes covered by the rubber viewfinder hood so you might not notice it. This adjusts the diopter correction in the viewfinder and if it's set wrong, nothing will ever look in focus. The pictures would be fine, but since the diopter is a correction for your eyesight, the viewfinder will be out of focus.

The electronic viewfinder will not focus. Photo results, however, are properly focused. LCD properly focuses, but I prefer to frame my pics using viewfinder. What's the fix?

Can't see symbols in viewfinder of a Pentax ist dl.They are completely blurry and unreadable


There's a diopter adjustment lever just above the viewfinder. Adjust it while peering through the viewfinder. This may be easier if you remove the rubber eyecup.

For further details see the "Adjusting the Viewfinder Diopter" section on page 39 of the manual.

Diopter adjustment and viewfinder problem


Hi
I would not attempt to open the camera for any sort of fix. It has weather seals in place and would recommend sending it in to Canon. If you have any warranties left it would void these. Lastly this is a high proformance bit of kit and you want to get is seen to by an Authourised Canon Dealer.

As for the diopter adustment. To be able to see through the view finder and see your subject clearly, take of the lens cap aim the camera and turn the little dial until the screen inside the viewfinder is clear it should not be fuzzy. You are only looking at the screen/gring and not the image beyond. This does not affect your image but does effect how clearly you see your subject through the viewfinder.

Hope this helps
