The camera uses a precise auto focus mechanism, but under the conditions and with the subjects described below the auto focus function may not work well. Subjects moving at high speed Very shiny subjects such as a mirror or car body Extremely low contrast subjects (such as subjects dressed in the same color as the background, etc.) When there are objects in front of or behind the subject (such as an animal in a cage or a person in front of a tree) Subjects with little reflection, such as hair or fur Subjects with no solidity, such as smoke or flames Subjects viewed through glass In addition, the focus is set on the center of the frame, so if the subject is not at the center (when shooting two people standing side by side, for example), the focus is adjusted on the background and the desired subject (the two people) may be out of focus. In such cases, do the following: Point the camera so that one of the persons is at the center of the viewfinder. Half-press the shutter button. (The focus is locked on the person.) Holding the shutter button in the half-pressed position, reposition the camera to achieve the desired composition. Take the photo. If the focus cannot be adjusted, it is locked to infinity (1.5 meters when using the flash).

Nikon l120 focus is off

I don't know what your perception of proper focusing is.
If there is enough light and enough contrast in the subject you want sharp (in focus) on your picture, you only have to point the camera to the point you want in focus on. Then you press the shutter release button half and wait till the camera is in focus. This is indicated by the focus point on top of the screen. as long as you keep the button half way down, you can move the camera and the focus will not be changed. So you can make changes to the composition. Then when you press the button down complete the picture should be sharp, where you focused on.
Don't try to make a picture, by pressing the button complete. as quick as you can, because the camera won't react as fast as a DSRL.

AF 20mm f:2.8 D don't autofocus accurately. It focuses always behind the focus point.

http://www.dofmaster.com/dofjs.html
Make sure that your dof is in the right range for your chosen f value and that your focus settings are set correctly in your camera.....some of the older nikon lenses do not have proper data and will not focus properly on any camera and must be focused manually. That being said 20mm is fairly wide and it is not overly complicated to manually 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?

There's a diopter adjustment control near the viewfinder. Adjust it while peering through the viewfinder until the image suits your eyes.

My Fuji S5100 now fails to properly focus. I have

1 ensure that your camera is not set in Macro mode test by taking a picture of a subject very close up ie. 10 - 15 cm if the image is in focus then you may be set in macro mode.
2 if lens is removeable ensure it is fitted properly. remove the lens and refit ensureing the connectors are clean.
3 ensure the switch on the lens or camera is set to AF for auto focus.
4 suspect autofocus sensor is defective if you try to focus on subjects which are close and far away and you do not hear to camera re-setting the focus then it is in manual focus or the focus sensor may be defective or in need of adjustment.

5 recommend specialist have a look at this problem.

Jason 313 telescope doesn't focus properly. Can

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

The moon should be your first target.

Focusing problems

Many things can cause this problem. Here are some ideas:

First be careful not to block the Focus assist light with your left hand while holding the camera.

Some setting won't let you properly focus (like being in macro mode from too far away).

Pentax IqZoom 700 film camera E9 error shutter failure Hi, I have a pentax iqzoom 700 that I'd like to repair myself but E9 appears on the lcd screen after inserting a new battery and powering on. Other posts mention this is a shutter failure. When turning on, the zoom lens extends and the outer shutter covering the outside of the lens opens. I've read tutorials that say you can sometimes fix a shutter error by causing a power outage during a shot and opening the battery door while taking a picture, but this isn't possible in my case because no shot is fired when the shutter is pressed, likely because the camera recognizes the shutter failure. I've also watched videos on how to repair leaf shutters and mechanical shutters, but the manual for this camera states the shutter is an AE between-the-lens shutter so I have no idea how to disassemble and fix this sort of thing. Looking thru the lens both thru the front of the camera and in the film compartment on the other side show a dark covering behind the lens even while the outer shutter is open covering the outer lens, which I'm assuming is the between-the-lens shutter. Ideally, I'd like to repair this myself, as there's nothing lost if I screw up and it's not worth it otherwise to take it for repair. I'm a complete novice with absolutely no prior knowledge of taking apart things, but I can follow directions so any suggestions or links to videos/tutorials would be very much appreciated Side note that I've searched the web extensively and have yet to find anything specific to repairing this camera model, and I'm not knowledgeable enough to adapt a tutorial for a different camera to this model Thanks in advance!
