Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Focus Problem Dear folks, I just bought a (new) Canon A75, and it doesn't seem to focus. At all. Even on manual focus, not only can I not get it to focus properly, the focus doesn't change at all. When on AF, it doesn't beep like the manual says it should, and the yellow light blinks, as it's supposed to when there's a focus issue. The focus assist light is working. Can anybody think of anything I should try? The manual is of no help. This is my first digital camera, so I'm not ruling out the possibility that I've got something in the wrong setting, but if so, I can't figure it out. Yes, I've made sure it's not set to macro. Any ideas? --Thanks

I'm not sure on the problem, but one thing to check on the front of the A75 it also uses an IR beam to set focus. It's a little circular dot under the flash on the right side. It will light up red when in use to project the IR beam. Make sure you don't have it covered up. That's my best suggestion. Hope it might help.

I have a canon xsi that I have been using successfully for a year and a half. All of a sudden the focus preview is not working. It doesn't matter what lens I am using. I shoot in manual mode. What I...

When you depress the shutter button halfway, you are (in fact) activating the focus mechanism.
If in AF mode, you should hear the 'beep' when focus is achieved.
However, bear in mind that the XSi has three focussing modes: Quick mode, Live View, and Manual. There is a difference in how focussing is achieved between the Quick and Live View modes. (see page 102 onwards of the user manual "using AF to focus").
Also, the barrel of the lens will move during the focus operation.
If this does not happen, then there is a definate problem.
Having images in focus despite having no movement on the lens, simply means that the aperture settings are probably small enough to give sufficient depth of field to include your subject.

Does not focus corrcetly

Go into the menu, setup menue, hit the reset. This will clear everything that has been set in the menues. If the focus still doesn't work than it is the cameras

Canon Powershot SX10 IS auto focus unreliable

I don't this its an error. I have used this Canon SX10 IS Camera for nearly a year now I haven't had this kind of problem.

Usually auto focus take few seconds to focus on object depending on distance and lighting. That might be the problem ?

Have a canon digital elph sd750. Pictures are now blurry.

You could have cracked the lens, damage the focus or a number of other things but the lens and focus are most likely. check your lens for scratches if there is none and no cracks take it to your nearest camera store or buy new good luck!

I can't get the macro adapter to work ?

Put the macro adapter on the camera and move the camera in and out from an object to try to focus the object in the display. Remember, macro is very small, very close and very small field-of-focus. I hope this helps.

5d focus confirmation light

Just a wild guess, but in predictive AI focus mode you need a subject in motion for focus to lock and focus adjustment is continous until the exposure is made, in one-shot AF or manual focus mode focus will lock on still subjects. Super nice camera btw.

Canon Powershot A75 blurred LCD display

It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
