Olympus SP-550 UZ won't focus properly most of the time. Focus point should be infinity since my subjects are seascapes, sunsets and clouds. I've tried all 3 AF focus modes but none work consistently. I can get it to focus sometimes if point the camera at the ocean first. I've even tried manual focus but it won't focus to infinity. This camera is practically new, has never been dropped. Is this a known problem with this camera? Is it a settings problem (I've reset the camera to factory settings

I cannot get my camera to focus on anything further than about 20metres either on auto focus, infinity or manual focus. Focus seems to be ok on closer distances.

Panasonic Lumix G1. Viewfinder does not focus when I look through and squeeze shutter. I can get the picture in focus by using AFS which shows the parts which are focused (with green squares), so the photo IS focused when I take it. But I can't see properly what I'm photographing.
You probably changed dioptre adjustment in your camera. There should be a adjustment ring next to the eyepiece. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera
Focus Problem I recently took the camera apart to fix the zoom. lens would not come out. Fixed it all good now goes in and out smothly. Now the pics are fuzzy out of focus. has auto focus 2' too infinity. Wiped the lenses off while i was in there with a lens cloth from binoculars. Maybe not well enough and it might have a film on it. Would that make the pics fuzzy or out of focus? Or is there something else?
A small amount of dirt on the lens would just produce some flare and redule overall contrast slightly. It wouldn't produce a grossly out of focus image. Either you misaligned something or you messed up the autofocus system somehow.\015\012\015\012Can ... Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital Camera
Faulty focus My Lumix with 6x focus will not focus when I use the zoom.
Have you tried changing the focusing mode to one of the other settings? I usually find central point setting best for zoom. Alternatively, you could try using Macro (the flower) setting - I leave mine on this all the time it's really the best general ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 Digital Camera
Autu focus The AF motor drives the barrel trying to focus but it will move to and fro from close distance to infinity. It won't stay focused with the subject at any distance.
Best thing you can do is focus manually, using the little green dot in the bottom left hand corner of the viewfinder for assistance.\015\012\015\012The 'lag' is due to the camera deciding the focus point, passing it to the motor in the lens, by ... Fuji FinePix S2 Pro Digital Camera
Lens Problem I have a C-8080 and I like it but I'm not sure if it is working 100%. The lens barrel is sloppy from side to side and clunks slightly when moving it quickly. It has been that way since it was new. It has some issues with auto focus as well. It has a hard time focusing on clouds and soft objects at infinity. I called Olympus when I bought the camera and mentioned the sloppy lens barrel and they told me that that is the way there made. It is slow to focus when going from close objects
The lens play is normal. The focus is not the fastest, which is a shame because the camera powers up instantly! There are techniques to minimize the focus lag if you choose to keep the camera (e.g. hyperfocal; pre-focus w/manual focus lock). Its a gr ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera
I tried to take a shot of the Vanderbilt baseball stadium, and it came out a little soft and out of focus. I was in Apperture priority at F8 to maximize the depth of field, exposure compensation -2/3EV, metered in the field, and tried to focus on the two guys sitting there in the midfield. Tried one shot AF, the manually tweaking it in OIS mode 2. On screen it looked fine, but on the computer screen not so much so. What could I have done to make it better? How can I set the focus to infinity?
1)The exposure was actually fairly decent. Whatever you metered on wasn't far off.\015\012\015\0122) There was no reason to force the camera all the way up to F8 as in this picture there was no challenge regarding DOF as everything you were shooting ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 Digital Camera

My Lumix DMC-ZS3 pictures are just about always out-of focus in any mode. I have cleaned the lens and have made tests beiing very still. No difference; always out of focus. Might it be broken? Tks

Can I adjust the shutter speed on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 so I can take pictures of waterfalls with the water blurry and the background in focus? Can I adjust the depth of field so my subject is in focus and the background is blurry?
You're asking a lot of a point-and -shoot camera. For the waterfall, set your ISO for the lowest setting and put your camera on a tripod. Shoot when the day is cloudy. For a shallow depth of field, the best you can do is use the zoom at maximum and s ... Panasonic DMC-TZ5 Digital Camera
