Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

SOURCE: My auto focus will not

hi there,

i think your lens calibration is not match as it default so the auto focus can`t determine the object sharply

you should contact your official service center to get it fixed

thanks

Some of my pictures are blurry using a cannon rebel 3. how can i fix this problem?


There are several possible causes for blurry pictures.
1) Camera motion. If everything is blurry, it's most likely because the camera moved while the picture was being taken. Make sure your shutter speed is fast enough if you're handholding the camera (longer lenses require faster shutter speed). Alternatively, put your camera on a stable surface, such as a tripod or a tabletop.
2) Subject motion. If the subject is blurry but the background is sharper, then the subject may have moved while the picture was being taken. Use a faster shutter speed. Raise the ISO if needed. There are limits, of course. If you're trying to photograph a fast-moving object in the dark, you probably won't be able to.
3) Improper focus. If the subject is blurry but something else in the picture is sharp, then the camera probably focused on the wrong object. Move the focus selector to the subject you want in focus. Alternatively, center the viewfinder on the subject, press the shutter button halfway to lock focus, then reframe and shoot.
Without any more specific information as to what and how your pictures are blurry, I'm afraid the above is all I can give you.

VIEW SCREEN IS SO BLURRY I CAN'T TELL WHAT ITS SHOWING.


Is it the viewfinder (that you hold up to your eye) or the screen that's blurry?
If the viewfinder is blurry, there should be a diopter adjustment to fix it, probably right above the rubber eye cup.
If the screen is blurry, you should take some pictures and video and view them on a computer. I they are sharp on the computer but blurry on the camera screen, there may be a problem with the screen and you may need to take it in for repair.
If the pictures are blurry on the computer as well, the camera may not be focusing properly. If you can't focus manually, or the camera can't focus when auto focus is turned on, you have good light, and aren't too close to your subject, then it may need to be serviced.

Some of your electronics parts were worn out. Like capacitors may have leaks that need to be replace
as use stated that the word focus were very clear it means that your tube is still okay. or you adjust the focus knob on the compartment. To tune in the 3 colors.

The camera is blurry and out of focus. How can I solve it?


Hi there, Just tune the black circle in front of the lens, that is a focusing part of the lens. Turn on your camera and when you seen your video then start tuning for focusing. It will solve your blurry & focusing problem.
Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

When you say you changed the focus block, did you adjust each color individually ? Most projection sets are adjusted by covering 2 lens and focusing each one seperately. Try this , it has always worked for me

40 DX - blurry pics


The lens is out of focus or the shutter speed is too slow, to determine if this is a defect or failure, mount the camera on a tripod and use the self timer or remote cable (if you have the remote cable) to take exposures while autofocusing on a neutral colored object such as a beige item,

if they're still blurry then manually focus the camera and try again.

If they are still blurry and your Nikon has a diopter focus adjuster (this is typically in the rear next to the viewfinder where you focus your eye), set the diopter to neutral and manually focus again.

If they are still blurry, remove the lens and using a cloth dampened with high percentage or denatured alcohol, clean off contact rings since this is where the lens and the camera body communicate and transfer focus data.

If they are still blurry, then use the same cleaning method for the contact ring of the camera body.

If they are still blurry use a different lens and repeat the first two steps.

If they are still blurry then you may have a smudged and dirty sensor, this is the part which actually registers the image and should be cleaned by a professional.

If you are so brave to, you can use the cameras feature to lock the mirror and expose the sensor, this is typically only done to perform a dust cleaning using light blasts of clean air and using solvents on the sensor is dangerous.

If you choose to do so anyway, use a bright flashlight and look for anything that appears to be smudging, if it isn't apparent then your camera or lenses are likely in bad need of maintenance.

Out of focus


How old is the set? If picture is really very blurry, Try adjusting 'focus'. You can find this conttrol generally at the rear of the set. Otherwise,. if you know solid state electronics, Check the Focus control on the FBT. It is also possible that the CTR Base is faulty. Replacing this helps.
