Canon G5 -- Focusing problems

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Richard Holliingsworth, Jun 7, 2004.

  1. Hi:
    I have a new Canon G5. I like the cameral, nice resolution for the
    price. Problem is, a lot of my pics are out of focus. I check to make
    sure the focusing square is green b4 shooting and try to hold the camera
    still, but still get a lot of fuzzy pics. Any ideas for helping insure
    an autofocus camera really is in focus b4 shooting. Manual focus is
    difficult with this camers to me.

    Thanks for any advise.

    For me the manual focus button was on the wrong side of the camera when I 1st used it but
    with a little practice, you can use the auto-focus to lock in and then press the manual
    focus buton before shooting. I found that occasionally what was focused previously would get
    re-adjusted when pressing the shutter button but the technique of using the focus lock by
    this method worked well for me.

    Are you sure it is a focus problem? I used to have the same problem,
    then I realized I was not as steady handed as I thought I was, and it
    was camera motion. I am a lot more careful now and achieve a fare
    better "in focus" ratio.

    No problem with mine - you may well have to take it off the continuous focus
    setting though.

    I've had the G5 since last December and it developed the same problem about
    6 weeks ago and aprox 50% of the pics are partially to severely blurry
    depending on the lighting.

    Someone else also passed through this NG a few months back with the same
    problem and ended up sending it back to Canon for repair.

    Guess I need to get a RMA# and take it from there.

    Good luck,
