Canon G5 Focusing Problem

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Matthew Palmer, Apr 12, 2004.

  1. I just bought the Canon G5. I have noticed that an unusual amount of
    daytime"easy" photo are not as sharp as they could be even with the flash
    on. I was about to return the camera until I read in the manual about the
    Continuous Focusing System. I thought it maybe interfering with my shooting
    at the last second taking things a bit out of focus. I shut it off and have
    had better"not perfect" success. I am fairly sure it is not camera shake 1.
    because of the excellent lighting conditions and 2. this is my 3rd digicam
    (Casio QV-3000 and Oly c-50) and this is the first problem like this. I am
    still a bit leery of the G5 at this point, If someone could point me in the
    right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

  2. On a G5, using f/8 gives you the _slowest_ possible shutter
    speed, but the maximum depth of field. As a matter of
    interest, the lens gives its best quality at around f/4 - f/5.6
