EVF and LCD VF on Fuji S5000

    I was in Sears (of all places) checking out the Fuji S5000. I noticed that
    the image in both the EVF and LCD viewfinders was not very clear. Of
    course, the sales droids were busy, so I did not bother to ask them about
    it. I am guessing that this condition is not the norm. Besides a defective
    camera, are there any settings that could be messed up? I wanted to put my
    hands on one before I went online to buy it. None of the reviews that I
    have read have mention this issue with the viewfinders. I guess that it's
    also possible the camera was just out of focus.

  2. The S5000 has a dioptre adjustment dial to the left hand side of the
    viewfinder, this had probably been moved or played with by somebody who
    looked at the camera before you, causing the image to appear out of focus.

    With a slight button push, the S5000 can be put into
    manual focus mode, and if you dont know which buttons to
    push to focus it, the view will be incurably fuzzy.

    Go back to Sears (or some other place that has one) and
    pick up the camera holding it right-side up with the
    lens facing away from you and look for the little tiny
    button on the left side top. That button (when the
    locking switch next to it is slid forward) will cycle
    the camera through its focus modes. C-AF is what comes
    on screen for Constant auto focus. (camera focuses
    WITHOUT the shutter-button being touched)

    The OP said it was out of focus on BOTH view-finder AND
    LCD screen. That would mean Manual focus mode, or a
    broken camera.
