“I’m trying to look through the filter.”
You’ll notice that when the filter is opened, there’s not much there.
The lens has just been exposed to the light and the photo has not been adjusted to make the image more pleasing to the eye.
“I’ve tried adjusting it,” the user wrote, “but it doesn’t seem to be helping at all.”
I have trouble seeing what’s being photographed when the filters are closed, a phenomenon called “sharp focus.”
The problem is exacerbated when the camera is set to manual focus, the default setting for most cameras, and you’re not looking through a filter.
Here’s what happens when the user clicks on the “focus” button: The lens is exposed to more light than normal.
The shutter is opened.
The camera’s aperture is increased.
The image quality is improved.
I’m not alone.
I’ve been told that the filter, when opened, is not helping.
A friend of mine had the same problem and called Canon, who said it was fixed by adjusting the focus knob.
But my friend has an iPhone, and when I clicked on the button, the shutter was opened again and the image wasn’t sharpened.
I asked Canon about the issue and was told that it was a software glitch and they would look into it.
I called Canon and was asked for a refund.
The fix I got was for a firmware update, and now I can see what’s been done to the image.
It doesn’t appear that the lens has been adjusted.
I’ll have to see if the filter changes its focus during the upgrade process.
And, if it does, it will need to be adjusted again.
It’s not a perfect fix, but it’s a step in the right direction.
