SX100 not focussing when zoomed
 
Hi all,
I've had this camera for a while now, and it takes nice pictures. Yesterday I took a picture at full zoom (10X), and it was tack sharp. Today, zoomed, the pictures are blurry, but only when shooting distant objects. If I shoot full zoom at something about 6 feet away, it's perfectly focused, 20 feet away ... blurry. Odd thing is that it will occasionally focus zoomed.
Any thoughts?

Addendum ...... I took the camera apart, re-seated the cables, and now it seems to be focusing.
I'll let you know if the problem returns.

G'day John

Taking the camera apart and "fixing" it ......... you are heaps braver than I am mate :)
As to the problem itself - I don't know enough of the internal mechanics to offer much help

Hi Phil,
Thanks for replying. I'm thinking that re-seating the cables might have fixed it; but one never knows. I've taken a few apart, and I have the skeletons to prove it:).
