It’s not clear if you are


It's not clear if you are saying the focus problem is in manual or auto. Auto focus can be a problem when the background has strong sharp contrasty things in it – autofocus has to decide which part of the image you want to be sharp, sometimes to check focus, it needs to go out of focus, then sharpen the blurriness up. Manual on some cameras is really simple, but on compacts like this, manual focus is a nudge, nudge button prod, and it's rather hit and miss.


Often, the general advice is always to use manual focus, but on these cameras, auto is often better.
