View Full Version : olympus stylus 300 focusing bad

02-26-2005, 03:22 PM
My Olympus Stylus 300 is about 2 years old and lately the focusing is deteriorating. It seems to be focused in the preview, but the actual photo is almost always out of focus. It seems much worse for close ups. It has never been dropped. Has anyone had this problem? Where would be the best place to send it for repair (Chicago. IL or vicinity)?

I guess you should be glad that it is still working even after 2 years of use, because mine (just like many others) just broke for no apparent reason just 1 week ago....

FYI... The cost to repair this camera would be $150 (info from Olympus Service Dept based on my personal experience) and a brand new one with a 32MB XD card comes for about $150 ... now the choice is yours!
