TG2 focus problem
Jun 10, 2013

My TG2 seems to have an intermittent focus problem.
Something focus seems to physically stick.

When this happens, I can sometimes get focus working with a gentle tap to the camera with the palm of my hand. When this does not work, i need to reboot the camera.

I have also noticed that this condition is more likely to happen after I try to make a change in zoom/focal length. Additionally, more likely to happen after sitting a few minutes with camera "on" (waiting for "the shot").

Anyone else with similar TG2 condition?

It is a great little camera and I like it a lot for whitewater kayaking. I'll observe the TG2 for a couple more days. It will prob be sent back to Olympus for repair...hopefully under warranty. I'll have to use my back-ups, AW100 and my old Olympus 8000.

Nikon Coolpix AW100
