HOW TO FIX A STUCK LENS

If your lens isn't coming out when you turn it on then here is a neat trick you can try to actually solve the problem

with the camera off ,, grip the lens with your fingers if you can or a large tweezer.. Press the power button and pull out the lens at the same time.. wait a minute or two and push the lens back in if it aint going in on its own. repeat this a few times until it starts to move in on its own..

is adding grip for nikon d5100 solve the problem of auto focus with sigma 170-500 lens


No. This lens lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the camera to have one. The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Adding a battery grip does not change this situation.

The D5100 only autofocuses with lenses having an internal autofocus motor. Nikon designates such lenses AF-S, Sigma calls it HSM. Lenses without the motor will only autofocus with the larger and heavier Nikon cameras such as the D7000.

i just bought a battery grip for my canon camera. but the grip ceases when i am using it for work. please help find solution


Is this battery grip a Canon or aftermarket accessory? Have you mounted the camera to a tripod if so what lens do you have on the camera? Are you using the adapter for the use of AA's or are you using the LP-E8 battery pack? Are you using the camera in portrait position or landscape?

Here is why Canon has had in the past some problems with battery grips but I thought it was a solved issue maybe not on the entry level DSLR's. What happens is there is enough flex between the body and the grip to break connection and yes it seizes up. Most Rebels will have a plastic lens mounting flange which will also flex with the weight of a lens (longer focal lengths). Also with the longer focal length lens it has more a tendency to flex the battery grip if mounted on a tripod. Holding in the portrait position the weight of the camera is actually pulling away from the contacts so there is a whole series of little possibilities. If it's a Canon accessory then it's a warranty thing if it's aftermarket Humm not sure should have something on it but, the quick fix is to keep tightening the mounting screw/wheel. I know that wasn't the fix you wanted but hey just telling the way it is.

Hi,

The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended.


1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.


2.
Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera.


Thank you !!

SHADOW SPOT ON CANON SD1100 DIGITAL CAMERA SCREEN THAT COMES OUT ON PICTURES


The spot is actually on your camera lens. Try taking the battery out while you are in the shooting mode(lens extended) then clean the lens with a lens cleaner and that should solve your problem.
