Question about Samsung Cameras

1 Answer

Been out in the rain and despite covering my digital slr it may have got damp. Now it won't switch from manual to auto focus even though the switch moves. Is gentle drying likely to cure the problem?

Took lens off the camera and let it dry out in gentle heat over a period of five hours. The problem seems to be solved.
Moral of this story; don't put too much faith in waterproof covers during very heavy downpours!

Rewind sound when switched from auto focus to manual focus


Probably a problem with the af/m switch so that even though switching to manual moves the connector out of the way (pulls it into the mount) the af motor continues to run. Remover the bottom and then the front cover and check the switch.

I can't get my camera out of auto focus


Did you push down the lever on the side of mirror box to switch it to manual focus? If so and it is still not going into manual focus, then the switch may be damaged (bent switch contacts etc.). You can check the switch by removing the bottom and front covers. Beware of loose parts!

Not sure if this will help, but according to the manual, to use manual focus, push the button down until the red portion is visible, and turn the manual focus control dial until the image appears in focus in the viewfinder. Then, take the photo as normal. To return to autofocus, just return the switch to its normal position.

Can we use a Cobra Auto 150S Compact auto/manual flash and slave unit on a Nikon 5000 SLR


As a slave, yes, though you won't get any of the features of a Nikon CLS-compatible flash unit. You would be shooting in manual flash mode. Due to its higher trigger voltage, I would NOT put the unit onto the camera itself.

You need to have a compatible lens to be able to autofocus. Some older Nikkor lenses and even more so 'generic' lenses (ie. Tamron, Sigma, Opteka etc.) do not autofocus or can be used with Nikon bodies.

Check that the lens is compatible with your camera.

My Nikon N55 will not auto focus.


Depending on the type of interchangeable lens you have mounted on the camera, there may be a switch on the lens barrel for choosing between auto-focus or manual focus. The N55 also will not auto-focus with the newer Nikon AFS lenses such as those used with the Nikon D40 digital slr. Finally, there was a service bulletin on the N55 back in 2005. Nikon discovered a problem with the auto-focus and fixed it for free, but there may have been a time limit. Here is a link to more info about that:

Hope this helps : -)

Nikon N55 Won't take picture in Auto Focus Mode?


There was a recall on the N55 due to auto focus problems. You can do a google search or nikon.com email the support team and they will send you the paper. This is what I did, I wasn't charged since I had the correct papers. I, however, used one roll of film and my focus went out again! Mine doesn't even work on manual... If you want to try that maybe you will hae better luck than me. GOOD LUCK!
