Question about Samsung Digital 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!

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.


I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

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.

I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position. When...


Hope I can help with some input to your problem. Let me suggest please that you switch the "mode" dial to "P" for program, check your ISO (I personally shoot ISO 100) and set it for a speed ISO 400 or lower. Most DSLR's use contrast to focus so a mirror, chrome, flat body of water, painted wall especially a white wall are just terrible to get an auto focus on. Also auto focus isn't going to happen in darkness unless you have (for Canon) an external Infrared auto focus assist beam. Also you could be to close to your subject as in attempting to do close up or macro photography and have over extended your lens capabilities.

You aren't doing anything wrong it's just I think that you have fallen into one or all of the above situations that auto focus just can't read being either dark, lacking contrast, or reflective surface or to close to your subject.

I wanted you to get off the full auto so you could enjoy the Rebel and expand on its features shooting in full auto turns it into a very expensive point and shooter. Shooting in "P" you can do what is called Program shift where you actually input settings into the camera before the picture is taken.

That little green dot focus confirmation will work even in manual mode so even though it might look out of focus to you if that dot is green and solid not blinking then it's in focus squeeze the shutter make the shot.

One other bit of information make sure you shut the IS off before mounting the camera on a tripod. if left on it will actually cause more vibration (that took me a while to figure out) have a great day hope this was a help sorry it took three days for me to find you with this problem Robert in Canada

Canon Digital Rebel XT auto focus


Auto Focus does not determine exposure. Only sharpness. "Wrong" exposure could be due to the metering mode being set in Spot Metering. Set it back to Evaluative Metering which may improve the overall even exposure of your shots. Test your shots in full auto or P mode. M (Manual) mode will require you to check the exposure setting manually (you can see the indicator in the viewfinder when you half-press the trigger)

Auto focus on my SLR doesn't work


I have this same lens and it focuses at all focal lengths and with all settings except :"manual." Be sure that the setting switch on the lens itself is not set to "M" (manual).

How to use a manual zoom lens with Evolt 510


By manual zoom lens I am assuming you mean a film camera lens. If it is one of our OM 1 or 2 lenses they can be used on our Olympus digital SLR camera but you will need to purchase an MF-OM1 converter to be able to adapt those lenses to fit on our digital SLR camera. Then you will only be able to shoot using those lens in manual focus mode. Auto focus mode will not be available.

I BOUGHT A PENTAX K10D THAT CAME WITH A VERY NICE AUTO ZOOM LENS. I OWN SEVERAL OLDER PENTAX LENSES THAT I USED ON MY K1000 CAMERA AND I WANT TO USE THEM ON THE K10D. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT THE SETTINGS THAT...


Hello,

I don't own a K10D, but I do own a K100D which I have successfully used both manual focus & auto-focus lenses from my old Pentax stash!

1) If it is a manual focus lens, you need to turn off Autofocus on the body of your K10D. On my K100D, there is a switch on the side of the lens mount that says [-MF or -AF]. "-MF" is manual focus mode & "-AF" is autofocus mode. Since your lens doesn't have autofocus capability, turn it to the "-MF" mode.

Also . . . When I press "Menu" and go to "Custom Setting", I change two settings . . .

1) I change "Using aperture ring" to "Permitted". This allows you to use manual lenses (M lenses) that do not have an auto(exposure) setting, and also lets you use Auto lenses (A, KA, KA2, FA, etc.) in either the Auto or manual aperture setting modes.

2) I change "Fl with S lens used" so that even with a manual focus lens, although I don't have autofocus capability, my K100D beeps and shows a little red square in the viewfinder when I have successfully focused manually!

The K10D should have the same options.

This should get you up and running!

I have had a load of fun with my old lens on my new digital Pentax!

Take care & Happy Imaging!
Glen
