Can i change my lens to other lenses like fish eye, wide angle or macro lens or even zoom lens?


This is a fixed lens camera so the short answer is no. However there are third party accessories lenses that can be screwed to the front of the lens to give a "fish eye" or telephoto capability. To get "Macro" there is a kit available which has a series of three close up lenses these lenses screw to the front lens element of your camera allowing for some pretty impressive macro capabilities.

Again to answer your original question no you can't change the lens on your camera

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I...


Hi it sounds like the lense has got knocked whilst the camera was one and the lense out, the damage may all ready be done but what you can try is when you switch it on get the lense and try pulling it out slightly and then when the camera is switched off try pushing the lense back in it may need turning slightly to allow it to go back in

if none of the above works then this means the lense motor has either been put under strain and shorted and no longer works or it just means the lense motor has packed up through no fault of your own.

now if pulling and pushing the lense dont solve the problem then it all depends on the make wether its worth repairing or not, if its a high end camera then most camera shops will repair it as the cost would work out worth doing,
if the camera is a mid to low end price range then knowbody will touch these as the cost would far out way the price of the camera so you need to think is it worth paying to get fixed and would the cost be more than the price of the camera.

if its a high end expensive camera then you will be able to get it fixed and it would work out cheaper than buying a new camera, if its a mid range to low end price range then you wont be able to get it fixed as they are classed as a throw away item,

if you let me know make and model i will be able to tell you if its going to be cost affective to get it repaired or if it will be better to sell it on the auction site as spares and cut your losses and get a new camera

let me know then i can assist you further ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Have a brand new EOS 100D with Canon image


Have you actually cleaned the contacts or are you just looking at them and they "look" clean? Clean them with a cotton swab lightly dampened in rubbing alcohol.

Zoom Error


hi thanks for using fixya!

On this kind of error, I suggest that you bring your camera to a service center or to your retailer to further check the hardware problem of your camera.

Zoom Error


this usually happens when you turn on the camera with the lense cover still on. just turn it off and remove the lense cover and turn it back on again. hope this helps.

Sony DSC-w50 zoom not working


switch on when the lense extends take the end of it and gently twist and pull the lense you may hear it click be gentle do not force it then switch off and on again and this will solve the problem 98% of the time.

Panasonic DMC-FZ7 digital camera.


I believe the FZ7 determines that the lense cap is still on when it can't extend the zoom lense because the lense cap is in the way. I would check to see if your zoom lense housing is somehow stuck (could be sand or dirt in it) which is creating enough resistance to make the camera think the lense cap is impeding the zoom lense from extending.
