Why am I getting pictures with curved edges edges


Hi Ian
What you are suffering is something called barrel distortion which causes images to appear spherised or "inflated". Barrel distortion is associated with wide angle lenses and typically occurs at the wide end of a zoom lens. The use of converters often amplifies the effect. It is most visible in images with perfectly straight lines, especially when they are close to the edge of the image frame

the way to solve it is to try not use the end of the of the zoom of your lens. Above 20 mm you should be fine. If this is not possible then you can correct the effect in programmes like Photoshop

Hope this helps

DCR TRV30 Zoom in/out Problem


Yikes... I have to say, yikes, since my camera has just recently has the same issue. It's a lense issue. The service men said a lense isnt something to joke around with or try to have just "anyone" to look at. This isnt something you can just fix on your own. You need to notify the manufacturer regarding the OEM manufacturer of the lense. Or, get their information on who to have inspect it. Typically, its something broken, and very small that is articulate and impossible to fix on your own, otherwise there is something off with the focus on the lense..or its creating this issue. Again, dont mess with it it will only make it worse when you hear that grinding sound, trust me..I messed with mine and made it worse then it could have been...

Tip

Digital Cameras


Since I have been a expert on Fix ya, I have seen many people write about the auto-focus of the digital zoom lens. Here are a few tips and tricks that will help you in the future.

The Right Lens for the Job
There is another reason for using zoom lenses, especially when you are taking pictures of people. Lenses can alter the appearance of your subject, and wide angle lenses can distort people’s faces – especially if you are taking our advice and getting in close. So, by all means, get close, but if you are doing a portrait, use your zoom as well. Longer lenses are more complimentary and should be used even if you are actually physically close to your subject

What Brand is your SLR?
This is important because every mounting brace for all the camera's are different for example, and Nikon will not fight on a Canon, Canon will not fit on a Pentax and so forth. Some may fit, but the auto focus will not work. So make sure you know your brand and model number before just going out and buying a lens for your camera.

Here are six steps to help you buy the best lens for your money and the camera.
  1. Determine the focal length you'll need
  2. Decide if you want a prime or zoom lens
  3. Select a maximum aperture
  4. Choose between first or third party lenses
  5. Evaluate any extra features
  6. Read reviews and narrow your options

Very loose lens 75-300mm canon zoom


If it is loose on the camera mount, try to avoid using it. If it causes your camera mount to distort, then you won't have much luck with any other lenses!
If it is "loose" meaning: it rattles and there's a bit of play in the 'barrel'...yuuup - get used to it. She's an oldie but a goodie.

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

What size lens do i need for this camera?


You just need any Minolta AF mount lens. Sony Alpha lenses also physically fit as Sony inherited the Minolta lens mount when they bought the company, but as they are a later development not all will be electronically compatible.

The size of the lens depends upon the focal length of the lens and you choose that according to how wide a field of view you desire. Typical lenses are 28 and 35mm wide angles, 50mm "standard" (approximately the same perspective of how the human eyeball sees images), 70 to 90mm short telephoto lenses (a narrower perspective and very good for portraits) and higher numbers are narrower perspective telephoto lenses for viewing increasingly distant objects. In practice, the available lenses will be incorporated into zoom lenses which incorporate a seamless range of focal lengths within one single model. The word "zoom" reflects the fact that you can seamlessly change from say 28mm wide angle through to 80mm short telephoto and every single setting between them

Any zoom which starts at less than 50mm and finishes in the short telephoto range is called a standard zoom and is the lens that most autofocus cameras were supplied with. The next most common size will be something like a 70-200mm which is a telephoto zoom (or tele zoom) and takes you from a portrait lens to a genuine 5x magnification telephoto. You may also find so-called "super zooms" which do the whole job on one, for example 28-200mm. but the more jobs a single lens tries to do, the bigger and bulkier it becomes and the image quality deteriorates due to poorer contrast and greater image distortion at each end of the zoom range.

This is not an exhaustive answer, as there are entire books on the subject, but hopefully it's been of help to you.

What size lens fits a Minolta Maxxum 3xi??


It depends entirely upon what you're after and the type of photography you wish to undertake.

Any Minolta AF mount lens will fit. 28mm is a standard wide angle, 50mm is a standard lens with a field of view approximately the same as the human eye, 80mm is a slight telephoto and for distant subjects 200mm is a long telephoto. Some lenses combine a few into one, they're called zoom lenses and will typically be something like 35-70mm, or 70-200mm. The measurements relate to the focal length of the lens, but generally the larger the number the longer the lens sticks out at the front. Zoom lenses are bulkier and heavier than fixed focal length lenses, but they're also the most commonly used types these days.

have you checked the lense assembly. One of the possible cause may be any of the lense element, inside the lense assembly may have dislocated from its fitting. Just swithc on the camera look inside the lense from the front and try to zoom the camera. if you happen to find any obsticle in the movement may be i am right.

Zoom Problem


There are two components to a camera lense. One adjusts the final lense distance from the CCD imaging chip the other adjusts the distance between the lenses in the assembly (which zooms the image in and out). It sounds like something inside the lense came loose and when you zoom the lense the focal lense is moving with the rest. The lense will probably have to be replaced if it cannot be taken apart. Odds are something is broken inside anyway. This could be something you might be capable of, I have no way of knowing. If you do not think you are up to the task, have a reputable repair shop do it. Cost should not be excessive. I would think less than $100 US plus the cost of the part. Good luck.
