Question about Samsung VP-D103i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Zoom Problem When operating the ZOOM switch, rather than zooming in and out, the image just goes in and out of focus. There are actually two points at which the image is in focus, and once set to either of these, the autofocus seems to work.(IE when moving between near and far subjects, it remains in focus).

    This exactly explains the problem I'm having as well. I have 2 points at which the camera will come into focus, otherwise it's blurry.

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.

When I zoom in to take a picture I get it focused I hit the button and the picture shows up not zoomed?


How are you zooming in? If you are using a button to zoom, that is to check the focus: it's just enlarging the image for your convenience during focusing. In order to get a zoomed-in image when press the shutter button, you need to adjust the zoom ring manually on the lens barrel before taking the picture.

When i zoom my cam in and out, it became blurder.


On a webcam, you will generally find that they don't have the optical zoom that you would find on a compact digital, or SLR camer. in most cases, the zoom that you have is digital zoom, this just increases the size of parts the image being fed to the computer, and will often become blurred after a certain point. the best advice would be to move closer to the cam, or to buy a camera with higher resolution...generally 5MP should be more than enough.
the other thing you should try first, is to check that the camera isn't out of focus by looking for a ring around the lens, on some models there will be an adjustable focus, if this is the case,rotate the ring until a desirable image is shown.

Just purchased it from bid tv it has 4xdigital zoom would i have been better to get optical zoom instead this is my first camera


Digital zoom enlarges the ccd image and will become more pixelated the more you zoom and optical zoom uses an actual lens to magnify the image coming into the camera. optical zoom is better than digital zoom.

Camara not focusing/ zoom not working


Its an error code and shows problem of Lens mechanism.
Lens focus / zoom motor is stuck that's why camera gives out of focus image.
You need to replace Lens Assembly and it would cost you more then camera worth.

Dimage Z3 blurred zoom images


I don't think there's any problem. Simply, a longer zoom means that - without a faster shutter speed - there is an increased probability for camera shake. Additionally, cameras usually struggle with focus in longer zoom. To be sure that there isn't a fault, do this:

1) Place the camera on a tripod or other sturdy surface
2) For additional stability (and to avoid camera shake due to shutter button movement), select the self-timer
3) Focus and take the shot.
If it's still blurry, then yeah, there's a problem

IESP auto focus


iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-8080 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-8080 Wide Zoom, the AF target mark automatically moves to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.

Focusing distance in macro mode


On a D-580 Zoom camera, the Macro Mode operating range is 8 inches to 20 inches. This means the camera must be between 8 inches and 20 inches away from the subject for a picture to be in focus.
