Question about BenQ DC C40 Digital Camera

Open Question

Frozen Camera The camera screen does not display the subject and when "Off" os selected the lens does not retact. Zooming in or out does not work. A photo can be taken but the result is usually very poor being out of focus and incorrectly exposed. I have tried removing the batteries and replacing them with new ones - same problem. Meus and playback work fine.

How can I keep the picture sharp when zooming in macro

When you zoom in macro with a Coolpix camera, you must change the camera to subject distance to compensate because as you zoom in and out, the depth of focus of the lens changes dramatically.

Len extended will not retract

Hi gjnicks. All these cameras w lens assemblies that extend are subject to problems. Most likely the lens got pushed somehow or grit got inside. The only solution is to have the unit repaired professionally. Replacing the lens assy will involve checking focusing & zooming functions with a device consumers do not have.

How to zoom and take photos using nikon dx 40 slr camera with 18-55 mm lens

If you are new to DSLR camreras then this should work for you, you will have to rotate the ring on the lens, look through the viewfinder while trying it and you will notice the camera zooming in, the lens will be autofoucing as it is held on the subject in automatic mode. There are other settings you will like to try once you are used to the functions. That will come to you as you are developing your skills. Enjoy your new camera!

Out of focus

Sounds like the camera is trying to focus if you hear sound when pressing the shutter halfway down or zooming. If the noise is a scraping or grinding sound, you might have debris stuck between the cracks of the lens and the camera body. This happened to me after i dropped my canon sd550 on the beach just once and it never recovered. Next to water sand has got to be one of a camera's worse enemy. Also, the lens might be cocked a bit which would prevent the camera from focusing and zooming smoothly. Try gently adjusting the the lens. Sometimes the slightest imperfection in the lens will throw everything off. Good luck!

Shadow on image when using built-in Speedlight

The built-in Speedlight on many Nikon cameras is designed to be a convenient way to either light up a dark subject or to add fill light to a daytime scene. The built-in Speedlight cannot replace a full size, external speedlight which should be used when more power or coverage are needed. Because the built-in Speedlight is compact and close to the camera it cannot be used under all conditions. When using a lens that is physically very long, a subject that is very close, or a wide lens hood it is possible that a shadow may be cast upon the subject. Notice, in the sample below, the round shadow in the bottom center of the photo. When the lens is too long or the coverage is too wide with a close subject a shadow of the lens itself is cast. In figure "A" below the lens is casting a shadow. Switching (or zooming) to a shorter lens (figure "B") prevents the shadow and allows even illumination. If your lens, subject, or lens hood choice create a shadow, an external flash (either on the camera's hot-shoe or connected to the camera by a wire or wirelessly) should be used to fully light the subject.
