Finepix adaptor ring

I have a S300 which I love however, recently the adaptor ring won't stay connected to the camera. It is held on by the string to the camera but it won't screw into the lens body. What has happened to cause this? Help thank you

I am not sure of my solution to this problem will work for you, but thought I would share it just in case.

I had the same problem with the adaptor ring which my husband said was due to it being a cheap plastic (or whatever it is made of) and after a great deal of use, the threads were stripped.

My first solution was to purchase a replacement from Fuji, which I did. However, that adaptor ring did the very same thing. After phoning Fuji once again to order a couple of extra adaptor rings, Fuji told me that they were on backorder and most likely would be discontinued. This was a couple of years ago. Since I use my camera quite a bit, my husband ended up getting some good super glue and carefully attached it to the camera for good which is great since I am usually using the telephoto or wide angle lens on the end of it.

Anyways, the glue has held it to the camera for over two years and I could not be happier! I hope this helps, but if not, good luck to you!

Can I get my Finepix software to run on Windows 8?


Consider NOT using the FinePix software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you an use any photo cataloging program such as Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Images are not fetched from camera


Forget the fetching from the camera...pros never use that method because of problems such as you are experiencing. Instead, use a card reader to download the pics from the card to a folder you create on the desktop. Once there, you can send them to any program you like.

Well, first of all, get a new AC adaptor. Do your pics appear on the camera? If so, just get a separate card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. This one is $13 at Walmart. da139e4.jpg

One side of the door on my Fuji s300 where the card goes in has broken off. The other side is still intact. Right now I keep the door closed with a piece of duck tape. Can the door be replaced and where...


Didn't fix the problem. Part not available so duck tape will have to do until I'm forced into another camera. I like this camea but both Fuji's I purchesed had the same problem with a door. The other was the battery door where the tabs that kept the door closed chipped off so the door would not stay closed.
I will not purchse another Fuji.
