It seems the life of digital cameras are 2-3 years. The camera has lens gear problem. The lens assy fails most on digital cameras with moving lens. The plastic gears in the lens assy. are quite fragile in design and when used regularly, gears tends to wear down and eventually damages the lens movement. Many time a small impact or stress on lens when extended do the same damage. The parts are sold as a lens assy and repair cost may run around $100.

Argued for almost a year over focusing problems and methoding and "r13" problems which they said was a bad connection between the lens and the camera. When the guarantee ran out we insisted the store


The D90, is a very good camera. I even know some professionals who do have one or more, to work with or have it as a backup for a bigger Nikon, because it will work with almost every Nikon lens. That means, it also works with the older AF lenses, that were made for analog (film) cameras.
To start, put the main dial on the top left, to the green camera (auto) logo or the one with the line through the flash logo, next to it. In both cases the camera works automatic , with a little difference. In auto it will pop up the speed light when there is little light, in the other it will raise the ISO and will not use the flash. without flash, if there is not enough light, the camera just won't make a picture.
when you are in one of the automatic settings, see in the view finder, where the camera will focus while you press the shutter half. It will place one ore more squares on one or several parts of your frame, where the camera "thinks" it should focus on. It this or these parts are the points you like to be in focus, then press the button full.

this should give better pictures. If it works, let me know.

Lens issues with Nikon D40 camera


Have you ever cleaned the contacts on the lens and the camera body where they meet? If not, do so now with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

My konica minolta Dimage z2 doesn't focus


Your problem may be that the camera is "locked" on manual focus. If so, you will need to go to the menu, scroll to "2" menu in "P" mode, and click on "focusing mode". From there, hit "single focus or continuous focus." It should correct the problem. Also, is the lens dirty? A dirty lens will not benefit the camera. The light may be too low, also. Try using a flashlight to focus, then take the picture.

Blurred subject in middle of photo


I own Rebel XT and Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII lens with plastic mount and noticed many pictures with missed focus, either front or back focusing. Meaning objects slight forward or below the intended subject is in focus. I've sent my body and the lens to Canon for evaluation and thet adjusted my focus sensors on the body. I still have problems and there are many threads related to focusing on this camera with 50mm f1.8 that the sensors on this camera do not do so well with fast lens and prone to missed focus.
Test your camera's focusing ability with a book or magazine where you focus on just one specific line and see if it is truly in focus when you review the picture.

Actions shots are blured


The various solutions include:

try to set focus range (settings), to infinity or to an approximate distance to the object you need to take a photo of as sometimes the automatic setting does not always do a godd job at focusing , or look at the lens when it is on if its got grease use a wet camera lens cleaning kit (someone touched the glass of the lens ) a s grease makesa it hard for the camera to focus , hence blurrig or go into your options and lower the iso mode or take it off night node if any as the iso mode leads to high exposure time which means any light that changes would record as a smear hence blurring or use flash.

Pictures are blurry; quality of photos seem compromised


As simple as this may sound, have you cleaned the lens lately? A lot of image quality deterioration comes from a finger print or other smudge on the lens. Digital cameras are succeptable to even the smallest gunk on the lens. Because the lens element is very tiny, use a cotton swab with a drop of lens cleaner (or isopropyl alcohol) to thouroughly clean and dry the lens. If it isn't a dirty lens, check your file-size and flash settings.
