The lens on the S2980 only opens up to f/3.1, and that only at the wide end of the zoom range. At the wide end the only available aperture settings are f/3.1 and f/6.4. At the long end they are f/5.6 and f/11. See the specifications on page 119 of the manual.

In general, compact cameras simply do not give you the control that larger (heavier, more expensive) SLRs do.

Camera takes blurry pictures up close and sharper ones from afar. Camera will not focus on specific object either.


There is a "close focus" limit, depending on your lens. The standard "kit lens" won't focus closer than about 2 feet away. Check that the switch on the lens is set to "AF" not "MF" "MF" means, "manual focus".
When you lightly press the shutter button, the viewfinder should blink with little dots/squares indicating what it focused on, and beep. If it doesn't, and you are set for "AF", then your camera needs repair.

Estimated time remaining readout shows AF instead of the time left. It is a Kenmore 700 series dryer


AF stands for Algorithm Failure, which means that there is something preventing the dryer from calculating the remaining time. Try cleaning out the dryer drum and lint screen completely, then run the dryer with just a dry towel.

Stuck in AF-ILL ONLY mode


Is the flash still on the camera when you do this? If so, check your camera settings as well as the camera may be over-riding you.

If the flash is not on the camera, some of the settings for custom settings can only be changed with it on the camera via camera commands.

If you do not have the manuals, you can get them here:

AF error will not go away after cleaning vent and lint filters


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.

AF is an error that will flash if a restricted air flow is sensed by the dryer control. If three consecutive cycles have low airflow the control will flash the AF error.

The AF error code can be cleared by pressing the Drying Temp pad for 5 seconds while in stand-by mode. AF will flash in the display for 1 second then "on" will appear in the display. If you press Drying Temp again and "of" will appear in the display indicating the AF error display has been turned off. Try this procedure and see if the "of" error goes away. If the "of" came up in the display by itself then the keypad may be stuck. However After cleaning the dryer's lint screen, ensure that the exterior exhaust hood connected to the dryer is unblocked, ensure that the vent connecting the dryer to the wall is clear and see that the vent is cleaned professionally.

Please get back to us if you have any further query.

When I turn camera on to take picture, I get a screen that says "1M 423". It is set on "Auto" which is also indicated on the viewing screen. How do I fix it?


"1M" stands for 1 megapixel. The camera is set take pictures in 1280x960 pixels mode. To change this press the F button and select another mode. 6M is the highest quality, but will reduce the number of pictures, you can take before the card is full. "423" indicates available space on the card. This number gets lower as you increase quality.

The pictures I take with my Kodak digital camera are not clear


One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below. The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model. The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures. The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range. The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.) You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error. The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
