SOURCE: Fujifilm FinePix 3800 flash will not work

Normally when the flash stops working it is because the capacitor the camera uses to store the flash power ( that is what charges..not the bulb) burns out. This is a very difficult repair and should only be completed by a camera technician.
If the repair is over 10 dollars I would suggest a new camera.

Try these:
1) Make sure the lens cap is off. When the camera fires up, if it feels any resistance, it will stop zooming and tell you "zoom error"
2) Recharge or fit new batteries. Use 2700 power if you can get them.
3)Is there a bit of dirt between the zoom part and the camera body? I had this problem after my camera had been in my overcoat pocket. I cleared it out with a stiff artist's brush. Do NOT use WD 40 or similar, as I found to my cost on another camera. It eventually seeped through to the works and made all the pics cloudy!
4) Hold the camera body in one hand and gently wiggle the zoom part from side to side and up to down.You will hear a quiet click in the mechanism.
I have used my S1000fd lots now, and the initial "zoom error" problems have stopped.
It's a fine little camera, I especially like the 12x zoom and the live histogram. Mine has taught me lots about photography.

SOURCE: My Fuji s2000 always shoots picture that are

Found the same thing and I think the answer is the opposite of previous suggestions. The s2000 is truly awful at anything above about 400ASA The degree of pixel binning it uses just makes the pictures look terrible. Force the camera to use 400 or slower (lower numbers), force flash and I think you'll see a great difference. I was on the verge of sending mine back before I discovered this.

An update to the initial posting. As a warranty service provider, I can state that physical damage as a result of mis-use is NOT covered under warranty. Lens problems caused by dropping the camera are considered mis-use and are not covered. There is a good posibility that the lens assembly is just out of timing and can be rebuilt, but the cost to do this will not be paid by the manufacturer.

I don't want you to believe that this repair will be for free as it will not.

Regards,
Dan

Fujifilm Finepix AX Flash Is Not Working/Turning On


If your camera is in "silent mode" the flash will not work. Press and hold the Disp/back button for a few seconds and the camera will toggle between "silent mode" and "normal mode"

How do i take action shots?


The DSC-HX300 has 16 shooting modes, Anti-motion Blur, Back Light
Beach,,Fireworks, Food, Handheld Twilight, High Sensitivity, Landscape, Night Portrait, Night Scene, Pet Portrait, Smooth Skin, Snow, Soft Focus, Sports.
>Use the Sports mode for action. Use the 'burst' option and you'll get several images and be able to select the best moment.
Wider angles (rather than extreme telephoto) allows for less blur if the camera is handheld (even teh improved Steady shot feature can only do just so much.) You may have better results optimizing for either ISO or shutter speed, but that will be lighting and speed-of-action dependant. You'll probably need to experiment a bit.

What setting is for sports


That depends on the sport, the location, and what you want the pictures to say to the viewer. You won't necessarily shoot a daytime football game outdoors the same way as a basketball game indoors.

In general you're going to want a fast shutter speed to freeze the action. To get the fastest shutter speed possible, use the Aperture Priority mode by turning the mode dial to "A" then select the largest aperture by using cursor-up/down to get the smallest f/number.

Having said that, sometimes you might want a slower shutter speed to convey a sense of motion. Select Shutter Priority by turning the mode dial to "S" and use cursor-up/down to select the desired shutter speed.

Need help taking action pictures with fujifilm finepix s2940.. any idea on what setting should the dial be?


If you are getting bad results from the SRAuto mode, select the SP mode. Then press MENU/OK Use the Up/Down selector to highlight Scene Position. Select the Sport Scene Position (icon of person running). Then press MENU/OK to select. This will remain the default setting each time you use the SP mode until you change it again.

I have a FUJIFILM Finepix S1500 digital camera and I love it! But i find it hard to use the macro settings and how to get really clear shots! Any help? :)


Macro photography usually requires a steady camera. This means you need a tripod for really clear shots and you need to be within the distance range as outlined in the owner's manual.

My Fuji 5000 is not performing like it used to on action shots - even when on auto mode. The blurriness is terrible and all my shots have the blurred look unless the subjects stand still.


Have you gone to the manual? It might be the film speed setting is too low which is adjusted through the menu button. If my memory is correct it would be in the setup mode. If you haven't already checked this, the higher the speed the better the action shots.

Fujifilm S5000 model, works well but have picture problems.


You want to set the focus mode to S-AF, then move the focus mode selector to the lock position.
Hopefully that will fix the problem.

Shutter speed


On most fuji cameras the programmed shutter speed for the sports or action mode is 1/1600. This is the mode you need to use. You should not have to change the aperature unless you have a problem with the light. This is the most difficult shot to make with a digi cam. So make sure you use a larger steady tripod for this shot (If you can't use a tripod crouch down on one knee and use the other as a support.) Keep a steady hand and don't make the mistake of creating camera shake by hurrying an action shot. I focus a little ahead of my subject, then snap the shot when I see they appear. This method even works with lightening. Practice making this kind of shot. You can get very good shots with some care and practice. Good luck.
