    I was uploading photos to my computer when all of a sudden there was an "error" and now it appears as if the only buttons on the camera that work are the shutter button and the power button. I can't get my computer to recognize the camera nor can I get the camera to do anything but turn on and take a picture.

    Every time I press the on/off, when the camera is fully charged, button while on the picture taking and video mode the lens comes out but the screen doesn't come on, not allowing me to take pictures. Yet, when I put it on the display mode, the pictures that I took before show up with no problem.

Picture not focused at 12x zoom


It's probably something to do with a lag or jam on your shutterspeed. so when you hit the button, and move you get a little blur. If its not this you might need to have your lens cleaned inside and out due to the camera zooms and catches the blurs on the lens after zooming so far in. I would recommend taking it to your local camera shop for adjustments and cleaning.

Need a manual for a Vivitar Vivicam 8600s


Generally speaking, zooming reduces clarity. This is already a low megapixel camera at 8.1 MP, with a 6X optical zoom. This means that, for anything up to 6 times the resolution, it'll really zoom in by adjusting lenses.

Everything after that (8.5X) will be digital, which will result in noisy (pixelated) pictures.

However, make sure to take a few zoomed pictures and view them on a PC or Mac with an actual monitor. It's possible that the zoomed pictures only look bad on the tiny screen of the camera itself.

Lack of focus at 20" on zoom


Zoomed fully in, the minimum focus is about 20 inches. If you want to focus closer, you must zoom out. See page 72 of this manual.

Lens keeps getting stuck/needs a good tug to zoom past 25 HELP!


Hi Rachael_amor, If the lens will not zoom on the camera will it off the camera? If not then it has some grit, dirt, and the like in the lens. You could attempt to vacuum around the zoom however, I suspect it will need to go in to Nikon. That lens is not well weather sealed, it is a inexpensive consumer lens.

My 18-70mm DX has a shaky front portion that the shade fits on


My lens did the same for most of the past year or so. Finally it started catching as I zoomed in and out and would not go wider than ~24mm. The problem is one or more of the screws holding the zoom mechanism comes loose and jams. Follow this link for the fix; took me ~20 min to repair (I went very slowly)!

Optical zoom


Hey needacamera,
The range of an optical zoom lens refers to how wide angle to telephoto the lens covers. An example of a 6x optical zoom would be an 18mm-108mm lens, which covers wide angle to telephoto. An example of a 3x zoom lens would be an 18mm-54mm lens, which would provide a capability of capturing images from wide angle to normal views. To calculate the x factor of an optical zoom you would divide the largest number by the smallest number on your zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Faulty focus


Have you tried changing the focusing mode to one of the other settings? I usually find central point setting best for zoom. Alternatively, you could try using Macro (the flower) setting - I leave mine on this all the time it's really the best general purpose mode.

Focusing the 770


Tom, It's best to do the zoom first, then focus (if you are using the autofocus).
