I can't remember which one is which, but I do know that the lens with the later model number has considerably better performance.

Why wont my Olympus zuiko 300mm lens zoom to max length?


Most camera's can't focus when the aperture number is above 5,6. Although your tele zoom starts at 4,8, it reaches the 5,6 at about 150 mm. So from there and up it can't auto focus. You still should be able to focus manually, but for wild life or sports pictures, it is useless.

What is 55-200mm?


That's the focal range of a zoom lens. Unlike a single focal-length lens (or a "prime" lens) a zoom lens lets you adjust the focal range. "55-200mm" specifies the lens's focal range from 55mm at the low end to 200mm at the long end.

You can read a general description of zoom lenses at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoom_lens

Nikon current has two different 55-200mm lenses:

If you're asking about the L110, it has a permanently-affixed lens and will not use either of the above lenses.

My lens will not focus. Pictures are all coming out blurry no matter what setting I have the camera on, and no matter how much I zoom in or nout.


Hi

You know sometimes the lens will not focus if you have a physical damage etc., first of all i would like to clarify some points.

1. Did you place your camera near to a strong magnetic area?
2. Did you drop the camera?
3. Did you use Zoom in Zoom-out continuously at the same time?

for the first point i am sure it was exposed to strong Magnetic field, as and when it is exposed the coil of the zoom lens which move the lens in and out will get out of place and makes it impossible to maintain focus. If so then better is to open the camera and re-adjust the lens. But if you are confident to put it back then open it or try to slowly wiggle the camera and check if it gets better.

I have a Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z80 Digital Camera. And my promblem is that once i zoom out everything is blurry. The whole picture is blurry but once I zoom out it is a bit better but not as much. I need...


Try cleaning the lens gently with a lens cloth or maybe a damp paper towel? Other than that - you may have something stuck in your lens that is making everything blurry when you zooom in...or the lens may need to be replaced to be fully functional. Do you notice any blurry spots when you zoom out that get bigger when you zoom in? If so something may be stuck in your lens. Good luck!

Just purchased it from bid tv it has 4xdigital zoom would i have been better to get optical zoom instead this is my first camera


Digital zoom enlarges the ccd image and will become more pixelated the more you zoom and optical zoom uses an actual lens to magnify the image coming into the camera. optical zoom is better than digital zoom.

your lens may be damaged...your zoom assignments may need to be realligned if there are no broken parts. If there are broken parts in your lens it may be better to get a new lens

I have a lumix DMC-F27 camera it will no longer zoom. No I not in movie mode.


Hi,

Do you mean DMC-FZ7?

I own one. Assuming that the camera is working normally, then I know two settings that will cause the zoom to be fixed.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Suggestion No. 1:

If the zoom is fixed at the wide end:

1. Turn the mode dial to "P". Now turn on the camera.
2. Press "MENU SET".
3. Press the up arrow button.
4. Now, a menu item named "CONVERSION" should be highlighted. Press the right arrow button.
5. A sub-menu screen should now pop up, select and set "OFF".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 2:

If the zoom is fixed at the telephoto end:

1. Follow Suggestion No.1.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suggestion No. 3:

If none of the above solve the problem, then the lens might have been knocked slightly out of position.

~If the camera has been dropped.
~If the camera has been thumped or banged.
~If while zooming, the lens was obstructed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The zoom motor also could have died, it costs about $50.00 U.S. at Panasonic.com.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My best advice would be to contact panasonic customer service.

No picture and lens does not retract


Well some cameras has features that does not use the LCD screen of the camera, because to save battery power or to get better shots with the focus ring.

You can just use the area where you focus your eye to aim and shoot the object of image.

Try to enabled the LCD screen feature.

The Zoom Lens Wiggles 3 times because it is programmed to zoom at the standard zoom size, this is totaly normal for camera in digital and analog types.

Hi
I had same thing. I took camera to bits and still didn't work. Then one day just before throwing it in the bin with batteries in and lens extended, I grabbed the outer ring (bigger part of lens near the body) and pulled it out a little further. I think there was a slight click then the red light turned green and everything was back to normal. Maybe I was lucky,but its worth a try because it definitely worked for me. Cheers John
