Does the Nikon S8100 seem to have more lens error problems than other cameras?


Not really. It's extremely common on all similar designs from all manufacturers which have retracting/zooming lenses. The trick is to try and prevent the lens from ever being obstructed and to keep the camera in a camera case whenever it's not in use. Also avoid sand/beaches or similar areas as the camera isn't designed to cope with dirt which can get inside due to wind or being dropped.

None are robust, if they fail under warranty they get fixed or replaced. Outside of that you either fix it yourself or bin it and buy another as professional repairs usually cost more than buying another model.

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would...


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Where can we buy a broken lense on a canon powershot sx10is? The first lense part was broken.


You want a broken lens or a replacement lens? Try: camerasandparts.com since they stock all of the powershot parts. They're amazing if you need help with one of these, I believe you can even have them install the lens if need be and they service the powershots too. Good luck, that's the place if you need help with a powershot, that's all they specialize in. Best of luck

Where can i but a super wide lens for my cannon d400 eos?


There are a few places that I would recommend. If you are looking to buy new lenses, I would definitely suggest Amazon.com or Adorama.

If you are looking to buy some used lenses, I would highly suggest buying off of craigslist.org. Buying used lenses is best done locally.

Depending on how wide you want to go, I would definitely suggest getting the 17-40 f/4L or the 16-35 f/2.8L lenses. These however will cost you quite a bit of money since they are the top of the line lenses for the wide range.

Need to remove lense on Powershot 870 to clean dust out


I wouldn't advise that you do it yourself unless you did your homework and know how to take it apart. I would buy a air can dust blower and try to get rid of it like that, followed by a lens brush to clear away extra dabre.

If nothing works, take it in for a service by your local camera store or into Canon.

L.How important is it that I update firmware 1.0.4 to 1.08 on my 40D slr? 2. Is there an adapter that will work with FD lenses and the 40D?


The firmware update (Version 1.0.8) incorporates the following improvements and fixes.
1.Fixes a phenomenon in which Image Stabilization operation emits a sound when certain buttons are pressed, with the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens attached to the camera.
2.Fixes a phenomenon in which the Image Stabilization operation emits a sound from the lens when IS lenses are attached to the camera.
3.Fixes a phenomenon in which a part of the image looks unnatural when reviewed on the LCD.
4.Corrects errors in the Spanish and Norwegian menu screens.

So if your camera is working properly for your purposes, and you don't use any IS lenses, you don't really need to update the firmware.

In answer to your second question, I don't think so. All EOS cameras communicate with the lenses completely electronically, and so work with any EF or EF-S lens. You may be able to find an adapter which would physically match an FD lens with an EOS camera, but all settings would have to be done manually on both the camera and the lens, and it would definitely be trial and error. The metering function in the camera depends on receiving a lot of information from the lens to get the correct exposure.

Fuzzy, cloudy pictures


As basic as it sounds, is the lens dirty? The tiny surfaces of digital cameras' lenses really affect image quality. Also check the image quality setting to ensure you're shooting at a high quality setting.
