When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture ondisplay, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacingbatteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restartingcamera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.

Try aneasy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them)while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the modeselector.

If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • Main board faulty.
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair frommanufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

Manual for PHD-67W wide angle lens with macro


There doesn't seem to be one.
You just screw the adapter onto the front of any lens with a 67mm filter thread and it will expand the field of view.

I have a Nikon D-40 I'm currently using a 55-200


Fisheye is the extreme of a wide angle lens. I think you are not using a fish eye lens, but a fish eye adopter. That is a lens that will "shorten" the focal length of a lens most of the time with 30 % sometimes with 50% when you put it in front of your lens. So you could make a 24 mm lens look or act like a 12 mm.
On your tele lens this only will slightly shorten the 55 mm, but even 50 % of 55 is 27 mm and can't be seen as a fish eye.
I think when you put this on a short lens, the picture you get will be round, like you were using a real fish eye.

Pro and cons of wide teleconverter lens


Great question! The Pros: -Gives you a wider angle of view on your built-in lens -Gives you the potential to have a shallower depth of field when you zoom in on an object. This is a lens effect which makes objects behind the subject appear less in focus than the subject in the foreground - can be a positive if you're trying to have a more cinematic-like effect
The Cons: -Apparent lens distortion around the frame edges. You'll notice a "bowing" effect happen. -Increased ability to have dust and scratches on your lens. Make sure both the front and rear element are clean! -Possible increase in light glare. If the sun is in the background, expect to see more lens-flare effects due to the lack of a lens shade, and the increased number of glass elements that the light needs to pass through.
Personally, I like having the wide angle adapter in my pro-sumer video camera kit because it gives me another option when I'm in close-quarters. If you can avoid lens flare, it will be great addition to your camera.

Do they make a converter for cannon len to fit fugi


Depends what you mean.

The Fuji s7000 is a fixed lens bridge camera, so you can't remove the lens and use an adapter and fit other lenses.

All that you can do is to git supplementary telephoto, wide angle and extreme close up (macro) lenses to the filter thread on the end of the lens; if you use what's called a reversing ring you can then (within reason) mount pretty much any SLR lens backwards onto the front of yours. The reversing ring screws into the filter threads of each lens and will be quoted in two sizes: these will be whatever the filter thread diameter is on each lens. By mounting a lens backwards, you effectively end up with an extreme macro lens, but it all depends upon which lens you choose. The reverse mounted lens will just be a dumb bit of glass, there will be no focus or aperture control and no communication of any information back to your s7000.

Hope that I've helped, if so please rate my answer.

Cant seem to fit the converter to a 50-500mm ex sigma lens ?


It all depends upon the lens. Not all lenses can accept teleconverters, usually due to projecting rear elements incorporated into the individual lens design. With such lenses, manufacturers will either advise that a particular lens will not be compatible with a teleconverter or for some models may produce a custom matched model usually for that lens alone.

Hi, what would be ther better choice a digital concepts 2.2 telephoto lens or a kodak 1.4x teleconverter lens for a kodak p850 digital camera


The 2.2 would be a stranger lens, more than doubling the power of the Kodak camera lens; whereas the kdak 1.4x converter onlyincreases the lens sttrength by about 40%.

Lens problem on my dsc-w1 sony digital camera


You might not believe and I don't think that this happens with all the same cameras, but I have the same camera and what I did was connect the cable to my printer (hp psc 1315 all-in-one). After I connected it, it was working fine, but I still thought that I wouldn't be able to take pictures...But I turned it on and it worked perfectly! It's amazing! I did this 3 weeks ago to see what happened and I fix my camera without even trying to do so! The only thing that bothers me is that it keeps saying that the batteries are low, although they are recharged...but you can take pictures and do what ever you want!
