Like most point&shoot cameras the V15 doesn't give you much direct control. You can use the Portrait mode to narrow the depth of field and the Landscape mode to deepen the DoF.

Be aware that with such a short lens you won't see much difference. The DoF is dependent on the actual focal length of the lens, not its 35mm equivalent.

Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.

Maybe.
But it does seem to be a lens problem. Possibly the lens is out of sync as mentioned in another post here.If there is a grinding, the lens is probably damaged by dirt or sand.
Make sure the batteries or battery is fully charged.

The built-in memory only has about 8 pictures or so. You have to buy a memory card to insert in the same section where the batteries are inserted.

Can a pentax optio S5i support a 8GB memory card? Do I need to download a driver to support an 8GB memory card/


No the Pentax Optio S5i does not support an 8gb memory card.

8gb would be an SDHD card, the S5i came out before SDHD so it does not support them.

Standard Secure Digital Cards come up to 4GB in size so you could use one of these. The highest standard card I have is 2gb and that is fine in mine.

My S5i locks up if you put an SDHD card in.

The only firmware update that Pentax supply does not effect this, SDHD needs different hardware.

Hi,

Is the lens totally stuck? Does it even move a little? Did you try to power cycle the camera?

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem


Sounds like the LCD is faulty, but there are a number of things that can cause the LCD to play up too

Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.


Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

It is 12 years old - replacement will be far more cost-effective than service or repair.

What kind of an USB cable does the Optio 450 use?


You should get the original Pentax cable- the Pentax I-USB7 USB Cable for the Optio WPi, WP & S55 Digital Cameras. It's compatible with the 450 as well.

Optio 33WR Sluggish Buttons


I had the 33WR last year, and opened it up. My subjective opinion is that it cannot withstand the pressure underwater. Someone tried it and water got in.
