Question about FujiFilm FinePix S2940 18X Ultra Zoom 14MP Digital Camera Gift Bundle
I've had the camera not quite two years and in the last month or so, it has all but stopped taking photos when the shutter button is depressed. I thought maybe my settings were off, so I set it back to factory settings (I think). Still doesn't help. It doesn't matter if I take close up photos (I make jewelry and mainly use it for that) or long distance photos like scenery pics. Takes forever to get a picture to take. It focuses and refocuses several time and just when you think there is going to be no pic, it takes one. Any ideas?

SOURCE: focus error

After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

SOURCE: I have a brand new Finepix S8100fd camera and the majority of the photos are speckled no matter what setting I use. However the super macro setting rocks and pictures are super clear! My Fuji 7.1 mega
Common issue with the A8100fd. The most likely problem you are having is not enough light. Try shooting in bright sunlight to test the "graininess". Make sure you use the flash anytime the light is not bright. Even though the camera will shoot in low light (without flash), because it defaults to a high ISO setting, which (just like film) accentuates the "grain", or more properly termed in digital photography, "noise". Set the camera for a low ISO setting and use the flash whenever you see the "red hand" symbol on the screen.

Auto mode in poor lighting (generally always indoors without flash) sets high ISO, which produces ugly amount of noise (graininess). What you need is to keep the ISO under 200 by either:
Shooting well lit scenes, using flash etc.
Uusing one of the manual programs (M, S, A, P) and setting the sensitivity via the F-menu.

Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The
shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be
re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All
that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily
purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or
bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open
it up for you.
We have two F30's and they both have been dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking photos.
