You can't, it's power zoom only, even with a lens attachment.

My fujifilm s1000 keeps showing "zoom error." I don't know what happend. It's like one day it's working, the next not. I have a family member graduating Friday and can't afford a new camera. I've taken out...


If you try turning on the camera with the lens cap on, you may get zoom error. Ensure that you are removing the lens cap before turning on the camera.

If the autofocus ring is held while taking the picture, or operating the lens this will also cause the Zoom error message coming up.

If that is not the problem, then the lens has troubles extending. This may happen because of dust stuck in lens mechanism, or because of a mechanical fault concerning the lens.
Any cause preventing lens from full extention or retraction will trigger zoom error.

Here a basic manual in PDF format.

Lens keeps getting stuck/needs a good tug to zoom past 25 HELP!

Hi Rachael_amor, If the lens will not zoom on the camera will it off the camera? If not then it has some grit, dirt, and the like in the lens. You could attempt to vacuum around the zoom however, I suspect it will need to go in to Nikon. That lens is not well weather sealed, it is a inexpensive consumer lens.

How to digital zoom

The camera has a 15x optical zoom. Once you've reached the threshold of the lens (optical zoom), the digital zoom kicks in (if you have the option turned on - see manual for details pg.104).

According to the manufacturer, the digital zoom is "Approx 5.7x." (see Specs, below)

Do keep in mind that digital zoom only enlarges an area of the true picture; you actually lose pixels (resolution). Here's more info from Wikipedia about the digital zoom option:

-You'll need Adobe Acrobat for this file. They are a well-trusted and secure name. You can download the viewer for free from their site:

I hope this is useful to you. Happy shooting!

AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached

I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.
