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

Need information and Instruction Manual for a Vintage Bushnell 300mm camera lens

This is not a zoom lens, it is a fixed focal length of 300mm telephoto, so the focus ring will not slide back and forth, merely rotate. It is also manual focus. If you google it, you may find a manual, but doubtful - best bet is to get a book on basic photography and read up on telephoto lenses there.
Update - allegedly made by Tokina, so should be a reasonable lens.

This lens makes a whirring noise when attached to the camera body. It will not focus in either manual or automatic. The camera works well with the other lens.

Sounds like the focus mechanism is broken on that lens. There's a small screw on the back of it where it meets the camera body, the motor in the camera body turns that screw to autofocus. To me it sounds like the screw is turning, but the lens isn't focusing. You said it also doesn't focus in manual mode, so there is probably something inside the lens that needs repair or replacement. Your best option is to take it to a camera repair shop and ask them for an estimate, camera lenses are not the kind of thing you can take apart and fix on your own. Hope that helps.

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.
