Question about Canon PowerShot SX50 HS Digital Camera - Jap/Eng
If I zoom in, the zoomlens goes to 1200 mm but on the screen and the photo just to 1.3m-00 and the scenery is is not close-up ...it happened suddenly. I put it off and on and when it happened. It took the photo correctly. Did I push a button wrongly? Thanks xxxx
The "1.3m - oo" is the focus range at that focal length - 1.3 meters to infinity. If the scenery is not close up on the screen, you have activated the function which shows a zoomed-out view on the screen to help you find your subject, in case you lost it when zoomed in. When you depress the button to take the picture, the lens quickly zooms back in again to the right place. Read about it in the camera manual :)

SOURCE: zoom lens won't fully retract
This is a gradual breakdown of the zoom mechanism due to ingress of dirt or having had a knock. A repair will be expensive- Fuji support will advice.

Your zoom probably does not come out all the way and therefore you get some blurry shots. Had the same problem on a Panasonic camera. Solution: replace zoom motor and gears. Results=expensive. Goes beyond the value of the camera. You might want to buy another used A85 or newer digital camera.

SOURCE: Cannon G7 need help
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?
