Question about Fuji FinePix E550 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Fuji Finepix E550 no manual focus

Even though the manual says to push the exposure compensation button then the wide/telephoto lens to activate the manual (MF) feature, it just doesn't work for me in any mode (P,A, S, etc.). I'm stumped. Any help will be most appreciated.

It works fine for me. Reember it works ONLY in P mode. The problem is due to the Fuji E550 does not provide focus indicator, you have to judge the image to see when the object is in right focus.

I just got a Bower Elite series 4.7x Xtreme high definition AF telephoto lens for my Nikon L810. Installed but it won't focus correctly. Does the camera need to be taken off auto focus, if so how?

It's not actually a telephoto lens, it's a telephoto adaptor. I have used something similar, though not this actual model, and only on MF lenses. Have you tried at all focal lengths of the zoom - it may only operate within certain limits. If it happens constantly, then you may need to switch to manual focus.

I have a Canon Rebel T2i; when I bought the camera, it came with a Canon EFS 18-55mm lens. This lens had worked perfectly for me for a year; though one day when I removed this lens to use a telephoto lens...

Sorry, but there's nothing you can do as that's a professional repair only.

Your fix options are to replace the lens, or to send it to Canon for a repair (usually fixed cost) or to simply learn to live with manual focus until you can afford one of the first two options.

You might even prefer MF as you always focus upon what you want rather than on what the camera thinks you want. The extra few moments it takes to capture an image often result in more thought and better compositions as well and you get a far longer battery life.. Personally, I very rarely ever use AF.

I have a nikon 5100. The lenses have a on/off button and two others. How and when do I use them?

This is the 18-55mm lens? That lens only has a "A-M" switch to go between auto and manual focus. Some lenses have an on/off switch for the Vibration Reduction (VR) feature, and some of them have another switch to turn on/off active VR.

Vibration Reduction compensates for camera movement. This lets you hand-hold the camera at slower shutter speeds. Active VR allows camera movement in one direction while compensating for movement in other directions, allowing for panning.

I bought this canon rebel t2 film camera recently and used film with ASO 400. Portraits look ok. but the landscapes, especially the sky area look dark and grainy. I used ef 28-135mm usm lens. Any solutions...

That's odd that the pictures would be coming out under exposed unless the previous owner has gone into the camera functions and switched the ISO from auto to manual. Another reason is that the exposure compensation has been activated and set for - exposure

Under "normal" use the camera will read the DX code on the film canisters and adjust the ISO automatically. However the previous owner may have shut this off in preference to setting the ISO manually. Even though you have ISO 400 in the camera the ISO on in the camera setting may be ISO 1600.

Checking for the Auto ISO and exposure compensation is fairly easy as you can see the film canister through the film window or you know you have loaded 400 speed film. on the LCD panel at the back of the camera is an ISO icon and exposure compensation.

Make sure the ISO for the camera is the same as what you have loaded and if the exposure compensation is to the right of 0 then the resulting picture will be dark. Move this back to the Zero.

I wasn't able to find an exact manual (if you don't have one) for your camera but have found a camera with similar. Here is a ling for that manual.

Hope this was a help

The built in speedlight on my D 70S is not synching. Seems like the flash goes off before the shutter opens.My pictues all comes out dark no matter what I try. Can you help me?

I fixed this same problem with my D70s today, after twelve months of getting dark pictures despite the flash firing. It started syncing properly after I performed the following, though I'm not sure why as I was just mucking around.
- Set Program to P. - Push button to activate built-in flash. - Push, and keep depressed same button, which will put you in Flash Exposure Compensation mode. - My Flash Exposure Compensation was on +0.3 so I set it to 0.0 by turning the front wheel. Seemed to fix it.

Over-exposure with AF Nikkor 70-300 telephoto

Friends have you tried not using the A-Aperture mode?? Set in on P-for Program or M-for Manual, this should produce the colors you are hoping for. If your photo is still "hot" use the + or - button called the Exposure compensation button on the top of the camera, push that little button and turn the outside main control dial where your right thumb sits 1 third stop at a time, (you have 4 to 5) The + adds light to your photo and the - will make your photos darker play with that and let me know.

Exposure compensation problems

The exposure compensation stays where you leave it unless you do a full reset or a custom reset, and except when you're using scene modes. But you don't need to do a reset to cancel out an exposure compensation -- simply use the exposure compensation button to adjust the compensation back to 0.0EV.

The aperature error is due to the fact that the lens in not a constant aperature design. The settings on the LCD are assuming you are at full wide angle setting. As this lens moves towards telephoto, the aperature changes about 2/3 of an f-stop due to the mechanical movement of the lens elements. So a manual setting of f4.0 at full telephoto will be more llike f5.0 in reality. It is too bad Epson could not make the mechanical aperature adjust to compensate, but every nice feature costs something. I have not had any issue with the shutter speed changing. One guess is that the camera has shutter speed/aperature combinations that it can't achieve due to mechanical limitations, so it chooses the available combination. Another is that it wasn't in manual mode, but rather aperature priority mode and the final adjustments changed the speed.

Aperture Priority Mode - an undocumented feature

In addition to the "quirks" of the Landscape and Aperture Priority Modes (neither mode works as documented!)..... The camera also behaves differently in full Manual Mode (it changes the settings, whether you want it to or not to compensate for available light)... At lower Zoom Levels, the camera will adjust the Shutter Speed Only, to try and compensate for available light... For example: with the Camera preset to F5.6 Aperture, and 1/48 sec. shutter speed, the camera will adjust the shutter speed between a range of 1/30 to 1/291 sec, to try and "auto expose" the shot for lower or higher light levels, even though you're in manual mode. At an Aperture Setting of 2.8 and 1/48 of a second, the number of internal steps in shutter speed the camera is willing to take, increases dramatially - for example: shutter speeds up to 1/600 of a second, even though you have the shutter set to 1/48 in manual mode. The camera WILL NOT attempt to adjust the Aperture to compensate for proper exposure in available light (OR WILL IT??).... It depends on your Zoom settings! It won't if your're near to full wide angle, but IT WILL if you are using the Zoom. Once you cross some unknown zoom threshold (it doesn't have to be at full zoom), then the camera begins to change both the Aperture and Shutter speed to compensate for available light, even though you are in "Full Manual", versus Auto Exposure Mode. In Manual Mode, (as in Aperture Priority Mode), the amount of change the camera is willing to make to your settings, appears to be related to a preset number of internal steps, with the number of steps dependent on both Aperture and Zoom Settings, before it gives an EV Warning for Over or Under Exposure conditions.... The type (shutter speed only for wide angle, shutter and aperture for zoom) and amount (number of internal "steps" it takes to increase/decrease shutter speed and increase or decrease aperture), is dependent on the amount of zoom you are using for the current shot.

Exposure and flash problems

I assume your camera is the Olympus D520. This camera gives you very little control of the flash. The only thing available to you is the ability to change the Exposure compensation. I would experiment with raising the exposure compensation adjustment a few steps. This may or may not help. What you describe is quite common. The flash distance on small cameras is usually only about 10 to 12 feet and past that distance, it quickly falls into blackness. Some cameras have Slow Synchronizing which lets the lens stay open a bit longer past the flash. This adds light to the background. You might check the manual and see if your camera has that feature.
