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.

Re: Fuji Finepix E550 no manual focus

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.

Exposure locked on manual

Is that 10 seconds? 1/10 second? f/10?

What happens when you turn the command dial? What happens when you hold down the exposure compensation button and turn the command dial?

Fuji finepix s1500 - difficult to get it to focus at close macro. I found that I have to have the lens at its widest angle for the camera to focus on a close subject - like at 2 cm like the manual says. If...

Yes. You won't have the same macro focussing ability at all focal lengths.

But usually the important thing is that it's not how close the camera can focus, but how large the image is, so you'll often find that a longer focal length (i.e. not wide angle) will produce a larger image of the object even though the camera has to further away to achieve focus. This also results in less distortion as extreme close-ups in wide angle produce extreme perspective distortion. It's why a wide angle close up of a face results in an exaggerated nose and mouth.

How do you change the shutter speed on the finepix s5500?

That depends on the selected shooting mode.

In Program AE, press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed/aperture combination.

In Aperture Priority AE you can control the shutter speed indirectly. Press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the aperture, and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.

In Shutter Priority AE press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. The camera will adjust the aperture to suit.

In Manual press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. You'll have to press left/right on the 4-way button to select the appropriate aperture.

I want to add lens to my fujifilm s5600 to take better pics

There are lenses available to add with an adapter ring. I have the wide angle lens (which I LOVE) and a 2x telephoto lens. The wide angle lens allows me to macro from several feet away. It is an amazing lens. The telephoto lens is something you really need to use with a tripod. But yes, there are lenses you can add to your camera.

Images are round not rectangular

If you are using an accessory telephoto lens, you will need to zoom out to about midway or further in order to fill the image frame.

An accessory lens called a "fisheye" may not cover to the edges of your image. Even wide-angle accessory lenses may show vignetting (a darkening of the corners) or unsharpness in the corners of the image.

My Fuji S7000 wont focus when I use a wide angle lens adapter.

I've since found out (via a Fuji forum) that the camera MUST be set to Super Forced Macro for the lens to focus ..... which it now does!

Need to find lense

I think the most prudent solution is to give up on the idea. What do you need that for? This lens already has a huge range of 28 .. 300 mm in film equivalents, and it is marginally useful at 300 mm. Whatever else you put on it will make it worse (less light, poor focus and aberrations). Similarly, at the wide end, while it is technically possible to add a wide-angle element to shorten the focal distance to about 20 mm, that will also result in a loss of light and poor peripheral focus, so you will be much better off taking 2-3 pictures and blending them whenever you need a wider angle. This lens is a miracle of optimization -- it already has the attachments you are contemplating, plus macro and super-macro. I don't think its range can be expanded any further without an unacceptable degradation of quality.

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.

Adapter ring cover problem

Maybe the adapter ring release button is stuck after you pushed it in to release the cover. Try giving it a good flicking until you are sure it has popped out.
