Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder

1 Answer

Zoom is stuck

My Handycam is great except the focus is stuck on extreme zoom-in. Neither of the two wide/telephoto buttons will work. It needs a new lithium battery....does that control the infrared light beam too? or will changing the battery not affect my problem? When I turn the camera on, I can see the lens retract but then it comes right back out and stays there.

What do the letters w and t at top of camera back mean


These mean Wide and Tele, for the zoom. There should be a rocker switch nearby that operates the zoom lens. You don't say what camera it is, so I can't be more specific.

Purchase Zoom Lenses


Canon currently makes super Telephoto lenses from 300mm to 800mm and a number of zoom Telephoto lenses from 28-300 to 100-400. You can also special order a 1200mm lens from Canon at a cost of $99k! (There are only about 20 such lenses made so far.)

You can also get a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter to further increase the power of a telephoto lens. However, the cameras are unable to auto-focus when the minimum f-stop exceeds f/8, which can happen when you use one (or both) of the teleconverters on these longer lenses, so you have to manually focus the lens.

You can also get telephoto lenses from other manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma that are built to work with Canon cameras. However, the Canon lenses are generally regarded as the best quality.

Optical zoom


Hey needacamera,
The range of an optical zoom lens refers to how wide angle to telephoto the lens covers. An example of a 6x optical zoom would be an 18mm-108mm lens, which covers wide angle to telephoto. An example of a 3x zoom lens would be an 18mm-54mm lens, which would provide a capability of capturing images from wide angle to normal views. To calculate the x factor of an optical zoom you would divide the largest number by the smallest number on your zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Panasonic lumix dmc-fx01 won't focus


See the post for the same camera: "Buttons stopped working": there is a small 2 position switch connected to the zoom button. In my camera the zoom switch was stuck in one of the extreme positions. You have to put it back in the middle an re-assemble.

Losing focus


Usually this is a back focus problem; also called a flange back adjustment.  If the back focus adjustment is possible on this camera, zoom out wide - open iris all the way - and adjust focus and lock position.
