My lens has marks on it will this affect the picture?

I have a lens which hasn't been used for a number of years. However, I have just come to use it and notice that there are cobweb like marks on the lens which appear to be on the inside of the lens. Is there anyway that I can clean these or does it mean that the lens is now unuseable?

The cobweb marks are either
1. adhesive between elements failing
2. Fungal growth inside the lens barrel.
As to usability-
It is surprising what one can away with glass damage - scratches and the like
All you can do is to try it and see

My nokia5230 camera result is very bad please give me solution.

Although you can make pictures with a phone, don't expect the same quality you would get with a real camera. The quality can be influenced in a negative way, because most phones are in a pocket, without any protection for the lens. So the lans can be scratched or smeared with grease.
Check if the lens is clean. Never try to clean a lens with fluids like alcohol. Only use a soft cloth, you also would use to clean your glasses, or a small type of lens pen. Check if there are any scratches on the lens, with a magnifier glass. To improve pictures taken with a phone, make sure there is enough light. Poor light conditions can be affecting pictures made by a normal camera, so a phone will be even more affected.

I got new Sigma 18-200 DC II lens, with Canon EOS 5D Mark II it has black lens frame is visible through viewfinder or on the photo. Does it mean this lens is not compatible with 5DmrkII?

The EOS 50d Mark II is what's known as a "full-frame" camera. Its image sensor is the same size as a frame of 35mm film. The Sigma DC lens is intended for cameras with smaller sensors. The lens is compatible in that it will work with the camera to take pictures, but the pictures are cropped due to the smaller imaging area of the lens.

In order to use the full image sensor area you need to use full-frame lenses. In the case of Sigma, this means lenses without the DC designation.

Well I got a used tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 lens and I was told It has BIM so it can focus on my d3100 and well.. idk how to turn on the af? just a simple question

Nice lens, there should be a switch on the lens barrel fitted close to the camera body when the lens is mounted. It's between the 50 and 60mm focal length markings I'm going to add a picture but not sure how well it will show up. Also the newer Nikon's have some tricky auto focus motor that's fussy to what lens it's capable on auto focusing here is the picture. Happy New yeartri3mast_50.jpg

Error 99 on screen cant take picture intermitant

Error 99 is known as Abnormal Mirror operation. Follow the link for help;EOS-1D Mark III/EOS-1Ds Mark III: AF Accuracy Adjustment
EOS-1D Mark III/EOS-1Ds Mark III: Abnormal Mirror Operation (Err 99)

It should be noted that the AF accuracy adjustment advisory is in addition to the previous EOS-1D Mark III AF mirror adjustment service notice. Free repairs are being offered for customers affected by the "Err 99" mirror problem, and Canon is also providing free AF accuracy checks and adjustments for customers experiencing problems with soft focus when using any but the central AF point.

Finally, Canon Japan has published a new manual entitled "EOS-1D Mark III AI Servo Auto Focus Manual" aimed at helping owners understand and get the most from their AF system.

I have a VPC-E1075 when i take pictures I get a dark spot on the pictures even if if just view them. I cleaned the outside of the lens with a q-tip still getting the same thing

First thing, a q tip just may scratch the lens surface. Always use a special cleaning cloth or material made especially for lens cleaning.

This spot may be internal and not even on the lens. If you look at the lens from the front, you may see something inside, in which case the camera would have to come apart which is not a job you want to tackle. If the lens is taken apart, it will affect the focus and may not work right after that.
This spot may be a speck on the ccd under the lens. If that is the case, unless you want to spend repair cost, it may be better to sell the camera on Ebay as parts, as is for repair.

you may consider a repair, if it is fairly new.
You may want to call the company, if the camera has not had any kind of damage, for warranty possiblity.
Some cameras may have a warranty beyond a year. Worth calling the company and find out.

My nikon d80 f number keep blinking. what should i do? it doesn t want to snap any picture.

The "fEE" error indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. The lens may not be attached to the camera properly, or if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number of the lens) - which is normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this from occuring again.

Take it to a service centre for repair ASAP.

Depends on the exact issues you are having but it sound like the shutter magnet inside the lens is causing electronic noise and this is affecting your pictures. In Australia the shutter magnet only comes as a complete lens assy and is very expensive if the camera is out of warranty.

Water spot inside the lens on my Lumix camera


To take the lens off, the camera has to be dismantled, and unless you are an experienced technician, there is a 95% chance that the camera will have more problems than what it started with.

Have you taken any pictures with the water spot inside the lens? If it is visible in pictures, then you have several options:

1. Ignore it.

2. Leave it there and use an image editor to clone out the spot in the picture. (Recommended).

3. Take the camera to a repair shop, or mail it to Panasonic's service center. This is the expensive option, to remove the water spot, the price most likely will be well over $100.

4. Buy another camera. The FZ7 is rated to about 50,000 shots, so if you are approaching this number they it may well be worth it to just get another camera.

Unless the spot is seriously affecting your pictures, then leave it there. By having the camera opened there is a high chance that other problems will be introduced, such as: fingerprints,dust or hairs inside the lens or misaligned lens elements.

My FZ7's lens is full of dust, yet this is not usually visible in pictures, when it is, I can usually remove it on the computer.

I would recommend taking the camera to a service center as a last resort.

Dust Behind Lens on F707

That's odd. I had the 707 (may she rest in God's eternal peace), and never thought that dust could get behind the lens. Do you see the dust when you look through the EVF, or when you look at the lens itself? Either way, one way to test it is to set the camera to the smallest aperture (f/8), infinity focus, and shoot a clear blue sky. Open the picture in your editor program, and see if the dust shows up. That's a technique to use with an SLR to see if the dust inside would affect a picture, so I'm not sure if this will work with the 707.
