When I zoom in to take a picture I get it focused I hit the button and the picture shows up not zoomed?


How are you zooming in? If you are using a button to zoom, that is to check the focus: it's just enlarging the image for your convenience during focusing. In order to get a zoomed-in image when press the shutter button, you need to adjust the zoom ring manually on the lens barrel before taking the picture.

How to focus with vivitar v3800


Turn the focusing ring on whatever lens you're using. You can use either the split-prism in the center or the the microprism collar and matte screen around it. For the split-prism, turn the focus ring until the two segments of the image divided by the horizontal line in the center line up. For the microprism collar and matte screen, turn the focus ring until the image appears sharp.

Zoom ring on 18-55 mm lens is locked/stuck


Are you sure it's the zoom ring that's stuck, and not the focus ring? The focus ring doesn't move when the camera is in autofocus.
If it's indeed the zoom ring that's stuck, you can spend more money than the lens is worth in repairs, or buy a replacement (circa 35 dollars on ebay) for dreadfully cheap. Good luck.

Fuji Zoom Error Message


Ronald, There is no easy fix, you?ll have either disassemble and get dirty, or take to an authorized repair person. This zoom error problem is usually caused due to dirt or dust in the zoom mechanism. If you think you can handle disassembling the camera then grab a set of gentile screwdrivers and follow these instructions: You will have to remove a few circuit boards in order to get to the zoom mechanism.

Can I manually control the zoom and focus?


Yes. Zoom can be controlled either by a variable speed rocker control, or a zoom ring on the lens. Focus is either automatic or manual via a focus ring.
