Is the 55-200 also a "macro" lens with a switch or something to set it for "macro"?

My Nikon p80 has difficulty focusing in low light. Also, the white balance is difficult to control and most low light photos are too yellow.


Seems to be interesting.
For low light focusing problem here is the solution which works with any digital camera.
I have observed that P80 has a slow focusing symptom. If you are in TELE range that is lens out. Then you will be hitting this issue very frequently.
Check if you are not restricting that red light bulb from throwing the light on your subject.This light is to assist the camera to focus.
Try doing this. Illuminate the object with a small/capable torch. Sometimes AF assist lamp is not doing the job.
another solution is focus in small steps. move lens out a little half press the focus/snap button. repeat this till you get the desired frame. This somehow helps camera to focus difficult objects.

White Balance:
Nikon P80 has good white balance functionality. But if you do not get what you want you need to set the WB manually. Here is the procedure to set white balance manually.
Procedure:
You need to select the preset manual for this procedure. Keep a white colored object with you always. This should be of size of a playing card at minimum.
when you will select the manual white balance preset. it will show you the measure option. Keep your white subject in front of the lens and press measure such that the camera view is filled with that white object's view.
Now you are ready to go. Your Camera will take the pictures just right.

Operating instructions for dsr pd177p sony video camera. I am not in postion to operate the camera, please guide how to operate the camera.


It is not very easy to say few lines to tutor ,but learn to use only by experience.Put the battery on for charging.Once fully charged slide the power switch to camera.Open the lens cap ,open the view finder display.Now you can see the picture on your screen.Set the camera to auto focus.show the camera to a white screen so as to white balance the camera.Now point at an object and do a trial Zooming using the auto zoom with your finger.The image will come closer and you can draw it to white screen.Having an object in view on the white screen,press the record button.Slowly move the zoom forward to get the right frame of the object.Press reccording button once again to stop.Repeat the process on different scenes.
Now shift the mode switch to play and rewind and play the reccorded portion.Practice.

Sony Cybershot DSC-H2 Blurred image


Something in the lens unit is broken. The unit can't be fixed but needs to be replaced with a new or unit unit. A new lens unit would cost about half the price of the camera though...

I can't get the macro adapter to work ?


Put the macro adapter on the camera and move the camera in and out from an object to try to focus the object in the display. Remember, macro is very small, very close and very small field-of-focus. I hope this helps.

Error Code FE E


Make sure the F-stop ring on the lens is turned to the minimum aperture setting. Usually 22 or 32. The camera won't allow you to shoot unless it is. It will try to warn you by flashing the FEE code.
