Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I...


To answer your questions, depending on how much use, (meaning how many snap shoots) will dictate whether your camera has reached its life expectancy. The proper procedure for long life with the battery is to have it totally drain out before charging it. If charged too soon the battery has a memory and will only work as long as the short period the battery was charged. It sounds like camera is worn out. Good Luck

The camera shuts down soon after starting. Turn camera on green light flashes. Screen says reading internal or memory card. Reset time date excetra. Screen goes black. Lens does not retract.

M42 adaptor


Quite right too. When the M42 adaptor is fitted there is absolutely no exchange of information between the lens and the body: M42 lenses pre-date all of those later developments. Your camera will also be unable to stop down the lens automatically when taking the picture, most M42 lenses don't even stop down automatically when connected to an M42 body.

You need to do things the old-fashioned way. Your camera needs to be set to meter manually, shutter priority mode may also be used. In manual mode you focus the lens as normal with the aperture ring set to the lowest aperture number (i.e.aperture is wide open).
You then make sure that the lens in in manual mode as well and stop down to whatever you want, if the image remains bright enough then you can adjust the precise focus using the hyperfocal principle if you like which takes advantage of the increased depth of field of a stopped down lens.
In manual mode, you then tell the camera what aperture you have set (read it from the lens barrel) and set the shutter speed using the camera's light meter to guide you. If using shutter priority mode then the camera will choose the shutter speed for you.
Check everything is set as you intend and press the shutter.

It all sounds long winded but is exactly how many of the world's greatest photos were taken and soon becomes second nature. You also learn far more about the relationship between aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings and will be able to talk about reciprocity like you know about it!

Squeaking when try to focus. will not focus


My lens is also doing that same thing... and I just posted pretty much the exact thing you said...Mine squeaks and goes in and out really fast.. I do know that you can put the camera on manual mode and focus manually on mine, but would like to have the auto focus sometimes too. If I dont get an answer soon, I may send it in... I believe its a motor problem in the lens....

Kodak easyshare dx4530 turns on then off


Hi there.

90 percent of the time when the lens malfunctions, it's due to grit or dirt in the lens mechanism. If you stored your camera in a camera bag, while you used the other camera, that could be your problem. Camera bags are great for holding dirt so it can get in your camera.
When the lens can't move, it may cause the camera to shut down. To fix this, use an air compressor. Put the nozzle to the camera and blow air into the space between the camera and the lens. Blow it out real good and try it again. You may have to repeat the process a couple of times. Hope this helps.

Problems taking pictures with nikon d40


Chances are good that it's not your camera, but your lens. In a darker atmosphere, you need a fast lens, meaning you need a lens that has a wide aperture (1.4 to 2.8) I'm guessing you're using a lens thats' 3.5 or larger. (Yes, the larger apertures have the smaller numbers)

If your camera was spending all it's time moving in and out trying to focus, it's probably because there was not enough light for the camera to distinguish a focal point. Same thing happens when you shoot a solid blue sky. No focal point.

Help me understand by telling me what lens you're using and what settings you were using on the camera.

Could be time for a new camera But check out Kodak Support first. It has been said that cameras in a certain price band[any make/model] are to be considered as disposable -like toasters and kettles I guess.

My Kodak camere was really not dropped. I put in new batteries and the camera only gives me one shot and I have to turn it off and try again. I can plug the camera into a charge cord and I can take all the pictures I want. Is it possible the 2 batteries are not enough to power the camera
