    thank you!
    I'm using a Nikon D200 and in this case a 18 - 70mm nikkor lense.
    The problem is not apparent when I use an 80-200 f/2.8.
    At this moment I am not sure whether it is a lense related problem or whether it is to do with the camera.

    And...no there is no smudge on the lense atleast!

    regards

Hello,
Below are a few suggestions, each will depend on whether you have a digital SLR or a compact point and shoot. (an SLR has a removable and interchangable lens)
First, I would suggest checking to make sure there isn't a smudge mark on the lens at the front of the camera, all too often this simple solution is overlooked.
Next (and not as nice to deal with) is if you have an SLR, your mirror may have shifted, or may have a smudge or dust on it. You are able to clean it yourself but you need to be incredibly delicate with it as it is a free moving part and can be wrecked easily.
For either DSLR or Point and Shoot: your sensor inside the camera may either have been shifted or you might have a defective one. Either way, there is unfortunately no easy fix but instead you need to bring it to an authorized service dept to have someone take a look at.
If you have a DSLR: Try attaching a different lens and see if you have the same issue, if not, it's the body and is likely either the mirror (see above) or the sensor (see above).
If you have a point and shoot: there is a middle focal lens that you aren't able to access in the barrel of the zoom lens, there is a chance that it has shifted or has fallen out of its place along the right side. You'll need to bring it to a repair depot to have someone take the device apart and check.
I hope this helps!

    Hello,


    If the issue exists with one lens and not the other, the issue is definitely tied into your 18-70mm lens. It's likely that your focal lens inside the casing has either shifted or is not sitting in it's threads properly any more, you will need to have it repaired. *NOTE* Nikkor Lens' do come with 5 years manufacturer warranty, you can contact Nikon to find the closest service depot or retailer to send the lens out for repair.


    **Retraction** In my initial solution I had said "if you have the same issue, if not, it's the body and is likely either" What I meant to say was "if you have the same issue, if not, it's the lens and NOT the body"


    Have a great weekend!

Hi there. i owned a Canon EOS 60D model camera. The problem is, its AF option is not working except Auto n 'C' modes. While i am trying to use it in M mode with AF, its not working but in auto mode an


Are you sure you did not put the AF/ MF switch in the wrong position? Although I don't think it would focus in Auto mode. In all other modes, are you sure you selected a (or more) focus point(s) in the centre of the frame?
When the selected focus point is on the side of the frame it won't focus on the parts you want it to focus. Then while pointing to the point you want the camera to focus, please press the shutter release button half and what till it focusses. Then press it the whole way down. Be aware the camera needs enough light to focus and certainly can't focus with a lens wit a min aperture of 6 or a larger number. On your 18-135 you can shoot at f16 because it will first focus on wide open and only close the aperture after you pressed the button.

How to recalibrate scream. Image too wide I loses part of the image of each side of the screen (right and left)


before you think about recalibration or any electrical adjustments . lets review one is the whole picture over scanning the screen did you switch it into a different format like wide screen check that you may want to get the owners Manuel out for the help there. option two . you cleaned the optics now the picture is to wide ? did you loosen the lenses on top of the tubes ? there are wing nuts that set the static focus on the three picture tubes did you move them or loosen the look at which color is over scanning if its all of them then id suspect a format change using the factory remote its simple to switch it back the mouse pad on the remote is the 4 arrows with the center push button by left or right it will walk through those modes . let me know how that works out please .

I bought the 10x25 camera binoculars and only one lens will focus using the center dial. Its almost like the other one needs to be focused at the eye piece itself. The pictures are not clear and are...


It is common for binoculars to have one independently focusable eyepiece.  If one eyepiece can be rotated, then that is the case.
If that is the case, focus through the one that DOES NOT rotate using the center control until you get a sharp image on that side.  Then rotate the eyepiece on the blurry side until the blurry side is sharp.  If you succeed at this, from henceforth the center control will focus both eyes adequately

Fuji finepix s1500 - difficult to get it to focus at close macro. I found that I have to have the lens at its widest angle for the camera to focus on a close subject - like at 2 cm like the manual says. If...


Yes. You won't have the same macro focussing ability at all focal lengths.

But usually the important thing is that it's not how close the camera can focus, but how large the image is, so you'll often find that a longer focal length (i.e. not wide angle) will produce a larger image of the object even though the camera has to further away to achieve focus. This also results in less distortion as extreme close-ups in wide angle produce extreme perspective distortion. It's why a wide angle close up of a face results in an exaggerated nose and mouth.

The focus between the two lenses is not synchronized; when I zero the eyepiece lenses and try to use the center wheel to focus, I can only get one clear image at a time.


Here's how:
Focus the left side first.
Close your left eye and now rotate the right hand eyepiece (dioptre ring) until the right hand side is clearly focused.
Open both eyes! Surprise! both sides should now be in focus simultaneously!!

My FM10 focus screen does not focus, but split image works


I have seen bent mirrors and mis-aligned focus screens do this. It is possible for the film plane to be in focus while the viewfinder is out. you can test this with newspaper and a tape measure. buy a cheap roll of neg film and set up your camera on a tripod at a fixed distance, say 6ft. from the paper. Ideally I'd attach the paper to a light stand or the back of a chair. so that the paper is at 6ft, the back wall is at maybe 10ft. and there's something in the foreground in case its front focusing. then set the lens at what the scale says is 6ft regardless of what the viewfinder looks like. Shoot one frame with an aperture of f/2.8 on your 50mm. Shoot a second frame at f/16. rewind the film & develop it at a drug store or 1hr lab. if both images are sharp, the problem is in the mirror/ prism. if the 2.8 is OOF it's the mounting ring. I want you to shoot the F/16 to prove that the stop down lever is functioning.

Conversion lenses & filters


These screw on the front of the plastic lens adapter and adjust the focal length. On the side of the adapter lenses it will quote the ratio. My wide angle says 0.66x so just multiply the range of focal lengths by this figure and you will see that it adjusts the camera zoom accordingly - making the image wider and probably also increasing the depth of field (what is in focus). Similarly a 1.5 tele will inrease the range of focal lengths to make the lens "longer" eg higher magnification , useful for astro photography - shots of the moon and terrestrial long distance work but detracting from the depth of field, eg the range of distance over which objects are in focus will be reduced.

The wide angle will allow you to come in close and get WIDE objects fully in-frame- hence "wide angle", while the telephoto will give you better overall maginification of the image but will probably increase the MINIMUM focal length - eg you may not be able to focus on objects closer than >2m (instead of ~1).

The screw-on adapter lenses I found were cheap in a Jessops sale use a 52mm thread, while the S5500 provides a 55mm internal thread. I use an appropriate 55mm to 52mm step down ring adapter. There is slight vignetting (shading around the edge of an image) at certain combinations of zoom, but generally these are very useful accessories.

As these are adapter lenses on the front of an already powerful 10x zoom that must be optically compromised at the price of this camera, there maybe some colour fringeing around bright images. If you want a better solution you really need to get a DSLR. Overall a good solution for the price.

THE D100 REFUSED TO SHOOT THE PAINTING IN THE INSERTED IMAGE. CAMERA IN ALL OTHER RESPECTS WORKING FINE. TRIED ALL MODES.


When you say you tried full manual, I just wanted to check that you also switched to manual focus? The D100 has a switch on the right side of the lens, says M, S, C, for manual, single, or continuous focus? You need that in M with a painting like that, or to should truly diffuse subjects like clouds or fog.

The reason it works fine with only part of the painting in frame is that the camera can then identify and focus on the edge of the painting. It could also focus on any painting with linear or sharp detail. Autofocus is rather clever, but not clever enough!

If you had indeed set manual focus, then I admit I'm stumped. Full manual mode with manual focus never refuses to trigger the shutter on my D70; although it does often take pictures I don't understand at first. :) Good luck -- let us know what you find out, please!

IESP auto focus


iESP is the default auto focus setting for the C-8080 Wide Zoom camera. It uses a contrast detecting system to analyze the entire image by comparing the subject against the background to achieve focus. When the shutter button is pressed half way on the C-8080 Wide Zoom, the AF target mark automatically moves to an area of the image where it finds the optimal contrast.
