You mean the focus is ok but when you zoom the lens, the movement is tight. Due to friction the iron guide rods on which the inner lense assembly moves get bend. an expert repairer will solve the problem in no time.

When I look through the lens at the top everything appears blurry but when I open the lens door everything appears clear. Why?


On the left of the viewfinder, there is a little wheel. That is the diopter adjustment, which must be adjusted for your eyes. Rotate the wheel until things look in focus when you look through the viewfinder. The diopter wheel on the SX10 IS is prone to move when you take your camera in and out of the case, so it may need readjustment regularly.

Turns on for 1/2 second and turns off


It sounds like the focus element inside the lens is stuck. This is usually either due to an impact knocking the elements out of alignment, or to sand/debris entering the focus motor's gear drive and preventing it from rotating. The buzzing sound you hear is the focus motor attempting to rotate, but buzzing up against some obstruction. When the lens extends, you hear a buzzing sound, and then the lens retracts - this is usually the cause of the issue. Unfortunately there is not much you can do externally to fix this problem. The camera will need to be taken apart and repaired by a professional or by the manufacturer. David Millier http://advancecamera.com/repair

My DSLR slipped and landed on my feet. Now I can take pictures but i couldn't rotate my lens.What could be done?


The lens's zoom ring has been knocked out of alignment. This causes sticking at certain points along the zoom and focusing range, and may even influence whether the lens can auto-focus. In order to have this fixed, you should take it to a camera shop to have it repaired, or send it to the manufacturer. They should provide you a quote at which point you can decide if it is worth repairing or replacing.
For example, if it is a $100 lens new, and they want $100 to repair it, it makes more sense to simply buy a new one.
The other alternative is to simply treat your lens like a prime lens, that is one that has no zoom, and move the camera into the correct position for a shot instead of zooming.

My canon 20D autofocus doesn't work... can you tell me haw to do?? thanks..


Make sure your camera is set to Auto mode (top left knob). Check your lens and make sure it is switched to "auto" and not "manual"(sliding switch near base of lens). Make sure your lens can rotate and move without being obstructed. Clean the lens contact by removing the lens and use 99% alcohol or lens cleaner sparingly to clean off the metal contacts.
You can also check your viewfinder focus, it has a small dial upper right, that you can fine tune to focus to your own eyesight. If it is way off, your view will always appear to be out of focus.
Hope that helps.

I have a D90 and I just got, used, a 50 mm f/1.4 D lens. The lens motor sounds like it is working, but only moves the lens a small amount. Not enough to properly auto focus. It will manually focus,...


Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment, do not try to take the lens apart yourself. Take the lens in to a reputable camera shop and have their repair department do a CLA (clean-lube-adjust) on the lens.

Focus does not properly adjust leading to bad pictures. The zoom doesn't go in and out smoothly. The pictures appear like they have yellow shutters over them.


There is a focusing ring inside the lens, and when it gets dust, lint, dirt, etc. on it, it can jam. You can try spraying some compressed air ($4 at Walmart) into the lens assembly, to try to loosen it. There's probably the same thing happening with the gears on the zoom. Here is a web blog that talks about stuck lenses, and lens problems, and what you can try to get them fixed:

Makes weird noise while auto-focusing


The 18-135 lens focus system is driven by a motor in the lens itself. So there are moving parts inside it, not really gears and pinions and such, but similar. If it works fine and doesn't make the focus jumpy or stick anywhere, it's probably safe to wait a bit and see if it either goes away or gets worse. If it gets worse or the focus jumps, you just need to take the lens in and have it serviced. The mechanism could be out of alignment or need other adjustment.

The camera zoom got jammed


This can be caused by several different situations. Most commonly the camera has experienced some kind of impact which knocks an element out of alignment, preventing the lens from rotating normally. Symptoms of this include: *you may hear no mechanical sound at all when the camera is turned on *you may see visibly mis-aligned components of the lens *you may hear a loud "snap snap" sound as the camera tries to move the lens when the camera is powered on The second most common cause is a particle of sand getting stuck in the focus motor drive gears. This prevents the focus element from moving normally and causes the camera to shut off to prevent damage to the lens assembly. Symptoms of this include: *A loud "buzzing" sound when the camera is turned on, followed by the beeping and shutdown. Finally the third most common cause of this problem is a broken tooth on the zoom motor drive gears. Symptoms of this include: *the sound of the running motor with a regular "click click click" sound for several seconds. This will not be a "snap snap" sound, that is a different problem. *the lens will move in and out easily by hand as if free from any resistance. All of these problems require disassembly to repair. The charge is around $125 at my shop. Broken drive gears are generally This can be caused by several different situations.

Out of focus


Sounds like the camera is trying to focus if you hear sound when pressing the shutter halfway down or zooming. If the noise is a scraping or grinding sound, you might have debris stuck between the cracks of the lens and the camera body. This happened to me after i dropped my canon sd550 on the beach just once and it never recovered. Next to water sand has got to be one of a camera's worse enemy. Also, the lens might be cocked a bit which would prevent the camera from focusing and zooming smoothly. Try gently adjusting the the lens. Sometimes the slightest imperfection in the lens will throw everything off. Good luck!
