Broken glass on the lens

The camera fell from the table and the glass cover in front cracked. There is another smaller glass deeper in the lens cavity which is fine. i tried to unscrew the cracked glass but the piece seems to be snapped into its position. Is this repairable?

Are you kidding? A camera lens are a group of various lenses inside. I don't think it's repairable, but I'd say take it to a local photography store and you can get free advice. I think I understood you, but anyone would have to see the damage in person. From here, I'd say you are in bad luck...it's a goner. Also cameras are not designed to take a big fall like that. There is probably more damage than just the lenses.

Zoom front lens glass broken,whats the replacement cost


I would get a new camera. A new lens with installation will cost far more then the camera is worth.

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even...


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).

I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop.

My lens is cracked on my flip cam, how do i fix it?


They aren't too hard to open up and take apart. There's a glass piece the covers the actual lens and I'm guessing that is what broke. Once the flip is in pieces you can remove the glass piece and it will operate fine without it. If you want to replace it, you can either get a broken flip and use it for parts, but there's a pretty sticky, tough ring of tape holding that glass piece in place. You could also try a very clear piece of plexiglass and cut it to size. Haven't tried that one myself, but it may work.

How to blur the background in picture taking?


Get another camera :-(

You want to reduce the depth-of-field so that the subject is in focus while the foreground and background are out of focus and blurred. Depth of field (DoF) is dependent on three factors: distance, lens aperture, and lens focal length.

The farther the subject, the deeper the DoF. If you take a picture of a distant mountain peak, the mountain behind that and sunlit the clouds on the horizon will also be in focus. If you get close enough to a flower, you might get the front petals in focus while the petals in the back might blur.

The smaller the lens aperture, the deeper the DoF. Landscape mode, for example, will try to use a smaller aperture in order to get everything in focus while portrait mode will try to use a larger aperture in order to blur the background.

The shorter the lens focal length, the deeper the DoF. This is the killer. Due to the small size of the image sensor, the EX-Z750 has a very short lens: 7.9mm to 23.7mm. Even at the telephoto end of the range, 23.7mm would be considered very wide by film photograpers. A 24mm lens would give film photographers a sharp shot from foreground to horizon and, unfortunately, you're seeing that as well.

Note that the DoF is dependent on the actual focal length, not the 35mm equivalent you may have read about. This is a law of physics, not something that lens designers can easily alter.

The lens cracked. The camera still works but the picture shows cracks. Is it possible to repair it?


The same thing happened to mine. Customer support was useless, telling me I voided my (expired) warranty by breaking it, and that it is not a replaceable part.

Here's the fix that worked for me:

If you look closely at the metal bezel around the lens, you will see a seam between two metallic parts, near the front surface of the lens.Take a knife and gently work it around that seam until you separate the two pieces. They are held together with doublestick tape, so they come apart easily. That will expose the lens which is actually not a lens at all, it's a window; a flat glass disk. Take the tip of a pointy knife and gently pry the glass piece(s) off. Again, this is held on with double-stick tape so it will come off easily. If you can find a glass disc that is the same diameter and thickness, you can place that in. The disc is a 20mm diameter by 1mm thick. You can probably order a replacement watch crystal from somewhere like this place:

http://www.esslinger.com/roundmineralglasscrystalx1mmthick.aspx

They cost less than a dollar (not including minimum orders, shipping, etc), and they are probably more scratch/crack resistant.

If you don't want to bother replacing it, your camera is still fixed, just a bit uglier and vulnerable to dust. The front lens has no optical significance, it's just a dust cover and/or a design element.

The metallic bit you took off is little more than a piece of tin foil.
Had they used a more substantial part that could divert shock instead of directly transferring it to the glass, there would be far fewer cracked lenses out there. But that would probably hurt their "go buy a new one" repair policy.

Lens won't retract


what you have suffered from is what is called impact damage. The gears inside of the lens are either broken damaged or out of alignment. You can't fix it yourself, but you can get it fixed. There may also be other issues with impact damage, focusing, and you will probably need a re-calibration

He can fix your camera, its cheaper to fix it than to get a new one.
