Lens focusing problem

I recently dropped my camera while it had my wide angle lens in it. everything seemed fine & the lens & camera both worked. today it won't work with the wide angle lens in it & makes a clicking sound when i try to take a photo. i tried another lens & it's fine. does anyone have any idea what it might be that i could fix without taking it to a camera store? thank you.

I was having problems trying to focus with my 55-200 lens. I switched the lenses to make sure it wasn't the camera. When i switch to manual focus and it worked fine. I took it to the local Nikon dealer to se if they could do anything with it and while working on it, the fornt part of the lens fell out in his hand. My problem is, i purchased my camera in the states and Nikon Canada wont deal with it even though it is under warranty. It appears that the lens has come away from the tracks and no matter what I do I can't get it back in place. Can anyone help?

Dropping a camera is no laughing matter.  I assume you have severely damaged the wide angle lens, and the only solution I have it to purchase another one.   Certainly if the front element fell out that is serious and there are probably other things wrong with the lens, and continued use of it could damage the camera body.   Just be more careful and chock it up to experience and buy a new lens. Sorry to hear about your accident.   Good luck.

If you're looking at the camera without a lens on it, there should be a little flat protrusion in the lower left. Make sure that it is protruding and not obstructed.

Have a canon digital elph sd750. Pictures are now blurry.


You could have cracked the lens, damage the focus or a number of other things but the lens and focus are most likely. check your lens for scratches if there is none and no cracks take it to your nearest camera store or buy new good luck!

HELP Sigma 24-60MM wide Angle


The helicoid or the barrel thread in the lens may be jammed. The lens will have to be serviced. You should take it back for warranty service.

As for myself, I aways buy origional manufacture lenses and accessorites for my cameras.

Wide angle/fish eye lens


Hey matty reps,
I found one wide angle lens attachment that should work for your camera and I have attached a link to it so you can see what you think. I have little experience with these types of lens attachments, and have heard they're not nearly as good as having a wide angle/fisheye lens that mounts directly to the camera. If you don't mind losing autofocus you can usually find very cheap manual focus lens that are very high quality lenses for sale at some local camera shops. I hope this helps!

Lens focusing problem


I doubt that there is anything you can do yourself. Are you willing to disassemble the lens? I wouldn't be willing to do so.

Take it to a camera repairer and get a quote to see if it is economical to repair or cheaper/easier to replace.

Good luck.

Focus problem


The factory presets would not have been affected by your grandson doing as you describe. Depending on what other lenses he might be trying to use, many have a separate switch located on the barrel of the lens to turn auto focus on or off.

Wide Angle Lenses


wide angle lens aka fish-eye lens, means only the centre of your photo is clearly focused - especially in long distance scenery shots.

The macro is good at 4cm at wide angle, 8inches at full telephoto(different distances for any focal length in between). I read that someplace in the manual, I believe.
