Question about Digital Cameras

I got a Panasonic NV GS150 and it has this annoying problem when it's on auto-focusing mode, and when zooming out to the furthest - while it's fixed and clear... ALL of a sudden the focus drop out. WHY is that so?

    So do you think it's worth fixing it? Because I sold it already on ebay which the customer found out... how much do you reckon it cost? do you think i should pay him to get it fix?

It is a regulation problem with the lens.

    You have a mechanical problem with lens/ zoom assembly.
    The lens usually have a mechanic stop to zoom in/zoom out. The stop it is blocking zoon out too late, and the zoom goes over from ranged focus. Insisting in zooming out to this extent may cause further damge to camera. The other problem, suddenly loosing focus is for same reason, the lens assembly is not well in place, mechanics are not stable and lose focus.
    The zoom must be taken apart and re assembled, there may be a missing part (spring, screw or other gear) that is causing the problem.

    If you fix it on an authorized service center it can be expensive. If I was in your shoes I would offer the buyer a partial refund on the object, standing on your description the camera can still work fine.

Why was DMC-FZ8 made so when in the"Motion Picture Mode" focus, zoom and aperture are fixed at the initial setting? Must now choose blurry or broken (start-stop/focus-restart...)video & sound.


Unfortunately no. You can get better video if you turn off auto focus and set the zoom position to the halfway mark . This set up will significantly improve your results.

When zoom in and out while on Auto Mode, the focus went off focus and took some time to adjust. How do I stop that from happening?


I would consider focus shift when zooming normal. Most small digital camera zoom lenses do that. If your auto-focus is slow, all I can suggest is patience or a newer/better camera.

Panasonic H-FS014042 not working with GF1


If you placed the lens correct, till it clicked while turning, it should work correct. Did you check if there was anything on the contacts, before placing the lens?
Can you focus manually? and is your camera in the auto focus mode?
I can't make more at this moment. Success.

I have an old Panasonic NV-GS150 camcorder which I am attempting to connect to my computer. The camcorder is not recognised however, the computer stating it is unable to download the drivers for it simply...


Panasonic maintains literature, help, manuals and drivers directly from their web site, here. The driver posted for download is for Windows XP Home Edition w/ Service Pack 2.

You should attempt to install it (assuming a Windows OS) and see if it works. If not, you can try running in "Windows XP compatibility mode" - if your version of Windows provides this support.

I hope this helps! Please take a moment to rate my reply - thanks!

Weird noises when it's on and zoom button noise picked up on vid


change auto focus to single focus mode,
since it is on continuous auto focus on default, it would focus all the time so you don't need to click half way before taking a picture

My canon eos 400d will not autofocus in creative settings.


Hey mate,

I've been having the same problem. It annoyed me during a day out once.

Set the camera in one of the Creative Modes.
-> Then go to Menu (the button on the left of the screen)
-> Setup 2 (thats the furthest menu on the right)
-> Custom Functions (3rd option down)
-> Go to function 4 and change it to "0: AF/AE LOCK"

Hope that helps mate :)

Cheers

Canon Powershot SX10 IS auto focus unreliable


I don't this its an error. I have used this Canon SX10 IS Camera for nearly a year now I haven't had this kind of problem.

Usually auto focus take few seconds to focus on object depending on distance and lighting. That might be the problem ?

Faulty focus


Have you tried changing the focusing mode to one of the other settings? I usually find central point setting best for zoom. Alternatively, you could try using Macro (the flower) setting - I leave mine on this all the time it's really the best general purpose mode.
