I realize most of these questions are kinda old, but I just fixed my Sea & Sea 860g focus problem and figured I should post what I did. The camera just stopped fucusing one day and I have tried everything, reinstalling the firmware, resetting the settings, playing with everything imaginable. Finally, out of frustration, and literally on my way to the trash can, I physically pushed the lens in about 1/2 an inch and turned it off. Since I had pushed it "out of gear" or something, the lens just floated free until I pushed it all the way in and turned it back on. Once It came back on, it must have recalibrated itself or something, the focus snapped in and now it works fine again... I had even emailed Sea and Sea for a fix and they said to just throw it out, nothing could be done, HA. Hope anyone else with this problem sees this, I know its very common for those camera.

Good Luck,

Drivers for the dx 8000g

If you mean the drivers to connect the camera to your computer, you should look for the CD that came with the camera. If you don't have the CD anymore, you could try the website from Sea and Sea, because there you also can download software. Perhaps they ask you to register the camera first, but having a serial number is the most they will ask.
view the link and look under support quick links.

I bought a 2g sdhc memory card for my sea and sea dx-860g today and I get a card error when I try to use it. Is this because it is an sdhc rather than an sd?

hello jwill..... your camera External memory: Supports SD/MMC cards

I believe you are correct in saying that it does not support sdhc. Joe

THanks for choosing Fixya!

My DX-860G won't format an 8 gig SD memory card. When I try, I get an error. Is there a limit on how large a card I can use?

Hello Mr Clownfish 33
  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Differnt focus for each eye?

    All binoculars (except some really cheap rubbish) have a different focus for each eye. There are two types. Binoculars that have two individual eyepieces that turn and no center focus wheel. This is common to military, astronomy and binoculars used at sea.

    The other is the usual center focus binoculars that have a wheel between the two barrels. They will also allow either the left or right eyepiece to turn to focus for one eye. The reason is that manufacturers take into account that each eye is slightly different.

    My Nikkor 70-300mm lens will not zoom

    First thing: Don't try to zoom it at all anymore. The mechanism inside is broken or somehow disconnected, and you can make it worse by trying. Please take it in for repairs as a camera pro will need to look at it.
