Hey baileybear,
An element in a camera lens is one of the many optical lenses that are typically inside a camera lens. What your potential buyer is most likely asking is whether or not the optical lens is scratched. The best way to determine this is to hold the lens up to a bright light source and look directly through it. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Scratched lens


Without the right skills and tools it is almost impossible to correct assemble a lens. I'm not sure you can switch over a complete lens assembly, but I do advice to look at ifixit dot com, to see if they did unassembled the S7000 already, Then you can make up yuur mind if you have enough skills (and tools) to do it yourself.
If you don't see anything on the pictures you make, about the scratch, you also cold continue using the camera as is. Most of the time you only see a flair on the picture is a bright light hits the scratch.

Pro and cons of wide teleconverter lens


Great question! The Pros: -Gives you a wider angle of view on your built-in lens -Gives you the potential to have a shallower depth of field when you zoom in on an object. This is a lens effect which makes objects behind the subject appear less in focus than the subject in the foreground - can be a positive if you're trying to have a more cinematic-like effect
The Cons: -Apparent lens distortion around the frame edges. You'll notice a "bowing" effect happen. -Increased ability to have dust and scratches on your lens. Make sure both the front and rear element are clean! -Possible increase in light glare. If the sun is in the background, expect to see more lens-flare effects due to the lack of a lens shade, and the increased number of glass elements that the light needs to pass through.
Personally, I like having the wide angle adapter in my pro-sumer video camera kit because it gives me another option when I'm in close-quarters. If you can avoid lens flare, it will be great addition to your camera.

Scratched front lens element


Well, you cannot buy the front element by itself. The whole front optic set comes as a unit. You can call Canon USA, ask for parts,

1-800-828-4040
The part number you are inquiring on is: CY1-2800

Have you taking any pictures with the lens? usually it takes quite a bit of damage to effect images. The rear optics are the more sensitive glass on all lenses

I am looking for a lens cap that will fit a Fuji Finepix S2000HD digital camera


let me just say that fuji sells the products but doesn't stock replacement parts.. i contacted fuji and they set me an email to call the 800 number. called and they refered me to another 800 number and then they in turn refered me back to the original 800 number. so if anyone is looking for a lens cap don't waste you're time.. they don't carry them..

70-300 DL Sigma Macro Zoom lens element loosened, and then reset


amaizin, That's not really normal, because you might only normally hear a tiny noise if you shake a lens not mounted on the camera, but not loose glass sound, everything is fixed and solidly set for alignment when focusing if any element is loose it could never be able to get a clear focus and the element would be so scratched there would be all kinds of distortions even if it went "back into" place. You'll hear loose glass after you drop a lens on to the sidewalk or hard surface and an element is dislodged. Inspect the lens body for an impact mark a lightened portion in a ring shape where the metal or plastic has been stressed or the telltale signs of an abrasion from something like a hard rough surface such as concrete (a little group of pin **** on a corner). The lens should be inspected by a reputable shop to determine if it needs to be repaired or replaced. I take it that you were selling it to upgrade to another lens or other equipment. randy320sgi

How to get the lens apart to clear bits on the front element


The front element is easy to remove.
There's a plastic cover on the front of the lens which has a very small hole in it.
Get something like a very small screwdriver in that hole and prize the cover off.
Remove the 3 screws in the next plastic cover and remove it.
The next 3 screws you see hold the front lens element on.
This whole part rotates to adjust the infinity focus and is kept in position by those 3 screws.
Make sure you mark the position by maybe making a small scratch in the plastic next to one of the screws.
Or maybe scratch around one of the screws.
With those 3 screws removed the front element with the lens just falls out.

Fuji A310 - Out of focus


hello. i think that pictures are blurry. Is it true ?, if so please check the front lens element. I suppose that you clean it regularly with cotton or any soft clothe. Actually all the lens elements are hi-brid when you clean the element with clothe so many times, there will be scratches on the element. that's why i think you get the blurry picture. Just check out the lens and if so you have to change the element or lens assy. so go to fuji shop. good luck..
