Question about Nikon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I put on a telephoto lens on my camera and on the display the white parts flash black and white. I switched it back to the lens that came with the camera and now it's doing it with that too. How do I fix it?

You're looking at the blown-out highlights. These are areas where you've lost all detail. Press up/down on the multiselector to change the view. Better yet, reduce the exposure to reduce/eliminate them.

Black at the bottom of the pictures


Possible causes :
1. dirt or dust in camera or lens
2. dirt on sensor
3. sensor is cracked
If you are using the built-in flash and a telephoto lens, the end of the lens can block some of the light from the flash and that appears as a slightly rounded black "hump" at the bottom of your picture.

Hi,
Sorry to hear about your lens. If you are able to take pictures with a telephoto and any other AF-S lens, then it means that your problem lies with the standard lens. With standard, I assume you mean the kit lens. If you can take picture in manual mode, but not in autofocus mode, then the AF motor in the lens in not functioning, I had the same thing happen to my 50mm 1.4 lens. The kit lens is under 5 years warranty in the US, provided you are the original purchaser/owner of the camera kit.
Depending on your location, there are Nikon repair centers in Melville, NY and Torrance, CA.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

If you set the camera to P (program) the flash will not pop up automatically but the camera will still control the shutter speed and aperature settings automatically. Also with the lens you are using you should probably have a tripod which will help you hold the camera more steady.

Adding a telephoto lens


Try zooming in. That usually gets rid of the "vignetting" you are experinecing.

Panasonic lumix dmc-fx01 won't focus


See the post for the same camera: "Buttons stopped working": there is a small 2 position switch connected to the zoom button. In my camera the zoom switch was stuck in one of the extreme positions. You have to put it back in the middle an re-assemble.

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Telephoto lens for digital camera


It will not work because it is the wrong thread size. Here is info on the Olympus TCON-17 lens for the 5050: TCON-17 (1.7X) Telephoto Conversion Lens Extend the capabilities of your digital camera with the TCON-17 Telephoto Converter lens. This telephoto lens will increase the magnification of your subject by 1.7x when your camera lens is set to the telephoto position. This will help you bring in the subject when you can't get closer, for example, shooting sports or concerts. Please see below for additional items required to attach this lens to your camera. The following models require the CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring: C-2000/2020/2040/3000/3020/3030/3040/4000/4040/5050 Zoom ....... The video lens is too small (diameter). If you found one with a 43mm thread and put it on the 5050, you would experience severe vignetting (clipping of the corners of the photo).
