Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

It says the lens cap is on and its not

This is a fairly new camera, not the newest made but new to me.
The lens cap is not on and the camera will not let me take pictures. I have no pictures on so I do not know if the other functions work, like playback.

    I have the same problem. It instructs me to remove the lens cover and push the right arrow button. The autofocus seems to engage but never focuses and then it repeats the message. I only had the camera ayear when this started. I presume the autofocus is not working and I will have to send iot in for a non-warranty repair. Flat rate charge of about $160. Seems this should be a factory covered repair even if not in the warranty period. It is a defect.

I Have PENTAX MX, With lens for this camera. Can i buy a new digital PENTAX, that might fit, these same lens?


One of the great things about Pentax's digital cameras is their lens compatibility: You can use any Pentax lens made since 1975. But the functionality varies from the oldest lenses to the newest. This guide shows what features work with each lens series and what to beware of when buying third-party lenses.

Hi, Own an Olympus 35sp camera. Need to buy a 49mm lens hood for same. Live in Ireland. Any suggested outlets. Many thanks.


I am in the US, But I believe the UK based Jessops camera shops should have a 49mm lens hood to fit it. I would just get a collapsible rubber one. They are fairly cheap and just screw in the filter threads. fold them back when not in use, and you can still mount your lens cap.

You might also try Ebay. Shipping from the UK to you should be minimal, but some asian dealers offer very good bargains in those kinds of goods too.

Wide angle cap vs wide angle lens


The cap is a plastic disk, usually black or silver, that snaps on at the end of the lens to keep the lens clean. Some lenses have two caps, one for each end when not attached to the camera.
Some cameras don't use a "loose" cap; those cameras generally retract the lens into the camera body and "close" a door in front of the lens.
Many, if not most, camera users do not use a cap (my guess).

The wide angle lens is generally an "optional" lens that can be used for group or scenery pictures when you want to shoot a "wide" picture. A "normal" lens is generally around 50mm (plus / minus 5mm). A wide lens is anywhere from 17mm to 24mm (or so).

I recommend obtaining a wide lens... with a cap.

Hope this helps!

The lens/zoom has tendency to stick. Try newest batteries and try several times to turn on and off. If all else fails, Kodak will fix it for $50

Lens problem


That's a fairly new camera, and is likely still under warranty. Contact Canon first to see if they'll help 1-800-828-4040 or 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666).

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, or Canon will not help, they're worth a try:
