I've since found out (via a Fuji forum) that the camera MUST be set to Super Forced Macro for the lens to focus ..... which it now does!

Fuji S7000-dropped. lens at weird angle and will not retract. Sent it to Fuji and they said they had no parts for it and sent it back. I don't think they even opened it up as their phone rep tried so hard...


They were correct when they said they have no parts for it. First of all, the camera is a 7-year old model. The camera is manufactured in Japan mostly by robotic machines. The local Fuji distributor never had spare parts for it. There was no need for them to take it apart. Dropping it caused the lens to bend to an angle and stop working. You can't pound it out like an automobile fender, it must be replaced and with no parts available, they had no choice but to recommend a new camera. Consider buying a new camera. And learn from your mistakes (as we all should) and always use the camera strap.

Fuji finepix s1500 - difficult to get it to focus at close macro. I found that I have to have the lens at its widest angle for the camera to focus on a close subject - like at 2 cm like the manual says. If...


Yes. You won't have the same macro focussing ability at all focal lengths.

But usually the important thing is that it's not how close the camera can focus, but how large the image is, so you'll often find that a longer focal length (i.e. not wide angle) will produce a larger image of the object even though the camera has to further away to achieve focus. This also results in less distortion as extreme close-ups in wide angle produce extreme perspective distortion. It's why a wide angle close up of a face results in an exaggerated nose and mouth.

Need Original Lens


Hi

I am sorry to say thatbthis is not possible. The s7000 is not an interchangeable lens SLR. Lokks like one I know but the lens is fixed.

Only chance is to get the current lens repaired.
Hope this helps

Focus error


Very common Fuji lens problems. Find a good independent repair shop that may be able to fix. Fuji will charge a huge sum to replace lens.

I want to add lens to my fujifilm s5600 to take better pics


There are lenses available to add with an adapter ring. I have the wide angle lens (which I LOVE) and a 2x telephoto lens. The wide angle lens allows me to macro from several feet away. It is an amazing lens. The telephoto lens is something you really need to use with a tripod. But yes, there are lenses you can add to your camera.

The lens makes 'graunching' noises at start-up,+ is not focusing


Cameras can be like cars. Better to keep trading them in for the newer model before they are worthless. Yes, that is the broken gears you are hearing. It may be fixable, but probably not worth the 2 hours of labor from a professional to fix it. It could just be a grain of sand in the gearbox if you are willing to spend the time to go look.

Conversion lenses & filters


These screw on the front of the plastic lens adapter and adjust the focal length. On the side of the adapter lenses it will quote the ratio. My wide angle says 0.66x so just multiply the range of focal lengths by this figure and you will see that it adjusts the camera zoom accordingly - making the image wider and probably also increasing the depth of field (what is in focus). Similarly a 1.5 tele will inrease the range of focal lengths to make the lens "longer" eg higher magnification , useful for astro photography - shots of the moon and terrestrial long distance work but detracting from the depth of field, eg the range of distance over which objects are in focus will be reduced.

The wide angle will allow you to come in close and get WIDE objects fully in-frame- hence "wide angle", while the telephoto will give you better overall maginification of the image but will probably increase the MINIMUM focal length - eg you may not be able to focus on objects closer than >2m (instead of ~1).

The screw-on adapter lenses I found were cheap in a Jessops sale use a 52mm thread, while the S5500 provides a 55mm internal thread. I use an appropriate 55mm to 52mm step down ring adapter. There is slight vignetting (shading around the edge of an image) at certain combinations of zoom, but generally these are very useful accessories.

As these are adapter lenses on the front of an already powerful 10x zoom that must be optically compromised at the price of this camera, there maybe some colour fringeing around bright images. If you want a better solution you really need to get a DSLR. Overall a good solution for the price.

Need to find lense


I think the most prudent solution is to give up on the idea. What do you need that for? This lens already has a huge range of 28 .. 300 mm in film equivalents, and it is marginally useful at 300 mm. Whatever else you put on it will make it worse (less light, poor focus and aberrations). Similarly, at the wide end, while it is technically possible to add a wide-angle element to shorten the focal distance to about 20 mm, that will also result in a loss of light and poor peripheral focus, so you will be much better off taking 2-3 pictures and blending them whenever you need a wider angle. This lens is a miracle of optimization -- it already has the attachments you are contemplating, plus macro and super-macro. I don't think its range can be expanded any further without an unacceptable degradation of quality.

Lens will not extend


normaly S7000 have a manufacturing designing defect of lense not extending. This happens due to broken gears in the lense movement assambly. The replacement of the broken gears will fix the problem

Wide Angle Lenses


wide angle lens aka fish-eye lens, means only the centre of your photo is clearly focused - especially in long distance scenery shots.
