Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

S5100 zoom out of focus

I am a complete nut about clown loaches which i own. I can compinsate for being underwater and lighting conditions. I know how to edit photos also. My S5100 is really bad at zoom. I cannot see anything at all with any clarity when zoomed in real close to something stationary. I know the troubles with catching fish still lol I wasnt sure if i bought a bad camera or its broken. Do i need to use my product service plan from best buy? can these cameras show detail at max zoom of close objects. 3 feet or so. even up right against the tank it is still out of focus when i try to zoom in at all. I see the wonderful pictures others take and i cant believe they are using my camera to do it with. Mine simply wont do that. I wasnt sure if i bought a bad camera or its broken.

There are two ports on the brake master cylinder where brake lines connect...referencing the picture in the link below, which one is *primary*, and which one is...

Why would you need to ask this?
The lines will only thread into the correct port, they did that to keep fools from screwing this up.
You are a clown.
I gave up on this place. too many clowns like you.
And you come along and slam me. And you have no clue. That really pissed me off.
The sad part is I know you are a clown.... too bad nobody else knows.

My Fuji S5100 now fails to properly focus. I have

1 ensure that your camera is not set in Macro mode test by taking a picture of a subject very close up ie. 10 - 15 cm if the image is in focus then you may be set in macro mode.
2 if lens is removeable ensure it is fitted properly. remove the lens and refit ensureing the connectors are clean.
3 ensure the switch on the lens or camera is set to AF for auto focus.
4 suspect autofocus sensor is defective if you try to focus on subjects which are close and far away and you do not hear to camera re-setting the focus then it is in manual focus or the focus sensor may be defective or in need of adjustment.

5 recommend specialist have a look at this problem.

Wont zoom in or out message reads turn the power off and on again can access stored pics but wont take new ones sony cybershot dsc w35

Is this camera only have a digital zoom? If it has an optical zoom as well, you could have a setting that is set to ignore digital zoom and because your lighting conditions, zooming in and out is not currently possible because the aperture can not be opened enough to light you take a picture without being blurry. The auto focus would be taking priority in stopping you from taking a picture.
Just a hunch.

Zoom Error

this usually happens when you turn on the camera with the lense cover still on. just turn it off and remove the lense cover and turn it back on again. hope this helps.
