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.

Re: s5100 zoom out of focus

TRY SETTING CAMERA TO DO CENTRE FOCUSING - CHECK USER
MANUAL.FOCUS MAY BE MISSING YOUR SUBJECT.
IF ALL PICTURE IS BLURRED USE TRIPOD. IF THIS CURES IT
THEN IT IS CAMERA SHAKE.

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.

Camera won't focus when using optical zoom


I had same problem. Found that doing a complete reset fixed it. Go into setup and at end there is a factory reset. If not working after that would suspect your ccd sensor is on way out. They should last 5-7 yrs. Be cheaper to get another cam with way prices have come down

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.

Fuji Film Question


The easiest way to tell if camera shake is the problem is to use a tripod - generally not necessary on a bright day, at least with my camera (also a 10x zoom). If a tripod doesn't give you clearer pictures then camera shake is most likely not the problem; if it is, either use a tripod for your big zoom shoots or get used to bracing the camera, either just with your hands held out from your body or against a wall / post / anything handy. Good luck!
