Question about Samsung Digimax V5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera doesn’t start

Sometimes, the camera doesn’t start. More exactly, after I press the Power button, the lens is not moving; the lens cover is not opened. Only the AF led is on, this mean that the camera is also on, but the LCD is off. The battery is ok. From this point, I cannot shut down and also I cannot start the camera. Only the AF (auto-focus) led is on.

Re: camera doesn’t start

The only solution that I found is to take off the battery from camera. After I reconnect the battery, the camera starts without any problem (lens are moving, LCD is on, AF is also on). The battery status is full.

Why when you turn the camera appears focus error


Although the manual does not have indicate a focus error, I assume you notice the camera can't focus correct.
I hope you know the camera has a focus selector, see the picture. (in the manual, page 10. For auto focus you should select C-AF (continues) or S-AF (single). If it is in manual, toy should focus yourself using the focus ring on the lens (closest to the camera)
Then to help the focus system, there is a external AF sensor. If it is dirty, then it is difficult for the camera to focus correct in a short time.
Also be aware the camera likes to have extra contrast on the focus distance and no objects in front of the subject you want to pictures, with lots of contrast.

Sometimes point to a object with a sharp contrast, on the same distance, press the shutter release button half, then reframe your picture and only then press the button complete.
when you want to shoot fast moving objects choose C-AF.

I hope this helps.

My nikon d70 wont focus at all


  • Make sure both lens and body are set for autofocus. There are two switches near each other with "AF" and "M" settings.
  • Check the camera's focusing settings, or do a factory reset (from menu) to 'start over'. Usually helps to have AF-Assist on.
  • Try setting the AE/AF-lock button (upper rear, near right thumb when holding camera) to turn on AF. The camera may respond better to this than half-pressing the shutter release.
  • Make sure the lens is fully attached to the camera. You shouldn't be able to rotate the lens without depressing the lens release button, and you should be able see a tight seal between the two.

Hi taylorrm, I don't know if you have a solution to this but sometimes the AE-L/AF-L but gets pushed which is the auto focus lock button then the shutter release button cannot be used to focus and yu have to reset by pressing it again.  Even though it's confusing at first it's a feature along with the AE/AF Lock to try out to lock your focal area on a subject prior to shooting.
To sbhoward5, check to make sure the switch on the camera body is switched to AF instead of M mode(looking at the front it's on the lower right hand side below the lens release button), which sometimes happens when changing the lens - so then the mode selected is in P,S,A, or M modes on the mode dial. happy shooting,

Auto focus mode


One Shot AF will focus on something and stop the AF process. One Shot AF will not fire the shutter until the lens is in focus with something. This AF mode is available in some PIC modes, like Macro mode, I think. AI Servo AF will not lock the focus, and if the subject or the camera moves, the camera will continue to seek a sharp focus. Servo AF will allow the shutter to fire whether in focus on not. This is mode only available in the Sports PIC mode. AI Focus starts out in One Shot AF, but if it detects subject movement it switches to AI Servo. It does not switch back to One Shot unless you release the shutter button and start over. This mode is available in P, Tv, Av, M and probably some PIC modes. The DRebel defaults to the AI Focus in most modes but switches very easily into Servo. Much easier than any other EOS camera I've used. In fact, too easily for most people. For example if the camera locks focus and you them move the focus manually (only on lenses with FTM), or sometimes if you zoom, or even pan the camera; all of these can force the camera to switch to Servo when you don't really want it to. The Wasia (Russian) firmware hack can force the camera to stay in One Shot, but it can't force the camera to start out in Servo.

Power problem with 450


The LCD goes dark after the camera has been inactive for a time, to save battery. When that happens, you can easily restore the LCD display by half-pressing the shutter. If you want to, you can turn this off by selecting menu-setup-SleepTimeout and turn it off. (I don't recommend it, though, as the LCD always on will drain your battery).

Cannot focus on a particular subject


If the camera is having a difficult time auto-focusing, you can try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on another subject roughly the same distance from you and then move the camera back to the intended subject and take the picture without losing focus. First, turn the camera on and locate the Autofocus Target Mark in the center of the LCD. The AF Target Mark resembles an open and close bracket [ ]. Position this AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away as the subject the camera is having trouble focusing on. Press the shutter button halfway enabling the lens to focus. While holding the shutter button halfway down, aim the camera at the original subject and press the shutter button all the way down.
