Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

H1 - is this normal ?

With my H1, when I zoom from the tele end of the zoom back to wide angle , I can feel a slight "clunk" in the camera when the lens stops moving. ( this happens at any spot on the zoom scale ) When I look on the lcd screen, it looks like the lens has a very slight amount of "backlash", or play, because when viewing the screen, I can see it stop and move towards the tele end ( just a very very slight amount). It is fine when moving towards tele end . I was wondering if anybody's H1 has the same "clunk", or play, or is mine defective ??

I haven't ever noticed anything like that with my camera. There is a slight amount of play on my lens though.

What do the letters w and t at top of camera back mean


These mean Wide and Tele, for the zoom. There should be a rocker switch nearby that operates the zoom lens. You don't say what camera it is, so I can't be more specific.

What do you do when lens does not come out all the way?


Lens turns when it comes out. Recharge your lithium ion battery fully first. Turn on the camera. Then zoom to see if the lens moves freely. Fully extended only when it is not in tele mode but in wide angle mode. You need service if the lens does not move out, and camera does not power on.

Someone asked me to take photos with my Nikon D90. I have the 18-105mm lens that I got with it. Is this able to take 'wide angle' photos?? I know there are special lenses made specifically for wide...


The 18-105mm lens at the 18mm end of the zoom range is a pretty fair wide-angle lens. Look through the viewfinder and turn the zoom ring (the big wide ring at the front of the lens) one way and then the other. The 105mm end is the view that looks like you're using binoculars, the 18mm end is the view that looks like you're using binoculars backward.

Most add on lenses are designed to be used at a certain focal length, a zoom should be used (is most effective) when you are completely zoomed out, (really why would you add a zoom lens then not zoom all the way) a wide angle lens should be used with the zoom all the way in (cause your getting the widest angles). As far as quality, you really shouldn't have an issue except you may get black edges depending on how big the end of your lens is. Good luck

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.

Optical zoom


Hey needacamera,
The range of an optical zoom lens refers to how wide angle to telephoto the lens covers. An example of a 6x optical zoom would be an 18mm-108mm lens, which covers wide angle to telephoto. An example of a 3x zoom lens would be an 18mm-54mm lens, which would provide a capability of capturing images from wide angle to normal views. To calculate the x factor of an optical zoom you would divide the largest number by the smallest number on your zoom. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
