Question about Kodak DC290 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Wide-Angle Lense Fuzziness

This is probably not an issue solely about this Kodak model, however, I'm just trying to get some clarification. A year ago, I obtained a lense kit for my Kodak DC290. I'm especially attached to the wide-angle lense, as it allows me to create some nice effects; people, environments, landscapes, etc. However, I noticed that with most wide-angle shots, about 1/3 of the outer circle is fuzzy. Is this an issue with wide-angle lenses, types of wide-angle lenses, or "user-error." I appreciate any education received.

Re: Wide-Angle Lense Fuzziness

That's completely normal for those cheap wide angle add on lenses. There good for a little fun but nothing serious. I bought the lens kit for the Kodak DC3400, probably the exact same lens. The telephoto in that kit was actually pretty reasonable though.

Coolpix 3200. when i turn camera on, the lense


Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

ERROR DE CAMARA NUM.45


This is a lense error.
Unfortunantly. KODAK doesn't repair this model due to shortage of spare parts on a world wide plan.
KODAK offeres instead a trade up, where you will have the option to trade your existing camera to a new camera 25-30% cheaper than market 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.

Kodak EasyShare M753 bent lense


Most of the time, if you can get a sharp knife to SLIGHTLY dig into the part of the tube that is bent, you can CAREFULLY wedge the tube back out. (With the camera OFF) then when you turn it back on, the camera will reset the lens and all will be ok. I've done this with three cameras so far.... ALL involving 13-year-olds dropping them!!! What is it with 13? Unfortunately, MY 13 year-old, smacked the 2.5 inch screen, and the crystal broke... Other than a $50 part on e-bay, I'm having trouble finding a REASONABLE priced replacemement...
Sigh....

Spots inside lense


Your lens needs to be disassembled, cleaned and re-assembled. It should only be done by a certified camera repair shop. It isn't something that you should try to do yourself. It will not be very expensive to have this done, probably in the neighborhood of $50.00.

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.
