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.

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.

Looking for a lense support for a quantaray 75-200 mm lense


what do you mean, lens support? - a 75-200 is not usually long enough to warrant this, if you mean a support bracket to mount the lens to a tripod, instead of a camera mounting point?

btw - sigma made all or most of the lenses for quantaray, so you might try looking this one up that way as well.

Lense taken apart, not sure how to reassemble


Sorry cannot help you. If it has more than 3 elements no one except an optical technician can reassemble the elements. Call Meade customer service. They may take it back knowing what happened????

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.

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.
