Question about Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Viewfinder problems When looking through viewfinder, instead of looking at subject, all one can see are moving pyschedelic colors. If I were back in the 60's this wouldn't have been a problem :) Kookaburra

Quite likely this is a manufacturer error which Nikon will fix for free. Go to http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html
I just got mine back - took about five weeks because they were out of stock on the CCD (Charged Couple Device) that they had to replace. Don't give up on the camera. It's worth having it repaired since all it will cost you is to send it to them.

What are the differences between viewfinder and rangefinder cameras?


A rangefinder is a camera that has a rangefinder mechanism. This is a device that measures subject distance. Through this device, you see two images. When the two images coincide through moving the dial, the correct distance is displayed. On older cameras, this was a separate device and one must transfer this to the lens.
Now they are built into the viewfinder. You have different viewfinders for different focal lengths (zoom lenses are difficult, as a result).
A viewfinder is what the photographer looks through to compose, and in many cases to focus, the picture. Most viewfinders are separate, and suffer parallax, while the single-lens reflex camera lets the viewfinder use the main optical system.

I want to move my picture to the right. About 1/4 of a person or writing is not viewable on the left side of the picture


If the photo has already been taken, and the area to the left has not been recorded, then there is no way that the missing part of the image can be restored. If, however, you notice the area is not in the viewfinder prior to taking the photograph, the solution is simple - re-frame the image, so that all of the subject appears in the viewfinder. If necessary, step back a pace or two (being mindful of any obstructions or other dangers behind you) until the viewfinder shows all that you wish to record. It is better to leave an area surrounding the subject, which can be removed in pp exercise, than to crop detail at the taking stage.
If the problem occurs when you are printing images, ensure that your image-editing software is set up to display the entire image, and that you are not inadvertently cropping it.

Appears in focus in viewfinder, but isn't


Change your focusing setting to spot focus. Then, focus on your main subject, keep the button half-way pressed while you re-compose the shot and then press it the rest of the way. Does that improve the shot?

What you are seeing is normal behavior for a rangefinder camera. The problem is called parallax error and it occurs with any camera in which the viewfinder is physically offset from the image sensor. As you may have noticed, the problem becomes worse as the camera is brought closer to the subject. You can either learn how to compensate for this, by rotating the camera upward slightly, or by using the LCD display to frame the image when you are closer than approximately 10 feet from the subject. The markings in the viewfinder may help you to judge how much compensation is necessary.

Pictures look further away than they seemed through the viewfinder


Like all point and shoot cameras, PhotoPC's viewfinder is not 100 percent accurate and will slightly magnify the subject. The actual picture will always appear to have been taken further away than what the user views through the viewfinder.

Focus


The camera uses a precise auto focus mechanism, but under the conditions and with the subjects described below the auto focus function may not work well. Subjects moving at high speed Very shiny subjects such as a mirror or car body Extremely low contrast subjects (such as subjects dressed in the same color as the background, etc.) When there are objects in front of or behind the subject (such as an animal in a cage or a person in front of a tree) Subjects with little reflection, such as hair or fur Subjects with no solidity, such as smoke or flames Subjects viewed through glass In addition, the focus is set on the center of the frame, so if the subject is not at the center (when shooting two people standing side by side, for example), the focus is adjusted on the background and the desired subject (the two people) may be out of focus. In such cases, do the following: Point the camera so that one of the persons is at the center of the viewfinder. Half-press the shutter button. (The focus is locked on the person.) Holding the shutter button in the half-pressed position, reposition the camera to achieve the desired composition. Take the photo. If the focus cannot be adjusted, it is locked to infinity (1.5 meters when using the flash).

Focus on a particular subject


Try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on a subject roughly the same distance away from you, then re-compose your picture without losing that focus. Open the lens barrier fully. Look through the viewfinder at the AF Target Mark (the 4 lines in the center of the viewfinder). Position the AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away from you. Press the shutter button halfway until the green lamp lights. While keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, re-compose your picture, then press the shutter fully.
