F717, protector and lens cap (question)

I attached the original Sony protection filter to the lens. But the lens cap does not seem to be tight on it now. Is it OK? Do you have the same effect? Thanks

Had the same problem with my polarizing filter. The Sony lenscap was not a snug fit onto the polarizer. Solved the problem by purchasing a cheap third party 58mm lenscap at a retail photography shop. Cost under $5.00.

I have just purchased polaroid lense filters polaroid say they are compatible with Nikon d90 but I cant get them on do I need something else to attach them

Filters must be the right size for each lens. For example the 18-105mm kit lens that comes with most D-90 kits uses a 67mm filter. They thread into the main lens. It is always safer to put a clear or UV filter on your camera lens to protect the expensive lens glass. You can thread another type of lens onto it as easily as you can your base lens. Be sure and do not force a threaded lens filter onto your lens or you will damage the expensive lens. It should thread on easily and do not over tighten it.

My Sony DSC-F717 has mold inside of the lens. How may I disassemble the lens to clean the optics inside?

This is a relatively common job for cameras with removable lenses, but even then, best left to those with expert experience because of the precision required for reassembly. It is considerably more complicated for cameras that do not have removable lenses.
You might try camera stores in your area, but you best bet would be Sony service:

There is nothing visible though the lens, even though it seems as though everything is working and nothing happens on the screen - no picture

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F717 5.0 Megapixel

Hi Bella

That code means that the lens unit was unable to move from home position to switch on position.

These lens are extremely complex and I doubt if you could find someone able to repair the lens.

Therefore I suggest contacting Sony to find a accredited dealer to quote you on replacement of the lens.

My guess is it will cost half of what you originally paid for the camera.

Good luck.

Types of filter lenses to use with DSC-F505 camera

I bought a Hama skylight filter for the express purpose of protecting the lens. I've not noticed any degradation in image quality. Of course, ultimately the filter will block some of the light that's hitting the CCD, but it's so little as to not be noticeable. Being as the lens cap clips into the thread of the lens then yes, it does still fit perfectly into the thread of the filter, so no problem there!
