Having problems with your Kodak DC290 Zoom Digital Camera ?

Wide-Angle Lense Fuzziness

\015 This is probably not an issue solely about this Kodak model, however, I'm just trying to get some clarification.\015\012\015\012A 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.\015\012\015\012However, I noticed that with most wide-angle shots, about 1/3 of the outer circle is fuzzy.\015\012\015\012Is this an issue with wide-angle lenses, types of wide-angle lenses, or "user-error."\015\012\015\012I appreciate any education received.\015

Answers :

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.\015\012\015\012The telephoto in that kit was actually pretty reasonable though.

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 angle photos, but is this one capable of doing so?? Thanks for your answer...sorry if I seem so ignorant....I'm new at this. Thanks again!


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 lik ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

SSWF Light Hi, I've had my evolt 300 for a little over 3 years and it had been working fine. I charged battery up and went to turn on the camera and there is nothing-it won't come on and (sometimes) the blue sswf light stays on? I just bought a new wide angle lense and it won't come on when I'm using the new lense either. Thanks!

Focus problem My grandson just received a new Nikon camera for Christmas. He assembled the wide angle lens prior to doing any other set up. Now he can't focus it without the wide angle lens in place. The camera has auto-focus. Can you advise a fix? We tried the Reset button on the side ,but this didn't fix it. Thanks

Wide problem The moment the 3200 is switched on the wide angle indicator shows and the lens goes into wide and then tele. After this you cant click. Occassionally, on switching up the wide does not happen and shots can be taken and wide switch works. Switch it off and on again and the same problem happens. As long as the camera is on and the wide does not come up everything is fine.

I have a A640 powershot approx two years and has had little use over this period. I took it to a family event recently and took approx 100 photograghs before my lense became stuck. This happened as I was zooming in on one last family shot. I took a closer look at the lense it appears that the first one is sitting at an angle which suggests to me that someing has broken or has slipped out of line to cause it to jam. The camera turns itsel*** after sensing this fault.

No focus It does not get focused on object. Looks like there is something on lenses inside the camera because when I do wide zoom directed on white paper there are few gray dots visible on the picture. I tried to open it but did not get to the lenses. Is it posible to open it with some instruction from you. Minolta does not support digital cameras anymore and there is not local repair stores. I like it but can not use. Thank you in advance

Focus Problem I recently took the camera apart to fix the zoom. lens would not come out. Fixed it all good now goes in and out smothly. Now the pics are fuzzy out of focus. has auto focus 2' too infinity. Wiped the lenses off while i was in there with a lens cloth from binoculars. Maybe not well enough and it might have a film on it. Would that make the pics fuzzy or out of focus? Or is there something else?


A small amount of dirt on the lens would just produce some flare and redule overall contrast slightly. It wouldn't produce a grossly out of focus image. Either you misaligned something or you messed up the autofocus system somehow.\015\012\015\012Can ... Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital Camera
