Hi, I have just bought the Fuji JX530. When I take a picture I get a split second clicking sound coming from the lens before the flash goes and the picture is taken. The picture is fine and the mechanism moves smoothly when turned on/off and zoomed in/out. Is this just the normal operating sound of the lens or something else ??
When you press the button, the camera performs many functions in a split second such as set the focus, set the aperture and shutter speed, calculate the flash power, etc. It will make sounds and if the pictures are fine, then all is well. ... Digital Cameras

I have a canon EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens that has a zoom lock switch. When in the unlocked position and I try to zoom the lens it sticks at around the 200mm mark and cannot seem to move it below that positon, I need to wiggle the barrel before the zoom seems to "let go" and the lens goes to other positions. This is quite a problem as the lens cannot be operated in all its positions. Also when trying to get it unstuck, it feels like I am applying too much force and could further damage

The optical zoom has stopped working on my Panasonic DMC-FZ8. It was working fine, but now moving the zoom control clock/anticlockwise does not move the lens at all. I've tried the "conversion" settings, and also done a complete reset of all settings via the menu, but it hasn't made any difference. All other functions are operating correctly.

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly
