Hi..... Years ago I purchased a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 zoom lens with macro to fit my Konica SLRs. I also aquired a similar lense to fit my Minolta 101b. I have recently bought a Sony A100 digital SLR and would like to know if there are any converter rings available to use my old lenses on the new camera. I just love the one-stop zoom and focus operation. Any help appreciated Grayham

I've got a Fiji S1000 finepix, the camera keeps sending me a 'focus error' or zoom error' that does not permit me too zoon in or out, it also does not permit me to take any shots. When i got it yesterday, The zoom worked, my guess is that a gear inside the mechanisms either broke or are stuck. When I turn the seletor knob, i hear some motor trying to work. What can I do to solve this on my own?

I have a new Olympus E-510 cmera and I don't find much in the usr's manual aout shooting closeups. How do you do this? Also, when I turn the manual focusing ring I don't accomplish anything in doing this. How do you do this?
Try setting your camera to macro mode (setting with the FLOWER) for close up photography, or portrait mode (setting with the PERSON).If you have the manual then try looking up, Single Focus, Continuous Focus, and Single Focus Manual. You' ... Olympus Evolt E510 Digital Camera
Hi, I've a Sigma 28-105mm aspherical 3.5-5.6 lens. Auto focus does not engage. I can hear the motor trying, but the ring does not turn. When I switch to manual focus, I can turn the ring to focus manually, but I still hear the motor trying to use autofocus. Additionally, sometimes the shutter will not fire in manual focus while the motor is still searching. I've cleaned the contacts, but no joy. I suspect a faulty switch, but that doesn't completely explain the autofocus not engaging. I am
Well, I think you have at least one problem pinpointed, in that I suspect the focusing ring is jammed, and cannot rotate with the electromagnet signals. The other problem might be a faulty auto/manual switch. Of course, check for oxidation and e ... Digital Cameras
Fokusing .. I have repaired my stucked lenses but along the way, made another problem. I've broken a little flat 6-wire cable that goes into the lenses. Managed to repaire that also, but now I haven't managed to have a bright focused picture in zero fokus position. Is it called bad back fokus? So , i have been told. If a fokus picture just a little bit, everything is fine. Now I am looking for service manual with zoom/lenses assembly instructions. I have an idea, what should I do, but I would ra
Service Manual maybe is not the best solution, because in this manual there is no info for repairing the optical unit. Replacing the lens unit part number: 175892511 is the only solution. Cost for the optical is about 100 Euro (for my account)\015\01 ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera
When the camera is turned on a FOCUS ERROR shows up on the screen and will not disappear. Also the zoom lens is stuck half way out. Is there an easy fix. Regards LORRENZO.
I don't think there is an 'easy' fix for this except to send it in for professional service as the gears are not meshing right inside the camera causing this focus error. ... Digital Cameras
I have an Olympus C-740 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera. I bought a new memory Card. This camera is new to me and this is the first memory card I have purchased. I do not have a manual for the camera. I am having a problem getting the camera to read the card. I insert the card, turn on camera & the window says "no picture". I changed the batteries also. I can get a oval ring which says "Info on the left, picture of cards at the top, "Mode Menu" on right, & bars at the bottom.It appears the "Mode Menu"

I have a Nikon D40, which I recently dropped. :( Camera seemed okay, but then I noticed later that the 18-55 lens was being less than cooperative. It now is stuck on 55 adn will not zoom out. It still focuses (manually & automatically). My other lens, which was not on the camera at the time of the drop, works perfectly fine. Any suggestions on what could be wrong or how to fix it?
It sound like the lens zoom has broken.If other lens is ok and this lens still focuses automatically the conection is working.Sorry to bring the bad news but it may cost less to get a new lens than to get it fixed.Someon ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
Focus There is one problem that I have with this camera - Auto Focus in low lighting and it has really limited manual focus. Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear
I have similar problem. So I use manual focus (1m,3m,inf) & move camera for finest pix. On AF, the adjustment seem to go past sharpest image point but settles on a fuzzier setting. Is there any place that can make a repair? ... Toshiba PDR-M700 Digital Camera
Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar? Which will also result in removal of the macro setting! Any zooming to get closeup blurs out of focus no matter what I do and that's when still within the optical zoom range.

I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue. However now it seems that the aperture is stuck, and not enough light gets through to the viewfinder. How can I fix this?

Wont Focus I dropped the camera from my tall dresser about 5 feet and now it wont focus. It makes a clicking noise when I try to zoom in. Also when I zoom in it gets dark around the coners of the screen. Can we fix this or do we need to take it in and get it repaired.
If its making a noise when you try to zoom in and out I would suspect physical damage. The more you mess with it the greater the chances of damaging it beyond economic repair. I would take it to the local authorized canon repair shop. ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
T7 video A colleague of mine is interested in a new digicam. He likes to take short video sequences and was wondering if the T7 features proper optical zoom with continuous auto-focus, auto-exposure while videoing? I know the first generations of digicams only allowed digital zoom and wouldn't change focus from the point at which one started filming. Also, any general experiences of video on the T7 - how long can one film etc?
Hello\015\012\015\012The zoom does not work on the T7 while you video, you have to zoom first and then start to video, then it is fixed at that zoom setting.\015\012\015\012Other than that, the video is pretty good, I have taken video clips up to abo ... Sony DSC-T7 Digital Camera

Zoom lens mis-focusing. The lens "wizzes" in and out trying to focus. The lens will eventually "settle-into" focus; but sometimes this takes a number of seconds to accomplish. Also, the lens tends to "slip-out" of focus just as the button is depressed to take the photograph. Only problem seems to be with the lens focusing.
This usually happens when you are focusing on a spot which lacks details. Try aiming you focusing area to something which has clear edges ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?
Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
Fuji finepix s1500 - difficult to get it to focus at close macro. I found that I have to have the lens at its widest angle for the camera to focus on a close subject - like at 2 cm like the manual says. If I zoom up just a bit then the focus changes and my close subject is out. Is this the way it is supposed to operate?
Yes. You won't have the same macro focussing ability at all focal lengths. But usually the important thing is that it's not how close the camera can focus, but how large the image is, so you'll often find that a longer focal length (i.e. ... Digital Cameras
