Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

I am going to purchase Nikon D90. Which kind of lens is primarily required for me- one 18-105mm or two lenses consisting of one 18-55mm and another 55-200mm ?


Answers :

That's up to you. All three of them are fine lenses. The 18-105mm covers a useful range by itself and makes for a wonderful "walking about" lens. But it only goes up to 105mm. If you want a longer lens to take pictures of things farther away, it won't do it.\012\012\012

The 18-55mm and 55-200mm together cover a longer range. The downside is that it's two lenses, so it's more you have to carry around and you will lose some time changing between them.

There are other combinations. I personally have the 18-105mm and the 70-300mm, which gives me more reach than the 200mm. Nikon also has an 18-200mm lens, which in one lens covers the range you're considering with two lenses.

As I said first, the decision is yours. Only you know how much range you need for the pictures you want to take, how much weight you're willing to carry, and possibly most important, how much money you're willing to spend.

Lense Issue When I turn on the camera the lense started to move out and then got stuck. How when you turn it on it just trys to adjust the lense but again it is stuck. I am required to remove the batteries to get it to shut off. I was going ot open the case but three of the screws requires a nice special allen wrench, but guess what, they did not provide it. Any ideas where I can score one?

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.

Hello people im trying to get into my daughters DMB fs7. i'v got the sides - the back off - but i'm trying to get to the lense. it wont open or close properly. i want to know why - think it has been dropped by little sister. does the outer face ring 'screw' off? my daughter also has a dmc-fh1 with a broken screen!! are the lenses inter changeable? Can one buy a screen to replace the busted one? I think it is a waste to through these out and buy another!!!! Help? Mark Phelan


Hi Mark....I'll tell you what I've figured out on this type of digital camera, and perhaps it will give you something to go on. First of all, when a digital camera with a zoom lens is dropped with the lens extended, damage to the tiny gears inside ... Digital Cameras

I have a furjifilm finepix z200fd camera. I actually have two of them. I bought one and had it a year and it just stopped turning on one day. I bought another, cuz i liked the camera and just thought it was something we did to break the first one. a few months later the second one just stopped turning on. i think it may be the slider to that you slide to turn it on. Is there any ideas on what to do to fix it?

On my GE E1050TW digital camera, when i start it up, it has a list of options such as '640x480p NTSC 4:3' and '720x576p PAL 16:9'. When i choose one of these options, another screen comes up with three options, 'YCbCr444', 'YCbCr422' and 'RGB444'. The first two are shaded grey and the last one is the only one i can click. when i do, the screen goes blank but the power light stays on. What ever i do, i cannot do anything to make my camera work.
