Hello till1118,\015\012I would suggest picking up a copy of Shutterbug magazine. This lists new and used lenses for many styles of cameras and you might be able to find a mail-order bargain. A website I use many times for photo purchases is www.KEH.com or www.eBay.com. You'll find other lenses out there from secondary manufacturers for half the price. Good luck.

Telephoto lens I have added a telephoto lens to my pro 1. I have 2 lens adaptor tubes and a merkury 2x 58 mm lens. When I try to photograph at any distance the object is blurry, out of focus.I have tried only using optical zoom and it still won't focus properly.Every other aspect of the camera is great.Macro works great with the merkury wide angle macro lens & adaptor, it's just the tele lens. HELP, I can't get as close to the deer as I would like without the tele lens.

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


The factory presets would not have been affected by your grandson doing as you describe. Depending on what other lenses he might be trying to use, many have a separate switch located on the barrel of the lens to turn auto focus on or off. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Hello I just purchased a .42 wide angle fisheye lens for my panasonic lumix dmc-fz8 and when i bought it on ebay it said its for either a fz7/8. When i tried to attach it today the lens adapter does not fit the thread. I was wondering if maybe the lens on the camera should be taken off? I'm not sure. And it is possible to just use the fisheye lens without the adapter? Because it fits when just put the fisheye lens but when i turn it on it says "please remove lens cap then press play" so I'm very

I am having trouble photographing birds. Do I use the telephoto lens or the wide angle lens? I also have a macro lens for my Canon EOS 400D SLR Also what settings do I take them at. I have a tripod but the birds are too quick so they have to be for hand held. I am finding that when taking them with the telephoto lens they are not sharp and the background is blurred and not good. Thank you Val


Use the telephoto lens.. wide angle will tend to distort the image and provide too much detail( distraction) around the object of interest. Bird pictures become more interesting when they are mainly of the bird. So when you look through the lens, zoo ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

My D80 was purchased in April 2008 along with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom lens. The camera and lens worked flawlesly until this past week end. The cameral stopped focusing in auto mode with no warning. I did hear a whining noise when I tried a Tamron 11-18mm wide angle lens. The auto focus did not work with that lens either.

Hp945lens When I fix a wide angle lens to my camera and switch it on, the zoom tries to come out, fails and then turns the camera off. I'm assuming that because the screw-on lens is on the outer fixed lens this is stopping the zoom from coming out which then turns the camera off. What am I doing wrong?


Hi Do you use a lens tube? You need one of these so the lens does not hit the screw on lens when it extends. Quite cheap on ebay etc. Standard 55mm thread.Hope this helpsjbrevealsall ... HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

I bought a nikon n55 camera body from ebay..not realizing it was just the body, of course! I then purchased a digital .45x wide angle lens with macro hd. But I still don't have all the parts I need, and I'm in desperate need of help to find out what more I have to buy to complete my camera.


If you have the N55 body, then all you need are at least one lens (almost any lens with a Nikon mount built in the last half-century will fit on it, except for the newer DX lenses which will cause vignetting), film (35mm), and batteries (two type CR2 ... Digital Cameras

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

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.

Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think). Image on the display screen is blurry. it WILL take a very blurry picture. there is a faint 'ratcheting" sound when the lens is fully extended. is there a way to 're-set" or calibrate the lens extension setting or focus? thanks very much for your assistance.

62 size I am assuming that the 62 size will be perfect and it will leave the lens as close to the filter as possible? Is this what I should be shooting for? What if I want to add a macro or a wide-angle lens? Would I need any more adapters to attach another lens, or does it dpend on the lens?


If you want to add other lenses, either macro, wide angle, telephoto or just filters, they go directly on the adapter. That's why the thread size (62mm) is important because that's the best fit for that adapter. If you get other sizes you can still u ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL

My Olympus c-730 just fell on the floor while it was on and landed on the lens. The glass lens and 2 plastic pieces came out and the lens housing is now crooked. It won't retract in or out. I tried straightening it but it just makes lots of noises. Does anyone know the sequence of getting the lenses back in place? I can't find an exploded view anywhere.
