I have a Canon EOS 1000D, and I've had it for almost 4 years. Recently i started having problems with both my lenses. Autofocus works but through the everything appears blurry when "focuses" and thus I can't use manual focus anymore. In conclusion, everything appears blurry through the eyepiece but the lenses obviously work as the pictures come out perfectly clear when using autofocus. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). I can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

Bought a 3.5 macro lens.the focus ring does not work manually.This is the second such lens I have gotten(sent the first one back because of same problem).This is not corect is it?It works fine on auto focus however I should be able to focus it by hand if I want shoot different distances correct? By the way the camera is an Evolt 500

Purchased my S5 IS second hand (buyer beware!) and everything seems to work perfectly except the viewfinder is blurry. I can just make out the wording of the info around the edges but end up reverting to using the LCD screen instead to view .

I bought a 4 GB Kodak card for my Kodak digital camera to replace the 560 MB card that it currently has. When inserted, the camera tells me it needs formating. I press OK and then it gives me the message that everything on the card will be lost. I press OK and 2 seconds later it starts all over again saying the card needs to be formated. I never seems to actually format the card it just repeats over and over. The new card slider doesn't work -- it's in the up position -- that's the same as the o

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5D which I really like. I take a lot of pictures outside with my job. I have a telephoto lens and a regular lense as well. I switch lenses a good bit depending on the shot. Everything was working well until I now get a message that reads "no lens attached" when there is a lense on the camera. The weird thing is that I only get this message on my regular lense and my telephoto lens works fine. I even carried my camera by a local Minolta/Konic dealer and they were baff

I have a Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 Macro lens working on a Nokon D40X and Nikon D300. For medium to long distances the autofocus does not seem to work with this lens. I think it used to but now I notice that from about 40 feet away the autofocus does not work. The same happens with both cameras. Other lenses work fine so I don't think it is the camera. Is there any history of problems or is it a feature of the lens? thanks, Richard Brand

I have a Nikon D60 and my autofocus has stopped working. It is not because of the lense because i have tried other lenses and the auto focus won't work with them either so it must be an issue with the body.


You should check custom menu setting 2, and make sure it's set to one of the auto modes. Make sure the lenses you are using are AF-S and not regular AF lenses. The D60 has no autofocus motor, so autofocus only works with AF-S lenses. \015\012 ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

My Kodak Z1012 is camera doesn't work. I sent it to Kodak because it had a 1 year warranty. They mailed it back and said everything was fine but it still didn't work. I researched and many people said that it was the battery and that I needed to use a specific kind of Ion battery. I bought a Kodak KLIC 8000 rechargable battery and it still doesn't work. My year warranty has passed and now I am stuck with this camera that doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I have been told by the camera shop that this cannot be repaired. I looks only to be a simple repair to me by replacing the mount which it only screwed onto the lense. What is your thought on this?
