Broken lens on digital camera?
If it is not a removable lens, trash it and buy a new camera. It will cost more than the price of a decent replacement to fix it. The above refers to actual cracking or scratches on the lens itself. But if you're experiencing problems with the lens barrel extension mechanism (a lens error), then there are some things you can do to correct the problem. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... There are several things that you can do to try to correct it. These home fixes seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors. If the camera is out of warranty, and if professional repair will cost more than the value of the camera, then they're worth a try.

Answer . I recently purchased an Oly E-500. This site has very comprehensive information including a review of the Tcon-17 (the link below). Hope this helps. http://www.wrotniak.net/photo/c5050/wcon-tcon.html
Answer Yes, but who maybe not worth it . With five manual Rokkor lenses, I've been hoping for the same solution... came across this website http://www.rokkorfiles.com/whatsnew.htm and then your question. See two 2006 articles about the use of bayonet mount Rokkor lenses on digital bodies. Don'…t get too excited tho'. After reading reviews, I think I'll just have to cut my losses. Can't bring back the 70s and I ain't gonna get a digital body to go with these lenses without unacceptable (to me) tradeoffs. JM (MORE)
Answer . Yes. There are adapters avalable that let you do this. But, you will have to focus manually.. [Spelvin adds] In addition, because such adapters generally serve as a spacer between the rear of the lens lens and the camera body, you may lose the ability to focus at infinity.
There are two possibilities; The focus - a motor moves the lens elements in conjunction with a sensor to get a sharp image. The zoom - operating the zoom controls, moves an optical group which gives the photographer the desired angle of view.
What is the difference between conventional camera lens and digital lens and can a digital lens be used with a 35mm slr?
The principals are the same. If you use an old lens on a new body or vice versa you will lose the autofocus function. Also many digital cameras have smaller sensors (known as cropped). So a 50mm lens on your SLR will be about a 78mm on your DSLR because the image is being projected onto a smaller sp…ace. This may be a benefit if you use long lenses for sport / wildlife but not if you generally use fish eye! You can now buy full frame DSLRs that are equivalent to 35mm so the lens would not alter. Also lenses are constantly evolving with better glass to prevent chromic abberation, etc and with built in image stabilisation, etc. (MORE)
You bring it to a professional for maintenance. Especially if you are a professional, why would you want to take the chance of ruining the camera or the lens?. depending on what is meant by "inside lens." If you are talking about an interior element it definitely goes to the maker or other pro. if …you mean the rear element of the lens then a blower and a lens cloth can serve (MORE)
No, it's a compact ("bridge") camera that looks much like an SLR. Here are the lens specs:. LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT â¢ 35 - 420 mm equiv. (12x zoom) â¢ F2.8 - F3.7 (minimum aperture F11) â¢ 14 elements in 10 groups (3 aspherical, 1 ED lens) â¢ Non-extending / internal zoom …â¢ Mechanical linked zoom ring â¢ Focus-by-wire focus ring. source : http://www.dpreview.com/news/0609/06091409leicavlux1.asp. say that the Viewfinder is 0.44" EVF (electronic viewfinder) with 230,000 pixels .... i.e. a small lcd type display is placed at the viewfinder. Addendum: A single lens reflex camera has a mirror in a pentaprism that flips upwards, allowing light to enter through a shutter, and into a light-sensitive material such as silver halide film, or electronic charge-coupled device. In any slr or dslr, you can view the scene without turning on the camera. But with a point-and-shoot like the Leica V-Lux 1, it has to be on. (MORE)
In short, yes.. More specifically, as long your zoom lens is an "EF" mount lens, it will work with all Canon Digital-SLR models from the EOS line. You can determine if a lens is an EF mount from the full name of the lens. The full name of the lens is usually written on the outside of the len itself…. (MORE)
Since I use a star filter on mine, I'd have to say that's an emphatic yes. All you need is a filter with the proper ring size, or the proper adapter rings and you can open your digital camera up to a whole new world of capabilities.
It is a lens that mounts on the end of your camera lens. Some are wide angle adaptors (0.75x is an example) and some are multipliers (1.5x or 2x) which move you half the distance to the subject you are shooting.They can be handy adaptors, but can also reduce critical focus in your pictures, or degra…de sharp focus.There are also lens adaptors for digital SLR cameras to use lenses from another type of camera.A lens adaptor could also screw onto the end of a lens to allow filters of another size to be mounted in front of the lens.---- Just an added note: Although the principle is the same, not all adapters mount on the end of the camera lens. Some adapters mount to threads on the body which may be hidden by a removable ring. So the camera may not always appear to have threads when it does, if you know where to look. Check the manual.

Depending on your camera, lenses are available or not available.. Nikon, Canon, Olympus etc., all have very good zoom lenses for their cameras. You will also find good lenses from Tamron, Sigma, and Tokina, that would suite your requirement. However, I am assuming that you have an SLR camera...
I have a brand new Sony with a jammed lens and I can get another camera with a broken LCD on eBay for 10. How hard would it be to piece these 2 together into a working camera?
Why don't you send it back to Sony! They should send you another camera because their product was faulty. I would advise you not to take the camera apart.. Unfortunately, you will find that a jammed lens will not fall under warranty repair. But many people have reported success in fixing lens e…rrors without even opening the camera. Please see the Related Link "Fixing a Lens Error on a Digital Camera".. If you don't have any success with the seven listed lens error techniques. You may want to consider swapping the LCD screens like you originally suggested. If you have a little mechanical or electronics background, it's not hard at all. Please see the other below Related Link concerning replacing an LCD screen for many examples. (MORE)
The Canon Rebel film bodies use the EF mount lenses. All modern Canon EOS cameras, including all digital EOS cameras will also accept EF mount lense. The EF and EF-S lenses are compatible with the Rebel series. However, the lenses that typically come with a Rebel (EF-S) are compatible only with Ca…non cameras that have a 1.6 crop factor. Cameras with the 1.3 or no crop feature will not accept the EF-S lenses. The lens mounts deeper than the mirror will tolerate. (MORE)
Digital Cameras mainly take photos, but they can have extra features that enable it to do more, like record Video, take photos when a certain amount of movement is detected. Most Digital Cameras use SD or SDHC cards and can differ in performance, like Mega Pixels how sharp a photo is when taken, Zoo…m how close you can get onto an object, Speed how fast Focusing is in Automatic, Settings what you can Adjust in the Camera to change the brightness, White Balance and looks (Color, B&W).

It is a camera that can record photographs and stores themdigitally. Most use small removable cards to record the photos on.
"Depth of an image" as you call it, is usually referred to as "depth of field". This is purely a function of the physical aperture size used at the moment the picture is taken at a given distance, and is not limited to digital cameras. However, if your question is more about the spatial relationship…s between objects in the scene, this is called "perspective" and is controlled by the distance from the object to the observer. Contrary to what some people believe, focal length does not control or distort perspective (although short focal lengths can introduce linear distortion). (MORE)
18 mm is the wide angle focal length and 200 mm is the telephoto limit of the zoom. for more info searching on focal length and field of view will give you lots of info.
Yes. Contact the warranty or service repair department and they can advise you of where to mail it or take it for repair. But if the cost of repair is more than the value of the camera, you may consider replacing the screen yourself. Replacement LCD screens can be inexpensively harvested from a br…oken camera with other issues (but with a working LCD) acquired from ebay. "How To" examples for do-it-yourself repair of an LCD screen may be reviewed in the below listed "Related Link". (MORE)
Your camera also has another battery that could have gone out. I think its called a lithium battery. It's located inside the camera. You have to unscrew those tiny screws on the sides of the case to get to it. It's better to take it to a camera store and let them do it.
A digital single-lens reflex camera (digital SLR or DSLR) is a digital camera that uses an automatic mirror system and pentaprism or pentamirror to direct light from the lens through the viewfinder eyepiece.. Cheep!. Fixed lens probably means fixed focal length. The lens (camera) cannot change f…ocus. The manufacturer picks a compromise focus position that often gives somewhat focused pictures between maybe 7 feet and infinity.. It's also possible that it is referring to a fixed aperture. That is, it doesn't have a way to change the size of the opening behind the lens to control how much light gets in.. Cheep cameras often don't have either of these features. (MORE)
A digital camera takes photos in a digital format which brings a number of benefits for those wanting to edit images as the image can quickly and easily be transferred onto a computer (normally via USB) and edit with the many free/paid image editing software that are available. Backing up a digital …image is also much easier. (MORE)
It's very rare to find lenses that aren't optical, so I think you've probably talking about optical vs digital zoom, which is common. With optical zoom you move the lenses WRT each other to make the object appear closer or farther away. With digital zoom OTOH you play around with the pixels, the act…ual picture elements instead to make the image bigger or smaller.. Digital zoom is more rugged and cheaper to build, but will eventually result in a loss of resolution. (MORE)
To clean the lens of a digital camera, firstly avoid touching it with your fingers. Carefully blow off any grit and loose dust particles, then lightly wipe the lens with a soft, dry cloth or special lens cleaning paper. If necessary, use a tiny amount of lens cleaning fluid, but only put the fluid …on the lens cleaning paper, not straight onto the lens itself. You can also use a microfibre cleaning cloth, or other soft cotton. Avoid using materials like paper towels, napkins or facial tissues. (MORE)
Be sure that the lock is not engaged. Grasp the lens firmly on a portion that is fixed (does not turn). Grasp the camera in the other had. Firmly twist the lens in the "off" direction (usually counterclockwise) increasing pressure gradually. It may also be possible to loosen the lens by holding a…n air can upside down and squirting the liquid onto the area that seems to be binding the most. If you do this, use only a short squirt, and don't repeat it. The spray will cool the metal and may cause it to contract enough to loosen, but cooling things too much may cause condensation inside the lens. This is the sort of thing techs do but don't tell customers about. If you try the air can DO NOT GET THE LIQUID ON YOUR SKIN OR IN YOUR EYES. It is extremely cold, and will cause frostbite. (MORE)
The lenses are very meticulously assembled with the utmost of precision. Repair of such is best left to those who possess the certifications (experts) for this kind of service. You should not be attempting this repair on your own in your garage bench shop. But if you must try, such as if the repai…r costs exceed the value of the camera, many people have reported success with the simple repair techniques outlined in the below listed "Related Link".

Only with an adaptor, unless it has the proper mounting system. Even it it will fit, it is likely that the auto features will not all work.
It depends on the camera. If it has detachable lenses, there should be a variety of zoom lenses available. Vivitar and Sigma are good manufacturers, and of course your camera manufacturer's offerings are the best choices of all.
ED has nothing to do with the camera mount; it is a lens (glass) quality so yes, it will fit
The long answer depends on what's wrong with the lens, but the short answer is easier. If you are not a trained technician with the proper tools, you don't.. An exception is "lens errors". Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the… camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ....

On SLRs, macro lenses are specially corrected for extreme close-up work. Nikon brand macro lenses bear the name 'Micro', so there is really not much difference.
The Lens is what focuses light so that it can be seen as a picture, without the lens the image would be just light with faint shadows
Which is better a 8point1 megapixel sony digital camera with a carl zeiss lens Or b 10 megapixel Samsung digital camera with a Samsung lens?
I would go with the 10 mp Samsug, because it's better quality. However I have a camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and it's very good. Bottom line they're both great quality but I would go with the second one.
Sigma builds lenses with mounts to fit Sigma and other cameras. I own two which are made to fit a Canon body. These would not work on a Sigma camera as they are, but I'm sure the lenses are also available with a Sigma compatible mount. This involves the type of locking ring as well as the location a…nd number of electrical contacts for the motor. So when buying a lens, make sure it has the mounting configuration for the camera you own. The specs should say "for Sigma" or "Sigma mount", etc. I have tele-converters made by both Canon and Sigma. The mounts look the same, but if I recall correctly I can't use my Sigma converters with certain Canon lenses. In some cases, the equipment may fit, but the combination is not guaranteed to auto-focus. Or the focal length of the lens plus converter may be mis-reported in the EXIF information. Check compatibility tables. Without a converter you shouldn't run into many problems. But before investing a lot of money, It helps to locate a shop that carries the lens in question and try it on your camera. (MORE)
You would have to use a Minolta SLR digital camera with a Minolta lens. However, don't automatically assume an old Minolta lens will work on a digital camera. You need to determine whether the digital camera accepts interchangeable lenses and whether it accepts the specific Minolta SLR lens and moun…t you have. There is no real generic answer to this question. (MORE)
Most do. This is what typically happens. Light passes through the lens, reflects on a mirror that will flip up when the shutter is pressed (revealing the sensor), passes through the auto-focus screen, then bounces on multiple mirrors (behind the pop-up flash) called a pentaprism, where it finally en…ters the viewfinder. More recently however, Sony's new a33 and a55, use a translucent mirror and and use an electronic viewfinder, while still being classified as DSLR because of its moving shutter. (MORE)
The Canon AE1 lens will not fit a Canon digital. You can buy an adapter that will allow the lens to work in manual focus mode on the digital camera.
Yes, if your camera has the detachable lens option (lens' are able to be removed from the base of the camera). All brands that are the same as your camera will fit.
most sensors on digitals are much smaller than 35mm film frames, so the lens of 50mm acts lika a telephoto one.
Camera lenses enhance the photos that the camera shoots. There are also lenses that makes picture finer and let more light in the photos that is why raw photos are more or less do not need editing.
I believe there is a button to the right of where the lenses are on the camera that you can press to eject the lenses.
Camera lenses can easily be replaced. You can visit your local camera store with your camera and they can sell you a new lense. Or, if you prefer to shop online, you can purchase many types from different stores.
It's a Samsung ES60 and it turned off and the lens shutter things were still open. Now when I try to turn it on, it just bleeps and turns off again. The warranty has run out. Would it be cheaper to buy a new one? thank you. Any answers appreciated! x
Pick up the lens, throw it in the trash, and go buy a new one.
It depends on you new camera, you should ask about adapters from Mamiya to your new camera
It entirely depends on the lens mount. Sigma manufactures lenses to fit all major brand camera bodies - 'Sigma 35mm" does not really say much about the lens, I'm sorry to say.
When looking to purchase a digital camera lens online you can check the big retail stores such as Best Buy in their cameras and camcorders section. Another option would be to look at smaller places or ones that specialize in cameras such as Henry's if you are in Canada.
Point-and-shoot digital cameras come with a fixed lens, that often has both an optical zoom and a digital zoom. The fujifilm FinePix S3200 has a 24x optical zoom and 6.2x digital zoom. DSLR cameras such as Canon cameras with an EF mount, like the EOS and Rebel series cameras, can have different le…nses attached. These lenses can have focal lengths of 600mm and beyond. (MORE)
There are many on-line retailers that offer digital cameras with wide angle lenses. One can find such digital cameras on Amazon, eBay and Panasonic's website.
A point and shoot camera in general is a camera where one sees an image through a window in the camera. An SLR, which is also more expensive, allows one to see the actual image that will be taken by the camera.
For a Canon digital camera, a 50mm camera lens is just about right. You can also use other lenses depending on what kind of digital camera you are using.
