I am not sure if this is the right solution. If you mean the focus is constantly changing while shooting in video mode, you have to change your settings to something other than tracking and auto focus. When these menus are selected, the camera constantly adjust it's lens to maintain the subject in focus. If the subject moves, the camera re-adjust again and that usually records the blurred moments in the video.

Sigma 17-50 2.8 EX HSM lens is stuck and won't zoom. It takes pictures Ok and sometimes it even focuses in automatic. I can also take pictures without zooming. Can someone help on how to fix.


Hi.
Probably the problem come from a loose screw inside zoom cylinder. Normally it happens due to constant use or vibration.
The GMR sensor is very sensitive to magnetized tools an needs an accurate position to function properly.
If you don´t have experiencie with this electronic systems, it is better you to contact Sigma Service in Ronkonkoma, N.Y.

Nikon EM (1979?) When I zoom out with my lens, the picture in the viewfinder is very blurry.


What happens when you turn the focus ring? And just out of curiosity, how are you getting to a 30mm setting on a 35-105mm lens?

Hi I bought a pro-spec 70-210 lens for my Sony Alpha. When you go to zoom out it doesn't twist. You can pull it straight out...Is this how it should work? The rest of my lenses all twist out


Yes. It's a push pull zoom action.

One touch zooms as used on 35mm film SLRs used to have the same mechanism, the zoom ring twisted as well to achieve focus but now that most lenses are autofocus that's unnecessary. So you have a lens which just retains the push-pull, a far more natural action in my opinion and usually faster than a rotating zoom. Once you get used to it I think that you'll prefer it.

By contrast, most modern zooms have what was considered in 35mm terms to be an old-fashioned twin touch zoom: one ring was turned to zoom the lens and another was turned to focus it. This sometimes meant that after zooming you had to refocus; your push pull zoom will likely have a more technically demanding constant focus zoom action, there will be an additional manual focus control as well, but it's very much a minor secondary control used only when your AF has broken or is switched off.

I hope that my reply has been of use to you, please return the favour by rating my answer.

Constantly refocuses while taking video


If you aren't planning on zooming in or out, you can lock the AutoFocus by:
- first assign the shortcut key to the AFL (Auto Focus Lock) setting (by going to Menu, then "Set Shortcut button") - then while filming, press the shortcut key (which you have assigned to the AFL setting) and the focus will adjust and unlock (the AF will unlock when you press any other button). - each press of the shortcut key will adjust and lock the focus

Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.


The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.

Lens failing to function properly


Yes, this is a strange issue. Have you dropped the unit, or maybe 'bumped' it or anything similar. I know alot of times, people like to 'hit' their unit, to get it to do things (like eject tape). What people don't realize, is that these machines are prone to damage when hit hard enough (just like anything else).

In any event, this is not an misconfiguration issue, and you won't be able to fix it. You would need to bring it in to a qualified service center for an estimate. Be sure to shop around to find the best price and service. Since parts for these are not cheap, and they are labor intensive.

Good luck.

Hope this helps some.

Lens failing to function properly


Possibility is two. 1. If the lens contact to the body is not good so make sure the contacts are clean and position is locked completely. 2. 90% of the solution comes from repair on Main circuit in the lens. Good Luck. For further assistance go to www.camerarepairjapan.com James.
