Problem with the zoom

Hello,
My JVC Video camera zoom is not properly adjusting. I can only get a clear picture with close ups. If I adjust the zoom it goes blurry. I am trying to take video of my kids but even ewhen they are across the room the only way it shows up clear is on a closeup. The zoom lens is not adjusting and coming up blurry? It is hard to describe!

Hi,
I understand what kind of problem in camcorder and if its in front of me, I will take it apart and reset zoom lens in lens mechanism as zoom lens got stuck for some reason and does not move accordingly with zoom position.
If you are handy with electronics stuff repair and can open this camcorder with care then check lens drive motor as it rotates long shaft to move zoom lens inward-outward, basically lens mechanism has 2 moving lenses inside and one is stuck and needs to be release to move freely.
Local camera repair shop will help you if you feel uncomfortable working in this camera.
Thanks.

Need a manual for a Vivitar Vivicam 8600s


Generally speaking, zooming reduces clarity. This is already a low megapixel camera at 8.1 MP, with a 6X optical zoom. This means that, for anything up to 6 times the resolution, it'll really zoom in by adjusting lenses.

Everything after that (8.5X) will be digital, which will result in noisy (pixelated) pictures.

However, make sure to take a few zoomed pictures and view them on a PC or Mac with an actual monitor. It's possible that the zoomed pictures only look bad on the tiny screen of the camera itself.

How to adjust volume of audio on Everio


To adjust the speaker volume during playback, slide the speaker volume control towards + (plus - right) to turn up the volume, or towards - (minus - left) to turn the volume down.
The speaker volume control is the same as the ZOOM lever on the top of the camera.

The problem is that u know the sony hdv xr500x when u put it on the picture is very dark we have tried it under light too put but the picture is still dark


Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

Every picture i take is not a good quality either it's blurry or the color is horrible - kind of yellowish - what kind of adjustment do i have to make


Well the blurry is caused by poor focus. Try not to zoom too much. Better to get closer to the subject if possible. Study your manual and adjust your diopter which loosely means adjust the viewfinder in and out whilst looking at a subject without using any zoom until the picture is clear. Then take you'll find it easier to focus when you do actually zoom. Sometimes there's a small sliding piece of plastic sticking out of the side of the lens. Otherwise it's a matter of turning the eyepiece to get the clarity. That's why I said check the manual. That will explain which method to use.

The yellowish colour is unusual. I would say check you have the White balance switch set to auto but lack of white balance is not usually a yellow picture. But check the white balance switch anyway and make sure it's in auto mode.

Ordinary light bulbs or some street lighting can give a yellow caste so check you have the inside outside button switched to the correct position, depending on where you are at the time of shooting.

Did you buy the camera used or new. Often people who have faulty cameras will sell them off cheap and run. Leaving the owner with the problems.

So to sum up. get closer to your subject rather than use zoom if you can. If you use a lot of zoom either use a tripod or place the camera on a firm surface or even hold the camera whilst you stop yourself from moving by leaning against a wall or tree etc.

Next remeber where you are and switch the indoor/outdoor switch accordingly

WHEN I ZOOM IN (CLOSE UP HOWDO I GET A CLEAR


When you zoom in, you have to re-focus. If you get too close, you need to switch to "macro" mode. And, it becomes harder to hold the camera steady.

Viewfinder focus


Mickykay,
Have you tried focusing the diopter? The focus wheel is just left of the viewer. If you know all this then consider one more thing. There is a plus and minus setting for your eye so roll the wheel slowly to not miss the sweet spot for your vision. goodeye

JVC camcorder with blurred images


It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment: 1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. 2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you. 3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused. Hope this helps. NewMediaMan

Hi, i had the same problem and was suggested i visited the JVC website, this could be the manufacturers error reported on their web site. Failure of the CCD image sensor. Check JVC UK web site, support centre, if your camcorder has the problems listed, until 01/10/07 they will cover repairs. Mine now works ok. Hope this helps
