Panasonic lumix dmc-fz8 shutter button cracked

Hello. I have dropped my camera and from the impact the shutter button has cracked. Now, without the button, I can only take photos without the posibility of zooming. What I would like to know is if I can purchase from somewhere the piece of plastic that includes the shutter button or if this problem could be resolved in service. Thank you.

Hi dear, you can try to order the parts from Panasonic and do it yourself.
I strongly recommend you bring your camera to an authorized repair center to get it fix by them.Because it looks simple to open the camera but it's not.

I set my camera to Manual setting but it takes blur photos. I am beginner and I don't know how to properly set the camera good for Manual setting. Any good setting for Manual? I will set that on m


The first number is the shutter speed and the second is the aperture. The two factors control the exposure.

The shutter speed (in this case 1.3 seconds) is how long the shutter is open to allow light to pass through the lens and strike the image sensor. The longer it's open the more light passes through. If there's not much light, like indoors or at night, the shutter needs to be open longer. A fast shutter speed can "freeze" motion, useful for things like sports. A slow shutter speed allows the subject to blur, useful for things like running water.

The aperture (in this case f/4.5) is a measure of how wide the lens opening is. The wider the opening the more light comes through. A smaller opening produces more depth of field.

The two work in tandem to achieve proper exposure. An oft-seen analogy is filling a bucket with water. You can turn the tap on all the way and fill it quickly, or just crack it open and let it take a long time filling drop by drop. Either way the bucket eventually fills up, but the two pictures may look very different.

I suggest you visit your local library and take a look at some introductory photography books. They will discuss the impact of shutter speed and aperture in much more detail than I can give here.

Hi i have dropped my d50 and err comes up


There is a motor/gear assembly inside the camera that moves the lens in and out and covers the lens when it is retracted. When it dropped, you most likely cracked or shifted something out of place. A broken tooth does not stop function, but shudders when it hits the gap. A shifted gear, slips and similarly may cause this effect. If it doesn't open the shudder, you get no picture.

You will need to open it up and attempt to repair the mechanics that drive the lens.

Hello I have a nikon coolpix s7c that i bought in the usa about 2yrs ago i dropped it it does every thing but take photoes or film anything. i think the shutter must be stuck. bought anotherone off ebay...


Yes, but its not somehing you're going to be able to do without explicit knowledge - as there are 200 pieces in the shutter alon that must be disassembled properly in tight tolerances - and then faulty parts replaced.

I recommend taking the camera in to an AUTHORIZED Nikon repair shop to have it cleaned and repaired.

Fuji FinePix F30 shutter problem: won't take pictures


Its fairly easily fixed and its a common problem with the F30. The shutter button contact slides off upon impact when dropped, it must be re-aligned so that it makes proper contact and performs normally. All that is needed is the special screw driver for the F30 (easily purchased online, just google it: "screw driver for fuji f30" ) or bring it to your local watch/jewelry repair store and tell them to open it up for you.

We have two F30's and they both have been dropped, both did the same thing with the shutter button. But both were easily fixed. Always keep the camera in a safe place and away from kids, they are very sensitive devices. Use the wrist cord when taking photos.

Dropped Nikon Camera Sadness


Hi Al
not sure if i can help here but will try.
Ive not owned the D50 but i have the feeling the highlights function is similar to other cameras in the Nikon range.

On your cursor when viewing an image, just press down on the cursor maybe once or twice to remove the highlights .This is just a pointer for you like the histogram.

Now it seems like you may have damaged the sensor and will not collect enough light.

Try setting the camera to A = aperture priority and take a shot in bright light...no flash.

Are the images still dark ?

If so raise your iso to 800 and shutter speed to 1/250 at F5.6 aperture in mode S =shutter priority and take the shot in bright conditions.

Are the shots still dark ?

My Fuji Finepix F30 has a broken shutter button. The problem seems mechanical, because it won't work in any mode. Can it be repaired?

D80 LCD not responding and Focusing Issue


If you were not half-pressing the shutter button when you turned on the camera, then you may need to have this problem serviced.

LCD being unresponsive also seems like a servicing type problem.

I don't think your shutter count of 5000 is an issue as I know a lot of people with more shutter counts who do not face this issue. Its likely that the cam was dropped or exposed to the elements so it needs to be serviced

I dropped my camera and now the pictures are funny...


What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
