Default Lens question on Kodak 6330

When the lens on my camera is fully extended, I notice it seems kinda flimsy. I don't know if the camera was designed like this but, let's say, if I were to touch the lens, it doesn't seemed fixed; it moves from side to side. Is this normal?

I guess we're on the same boat. I was very dissapointed by the pictures from my CX6330, especially after the camera got such rave reviews. Most of my prints are out of focus and the colors seem dull. Also, if I don't use the focus, a black shadow is visible around the edges of the photographs.

If you have a shadow around the edge of your images there is most likely a problem with your lens, this is called vignetting.

I suggest you take a sample pic and the camera back to where you got it from and ask them to exchange it.

I have a CX6330, it is very quiet when zooming, it produces very good pictures.

Dave,

Would you please look at the new pictures I uploaded to my site? I'm wondering if these are examples of vignetting. These were taken without zoom. It seems almost all, if not all, of my zoom-less photos turn out with this black shadow. If I use the zoom, they tend to look out of focus. Go to http://community.webshots.com/user/ksordo74100. Also, you mentioned on another thread you took a picture of your Christmas tree, could you please post that pic to see how it turned out. Thanks.

Kris

Hello There Kris,

You do have a problem with vignetting, your lens I believe is totally
out of whack, take the camera back as soon as possible.

Just as a matter of interest has anyone dropped your camera?,

Was the camera factory fresh or had the box been opened before?

Was it a demo or display camera?

I am sorry I deleted the Xmas pics but you can see what CX6330 pictures should look like at my webpage which is at

http://members.optusnet.com.au/~davereys/

Some were also taken with the 2MP CX6230.

Please let me know how you went when you take your camera back.

Regards
Dave

Dave,

Thanks for your input. Yeah, I've visited your page. Your pics look awesome! That's why I was wondering why mine look like crap In response to your question, I bought the camera refurbished; on an online bidding place. It's still under warranty, though. My camera hasn't been dropped

Hi There,

I am an old guy 60 that has taken lots of photos over a 46 year period, 25 years as a wedding photographer.

I will be giving the wedding photography away in June this year.

I hope to take a 2, 3 or maybe 4 year tour around Australia and photograph as much of the place as possible.

I am glad you liked the website.

Regards
Dave
