This is one of the most frequently occurring errors on some Sony cameras (eg. HXR-NX5, HDR-AX2000, HDR-FX1000, DCR-VX2200). In addition to the error E:61:10 there are also possible errors E:61:11, E:62:00, E:62:10, E:62:01, C:32:60.
In result the picture is completely out of focus (blurred image), it is not possible to adjust focus manually or in auto mode or there is a tremor on the camera body.
The same effect can occur in a number of other models like PMW-EX1 / EX1R, PMW-EX3.
In Euro Cori these defects are usually fixed within 1 business day. After repair of the lens all the necessary lens adjustments are performed (back-focus, iris, optical stabilizer, etc.).

We do not recommend temporary repairs, as it is often performed by some service centers because of bad experience of customers, who already went through that kind temporary repair. And because professional cameras are usually used in professional work we are sure the risk of seeing the same problem again must be eliminated.
In rare cases repair of the lens may not be possible, and then we will offer replacement of the lens with a new one at a discount price.
