Can I re-mount thot shoe that went off my Pentax *istD by myself?
\015 Please help! about 3 years ago hot-shoe on my Pentax *istD went off (first time I ever heard of the case). I shoot mainly in studio, so I used PC terminal. Last week it stopped synchronizing the studio unit. I checked the cable many times - it worked, so I understand there's no signal from the camera. Can I re-mount the hot-shoe by myself? How? Thanks!! - Igor\015

Software Installation I recently went out and bought a Pentax Optio SV. It has 5.0 megapixels, and 4.0x zoom. Camera works fine, all that jazz, BUT its the connectivity issue. Pentax has a software that comes along with it that is obviously outdated by a longshot, and when i go to install this ACDSee for Pentax, I try to install but it just says I need Windows Media Player 7.1 or higher to continue, but i have windows media 10.0. Then, I thought i might be tricky and just insert the SD card into

I have a Pentax Optio33LF digital camera, I have seen a home made 35mm slide copier wich is essentially a tube which fits on to the boss on the face of the camera ( at the lens mount ) at the outer end of this tube a slide viewer is mounted. The slide is placed into the viewer, the camera is pointed at the sky then a shot is taken. Is this a good thing to do with the camera? Regards,Jim Edger

Pentax K110d flash trigger problem, I have 2 flash trigger strobes set up and a flash on the hot shoe of the camera, but with shutter release the trigger strobe lights fire but do not show in the pic, only the hot shoe flash is reaching the sensor. but if I slow down shutter to 0.5 sec the strobes show up.?
Your camera uses a PTTL flash system. That means the flash on the camera fires a "pre-flash" to set the exposure and then the main flash. Your flash trigger strobes are reacting to the pre-flash and firing before the shutter activates. This all happe ... Pentax K110D Digital Camera
I just purchased (about one month ago)a Canon 50 D with 28-135 is. Yesterday I recieved a Canon 2.8 IS L 70 -200mm. When I mount the camera to the lens ( the 70-200) I notice a little wiggle in the mount attachment. I went back and checked to see if my other canon and Sigma lenses do this on the 50 d and they do. I just seems more noticeable with the larger lens. Is this normal?
The larger lens is longer and the wiggle is the same amount of play but closer to the end of the lens it moves more due to it being longer/larger. Just insure there is no substantial movement at the actual connection or lens and body. It should lock ... Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera with 28-135mm lens

Lens adaptor I purchased a Phoenix 1300mm lens for my minolta cameras, maxxum 7d digital and analogue. The lens adaptor that was supplied with the lens has no cantacts and when attached to the body and the shutter release pressed, the camera indicates that there is no lens attached. The company that I purchased the lens from in Queensland Australia, and Phoenix themselves no longer seem to be in business so Ihave no results from them. The Phoenix lens is a screw mount looks like early Pentax but
