Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My son recently was given a Pentax K100 D. He had a previous film camera for which he purchased a Sigma Zoom 28-300mm 1:35-6.3 witha Minolta mount. The question is:is it possible to purchase a Pentax adapter mount and stiil be able to use his old lens? My son lives in the U.K. Hope you can help.Thanks


Answers :

Can all PENTAX 35mm interchangeable lenses be used with the K100D?
\015\012Yes, however there are restrictions when using\015\012lenses other than DA, D FA, FA, FA J series lenses. When using D FA or\015\012FA lenses the aperture ring must be set to the A (auto) position.\015\012A-series lenses are manual focus only. Lenses without the A (auto\015\012position) require the user to set the custom function to use non-A\015\012position lens. These lenses also lack the contacts to make full use of\015\012the 16 segment metering system.

\015\012Can PENTAX 645 lenses, 67 lenses and S (Screw mount) lenses be used with K100D?
\015\012PENTAX 645, 67-system lenses and S (Screw mount)\015\012type of lenses may be used with an adapter, though some functions may\015\012not be available with certain lenses.
\015\012
Can non-PENTAX interchangeable lens be used?
\015\012Not recommended, we assume no responsibility or\015\012liability for damage resulting from the use of lenses made by other\015\012manufactures.
Hi,
\015\012
\015\012I am sorry but there is no such adapter that I am aware of.

I found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry


No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras

I need some followup help. The PNY 4 GB memory card that I purchased for my pentax optioS5z camera seems to be incompatible. the old card that we have been using is a Sun 1 GB. Is there a data limit that the camera can handle? The new card says "only compatible with SDHC Host Devices". Is my camera too old for this? thanks.


Have you tried to format the card. If not try that. If that does not work then your camera will not be able to use the 4 gb card that is SDHC. The HC means High Capacity. You will only be able to use 1 or 2 GB cards. \ ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera

Hello I just purchased a .42 wide angle fisheye lens for my panasonic lumix dmc-fz8 and when i bought it on ebay it said its for either a fz7/8. When i tried to attach it today the lens adapter does not fit the thread. I was wondering if maybe the lens on the camera should be taken off? I'm not sure. And it is possible to just use the fisheye lens without the adapter? Because it fits when just put the fisheye lens but when i turn it on it says "please remove lens cap then press play" so I'm very

It won't turn on even with a fully charged battery. What do I do? I've owned it for at least 5 years and have three batteries and a pentax charger that turns green when a battery is charged. I put the batteries in correctly. Now the camera will not turn on. My wife was using it on a trip when it happened. I can't seem to get it to turn on now despite trying everything I know and reading the manual. Any ideas for me. Is it possible that all three batteries are too old yet appearing to char

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit.
