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
Nikon coolpix S51 camera with 2GB Ocz card. Card works fine in the camera and PC can read fine from the camera thru USB connection. But when I put the card in card reader Windows XP sees the card but says that it is not formatted and asks if I want to format it now. Nikon transfer does not see the card either. Should I format it in Windows first and then use it in the camera?

I have just recently boughta Nikon D60 and currently own a Tamron 28-300 lens and a 90 macro lens. I think that I want to buy a strob after a workshop I went to this past weekend.

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.
It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras
Do all nikon lenses mount the same or are the digital cameras difrent? I own a nikon 6006 camera and want to know if i can use my lenses with the D90 or do I need to get diffrent lenses?
Yes and no. Physically they will all fit (with very rare exceptions, such as the 6mm f/2.8 fisheye).Most Nikon dSLRs have a sensor that is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. What this means is that you end up using only the central area o ... Nikon D90 Body Only Digital Camera
Focus problem I have had my nikon d-60 for one year. I have always had problems with the focus. At first I thought it was user error but after a few prof. photographers have used it, they have come to the same conclusions. I will want to focus on people and it will focus on the tree behind them. I have tried focus locking on my subject and slightly moving the camera, I have tried not moving the camera focusing the camera, I have tried multiple settings. I have not been able to resolve this on my

I have a nikon coolpix s4. I have used a Kodak sd 256mb memory card for years which has worked fine. I am going on a trip and wanted more memory and got a 4gb memory card. When I insert the card into the camera it reads "this card cannot be used." Why can't I use the card?
The S4 uses SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and thus will not work in the S4. You will need to stay with cards 2GB and smaller. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it ful ... Digital Cameras
I have a Nikon CoolPix S8000. I have used it a while. When I last turned it on it said my Chip was unformatted and asked if I wanted to format it. I have a number of pictures on the chip and of course do not want to loose them by formatting. When I access the chip with a computer it tells me the chip is not formatted. A new chip works fine in the camera. How can I access my pictures on the rogue chip (SD Kingston 1GB)?
