Having problems with your Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens ?

Canon on nikon

\015 Hi ThereI have a Nikon D40 and have just received a few old old Canon lenses and flash units. To be precise it is Canon A-1 x 2, Canon AV-1, Canon Macro FD 50mm. Plano UV 52mm, Marexar UV 52mm, Canon Zoom lens FD 28-85mm, Pentax HOYA 52mm UV(0), CPC Phase 2 52mm UV. I am only writing what I am reading on the lenses. I also have a Canon Speedlite 166A and a Canon Speedlite 199A. What I am asking is? Will any of these items work on my camera?\015

Answers :

The Canon lenses are FD mount which means that you will need to get an adaptor to convert the FD mount to fit the F mount on the Nikon. An example of the mount can be seen here:

\015\012As for the speedlights the hotshoe mount will accept them on your Nikon, put them on with fresh batteries and try them out.

Blurred pictures I started using my new Nikon Coolpix on Christmas Eve and have taken photos for about 2 weeks. More than half of the pictures are very blurry after I transferred them to my computer and enlarged them to view. My daughter also got a Canon Elph on the same day and her photo quality is much much better. I also own a Nikon D5000 and have always been very happy with the quality, thus my choice of a Nikon pocket camera. Have I made a mistake?

My MacBook Pro won't read my Canon sd940 camera on either the mac or the windows side. Image capture says ''waiting for device'' and I get pretty much the same message in Windows. The SD card works fine in my Nikon and the canon camera is 1 week old. Is it the camera?

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

I just purchased a Power Shot sx200is. I will be taking pictures this evening where most of the subjects are African American. They will be getting awards and the person giving the awards is Irish American and very light skinned. This will take place in a room that is well lit with florescent lighting. In the past I have had success shooting this combination with a Nikon camera using the night snapshot mode. But this is the first time I will be using the Canon. Any tips you can give me.

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

"busy" Error Yet another Canon 20D question. I have been shooting both film and digital at weddings for the last two weeks. I have been very impressed with the 20D (I shot Nikon for 22 years). However, I have had my share of camera errors on the 20D. Lately, it shuts down in the middle of shooting and the LCD panel reads "busy." The busy error does not go away when turning off the camera. At first I assumed that the buffer was maxed, but I'm only shooting in single shot mode. Eventually, after m

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen.
