Broken viewfinder eyepiece
\015 Its not "broken" to where I cant see through it, it is just chipped along the top edge. It chipped while removing a right angle viewfinder. My question is "Can this be replaced?". I see two very small screws, one on each side of the viewfinder. Can I buy another viewfinder from Nikon and replace this myself?\015

I was taking photos over the weekend with my Olympus E-500 and the eyepiece viewfinder got darker than usual. I was using a promaster 5750DX flash. Even without the flash, the eyepiece viewfinder has remained dark. Also, I reset all settings to the default settings and now when the built in flash pops up, there are a series of three "beeps" and the camera tries to focus. I cannot get it to take a photo however. I also pushed the button for the sensor cleaning today. Could this have screwed u

Viewfinder can i use the lcd moniter on back of camera as viewfinder or am i stuck with the tiny eyepiece viewfinder? can't find away to use moniter as view finder.

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?
The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

My Minolta 7D anti-shake appears to be broken. When turning on the camera it hums for several seconds then will not fire...the shutter button being inoperable. All of the anti-shake lights in the viewfinder are lit, and do not go away as per norm. I also think this might be a heat issue. Doest anyone have any solutions to this problem besides costly repair?
Its not a heat issue. The Anti-shake goes off as soon as the shutter opens and closes in split second. This is most likely to be a shutter release mechanism related problem. Since the shutter is taking too long to open/close the lights are not going ... Konica Minolta Maxxum 7D / Dynax 7D Digital Camera

I've recently wet-cleaned my Sony A100 sensor and in the process, I attempted to clean the viewfinder pieces. The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's

I had my D5000 for a month now, recently i noticed something with my camera. looking though the viewfinder only, whenever i focus (half pressing the shutter button), the view from the viewfinder moves up, and without making the shot and letting go the half-pressed shutter button, the view from the viewfinder then moves down to its original position. These movements are noticeable just through the viewfinder with the VR on. But without the VR, the view from the viewfinder makes no movement. i don

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.
Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
