Answers :

Depends on the adaptors. If they're AI or AI-compatible, then they will work. Of course, you won't get autofocus and you'll have to meter in Manual mode.

I have bought a Besel high def tele zoom lens for my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 camera. I screwed it to the ring that is always screwed to the zoom lens where it fits, but I am not sure this is the adaptor ring the instruction book mentions? It takes very blurry photos even on a tripod.

Broken My camera fell from less than a foot off the ground, and there is no external damage. Everything works, including when I play back pictures and videos, but when i put the camera in shooting mode, the screen displays pink stripes. And when i try to take a picture, the screen turns purple and pink psychedelic.


If the screen is okay when playing back pictures, then the screen is okay. It sounds more like an issue with one of the small ribbon connectors between the lens assembly, that contains the CCD, and the main board. The lens unit floats in the chassi ... Fuji FinePix Z100fd Digital Camera

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all. I tried to connect it to my computer, hoping that it will do something but still nothing. Strangely enough, the lens is on and I don't want to use force to put it back inside, afraid that it might damage the camera even more.Should I send it for repair? and if yes, where is the best place to do it? thanks in advance

The camera will not turn on after being dropped. When I switch it from off to on, the green power LED flashes briefly. The lens does not move or attempt to extend. The LCD backlight does not illuminate. The LCD appears to be slightly damaged: there is some slight non-uniformity visible when I shine a strong light on it. Otherwise the camera shows no sign of damage. Is it possible that the damaged LCD is preventing the camera from turning on? Is there a hard reset procedure I should try? I've t

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

Hi. Last time I went to used my camera the screen showed a message saying the memory card was damaged. When I tok it out I saw that it was slightly damaged on the bottom strip. I have replaced it with another memory card but the same message keeps coming up so I cannot take any photos.The message says: "This memory card cannot be used. Card may be damaged. Insert another card." Any suggestions how I can reset the camera before I pay to put it in for a service?

Camera lens movement mechanism seems to be damaged, as when switched on, the camera lens does not extend out completely and the object appears blurred on the screen. Similarly when switched off, the lens does not retract back completely and it needs a manual push to put it in a little more. But even then it does not go in fully. Rest of the functions are working well. The damage is the result of an accidental body weight going on the camera, when it was in on condition.

Hi. I have a Nikkon D3000, a Sigma 105mm lens, and a round flash ring. I have the settings as: ISO: 200, Shutter Speed: 1/200, F25 for close teeth photos and F8 for face shots. Now I am a dentist and first time user of this camera got the settings from a dental photography website. The proble is: When I take pictures with the flash ring on they turn up black, without the flash ring on and the camera flash on, the pictures turn out clear buy very dark. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

When turned on lense would only retract partially and then turn off. took it apart. I have it to where the camera will now go on, am able to take a photo (all normal) except I cannot get the lense to "attach" to the camera properly. Cylindrical lense. three screws protruding from it. not sure if the lense mounts on a black ring on the front or under the ring. The "in out" mechanism works but it will not grab the lense (cover?) to move out then retract. Seems to need to attach under the ring but

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?
