Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera ?

I was cleaning my camera mirrors and the lens, two of them along with a brass colored and chrome frames fell out and I I don't know what order they go back in. They are the lense that make the viewfinder work and the auto focus. Sony DSLR a100

Answers :

A year later but I had exactly the same problem and after much trial and error worked it out. They go together as follows...
\015\012With the camera held upside down looking into the body, the sequence is:
\015\0121st insert the focussing area screen with the etched markings, with the small side lug to the back left corner and the two little bumps on the flat surface facing down. It slides in best from the back so that the front locates first and it then drops into place.
\015\012Next goes the metal spacer with the thicker side to the right and the small locating slots to the back. Again it slides in best from the back to the front so that the front edge locates first and then it should just drop into place.
\015\012The frosted glass goes in next with the two locating lugs to the back and facing downwards so they will locate into the metal spacer.
\015\012Finally the retaining clip should fit with the small protrusion locating into the small slot to the rear of the assembly. Gently push the front clip backwards and downwards until it clips into place.
\015\012Job done! Quite fiddly to get the parts to locate properly though - not really a job for stubby fingered person like me!
\015\012Hope this helps.

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

Viewfinders are very sensitive and delicate. The best and safest way to clean the viewfinder screen is not to touch\015\012it and not to use solvents on it. No matter how dirty it is it won't\015\012affect the image. If it gets dusty, use a blower to ... Digital Cameras

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 was needing a new flash for my sony a230 camera and I ordered a sony flash from accessorycircuit.com. Anyway to make a long story short, they were out of the flash I wanted and said that they had got the new Vivitar Pro 648 series flash in and that it was really good and would work with my camera. I wanted to read up and find out more before I bought it. I can only find out the tech specs on the vivitar pro648 on the vivitar site and that is the only place I can find out any info at all.
