fog in the lense of my Vivitar 75-300mm macr focusing lense, can't seem to locat a place to have the lense cleaned. I live in Palestine Texas and have a limited budget.

The fog is most likely lens fungus and is very difficult to remove, so is also expensive to remove. It's not suited to a DIY repair without special tools and equipment. Spare parts for your lens are practically unobtainable, and camera and lens repairers are much rarer these days.

With all due respect, your lens is nearly worthless even if in perfect condition, so your lens is totally beyond economic repair.

You have the following options (in no particular order):-

1. Discard your lens and replace it. You can find replacements very cheaply online, although you may need to be a little flexible as to what's acceptable. Tamron Adaptall-2 lenses can be very good and you can switch the lens mounting to fit your Minolta MD. Lesser-regarded brands such as Sunagor were also in reality very good lenses and their 80-250mm has a very similar effective focal length to your Vivitar. Hoya were also a less-regarded brand despite actually making many of the lenses for "better" brands (including Vivitar, from time to time). You can also find replacement lenses for free either by asking around friends and relatives or by looking/asking on FreeCycle and Gumtree, although it is harder to find them for Minolta than say, Canon, Nikon or Pentax. On the flip side I have had many complete and perfectly functional 35mm SLR outfits from FreeCycle, so if the lens comes with a body attached who's complaining?

2. If the fogging does not affect your images then live with it. if it does reduce contrast, then consider scanning your negatives/transparencies and using free software to repair the images.

3. Leave your lens out in daylight with the lens cap removed. Some of the common types of lens fungus are destroyed by UV light. It won't physically remove the fungus, nor will it repair any damage to the optical elements inside your lens, but it can recover an otherwise unusable lens. If the fogging inside is due to moisture instead, then the fogging may dissipate if the lens is left in a warm and sunny location which is well ventilated. Marks may remain, but they'll rarely affect image quality.

Good luck.

the lense will come out

Lens problems can be caused by a number of happenings. If the camera has been dropped, or some kind of impact such as when in a purse or pocket, then being hit which may not seem much at the moment, but can cause problems.
Lens problems can also be the result of something such as water damage to the camera. If any moisture has been introduced into the internal parts of the camera, damage can result, some of which can cause problems to the lens controls or circuits. Any debris such as sand, dirt or dust can cause damage to the internal workings of the lens.
If nothing works, the camera is only good for parts or repair and can be sold for such on sites such as Ebay.
Always use a padded camera bag such as a zipped type. Also it should always be a common practice to use extra care in the use of such electronic and mechanical devices.

what is the cause of fungus in my camera?

Have you ever used the camera in cold weather and then taken it indoors? Moisture can condense inside and cause mold.

fungus inside lens

if it's mild then it won't have any appreciable effect on your photographs, so leave it until it's worse. The fungus can be slowed or killed by sunlight or by exposing the lens element to ultra violet light.

If it's really bad then you have to decide whether it's worth a professional strip down and clean. You'd have realistic two choices: to remove the fungus and replace all lubricants and canada balsam lens cement with modern antifungal equivalents but leave the damaged lens coatings as they are or to do the same and also have affected lens groups replaced with new ones or have the old ones re-coated. The first option is expensive, the second option is very expensive.

I have a Minolta Rokkor-x 200mm telephoto lens with fungus

Lens fungus is really common and it's not cost effective to repair. Even if the fungus is removed then the multicoatings are permanently damaged.

The good news is that until the fungus becomes pretty severe the image quality doesn't suffer much as most photos use the lens stopped down to some extent and this means that if the centre of the lens is clear then there's nothing to block the light paths.

Unfortunately it does tend to spread, so keep affected lenses in a separate camera bag to the rest and if you can afford to do so then throw them away and replace your camera bag as it will be loaded with microscopic spores waiting to attack more lenses. Making sure that your camera and lenses are completely dry and free of condensation before storing them until next used will prevent reoccurence.
