You didn't provide the name or model lens, so I can provide generic assistance that applies to many lenses. Hopefully, it will work for you.

Many lenses need to be set to the smallest aperture setting in order to be controlled by the camera. If it is moved off this value, the camera will be unable to change the f-stop value. If it is stuck - meaning the camera can't change it - make sure it is set for the smallest opening (highest number 28, 32, etc.). If it is stuck meaning you are unable to twist the aperture ring on the lens barrel to manually change the setting, look for a small tab that engages the aperture ring. They are often employed to prevent accidental movement of the aperture ring off of the smallest opening.

Good luck!

I have a Nikon D-40 I'm currently using a 55-200


Fisheye is the extreme of a wide angle lens. I think you are not using a fish eye lens, but a fish eye adopter. That is a lens that will "shorten" the focal length of a lens most of the time with 30 % sometimes with 50% when you put it in front of your lens. So you could make a 24 mm lens look or act like a 12 mm.
On your tele lens this only will slightly shorten the 55 mm, but even 50 % of 55 is 27 mm and can't be seen as a fish eye.
I think when you put this on a short lens, the picture you get will be round, like you were using a real fish eye.

I JUST got a Nikon Cool Pix L22 but no matter what setting I use EVERY picture is blurry. I am an art teacher and understand shutter speed and aperture, I even used a tripod. The pictures are still...


Most likely your fisheye lens attachment is out of alignment. An internal element may have come unscrewed or unglued. The other option (I'm assuming you have already checked this) is that it is incorrectly attached to the camera - check your threads and make sure it wasn't cross threaded and that there are no blockages to the lens attachment being screwed in completely. If the fisheye lens is not in the correct position relative to the CoolPix lens, then the pictures will be blurry.

How do I get my lomography fisheye to advance?


Turn the thumb wheel located behind the shutter release button until it stops at the next frame.

Note that on your model the MX button (Multiple eXposure) to the left of the thumb wheel often gets stuck and prevents the film from advancing. The button should be firmly to the right when not in use. If the MX system is broken there's nothing you can do as the parts cannot be repaired or replaced. All LOMO and Holga models are extremely cheaply made plastic "toy"cameras and are not designed to last. Most have a maximum design lifespan of ten to twelve rolls of film, the FishEye model is designed to last just half that. It's only in Western countries that these models sell for ridiculously high prices, as an example my Lomo FishEye cost me 48 Hong Kong Dollars (that's just under GBP£4 or just over US$6). Back home in the UK they sell for ten times more.

The above explanation is not meant to be disparaging about your camera, but is just to illustrate that these cameras are really built from the start as disposable cameras which have the added bonus of being reusable a few times so cannot usually be repaired when broken.

Can you use a fisheye lens on the Nikon Coolpix P80


I do not think any company makes an Fisheye lens attachment for Nikon P80. This is a fixed lens camera.
If it is being manufactured by any 3rd party then Nikon then you can only attach it to the front of the P80's lens.
Caution. Nikon P80 is a super zoom and lens barrel is made up of plastic that is too light weight. Do not attach heavy peace of metal on the lens. it can only carry the filters.

I just purchased the Zeikos fisheye lense for my 50mm Nikkor lens and when I attach it, it doesn' take fisheye photos - just regular with some distortion around the edges... am I using this incorrectly?...


The 50 mm lens is a full frame lens, and the D80 is a DX camera. This means that the 50mm lens puts an image out that is bigger than what the D80 can "see". The good part of this is that the D80 (and most of the other Nikon DSLR's) use only the image from the center part of an older lens. The bad part is that if you put the fisheye filter on it, the fisheye effect that is mostly seen at the edges of the lens doesn't show up on the D80 sensor. If you could put the fisheye filter on a DX lens, it would give you the full effect.

Like to fit my bronica fisheye p e into nikon f 5 camera


The lens you're refering to is the Fisheye-Zenzanon-PE 30mm, yes? As far as I'm aware no Bronica ETR > Nikon F adaptor has ever been made, and if one was to be it would be rather cumbersome.
You're probably better off selling it and using a Nikon Fisheye-Nikkor 16mm 1:2.8 in its place.
