    Does this camera have auto zoom, or do you have to rotate the lenses?

SOURCE: Pentax zx-50 Shutter Problems?

I really think this is the classic zx - 50 shutter motor problem : small motor on the side of the mirror box is not cocking the shutter . This is very repairable but unfortunately it requires fair amount stripping down of the camera to get to the fault and so you will have to take it in for repairs.

SOURCE: Film advance lever

Yes this is fairly common with K 1000 and the Spotmatics : although the shutter is cocked and hence you cannot advance film you cannot release shutter because mirror box is not cocked. Remedy : remove bottom cover and locate mirror box lever which protrudes slightely and is movable up and down and is spring loaded. Move upwards until it licks in position ( moving up against spring tension ). Now release the shutter and camera should let you advance the film .

Is it OK to use a Pentax AF500FTZ flash on-camera with a Nikon D70s? Is the trigger voltage going to be a problem? It looks like one can use a Nikon flash on a Pentax DSLR without problems.


The brands use the flash contacts to communicate to the camera. They do not make their flashes compatible with other brands. Don't mix brands. Even if trigger voltageis not an issue, the TTL and AF is not going to function.

Pentax K110d flash trigger problem, I have 2 flash trigger strobes set up and a flash on the hot shoe of the camera, but with shutter release the trigger strobe lights fire but do not show in the pic, only...


Your camera uses a PTTL flash system. That means the flash on the camera fires a "pre-flash" to set the exposure and then the main flash. Your flash trigger strobes are reacting to the pre-flash and firing before the shutter activates. This all happens in a millisecond.

What is the trigger voltage for Pentax AF 500FTZ


When using a digital camera with a flash unit of unknown trigger voltage, you are risking the life of your camera. Excessive trigger voltages can disable the cameras internal circuitry to the point where it is totally beyond repair.

I do not have, in my files. the trigger voltage for the specified flash unit. I only have the specs for larger portables and studio flash gear.

A simple test , however, will reveal the exact trigger voltage. If you have a multi-meter or a DV voltmeter with a 250 VDC range (just to be in the safe side) you can preform this test at home or an electronics service technician can do it for you in a few minutes.

The test lead are placed across the synch contacts on the foot of the unit or plugged into the sunch socket if the flash unit has one. If the reading is more that 4 or 5 volts you can still safely use the flash with the aid of a protector device which goes in between the flash and the camera. Theses are available at better camera shops and dealers.
