Question about Optics

I have an antiqe spyglass

It has the front lens that is cracked. I think I can open the front and take the lens out. Do you know of a company that can duplicate the cracked lense in size and shape? It would be fun to use it without the big crack down the middle of the view.

Please send me any info on companies that could make a new lense.

Do you think an eye glass company could do it?

I can't get the faucet to not move from side to side after it is tightened donw on the granite vanity top. The base is tight and does not move, but the faucet part still moves a little. How can this be...


The faucet should have come with a rubber gasket which goes between the faucet body and the granite top. Make sure it's properly aligned and has not slipped out of place. Be carefull when tightening the faucet to the granite, since granite is easily cracked.

Missing lens


This is going to be very difficult to replace. However you can try contacting this company to see if they can order the part? Tasco does not sell replacement parts directly to the public.

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.

Lens error: camara has broken gears in lens assembly


Hi kevin3738 and a_nester

ok for kevin3738,
im thinking that since you said your lens doesn't extend all the way out that maybe you might have cracked a gear in the lens housing, the mechanism to extend that is located when you open the camera and take off the front face plate, on the right side of the lens housing **silver part** you see a black plastic casing attached to a motor on top and screws in it, that is what moves the lens housing in and out, in that are a few gears, i think 4 of them lat move the housing, 3 small ones and one big one that reaches down to the bottom of the housing, they are interchangable but im not sure as to where you could find a gear to replace the broken or cracked one,

And for a_nester
im gonna take a guess at what exactly the problem is on your camera, and it might be the lens autofocus
in that case you can look here

Broken glass on the lens


Are you kidding? A camera lens are a group of various lenses inside. I don't think it's repairable, but I'd say take it to a local photography store and you can get free advice. I think I understood you, but anyone would have to see the damage in person. From here, I'd say you are in bad luck...it's a goner. Also cameras are not designed to take a big fall like that. There is probably more damage than just the lenses.

Camedia 5-60 pictures are black


Are you sure nothing is blocking the lens on the front? there is a slide that slides open and you can see the lens right? Is the camera in manual mode or auto? if its on manual flip it to auto to test. Point the lens at the light, does the display change? If you bang on the camera does it work? there are some connection problems with some sensors and they can flake out after a while and stop working. Sometimes banging the camera or twisting the case it will flicker or start working again. If it does the sensor is the problem. The screen could be cracked also. Do you have the tv cables with it? try to hook it to the tv and see if you get a picture.
