Push in, then turn the knob on the release button side of the prism at top, and at the same time push in the button on the camera back, rewind knob side. The prism will pop out.

When I look through the view finder--everything is upside down???


Astro telescopes normally do show an inverted image, since for most purposes this does not matter. For terrestrial viewing, such as thru someone's window, you can buy an "erect image" or "correct image" prism which gives an upright image.

I don't know of such a thing for the finder scope, you would have to buy a new finder.

Minolta x700 cannot see through the lens. help


Which lens? Is this happening with just one lens, or with every lens you mount on the camera?

If you remove the lens and look through it, can you see light? Perhaps an upside-down view of whatever is on the other side?

If you look into the camera body after removing the lens, do you see a mirror at a 45-degree angle?

No image through lenses


1. During the daylight point the telescope towards an object (water tower, building ) something about 1/2 mile away.
2. Locate the object in your finder.
3. Use the 12.5mm lens (50x) and look through the telescope. Do not use the erect prism
4. Align the finder to what you see in the scope.
5. You can use the 4mm to fine adjust the finder.
6. On a good, clear night.Leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium ( about a hour) Point the finder towards the moon
7. Use the 12.5mm and then focus on the moon.

Note: This is NOT a quality scope. Avoid any scope with .965 eyepieces and silly magnifications! Max power on this scope on a PERFECT night is 200x and Huygens (H12.5) eyepieces give very narrow and poor viewing. Do not use the 3x barlow or the erecting prism. the erecting prism is for terrestrial viewing only and the barlow, although it increases the eyepiece by 3x, will also narrow the view.
Good Luck!

I recently bought a nikon f2. After I bought a battery (single 3 volt as recommended by the person at batteries plus) I opened the battery compartment, with the positive pole pointing out, closed the...


The Nikon F2 for me is the best mechanical film camera ever produced. The only electrical or battery- dependent part is its metering. Meaning to say, even without batteries, the F2 should work and take pictures on all shutter speeds. Most probably, the F2 that you bought has a non-working photomic meter finder due to a defective ring resistor, a part that is usually the first thing that would fail on this camera. What, then, are your options? One, have the meter fixed by a competent manual camera technician. Two, buy a working Photomic finder and replace what you have. Three, buy or use a handheld meter. Four (the least expensive), use the sunny 16 rule. As added reference, here's a link that might help enlighten you more about how the F2 metering works: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/nikonf2/prisms/dp11/index.htm

I want to look out at the city with a telescope. What should I get?


The scope has upside down images--- all astronomical telescopes do this it is normal.

You can buy an "erecting prism diagonal" for this scope if the focuser hole is 1.25 inch-- here:

When i view through it everything is upside down, can you help?


ALL astronomical telescopes show upside down images, it's normal. Nothing is wrong with your scope. For terrestrial viewing you can buy an "erecting prism" like this one:

I can't see the meter in the view finder? Is


Yes, the V3800N has an exposure meter.

If the red - lights up, you're underexposed. If the red + lights up, you're overexposed. If the green circle lights up, you're right on. If both the red and green light up, you're within one-third stop of the right exposure.

If you don't see either the green or red lights, then you need batteries. The camera uses two LR44 alkalines or two SR44 silver-oxides. But the only thing that uses the batteries is the exposure meter: everything else on the camera is stil fully functional.

I have two Sony PX11 projectors, one with a bad (discolored prism). How can I pull the prism out to replace it?


it's not the prism. chancs are it's the light filter(s) on the lcd panels. the prism is just coated glass. the light filters determine the color. you need to take the top off, the main board off (unplugging the ribbon cables), and the lens off. the lcd panels anf the filters are attached to the prism. remove the filters, but do not remove the lcd panels!

My Pentax Camera Light Meter is not registering changes made to the Aperture Ring.


Take lens off to check the lens/light-meter coupler situated inside the lens mount at the top part of the mount at 'one o'clock' . First see if it moves freely ,clock wise. Then -with the lens off- look through the view finder while you activate the coupler : moving it should make the l.meter lights move up and down.
If you are not getting any joy the connection between the coupler and the board needs re-soldering ( dry joints ) : remove top cover and resolder two blue wires on left hand side of the board . This should do the trick.

Minolta XG-1 Film Camera View Finder has Door Seal Foam stuck in it.


jrbw123,

the top cover must be removed and the flex circuit on top of the prism must also be removed. then remove the prism to access the fresnel lens. the lens is extremely fragile and very difficult to clean.i would try to replace it with a good used one if possible. unless your a intricate instrument repair person i would let a camera repair person do this.
