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.

I have an old canon ftb and when looking thru view finder there is a red rectangle almost like a piece of tape stuck on bottom right corner. thanks for any help. See attached


Hi Dear!
http://www.baytan.org/prak/pdf/CanonFTb.pdf
Please check with page 21 on the manual. However, it looks like a loosen piece from penta prism supporting piece moves around. It won't give shutter functionality but it could cause metering problem sometime. It has some timing involve with disassemble, I won't recommend you to opening the camera unless you are ok with lose your camera broken. You should bring to your local repair shop.
Hope You Luck! A Professional Camera Clinic Guy!

Just got a 645= shutter "release jammed:, I put in new battery and also missing the crank arm, must have had a motor handle before. its like new, meter in prism works new battery,have old 645 J to...


if the shutter is jammed just off the device,and slightly pull the shutter door with your hand 3-4 times.apply a drop of oil on both the sides.and then on the device.and check it will work.
and for the replacement off the handle you will have to check on the old device that where are locks in the back you just have to remove that locks,also check for the hidden screws in the centre or back of the handle.which may be blocking it to be removed easily.

thanks.

Cracked view finder


That would depend on which part of the viewfinder that needs repair or replacement. If it's the piece of glass at the very back, where you put your eye, it wouldn't be that expensive. If it's the prism inside the hump atop the camera then it would be quite expensive.

I have a fugi fine pix, when using it in bright sun light i cant see anything


Geofchaam,
You could be experiencing one of two issues:
1) You are having a difficulty viewing the image on the back of the camera (not the view finder). This is common on cameras out in the sun, try cupping your spare hand over the screen to cast a shadow on the screen.
2) You cannot view anything in the view finder. Since the view finder has its own tiny LCD display inside of it, it is displaying what image the camera will take if you press the shutter release. I would double check to see if the camera is set correctly for shooting in bright sunlight (check your owners manual, or set the camera to Automatic), and if there is a difference between what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and what images the camera is taking, consider calling Fuji, as it sounds like a hardware issue.

Hi, Hope you can help me. My husband has a vivitar series 1 -50600 telescope and seems to work fine apart from the view is upside down. We have tried moving everything that moves, lol but cannot change it....


Astronomical telescopes usually show an upside down image. There is a good reason for this- erecting the image needs more bits of glass in the light path, which reduces the amount of light and increases aberrations. Even if this is only slight, astronomers prefer to avoid it, and they don't really care which way up the Moon or Jupiter appear. It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one.

Why are you using a light meter with a point-and-shoot camera?

Can't Find Battery.


The camera itself doesn't have a battery. If you have a light meter in the finder however, then the battery for it is in the finder itself. Press the button the back on the left side while at the same time, push the lever over on the finder. That will release the viewfinder.

Look underneath and you will see the battery cap. Unscrew that and you'll see the compartment. If it is an old FTn finder, then it will likely take the mercury batteries that are about 1.35V. They don't sell those anymore as mercury is illegal in consumer batteries, but if you do a search on eBay for 1.35V WEIN cells you should be able to track down replacement batteries.

You could put Duracell PX625 batteries in, but they ar 1.5V and thus will give inaccurate meter readings.

FD-95, F-stops & Strobes?


You might try adding an external view finder that is close to the FD-95 picture size. A lot of old cameras have them and it could also be used for sports as well, it could be added with Velcro or some other type of mounting. I am working on this problem myself. Good luck
