Question about Kalimar K-90 35mm 35mm Point and Shoot Camera

LED's not working

I recently picked up a K-90 with all of the manuals, a macro lens with manual, and a auto flash with manual. I put new batteries in the camera, for the exposure meter's LED's I suspect, as the camera is all manual. Anyway, when you get the shutter speed and aperture set up and the lens focused, you are supposed to be able to push the shutter release button halfway down and see the LED's (red &/or green) through the view finder. They are there to let you know if the subject is under, over, or correctly exposed. Mine don't show up at all. I am trying to discover if a) I can fix the problem myself, b) if it is worth having it fixed by someone who knows what they are doing, or c) I should just forget about it and either use the camera as is or get another, newer, camera? Any help anyone may have about this is extremely appreciated.

Shutter broken

You have a cheap Chinese copy of a Ricoh KR10-Super.

Assuming the shutter is actually broken (you didn't give details of symptoms) you cannot get spares for either of them. Throw it away (keep the lens) and buy any other Pentax K-Mount 35mm SLR camera, they're virtually worthless these days (except for the all-manual Pentax K-1000 and a few high-end models).

The near-worthless resale values means that you can pick them up from your local FreeCycle (also Freegle in the UK only) groups for nothing.

Pentax, Cosina, Ricoh, Chinon are the main brand names for K-Mount SLR's, but if you have a choice go for Pentax first, Ricoh second and only take the others if they're free as they're worth even less than a set of new batteries.

How and When to use AUTO FOCUS and MANUAL FOCUS of my contax t2 camera?

There are no rules or conventions for this. It is totally up to you to chose which method to use.

Sometimes when taking images in close up where a leaf or stalk may invoke autofocus to lock onto the wrong object to get a clear pic, then select manual so your subject is in focus

Depth Of Field is also associated with focusing, autofocus does not always deal well ith DOF situations. It might be better for you to get a simple book on digital photography to help you understand how to get the best results from your camera

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

I need instructions for minolta freedom zoom 70 exI want to know what macro does.

Hi. As a pro photographer, I can tell you what 'macro' does on all cameras or lenses. 'Macro' focusing is for focusing on close objects, say an inch or two from the lens to a couple of feet. It is for closeup shots, say ants, or a fly, or someone's eye, raindrops on glass, etc. Try it out sitting on a patterned countertop or table or tablecloth to give you an idea, focusing far away and up close.
As far as the manual, there doesn't seem to be anything on the official site unfortunately. Good luck and have fun.

Where can I get a manual for this 35 mm camera? Canon does not have one on line.

The dial has six positions. If you rotate the dial fully clockwise, you are at the "Auto" position. In this position, the flash will fire if light is insufficient.
One click counterclockwise from this is "Auto with Redeye Reduction", and a preflash lamp will fire before the shutter to reduce redeye.
The next click counterclockwise is the "Off" position.
The next click counterclockwise is the "Flash On" position, and the flash will always fire with the shutter.
The next click counterclockwise is the "Flash Off" position, and the flash will not fire.
Full counterclockwise is the "Self Timer" position, and the shutter will fire 10 seconds after the button is depressed.

Help!! 10-year old Accura Zoom 80 film camera is taking blurry photos all of a sudden

you should be able to place your hand in front of the auto focus window while looking in front of camera (be careful not to blind yourself with the flash) you should notice the lens moving sightly as if to focus. The best way though is to actually shoot a roll through it. Do not shoot a wedding or anything of real importance...the cost of a roll of film and develop is worth piece of mind.

i think it means the film hasn't loaded properly. I had this and opened up the back and the film hadn't wound so it wasn't exposed. Anyway i just wound the film around a bit and shut the back and it turned on like normal. hope this helps.
