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.
Addendum to original problem: After trying to use the camera as is, I found that it is unable to take pictures at all. I attempted to take three rolls of 800 film and had the camera format for the conitions after which I had the film processed and receivednot a single image,o app

Your lens is the limiting factor to take macro photos, the kit lens provided with you camera won't focus very closely, nor it will have decent magnification. There are special purpose macro lenses which can stretch up to and over $1000 for a decent quality one. Tamron's 90mm f2.8 is probably the best value one.
A tripod will be of benefit too, as it slows down the process, so you think about your composition, use manual focus and a small aperture for better depth of focus (field).
i have got the same problem my friend and i have just recieved an email telling me to put lens in my camera bag with 2 packs of Silicone gel and the fungus will be taken care of ,if this is not interfering with pics dont be to concerned.
Put the macro adapter on the camera and move the camera in and out from an object to try to focus the object in the display. Remember, macro is very small, very close and very small field-of-focus. I hope this helps.
If the Phoenix lens is autofocus (AF) in Nikon mount, it will work with the D90. You may find that you want to switch to manual focus when you are using it for macro shots for better control of focus. It will still set exposure properly when set to manual focus.
Super Macro will not work in "auto" mode. If you put it in "P" mode
(and possibly the other manual modes) and then press the "macro"
(little flower looking think) button to the left of the lens under "MF"
(manual focus). It will display "hold for super macro" on the screen.
I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.
Guest is quite right - use the macro button on left hand side of lens (holding camera pointing at subject) Press once for "macro" which focuses from 10cm away. If you hold this button in for about 2 seconds, it puts your camera into "supermacro" mode, which gives focus from right up against the lens! (need backlighting for this close!) Supermacro will not work in Auto and Sport mode. Best is to use "AV" or "TV"
As far as viewing your pics goes - rotate the mode lever (You turn this anti-clockwise to turn ON) clockwise and you will see the most recent pic on your LCD screen. Use the left and right direction on the omni selector to naviagate through your pics.
Its a good idea to download the advanced manual onto your pc from the dic supplied. Its an adobe document and very user-friendly.
