There are a lot of adopter rings available. But most will turn the combination into a MF lens. Most non Nikon tele convertors, only can be used in MF when put on a Nikon camera, so I don't think you lose a lot when you find a Soligor Nikon adopter ring.

Sigma 2x tele converter is loose

I had an issue with my Sigma 1.4X TC where it became loose after several years of use. I fixed min as follows:

On the camera-mount side (where TC attaches to camera) I removed the tiny four screws. Then I very carefully lifted up the metal mount being careful not to damage the ribon cable which is attached to it. I DID NOT complete remove it, I just tilted it up so as not to damage the cable. I then tightened the 3 screws that I found below that as all three were loose. I think that there may be four screws, but I could only see 3 of them without removing the plate further. after tightening the screws and replacing the metal plate and the four screws holding it, the mount was again tight and the attached lens functioned normally.

Hi - is it possible to remove the lens from an Olympus C-7070 camera? I want to try to fit it on to an inverted microscope with a bayonet fitting. Thanks, Paul

The lens is not designed to be removed and the camera will not function if you do manage to do so as it will report a lens error. To avoid this will involve bypassing various microswitches, simulating missing inputs and making other custom modifications to your camera. It's not impossible but you'll be on your own with the modifications, adapting and inventing as you go.

Ideally you either need a suitable SLR with an adaptor, or a camera which will accept an adaptor onto the front filter fitting (not all compacts and bridge cameras have them though).

You'd best contact Olympus directly for suggestions: they're a major microscope manufacturer and have always had the best solutions for using their cameras with microscopes. They have in the past produced a surprising number of microscope adapters for their models and have often produced special versions of their cameras designed solely for use with microscopes, endoscopes and similar non-standard applications.

Konica lens converter to Olympus

They're easy to adapt to fit on a 4/3 mount body, but the lens will be totally manual and will not automatically communicate information about which lens aperture is in use to your camera. You will also not have the ability to automatically stop down the aperture when shooting, so you'll need to focus with the aperture ring set to the widest setting (allows in most light to make focussing easier) and then turn the aperture ring down to the correct setting for actual exposure.

In all, it's a bit of a chore, but does allow you to use your lens. Optical quality will not seem as good as you remember, contrast will be lower (unless you mask the rear of the lens to suit the smaller 4/3 sensor) and the lens will have the same angle of view as a long telephoto zoom in the 160-400mm range, so almost all shots will have camera shake unless you use the image stabilisation and/or a tripod. All of that may sound off-putting, but with care and awareness of the limitations of what you propose you'll still be able to achieve very good results. I use a commercially available adapter to use many of my old OM mount lenses on my E-510 with all the same caveats and have been pleased with the results.

If you Google "Konica to 4/3" you'll find further details, but to get you started click here for a link to someone who can supply ready made adapters (I have no personal experience of the supplier), but if you or anyone you know has basic workshop skills you can make them yourself using details available from the search term I suggested.

I hope that my reply has helped you to decide what to do next and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to rate my answer..

Is there a way 2 reset the camera. I can't see

If the screen displays pictures taken before the fault occurred without problems, then the symptoms you have described are classic signs of a failed CCD unit. This unit is what captures the images to start with and is what digital cameras use instead of film. Over time, the materials of the unit start to break down and irreversible chemical and physical changes occur.

if the fault affects old images as well then check the electronic viewfinder to see if the same fault is showing. If it is, then you have a duff circuit board and the camera is scrap as the circuit boards are no longer available. Even if you did find one it's very expensive to have it replaced. If the fault is with only the main rear LCD screen then you can either continue to use the electronic viewfinder alone or have the rear screen replaced. There are specialist companies which can replace most phone/camera LCD units, but the cost is also highly likely to be uneconomical

Assuming that the CCD has failed then there is nothing you can do to fix this as the only cure is a replacement CCD. Your camera is around six years old now so you can't get the part any more and if you did get lucky, the new one would be old enough that it may fail within months of being installed. Fitting the part is a professional-only job and will cost far more than your camera is worth, and no repairer will guarantee the work using old parts on an old camera unless they charge far more than normal to cover the risk.

Six years is a really good lifespan for ANY digital camera, so you've had your money's worth. Sadly they do not last anywhere near as long as some film cameras do.

Sorry, but your CCD has failed then the only realistic fix is to replace the camera.

I know this is not the easy fix which you hoped for, but if my posting has been of assistance then I ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

When i use my 17-35 tamron lens on my d200 nikon on manual, the fstop jumps around on it's own. I'm not changing it. Also, as I'm taking pictures, for example if i take 5 pictures in a row in the same area...

Hi. I had the same issue when I first got my D200 years ago and just happen to come across your post. It is a simple adjustment in your Bracket/Flash mode in your menu under e. Go to (Manual Mode Bracketing) and set it to (Flash Only) and then the F-Stop wont jump around on its own Hope this helps you out.

They're still readily available on places like eBay as both used and "new old stock". In the UK prices tend to be around £8 to £15.

The lens will not retract.

When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture ondisplay, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacingbatteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restartingcamera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.

Try aneasy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them)while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the modeselector.

If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • Main board faulty.
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair frommanufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.
